About this title


The story of William Cameron Townsend founder of the Wyliffe Bible Translators and the Summer Institute of Linguistics. From rear cover: When William Cameron Townsend arrived in Guatemala as a Bible salesman in 1917, the missionaries took one look and said, "That skinny Townsend won't last two months." They were wrong. Today at 85 Uncle Cam is still going strong, still working to bring the Bible to people whose languages have never been written. In the intervening 59 years he has packed several lifetimes of achievements including (1) learning an Indian language, translating the New Testament into it and teaching the Indians to read, and (2) starting the Summer Institute of Linguistics and the Wycliffe Bible Translators, the largest linguistic organization in the world whose more than 2000 members have reduced to writing more than 500 languages in 23 countries and translated portions of the Bible into most of them.
