About Hawaii Pidgin Bible (HPB)

Hawaii Pidgin Bible (HPB): Da Good An Spesho Book [ISO 639-3: hwc]

Da Good An Spesho Book is the full Bible in Hawaii Pidgin. It contains Da Befo Jesus Book (Old Testament) and Da Jesus Book (New Testament, revised). The earlier print edition of Da Jesus Book sold over 95,000 copies.

The print version of the Bible has additional resources for personal growth and ministry not included in this app.

Half the people born in Hawaii grow up speaking Pidgin. Many also speak Standard English, but a significant number do not speak it well enough to hold down a job that requires Standard English. They are the ones that profit most from the Pidgin Bible. The differences between Pidgin and Standard English are well documented by linguists. The impact of these differences on education are well understood by multilingual education specialists, but are often ignored by mainstream educators and decision-makers.

In society in general, and in the church, for a message to have a meaningful impact it needs to reach the heart, not just the head. Pidgin is the heart language of several hundred thousand people in Hawaii.

Many local people from different islands, different churches, and different levels of education were involved in the translation of the Hawaii Pidgin Bible. It took 31 years. It was done with assistance from Wycliffe Bible Translators and meets international standards.

Hawaii Pidgin is also sometimes known as Hawai'i Pidgin, Hawai'i Creole, Hawai'i Creole English, Hawaiian Creole, Hawaiian Creole English. Some people think it is spelled Pigeon English, but that is a bird, not a language.
