With partner organisations, Bible Society’s goal is to facilitate the recording of audio Scriptures into many different indigenous languages.
The importance of audio resources to a culture in which stories, traditions and sacred information is passed down from generation to generation through oral means (story telling around the fire) can’t be overlooked.
The development of these resources will be done in partnership with the indigenous communities themselves, using local church people as narrators.
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his (own ‘heart’) language, that goes to his heart.” Nelson Mandela
“Indigenous communities engage with the Word in its audio form far more readily than its written form. We hope that people will be impacted by the Word as they hear it.” Paul Eckert,Production Coordinator for Bible Society’s Remote & Indigenous Ministry Support portfolio.
