Steve & Jose: Asia 2011: INDIA - SINGAPORE - NEPAL
The First Malayalam Edition of The Children
Are Free
is hot off the press!
You can imagine our joy when just this evening, here in Trivandrum,
Kerala, India, we (Jose and Steve) were presented with copies -
fresh off the press this late afternoon - of the translation of
The
Children Are Free: Re-examining the Biblical Evidence on
Same-sex Relationships
in the language of the state of Kerala, the
language of Malayalam.  The Malayalam edition is an abridgement
of the original English version.

Sam L. Sone, General Editor of the translation and Chairperson of
Trivandrum Theological Forum (TTF), called the new publication
"the starting point and the platform" from which theologians, church
leaders, theological students and the church in general in Kerala
will now discuss the question of Christianity and same-sex
relationships.

The book is A Trivandrum Theological Forum (TTF) Publication.  
This first Malayalam edition is a printing of 2000 copies.  Beginning
a week from today, we hope to distribute 1000 copies over a
period of three weeks to interested parties throughout Kerala.
