“Train up a child in the way he should go,  and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Finally, we have a Children’s Bible in Bahasa Malaysia for our Bahasa-speaking children! The lack of Bahasa resources to build up the faith of the children and youth is a pressing issue. The shortage of Alkitab for adults has now reached a stage of crisis. Many of our Bahasa-speaking children and youths have no access to them since birth. We are totally relying upon the Alkitab imported from a neighbouring country, but would our children be able to fully understand the language?

“Alkitab Kanak-Kanak” is another Wawasan Penabur project meant for building up and strengthening the faith of our Bahasa-speaking children and youths. A group of translators and editors were involved in this project, making sure that the texts have been taken directly from the Alkitab, in a language simple enough for children as young as 5 years old to understand without having the adults finding them as childish. We avoid the re-telling of stories so that the children are familiar with the actual Scriptures.

The 408-page “Alkitab Kanak-Kanak” has been published and distributed in preparation for Wawasan Penabur’s “Satu Anak, Satu Alkitab” campaign in October/November 2011.

Some features:
  • 416 full-coloured pages
  • Major stories and events from Genesis to Revelation
  • Using the words Allah, TUHAN and Tuhan  as in the Alkitab
  • Jesus’ words in red
  • God’s Message made simple for all
  • Text taken from the Alkitab rather than re-telling stories to ensure that children familiarise themselves with the actual Scriptures.
