Christian following in India is as old as Christianity itself. A very strong tradition attests that one of the disciples of Christ, Saint Thomas preached Christianity to the Southwest of our country in the first century A.D. However the Bible movement took off in a big way only about two centuries ago with the pioneering and prolific translations work in several languages undertaken by the Serampore trio of missionaries led by William Carey. This tradition was concurrently upheld and is carried on to the present by the movement of the Bible Society of India which took its birth in Calcutta in 1811 A.D. The motto of the Society is to translate the word of God in languages, which people can understand, and produce the scriptures (normally in book form) at a price people could afford to buy. The Bible Society works together with many organizations in India to translate the Bible into various languages of India. The Bible is now available in 49 Indian languages.More Details
