Disciples theology and polity now translated into Korean

Partnership of Chalice Press, Reconciliation Ministries and NAPAD

Disciples Thumbnail Sketches, a series of handouts describing basics Disciples theology and polity,is now available in Korean as well as English and Spanish.

Funded in part by a Reconciliation Ministry grant, the Korean translation completed by Chalice Press is the first new translation serving the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)’s diverse – and growing – population.

“Our partners in ministry identified a real need in these communities: clear, accurate information about the Disciples’ faith and beliefs for new church members or visitors,” says Chalice Press president Brad Lyons. “The Disciples’ significant Korean-American population was our priority, and we hope to can add a variety of languages over the next few years.”
