While the majority of the world speaks and communicates in local languages, globalization has a created one major stream of communication—Global English. It is the official language of 53 nations (one-fourth of the world), and it is estimated that another billion people speak it as their second language. Nearly 1,742,600,000 are able to access, read, and comprehend resources in the English language. That’s more than 1 out of 5 people in the world!
While we continue to pursue translation into key languages, many times it is more cost effective to make English resources available to pastors, seminaries, and those who train church leaders. Global English is vital for equipping Christian leaders with selected biblical works.
