Article published about Ken Pike's legacy

An article about the legacy of Kenneth L. Pike was published online earlier today by Christianity Today:  “Kenneth Pike and the Making of Wycliffe Bible Translators and SIL International,” by Boone Aldridge (Corporate Historian, SIL International) and Gary Simons (Director, Pike Center). The article begins with the story of SIL’s founder, W. Cameron Townsend, and the birth of his vision for a worldwide Bible translation movement that would be empowered by scientific research. It then tells the story of Pike and how, after developing into a world-class linguist, he played a central role in bringing that vision to reality.
