Bibles, Languages, Maps

Eddie and Sue Author, who work with Wycliffe Bible Translators list a couple of resources for Bible translation and maps.

If you are interested in translation of the Bible into minority languages, here are two newish websites that might interest you.

WorldMap is a rather funky graphics driven site with maps and information about all of the people groups in the world. I zoomed into the map for the Kouya which was accurate enough, (if you know what you are looking for you can see our house in Gouabafla in the hybrid view). There is all sorts of other information on this site. It’s just the sort of place that you could waste hours looking at, or do some very serious research depending on your mood or needs. It’s one to bookmark.

Find a Bible is less more straightforward than WorldMap, being basically a searchable list of all the languages in the world with a record of what Scripture is available in them. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

You can also add world to the list.
