International Bible Society (IBS) released its Shona Bible translation on 27 January in Harare City, Zimbabwe, Africa. This translation makes the Word of God accessible in contemporary language to ten million people in Zimbabwe who speak the Shona language. More than three thousand church and government leaders welcomed the translation of God’s word at the dedication ceremony. IBS president Peter Bradley presented the Bible to Her Excellency, vice president of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Arnai Joyce Mujuru. Leaders from Christian denominations and churches, the Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe, the Zimbabwe Council of Churches and the Christian business community also attended the ceremony. The Shona language is the dominant language in Zimbabwe and is composed of the Karanga, Korekore, Manyika, Ndau and Zezuru dialects. Most Zimbabweans prefer the Shona language, even though English is the official language of the country. (International Bible Society)
