“It’s the scale of what’s happening that is so remarkable. To put that simply – in 2023 somewhere around the world a new Bible was launched, printed and distributed at the rate of one a month, a New Testament was launched at the rate of one a week and a new translation started around the world at the rate of one per day” – James Poole, Wycliffe Bible Translators
