The Pastoral Bible and the Beijing Olympics

China’s official English newspaper, China Daily, brought a news some days back that other agencies around the world immediately followed: UCAN is one of them:

(view link)

BEIJING(UCAN) -- With about 500 days to go until the Beijing Olympic Games, Catholic leaders in China are making arrangements to meet the religious needs of foreign Christian athletes and visitors.
Anthony Liu Bainian, vice chairman of the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association (CCPA), recently put forward a proposal to the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) to "provide English-language bibles in hotels." Liu, a CPPCC member, made the proposal during the annual meeting here of the conference, the top advisory body of China's central government.
The theme of the Beijing Olympics 2008 is: One World – One Dream. What about: One Word – One Dream! Well… not bad to introduce “The official Bible of the Beijing Olympics!”.
