Story number 3 for 9 Oct 2000

Evangelism could expand greatly as a new Spanish translation of the New Testament is going to press. World Bible Translation Center’s Brian McLemore says this translation is unique. “It is written in a very easy to read level. Someone who has a very limited religious experience or little education would have no trouble understanding the basic truths of Jesus Christ. We have made a good effort to try to make this a fresh contemporary language that speaks with today’s Spanish.” According to McLemore this translation will not only help with evangelism in Central and South America, but also North America. “I really see, for Mexican Americans and many other different Hispanics who live in America, this is a way to stay in touch to be able to communicate in their heart language. We even plan in the future to bring out an English-Spanish parallel.”
