The story behind the First Nations Bible Translation

"The Great Spirit loves this world of human beings so deeply he gave us his Son—the only Son who fully represents him. All who trust in him and his way will not come to a bad end, but will have the life of the world to come that never fades—full of beauty and harmony." John 3:16 

The First Nations Version: An Indigenous Translation of the New Testament released from InterVarsity press in August 2021. Lyrical and beautiful, it is a thought for thought translation, not a word by word.

Terry Wildman, lead translator and general editor of the First Nations version, shares the background of this unique translation, reads some favourite passages and shares his hopes for this gift to the Church.
