The original Maori Bible - Paipera Tapu - has been out of print in the Maori/English edition for at least 10 years. Now, at last, the New Testament has been published in a two-language edition, to meet the demand.

The Maori text remains faithful to the 1952 revised edition of the Paipera Tapu, but it has been reformatted, with macrons added where appropriate to assist with pronunciation. Paragraph headings have also been added, to match the paragraph headings in the English version. There have also been some punctuation changes.

The English version is the Good News translation, which is Aotearoa's most-read English Bible version.

Each page has 2 columns in parallel versions, Maori and English, which makes it easy to compare the two.

Paperback, 740 pages, 21 x 14 cm.


Pickup available from Halswell by arrangement.

(The complete reformatted 1952 edition of the Maori Bible - Paipera Tapu - is also available in hardcover and leather editions - see my separate auctions).
