ABOUT US

REACHING OUT TO A WORLD OF FEARS AND HOPES, BRINGING THE BIBLE TO OPEN HANDS AND HEARTS

In a world where 1 BILLION people are Bible-less, American Bible Society is committed to helping people everywhere receive and engage with the Bible in a language and format they can read, understand and apply to life. The challenges and opportunities are many. Worldwide there are still 1,859 languages without a single verse of the Bible. Here at home, 89 MILLION Americans tell us that they don’t read the Bibles they have. American Bible Society is working diligently to address each of these needs, so that we may provide God’s Word to people with open hands and hearts, helping them personally engage with the God of the Bible, no matter where they may live or the language they speak.

BIBLES FOR CHINA

BIBLES FOR CHRISTIANS IN CHINA

Chinese Christians, after years of waiting, are now able to have Bibles of their very own. But the backlog is overwhelming and there is a dire shortage, especially in rural areas. With one million believers added to the Church in China every year, the need for Bibles will continue to grow—UNLESS we are able to help provide hundreds of thousands more. Your donation of just $5 makes it possible for us to help provide paper for 5 Chinese Bibles.

BIBLES FOR ACTIVE AMERICAN TROOPS AND VETERANS

BIBLES FOR ACTIVE AMERICAN TROOPS AND VETERANS

America’s brave protectors of freedom, the women and men of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, deserve—and need—our support. Lonely and demanding posts—even those in harm’s way—leave time for reading, reflecting, and searching. Whether it is in solitude, among fellow soldiers, or in the heat of battle, our military men and women need—and want—the comfort and hope found in the Bible. American Bible Society has been addressing these needs in each generation since we began providing Bibles to the military in 1817. Today, your donation of just $5 makes it possible for us to provide a Bible—and hope—to one of this generation’s American heroes.

FIRST BIBLE PROJECTS

FIRST BIBLE PROJECTS

Since 1823 American Bible Society has been committed to Bible translation projects that make it possible for more people to read and personally engage with God’s life-changing Word. Yet 1 BILLION people are still Bible-less … so our Bible translation work is not done. New translations will provide people with their first Bible in “the language of their heart.” Sustained personal engagement with God’s Truth transforms individual lives—and entire communities—for good. Your donation of just $5 provides a tender, searching person with their first Bible in their heart language.
