Les Nouvelles from Le Meridien ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 3 Jan 1995 09:07:29 EST From: Wayne Glowka Subject: Gullah Bible I've been off the list for a couple of weeks and may have missed a previous posting, but while I was paging through a Presbyterian newsletter the other night at an in-law's house, I saw a notice for the "first complete book of the Bible" printed in Gullah by the American Bible Society. The Gospel of Luke is rendered in the notice as "De Good Nyews Bout Jedus Christ Wa Luke Write." I have found comparisons of Bible translations very helpful in HEL classes and could use selections from such a Bible for illustrative purposes. Has anyone seen this Bible? How authentic is its Gullah? I have been very shy in regard to examples of Gullah ever since I heard Sali speak about unauthentic Gullah some twelve or thirteen years ago.
