LifeWay Christian Resources is stepping into a new realm of publishing: selling Bibles in Chinese.
The Nashville-based company, under its Holman Bible Publishers group, recently printed 20,000 copies of a modern translation of the New Testament called the Chinese Standard Bible, considered to be the first direct Chinese translation by scholars from the original Hebrew. LifeWay said it would sell copies in the U.S., Canada and Brazil.
This is an excellent happening since the Holman version of the Bible is highly regarded by knowledgeable people in the Bible. I would like to see a Chinese version of the Bible that isn't contaminated by a sponsorship of a government. Still, no doubt there are good versions out there in the public domain and they should be known to people whose main or only language is Chinese. still a good, free computer Bible program can be found at, http://www.crosswire.org
