Afrikaans is an Indo-European language derived from Dutch, spoken in several African countries, mainly Botswana, Namibia and South Africa, where it is one of the official languages, along with English and nine other, local languages. Being former Dutch colonies, the Afrikaans-speaking countries also adopted many other European characteristics, including Christian religion. Thus, in 1875, a society for translating the Bible to Afrikaans was created.
This module features the Afrikaans version of the Scriptures for use with BibleMax software. BibleMax is a free program for reading and studying the Bible. You can use it to compare different versions and translations of the Scriptures, as well as for reading interesting commentaries and references by reputable scholars. You can copy verses and chapters, and export them to a .TXT file for use with other applications. It is also possible to perform simple and advanced searches in the entire Bible or in a given chapter or book. Thus, it would be very useful for clerics, Bible scholars or laypersons interested in reading the Word of God.
You can get this translation, along with many Bible versions, commentaries, devotionals and other texts by ordering the free CD and paying only the duplication, printing, postage and handling costs. Also, you can download a digital copy of the CD contents by paying only $2.99.
