Pidgin Bible published: ‘God make da sky and da world’


“Da Good An Spesho Book” is subtitled the “Hawai‘i Pidgin Bible.”

Wycliffe Bible Translators — the same people who brought us the immensely popular “Da Jesus Book: Hawaiian Pidgin New Testament” — have spent the last 20 years translating the Old Testament from the original Hebrew into contemporary local Pidgin English under the careful guidance of the Rev. Earl Morihara and linguistics professor Joseph Grimes.
