Thousands of India's Dalits Ask for Bibles

The renouncing of Hinduism by the Dalits late last year is proving to be the start of incredible outreach opportunities in India. Bibles for the World's John Pudaite attended the untouchable rally last month. Pudaite says this could be just the beginning of a great harvest. "We kind of likened it to what we know in U.S. history was the "shot heard around the world." That shot marked the beginning of the American Revolution. Likewise, we're talking about this as the rally heard around the world on November 4th. This marks the beginning of a major revolution in these people's struggle for freedom from the caste system. We want to be able to be there to show them the only true way to freedom is through Jesus Christ." According to Pudaite, thousands are asking for Bibles as a result of the rally. "Over a half a million New Testaments have been requested as well as hundreds of thousands of copies of the Gospels of John for evangelism work. We're seeing the people are tremendously open."
