Fanti Version of the Scriptures

Fanti Version Of The Scriptures Fanti is a language spoken in the neighborhood of Cape Coast Castle, in West Africa. The Fanti people are supposed to number about two millions, of whom about five thousand are able to read. At present the four gospels only are circulated, the translation having been made but recently (it is first mentioned in the annual report of the British and Foreign Bible Society for 1884), by a Mr. Parker, a very able native minister of the Wesleyan Church, whose father was a fetish worshipper. The version, chiefly made from the Authorized English Version, compared with the Otji translation, was submitted to a number of ministers for revision, and finally passed at the annual district meeting by a vote of the whole of the ministers.
