Greek FireBible Launches in Athens
On Friday, March 16, Life Publishers International celebrated the dedication of the FireBible in Greek. The translation took over a decade to complete. Life Publishers, AGWM’s multi-platform publisher, worked with field personnel and Euro Greek, an Athens-based translation company.
More than 100 people attended the launch, held in Athens. Guests included local pastors and their wives, government dignitaries, and members of the publishing company.
“I want all my leaders to have this FireBible so that we can all study together from the same Bible,” one church leader said. Many guests described a similar hope that the FireBible will serve as a bridge between various Christian affiliations.
As each person present at the launch received their copy of the FireBible, they offered expressions of gratitude, excitement and unity.
Jeff Dove, director of the Bible Alliance and Life Publishers, and Warren Flattery, a veteran AGWM missionary of 52 years who has served the past eight years with Life Publishers, spoke at the launch. Robert and Becky Creel, former missionary leaders to Greece, were also honored for their instrumental role in the completion of the translation and for helping to make the translation available to Greek speakers worldwide.
“Many thanks to all who cared, shared and made it happen!” says Dove.
