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. 

Well I for one applaud this.  This is the first time this has ever been translated by Inuktitut and many have never read parts of the book before (such as the book of Exodus or Kings).  It's far time they did read the whole book because the vast majority of people in Nunavut are supposedly Christian.  But then, since when has never having read the Bible stopped anyone from being devout Christians?
