SPECIAL REPORT
Bringing the Gospel of John to Every Home in Austin, TX

Update 2/7/14. We would like to give you a quick update on the status of the Austin campaign. The printing is complete. And the mailers have just shipped their last truckload! It will take some more days before every single copy is delivered but for all intents and purposes, we have officially completed this enormous effort! Click above to browse through some photos of the process.

A massive effort is underway. In the eleventh largest city in America there stands a building that once dominated the skyline. It is now simply known as “The Tower.” On its facade, is an inscription carved in giant letters of stone that has for 77 silent years proclaimed to the city words first spoken over 2000 years ago. “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.” The words are very familiar and the building is a landmark perhaps more recognizable than any other in Austin. Familiar words to be sure, but what do they mean and who said them?

Each and every home in Austin, TX a city of nearly 840,000 people, will soon receive a copy of a 2,000-year-old document that will answer that question for any that care to read it.

The document: The Gospel of John was written by most accounts, around the year 90 A.D. by John, the youngest of the Apostles of Jesus Christ. It was penned near the end of his life as an eyewitness account of the life and works of Jesus of Nazareth. The Gospel of John is one of the best loved and most often quoted of the Gospels.

The Gospel of John Project

In an effort to re-introduce this historical eyewitness account of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ to people all over America, SermonAudio.com has partnered with the Trinitarian Bible Society in what it calls the Gospel of John Project. Through the collective support of hundreds of like-minded churches and individuals from around the world, the Gospel of John Project has steadily moved from one city to the next with the goal of printing and mailing as many copies of this unique book to as many homes across the country as is possible. Starting with just 13,000 copies printed and mailed to homes in New York City in 2008 the project has grown to include 21 cities with just over quarter of a million Gospels delivered.

A Generous Donor

Austin will be the 22nd city to be targeted, but what makes the Austin campaign so unique is that every single home in the entire city will be reached due to the heart desire of a single generous donor. Having lived more than 50 years of his life in Austin, he would now like to introduce its citizens to those immortal words from John’s Gospel and the One that spoke them once again.

People of Austin, look for a copy of the Gospel of John in your mailbox soon, and when it arrives see for yourself who this Jesus is. He is the Truth that will set you free.

Impressed by your much larger sampling of Hispanics. But I can say this. My immigrant grandparents and their neighbors in my hometown all chattered in Italian. And learned English in the meantime, so they could live the life they came here to live. Thankfully, no ghettoizing official bilingualism for them. No condescending "aw the poor dears, they need our help, lets give them Italian books to study." Immersion into the life works quite well. Keeping people in the ghetto makes them dependent. The dream of the left in the Hispanic world.

I think in this thread that many from the old Tejano families probably can read and write English better than the Anglos, if you look at what I put up in another thread about test results in Nebraska, they probably could do better than many of the semi-literate Anglo children in Nebraska.

Many would prefer Spanish texts to read from. They are probably use in doing that for the Romish Church that many attend. So, an opportune time to wean them out of that organization as well. I'm sure that all would prefer to read from La Biblia de las Américas then a KJV. I'm sure the Lockman Foundation, might make a printing of the Gospel of John from that for SA and Trinity

Of course SA people and many of you know that I would prefer a more modern translation then the KJV in the spirit of 1 Corinthians 14:8-11, but at least a Spanish additio

Actually Jim, I roomed with a guy from McAllen, Texas, right on the Tex-Mex border. If you check your stats, the percent of Spanish speakers there is over 80%. He was very bright, and fluent in both English and Spanish. It's silly to think they need special consideration based on ancestral language. They're no different than anyone else. Accommodation of publishing to the old language keeps them ghettoized, instead of welcoming them. Which as I think of it, is just what the left would want for them.

Mike, if you read the Wikipedia article (and perhaps I should double-check ) but these are the percentages for homes where ¡ Español is the first or only language! So it's not a matter of intelligence, but of knowledge or preference. If you been in enough fast food places you would often see Hispanic families where only a few or only one member of a family spoke English -- and it wasn't Elizabethan

You don't seem to think much of Spanish speaking people, Jim. I'll tell you why. Either

1. You assume they cannot speak or read English, so they need Spanish literature so they can make it in America.

2. You assume Spanish speakers, unlike every other ethnic group that has emigrated to America, cannot learn English.

Either way, If I were Hispanic, I'd be insulted by such a typical standardized liberal superior attitude.

What I know about Houston, William, many of the Anglos can speak Spanish as a native. I believe SA did the same in Houston as they did in Austin. You have even a higher proportion of Hispanics than Austin, 44%, and I don't think that includes the 400,000 illegals? So, as I have pointed out, no doubt many Tejanos read and speak English every bit as good as most Anglos, and perhaps better? So, when you think of the number whose first language is Spanish or who prefers Spanish, it makes one sad to see all the trees that were wastefully cut down. I can tell you now, our illegals have a hard time speaking English, let alone reading it.

So, in your part of the country, especially, and perhaps in the Southwest in general SA should put out a bilingual Gospel of John.

Jim, I can't speak for the situation in Nebraska, but as someone who lives in Texas, born in Austin, I think I am able to say from my first-hand experience that the average person will have no problem with the English, even those born south of the border. While it is true that not all immigrants (especially illegal aliens) assimulate into the American culture and some are slow to learn English, this is only a small minority. Most immigrants learn English because it is essential in order to do business, live, work, etc. And even those illegals who don't know much English, their children and grandchildren are usually bilingual, so your concerns are largely unfounded. And even some of us bolillo gringos can habla espanol. My nextdoor neighbor is hispanic, many other families on my street are hispanic, and the lady who cuts my hair is hispanic. We have no problemo communicating (mostly in English).

You despise even the mere thought of there being a creator of all that is so why even bother chiming in on this forum? Why even stop by? You're not curious about anything because your pipeline to the universe along with your superior intelligence has told you God is a joke, or the thought of one anyway, so why continue to make random comments that nobody here cares about anyway? What's the point of even having bookmarked this forum?

I think in an earlier post many tejanos probably can handle English better than many Anglos can. I would still assume there is a large enough number who prefer Español over English to make it worthwhile to have bi-lingual Bibles etc., given out in the Southwest of the US.

That may be true if it is assumed that a particular background is the major determining factor in their handling of English. For instance if 35% are of Hispanic background, handling of English pertains to the ones born elsewhere, not the ones born here. So it is quite doubtful that all 35% have difficulty with English. My dad was an immigrant, yet not amazingly I understand English.

I think you'll find that outside of cigarettes, fires in homes are from the poor use of or poor maintenance of fireplaces and wood stoves.

Wood stoves don't start fires, fires are started in them.

Which two languages would you like to see in this copy of the book of John, amd why them?

Ah Mike, you can't beat an old farmhouse with a log stove. Much healthier and more fun. No wonder you miss it.
