First Polish-language Ecumenical Bible presented in Warsaw

The superiors of eleven Christian churches in Warsaw on Saturday took part in the presentation of the first Polish-language edition of the Ecumenical Bible, a project of the Bible Society in Poland launched in 1995.

Its text was translated by an inter-religious team of translators, and consulted with representatives of Christian denominations in Poland, including the Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Evangelical Augsburg, Evangelical Methodist, Evangelical Reformed, Polish Catholic, Old Catholic Mariavite, Christian Baptist, Pentecostal, and Seventh-Day Adventist Churches.

Archbishop Stanislaw Gadecki, the chairman of Polish Bishops' Conference, described the publication as "a gesture of courage," and expressed his gratitude to all people, who helped it come about. Special thanks from the archbishop went to the Bible Society board and superiors of the Christian churches in Poland.
