On 1 January 2007, the United Bible Societies began the next stage of an ambitious project designed to bring God’s word into the homes and workplaces of many residents of Côte d’Ivoire who have little knowledge of the Bible. On this date, three radio stations were to begin broadcasting La Bible sur les ondes (“The Bible on the airwaves”), a series of programmes that will take listeners through the whole Bible in a year. There is considerable potential for the 15-minute programmes, which consist of Bible texts recorded by Hosanna and comments on the texts, to have a broad impact, believes Dr. Lynell Zogbo, the UBS translation consultant who is overseeing the writing of the scripts by an interconfessional team. “We have not avoided addressing issues such as leadership, family values and morality,” she explains. “We are trying to address West African issues, not just Ivorian issues.” (United Bible Societies)
