Bible translated into Inuit language

Exciting article about a new translation of the bible into a Inuit language, only took 34 years!

This bit made chuckle:- “Another example is the translation of shepherd, which appears in the Bible often. In Inuktitut a shepherd tends to children of dogs, not goats and sheep, which aren’t found in Nunavut.”

Not sure why, but the arctic has something of a fascination for me, and seeing the gospel reach the very extremes of the world is exciting stuff.
