Why the Whole Word?

End Bible Poverty for Deaf and Oral Bibleless People

Special Invitation: An evening with Whole Word Institute & Rev Dr Christopher Wright

October 16, 2023 | 18:30-21:15
The Royal Foundation of St Katharine
A light meal will be served 

Imagine not having access to
the Creation story, the Psalms, or even the 10 Commandments.

There are 7,000+
languages in the world.
Over 6,000 do not have a full Bible.
Of these, over 40% do not
have a written form.
And of the 400+
sign languages of the world,
only 1 has a full Bible. 

Join with us to explore why it is urgent
to end Bible poverty and how we can work together
until all of God’s children have access to His whole Word.

Rev Dr Christopher Wright

Christopher J. H. Wright is a missiologist, an Anglican clergyman and an Old Testament scholar. He is the author of numerous books including Knowing Jesus through the Old Testament, Knowing God the Father through the Old Testament, and Old Testament Ethics for the People of God. 

For our evening together, he will be speaking on the Importance of the Old Testament in Completing the Great Commission.
