When delegates from the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT) 54th General
Assembly Executive Committee met on July 17th in Tamsui for their second
meeting of the season, they also took the opportunity to conduct a gifting
ceremony. The New International Version (NIV) Study Bible was presented to
PCT by General Secretary Chen Ching-biau from the Worldwide Bible Society
>on behalf of the organization.
During the ceremony, Chen said he was deeply impressed by the PCT during a
leaders’ conference last year for pastors from Singapore, Malaysia and Taiwan.
Because this new NIV Study Bible conforms to the spirit of Presbyterian
churches and coincides with Calvin’s 500th anniversary, Worldwide Bible Society
leaders hope that the spirit of reformed churches can be passed on through this
Thanks to a generous offering from an elder who attends Chen’s church in
Singapore, all PCT pastors will be able to receive a copy of this new NIV Study
Bible. According to reports, Worldwide Bible Society donated 1,200 NIV Study
>Bibles to the PCT.
