COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., ( -- Best-selling author and speaker Philip Yancey will attend a series of ministry celebrations beginning May 3 hosted by Biblica throughout Asia.

The celebrations begin in Manila, Philippines, where Biblica International CEO Keith Danby and Biblica Group Vice President for Asia Pacific Somporn Sirikolkarn will join Yancey and others for the release and dedication of the Tagalog and Cebuano Bible translations. These translations will serve millions of speakers who will now have contemporary, accurate Bibles translated using methods similar to the New International Version© (NIV).

>From there, the tour continues through Singapore and Thailand during which Yancey and Danby will talk about Biblica's mission and vision for ministry as it celebrates its 200th anniversary and prepares for a third century of providing God's Word. In Singapore, Biblica will release the new Chinese Contemporary New Testament (with Proverbs).

In Shanghai, China, the contingent will meet with officials from the China Christian Council and leaders of the Three Self Patriotic Movement, China's leading groups on matters of Christianity and the Church in China. During their stay in Shanghai, Yancey will conduct a seminar to help Chinese Christians and church leaders enhance their writing skills.

"This is an unprecedented opportunity to increase the importance and role of God's Word in the lives of people throughout Asia," said Danby. "And having Philip Yancey join us in these historic events adds to the visibility and credibility of our ministry in this part of the world because he is such a well-known and respected author throughout Asia."
