Old Testament Translation Completes Inuktitut Bible

Good news! (Stay with me here, now.) From Northern News Service Online:

After 34 years, Bishop Benjamin Arreak and a team of Canadian Bible Society translators, including Bishop Andrew Atagotaaluk, have completed the project of a lifetime: translating the Old Testament to make a complete Bible in Inuktitut.
