good nyewz Nov 4, 2008
I had heard of this bible and saw a copy at my Aunt Betty's. I was delighted to know I could order it from this site for my mother. We have had a good time reading it together. I recommend this for bible scholars or anyone who studies other cultures. NLM

I have purchased two copies, one for a friend and one for myself. This BIBLE is a great book and my friend is thrilled to have her copy. Growing up in Charleston,SC next to a "sea island", I have witnessed this language first hand. There are some people here in Charleston and other places that are trying to document and keep the Gullah language alive. I support their efforts and if purchasing this BIBLE helps in their cause, then a copy should be in every christian's home !!! Sometimes less is more and the Gullah language in this BIBLE is simple, direct, and beautiful. I will be buying several additional copies to give as gifts soon.
DE NYEW TESTAMENT. Sep 15, 2008
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT. BECAUSE I ALREADY SPEAK PATOIS, I COULD IMMEDIATELY CONNECT WITH THE GULLAH LANGUAGE WHICH IS SO SIMILIAR. THE NEW TESTAMENT WRITTEN IN THE GULLAH LANGUAGE SPEAKS TO MY CORE/HEART. I NEVER HAD SO MUCH FUN--LAUGHING OUT LOUD WITH PURE JOY--READING ANY BIBLE. WHAT A GREAT WAY TO RELATE TO THE BIBLE. YES. YES. AND YES.
Review of De Nyew Testament May 8, 2008
This book is amazing in capturing the Gullan language and making the transition for the English language to The Gullah language. I am awaiting the Gullah translation for the Old Testament.
Delightful Jul 5, 2007
I purchased my first copy of De Nyew Testament for a friend who was raised in the Gullah Community. She was overwhelmed with emotion, saying it brought back so many childhood memories, and she couldn't stop reading it. The second copy I purchased was for my own library. I find the Gullah language delightful and their history enchanting.
