The First Nations Version Project is a retelling of the Sacred Writings for Native Americans and other English speaking First Nations People.
FNV is a new translation and paraphrase of the Bible in the tradition of the storytellers from the oral cultures.
The First Nations Version New Testament (and Genesis)!
As of June 2015 Rain Ministries and OneBook of Canada have partnered together, with the help of Wycliffe Associates, to create a First Nations Version New Testament using a group translation method. This increases acurancy and church ownership, while enhancing translation speed.
This New Testament is a unique part of the First Nations Version Project which includes the following.
1st Goal: Publish “Birth of the Chosen One” a book for children of all ages. Completed Nov 1st 2013.
2nd Goal: Publish “When the Great Spirit Walked Among Us” combining the four Gospels into one narrative, by August 2014. Now available for orders!
3rd Goal: In partnership with OneBook create a FNV New Testament by the Summer of 2016!
