Chinese Bible 'unites'

A Chinese Bible that took 27 years to complete is a "uniting and harmonizing" tool for Chinese Christians around the world, Nora Lucero, global chair of the United Bible Societies, said during a Sept. 27 dedication service at St. John's Anglican Cathedral in Hong Kong.

Developed by the Hong Kong Bible Society, the Revised Chinese Union Version Bible replaces the original published in 1919.

Readers will benefit from modern language, contemporary biblical research and an ecumenical sensibility aimed at making the text acceptable for different denominations, Lucero said.
