Assistant Bishop Rev. George Fupe, Dean of Azania Front Cathedral, thanked everyone involved in producing the books and urged church leaders to use them in their ministries. During the ceremony the congregation sang the hymn ‘Lord Jesus Christ, the cause is thine’.
Book no. 6, The Child Within (Undani Wa Mtoto) aims to promote resilience in children who have suffered grief and loss. Book no. 7, Call to Me (Niite) consists of 20 Bible studies on topics related to HiV and AIDS.
The books were translated by three Tanzanians - Mrs Wandoa Mwambu, Dr Paschal Mdoe and Canon Alfred Sebahene.
The Swahili editions were funded by two German church agencies - Churches Helping Churches and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hessen and Nassau.
