A range of Scriptures in non-English languages is always stocked at Bible House in Belfast consisting of Bibles and New Testaments in print format in approximately 50 languages. There are also some Children’s editions. Availability can vary as this is part of a stock of Scripture in some 100 languages held in our Global Scripture Service.
This service is provided in recognition of the growing migrant communities in Northern Ireland and our desire to help both churches and individuals who have opportunities to provide Scriptures as a gift to people they encounter in their heart langugae.
While we aim to provide multiple copies of particular editions for distribution projects, we are also happy to order single copies for individuals as part of our regular ordering process. We usually place an order each month. In order to keep costs to a minimum, delivery is by sea freight and may take 2 – 3 weeks.
This service does not extend to audio/visual products or to single books (Gospels) but it does provide access to editions for Bible students, especially in Ancient Greek, Hebrew and Latin, and also some diglot editions e.g. English with Chinese, Polish, Hungarian or Arabic.
You can discuss your specific requirements with Campbell at Bible House (telephone 90326577) who will advise on current availability and cost. Please feel free to call into Bible House and see our available stock – we are less than 100m from City Hall in Belfast.
Bibles and New Testaments in the languages listed below are normally held in stock. Prices vary but start at £3.99 for a New Testament and £9.99 for a Bible.
