A new Bible designed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ministries (ATSIM) was dedicated at the mid-year Australian Union Conference Board of Directors meetings.
The Bible is called the Easy Reading Family Edition and has been developed by the national ATSIM team in partnership with the Bible Society in Australia. It is a user-friendly translation, designed to inspire more Indigenous Australians to engage with God’s Word, and contains contextualised colour prints, pages for recording family events, a number of short introductory readings intended to build faith, along with a 228-page full-colour Bible Encyclopaedia.
We are very excited about our latest resource and believe that it will be used by all Australians, and will lead many people to Jesus.
“The response to the Bible has been overwhelming,” national ATSIM director, Steve Piez, said. “We are very excited about our latest resource and believe that it will be used by all Australians, and will lead many people to Jesus.”
The ATSIM team has also adapted The Bible Says and Steps to Eternal Life study guides to be used in conjunction with the resource. The Bible is available from Adventist Book Centres, literature evangelists and Conference ATSIM departments.
