Dr. Gene Getz’s reputation as a prolific author of Christian books is a matter of record. Also noteworthy is the fact that of the more than sixty books that he has authored, many have been translated into foreign languages. They include, in alphabetical order, the following languages and dialects:
- Burmese (Falam-Chin dialect)
- Chinese (traditional)
- Eastern Armenian
Furthermore, a new Chinese translation of Dr. Getz’s historic, first ever Multimedia Study Bible is scheduled for publishing sometime in 2014. The first edition of the new Chinese version of the Life Essentials Study Bible will include all of the New Testament plus Psalms and Proverbs and will utilize modern Chinese script in translating Dr. Getz’s “Principles to Live By” commentary.
Later editions will include the entire Bible together with Dr. Getz’s 500,000 words of commentary and 1500 Principles to Live By, each principle with its own QR code. By including the QR codes, readers will be provided access to more than 250 hours of video teaching by Dr. Getz. Chinese speaking readers of the Life Essentials Study Bible who want to learn English will be able to read God’s word in their own native language while listening to Dr. Getz’s teaching in English.
And to the extent that God makes it possible, Dr. Getz’s dream is to have the Life Essentials Study Bible translated into as many different languages as possible. Truly, Dr. Getz is one of the most translated Christian authors of this generation.
