The Bible Society of Nigeria (BSN) has announced that it will dedicate 35 Sign Language Chronological Bible Stories (CBS) to deaf people in the country.
This is contained in a statement signed by Mr. Benjamin Mordi, his media director and public relations manager, on Wednesday in Lagos.
Mordi said the Sign Language Bible, which is in video format and available on a USB drive, was designed to meet the scriptural needs of people with hearing loss.
According to him, Bible stories, although expensive, are distributed free of charge to the deaf community.
He noted that the first 77 chronological Bible stories for the deaf were dedicated in 2014; 33 more stories were added in 2017, bringing the total number of CBS to 110.
He said the dedication of 35 more stories would bring the total number of Nigerian Sign Language chronological Bible stories to 145 and that translation work continues.
Mordi said the event will take place on Saturday in Ibadan, Oyo state, where the company has a translation center for the deaf.
BSN is committed to breaking down any known barriers that make the word of God inaccessible to people.
The sighted, blind and deaf now have unhindered access to the word of God in Nigeria. (NAN)
