Hope for Tanzania

Christian Literature for the Tanzanian Church

Added 31 January 2011

It was thought that the widespread use of Swahili would have reduced the need for translation of the Bible into more local languages. This is not the case and 10 translation programs are under way and a further 45 are required to cover the country. In addition there is a great need for Christian books - both those translated from English and others written by Tanzanians which are culturally sensitive and appropriate. Lack of foreign currency is often a blocker in obtaining funds to buy books or for them to be printed. Both the Word of God and books are of immense value in training up the Church to be strong and fulfil the need for all Christians to be disciples of Jesus.
