Thumbs Up for the Jamaican Bible say Church Leaders

Every experienced translator knows that it’s of vital importance that local church leaders support a Bible translation project. If not, the translator will have a hard time with issues such as acceptability, distribution and Scripture use.

I’m elated a number of prominent Jamaican church leaders (members) are in support of the Jamaican Creole Translation Project. Here’s a list of some leaders who’ve expressed their approval of the Project.
  1. Gosnell Yorke - Professor of Theology at the Seventh-day Adventist run Northern Caribbean University;
  2. Rev'd Carl Johnson - President of the Jamaica Council of Churches;
  3. Rev'd Peter Garth - Head of the Jamaica Association of Evangelicals;
  4. Father Michael Lewis - Roman Catholic Church;
  5. Pastor Glen Samuels - President of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in western Jamaica;

I'll continue adding names as I come across them in the future. Hopefully, I'll hear some favourable news from the Trinitarian and Oneness Pentecostal folk.
