Spreading the Patois Word of God
Last October saw the launch of the first ever Jamaican New Testament in Patois. Some of the comments at the time were “It’s hard to read” and “Why change the bible”. There were also those who felt that it will benefit the young people born here in the UK. In this extract, BBC Gloucester's Kevin Philemon spoke to some Jamaicans who have copies of the Bible to see if there has been any change in attitudes.
