Tell us a little about yourself. Word of Life Press Ministries (WLPM) is Japan's largest Christian publishin, retailin and distributing enterprise. We are Evangelical, non-denominational, and have partnered with many churches, denominations and missions in publishing for the Japanese people. See our web site at www.wlpm.or.jp/english for English descriptions of all our 800 titles in print.
What was your motivation behind this project? We wanted to introduce this NJB (Shinkaiyaku) translation into the N. American market to make it available to the 500,000 Japanese living in N. America who may not otherwise have access to it.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A Japanese translation that is trustworthy for teaching sound doctrine for Japanese churches. So the New Japanese Bible (NJB) translation is rather literal. This is the 2003 revision.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: The binding of this edition is a flexible gray vinyl with a gray jacket. This is the medium print edition and is the most popular edition of the NJB. There are cross references at the bottom of every page with 8 pages of color maps in the back. Because it is a literal translation, it may be a little difficult to understand for Japanese who know nothing about the Bible. For those people we recommend the Japanese Living Bible which we also publish.
