ABS is responsible for a number of -firsts-: the first Bibles provided to the U.S. military in 1817, the first pocket Bibles for soldiers during the Civil War, and the first Bibles in hotels. The society extends its outreach internationally through the United Bible Societies (UBS), a fellowship of 126 international groups, and was instrumental in founding this global fellowship in the interest of efficiency and making a greater impact.

From a S. C. low country native  Jul 1, 2006
After a cursery reading of De New Testament, I am amazed at the accuracy of the translation to written language from the spoken. The only criticism I have is that to really appreciate the Gullah dialect, you must hear it spoken. Without some familiarity with the sounds and inflections of the speach, one can't duplicate it. The only solution to this problem is to include a CD of selections from the text, which is somewhat impractical at this moment. This criticism not withstanding, I am very impressed with the results of excellent research and field work.
 
Lawd, ya know all ting.  Apr 18, 2006
I agree wholeheartedly with Francois, once you get used to it this translation of the New Testament goes off like a rocket. Conveniently the King James Version is included in the margin which makes it incredibly easy to reference.

It helps you see things in a whole new light. Very moving.

However this doesn't exorcise that niggling doubt which asks what purpose this translation ultimately serves? A truly 'folk' version of the New Testament (if such a thing exists) would be infinitely more valuable. As it stands the act of rendering the text so accurately into Gullah is purely academic.

An essential companion for fans of Southern Gothic nevertheless.
 
Most treasured book I have  Mar 12, 2006
This book may be difficult for some to read because of the Gullah dialect, but once you grasp the dialect, the Bible explodes with color and simple down to earth meaning. I often have to stop and wipe tears from my eyes. I feel I am reading the Bible for the first time and just can't put it down.
