Meet Bibles for America. We love the Bible and we love to spread it across America.
Our heart is to help you know God and understand the Bible in a deeper way, so we give away free copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and Christian books by Watchman Nee and Witness Lee. This study Bible and the works of these Christian authors have revolutionized our Christian lives, and we want to share them with everyone we meet.
Our Savior God desires all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth.
1 Timothy 2:4
How We Started
Back in the year 2000, a group of Christians in Southern California had been reading and enjoying the Recovery Version of the Bible for several years. They wanted others to know about this great study Bible, too.
After much prayer and fellowship, BfA was born as a way to give away the New Testament Recovery Version for free. With the help of volunteers, the Bibles first began to go out all over Southern California.
How We Grew
The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks shocked the country. America was reeling. Everyone at BfA heard the desperate cry for answers all across the United States. We sensed the Lord was leading us to do something.
So staff members and volunteers climbed into a large motor home for a sixty-day drive across the country. Along the way, we stopped at schools, public squares, and shopping centers. We finally arrived at Ground Zero in New York City where thousands of Bibles went out to desperate and spiritually hungry people.
Because of the impact of this tour, we decided to continue touring throughout the United States to personally reach people with the Word of God. BfA visited large cities and small towns all across America, giving away the New Testament Recovery Version at every stop.
Eventually, we also began to give away Christian books by Watchman Nee and Witness Lee to help recipients apply what they read in the Bible to their daily lives.
Where We’re Going
Dozens of motor home tours and hundreds of thousands of Bibles later, BfA turned to the Internet as a more effective means of reaching people. We expanded our website, entered the world of social media, and created the BfA YouTube channel. The Internet has helped us publicize the news of our free offerings in a widespread way. Now people anywhere in the U.S. can order Bibles and books easily online.
Our aspiration to give away the New Testament Recovery Version and books by Watchman Nee and Witness Lee to everyone we can continues to drive us. We’re always looking for new ways to get Bibles and books into the hands of the people in this country. Every e-mail of thanks, every phone call for fellowship, encourages us and confirms that people are truly benefiting from the material we give away.
We’re able to give away the New Testament Recovery Version and our Christian books for free because of the generous contributions of people like you. Join us in sharing God’s Word across America.
