The world just changed — did you notice?

Not very long ago, the Book of Concord was published in Swahili. This is one of the most significant positive developments in the recent church history.

Bet you didn’t know about it!

Read about it here (make sure you watch the slideshow at the bottom of the page: watch the clergy and laity queue up for their copy!).

And listen to an interview of the editor-in-chief here, Lutheran Radio UK (the episodes for 5 and 12 November) for the background, history and significance of the project.

Swahili is one of the major languages of the world, spoken by more people than German. There are millions of Lutherans in Africa, including several million who speak Swahili. This is truly historic.

And do spread the word.
