This is an add-on module for HolyBible and requires a BasePack to be installed first.
The Inkuru Nziza ku Muntu Wese is a modern translation of the Bible in Kinyarwandan, and is comparable in its linguistic style to the Good News Bible in English. Its restricted vocabulary range facilitates its use by those with little command of the written language, and it is ideal for the creation of evangelistic materials and Bible-study notes for mass distribution.

The INMW text is fully typeset including footnotes and, within HolyBible, is rendered using the RISC OS outline fonts system. The verses are internally renumbered to UCN to permit it to correctly auto-track with other versions that use different verse numbering or order.
Currently only the New Testament and Psalms has been published, and purchasers will be permitted to update to the full Bible texts when these are made available for the cost of supply of the media only.
The Inkuru Nziza module is accompanied by an illustrated glossary and dictionary in Kinyarwandan containing some 350 items.
The dictionary entries, maps and diagrams are linked to the biblical text in order for relevant items to be offered for the currently selected verse. Hotlinks between resource items enable the user to rapidly jump between dictionary definitions.
Maps and diagrams are in high-quality vector format and may be exported and printed at different magnifications without loss of quality.
Note that the limitations of web-page images prevent us from showing the high quality of the text and graphics in a format that can be displayed to advantage here.
