First Patois Bible released in UK


The first Patois Bible is being launched in an audio form in the UK after years of campaigning by the Jamaican Bible Society.

The prospect of its appearance has outraged traditionalists including the former Conservative MP, and Catholic convert, Ann Widdecombe.

Reverend Courtney Stewart, general secretary of the Bible Society of the West Indies, outlines the Patois Bible's importance for Jamaicans.
