The Croatian Language
Mutually intelligible with Bosnian and Serbian, 5.6 million people speak the Croatian language. It is the official language of Croatia and a co-official language of Bosnia and Herzegovina. There are three major dialects, Kaikavian, Chakavian, and Shtokavian, where Standard Croatian is rooted.
Formerly written in three languages, Croatian now utilizes the Croatian Latin Alphabet, a reformed version of the Latin alphabet, which also uses diacritic marks. Beyond Croatia, Serbia, and Bosnia, small groups of speakers live in Hungary, Austria, Australia, and Germany. There are also an estimated 100-200 thousand Croatian speakers that live in the United States and Canada.
About the Croatian FireBible
“Very few biblical study tools are available in our language, especially those that give a clear message and explanation of the work of the Holy Spirit. Our Croatian ministers, especially the younger generation, are excited about the FireBible with its commentary and study helps. We believe the Croatian FireBible will help us greatly to raise our spiritual standard and preach the gospel with more fervency and the leading of the Holy Spirit.”
