An Update on the German Translation-Pray
I must report that the translation of the German version is stalled. Late last year, the German translator, James Kramer, experienced some difficulties. I cannot tell you what they are now, but they are enough that he is no longer translating, at this time. Brother Jim is a beloved and respected brother and fellow laborer. Please pray for him and that, if he cannot return to the work, the Lord will provide a new translator. I have decided to leave the information about the translation on our web site. It is below. I do this so that you will know what it was all about.
I am attempting to produce a new translation of our Book of Redemption into German. Brother Kramer did that, but it had not been reviewed. I am using the King James Bible, his translation, the Luther translation, the Elberfelder, and the Schlachter (1951 and 2000) along with two computer translations, the Received Greek Text, and Hebrew Masoretic Text to help me do this. The goal is that the translation be King James equivalent. It is desired that the Book of Redemption in German be made available on our web site, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles. Please pray for the following, according to the will of God:
1. For me, that I will do an accurate job, and
2. That God will provide a German national to review the translation.
3. That God will use the German Book of Redemption to win many souls to Christ.
