The Bible in Africa: Transactions, Trajectories, and Trends

By Gerald O. West; Musa W. Dube | Go to book overview

proceeded at a slower pace despite the fact that readers eagerly await the completion of this Bible in today's common language Luganda.

In conclusion it is worth noting that the place of the Luganda Bible in non-Ganda areas of Uganda is progressively being replaced by translations in the vernacular languages of those areas. The Runyoro-Rutooro Bible of 1912 was the pioneer in this process. It was followed by the Alur Bible in 1936, the Ateso Bible in 1961, Rukiga-Runyankore in 1964, the Lugbara in 1966, the Lango and the Bari in 1979, the Kakwa in 1983 and the Acholi in 1986. New Testaments have also appeared in Karamojong 1974, Madi and Lumasaaba in 1977, Kebu in 1995 and Kupsapiny in 1996. Work on both the Lusoga and Dhopadhola New Testaments is complete and the texts are now in press. They are anxiously awaited! Nonetheless the process represented by the 1896 Luganda Bible is far from over. A number of languages in Ugandan languages are still in need of a Bible. The Bible Society of Uganda and more recently groups such as the Summer Institute of Linguistics/Wycliff Bible Translators are committed and working hard to meet this challenge.
