Bilingual New Testament - 17 November 2006

The first bilingual version of the New Testament  for a quarter of a century has just been published. The Testament has parallel translations of the New Testament in Welsh and English.

The bilingual New Testament leads churches to a deeper understanding of the gospel message, and provides a creative bridge between the two languages and two cultures of Wales. It will also become an extensive tool for those studying the Bible for GCSE, A level and undergraduate courses.
This new publication is commended by the following:
Professor Leslie J. Francis (Director, Welsh National Centre for Religious Education); Dafydd Whittall (Christian Education Movement Wales); The Most Reverend Barry Morgan (Archbishop of Wales); Rev.
