The new Chinese Book of Mormon is out!
10/22/2007. I just received my first shipment of the new translation of the traditional Chinese Book of Mormon, catalog # 34407-265. This is in "traditional script" which is in use in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Indonesia. For people from mainland China, the Book of Mormon in "simplified script" is appropriate, with catalog suffix -266. I expect the simplified script version of the new translation/edition will be forthcoming.
This new edition has the "Guide to the Scriptures" and footnotes. The "Guide to the Scriptures" is printed western-style, left-to-right, and starts at what we consider the front of the book. The Book of Mormon proper is still printed traditional style, top to bottom, and right-to-left, starting at what we consider to be the back of the book. Therefore, the book reads "outside in".
The font is also larger than the previous traditional script edition that was printed in Taiwan or Hong Kong.
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
