United Bible Societies Distribute Record Number of Bibles in One Year
Praise God for the effective labors of Bible Societies around the world.
Last year, United Bible Societies (UBS) distributed a record number of Bibles to waiting people around the world. In 2014, UBS distributed nearly 34 million Bibles. This marks a 14 percent increase in annual Bible distribution since 2010.
UBS also broke records by distributing 2 million non-print Scripture resources, such as CD’s, DVD’s, mp3’s and Internet downloads. This digital distribution has tripled in size since 2010.
As a member of UBS—a fellowship of Bible Societies in more than 200 countries around the world—American Bible Society is thankful that it could play a part in this historic year for international Bible distribution.
With support from faithful financial partners, American Bible Society will continue to spread God’s Word to those who need it most by sponsoring the work of Bible Societies around the world. And we will prayerfully continue the work of opening up 100 percent of the world’s languages to Scripture Engagement by 2025; over the next year, American Bible Society plans to support 190 Bible translation projects through the work of United Bible Societies.
Drawing encouragement from the past, we look forward to a future where every person on the planet is able to engage with the life-changing message of God’s Word. We anticipate the day prophesied in Habakkuk 2:14: “The earth will be as full of the knowledge of the Lord’s glory as the seas are full of water.”
