Description

Excerpt from The Ninety-Fifth Annual Report of the Upper Canada Bible Society, Auxiliary of the British and Foreign Bible Society in Canada and Newfoundland: Year Ending, December 31st, 1934 The British and Foreign Bible Society reports increased demands for its ministry, and sustained interest in its work. During the past year eleven new translations were published - nine in African tongues, one for Europe, and one for Oceania. The total languages now number 678 - forty of which are pub lished in raised type for the blind. Volumes of Scripture issued totalled an increase on the previous year of copies. Much of this circulation is the result of the labours of the Bible Society's colporteurs and Bible Women, of which there are nearly a thousand throughout the world. The circulation in English amounted to nearly a million and a half volumes. The largest circulation was in Asia, for which land copies were issued. Of these nearly four million went to China. Increases were recorded in India, Burma and Ceylon, and in Persia, Iraq, Syria and the Holy Land. Iapan reports an increase of and South Africa an increase of its total circulation reaching nearly half a million. An event of interest, and of great importance was the publication of the complete Bible in Afrikaans or Cape Dutch for the Dutch speaking people of South Africa. Because of its far reaching influence this is one of the most notable translations the Bible Society has ever issued. In one year over copies have been circulated.
