Highly esteemed Maori Bible of 1868 available again

Highly esteemed Maori Bible of 1868 available again

The Trinitarian Bible Society of Aotearoa New Zealand is very thankful to be able to present a reprint of the 1868 Maori translation of the Bible. This was the first translation into Te Reo Maori, the culmination of 40 years of labour. This translation has been out of print for many years, and could only be purchased at great cost.

The 1868 translation is an accurate translation in classical Maori, faithful to the Divinely-preserved Hebrew and Greek manuscripts that the church of God has always used. This proven translation has been highly acclaimed for its idiomatic relevance to the Maori people.

This electronically typeset reprint retains all the features of the 1868 translation including macrons. It is well-bound, and has a black cover with gold letters.

The Trinitarian Bible Society acknowledges its debt to native and university level trained Maori speakers, including those of the Tauranga Wananga o Aotearoa, for their services to this project.

The Trinitarian Bible Society wishes that the resolution of Ruini celebrating the completion of the translation be fulfilled: "That the Word of God is the only true source of knowledge in Divine things. Let no one despise a small beginning; a match yields but a small flame, but who can extinguish the forest it has lit!"

Proverbs 9:10: Te timatanga o te whakaaro nui ko te wehi ki a Ihowa; he matauranga hoki te mohiotanga ki nga mea tapu.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
