2018

Our hearts are full of thanks to the Lord for all He has done through Bibles for America this year. Thousands of Bibles and books were given away, and we couldn’t have done this without your prayers and generous support.

Thank You Lord for this great opportunity to have my own Bible so I can know the Word of God. Praise Jesus for giving me the life that I desired for a long time but never could find. Now I am whole in the word of Jesus Christ. –Michael

Giving Away Bibles & Books

82,000 Bibles given away

45,600 books given away

167,800 e-books downloaded

In January and February, gospel teams and local volunteers in 15 cities throughout the United States and Canada gave away more than 10,000 copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and ministry books, as well as 20,000 gospel tracts and brochures. This was part of the ongoing effort to share the gospel and spread the truth throughout North America.

Also at the beginning of the year, volunteers from 40 cities in Northern California gave away about 6,000 Bibles, 4,800 booklets, and tens of thousands of gospel tracts and brochures over a two-week period.

The Bible you give away is truly wonderful! I absolutely love it! I am on disability and was looking for a study Bible but just couldn’t afford it. Then I found Bibles of America! –Marti

This year, we redesigned all our gospel tracts and we also wrote two brand new tracts:

“Who Is Jesus?”—Jesus is not merely a historical figure or the founder of a religion; He is the very God who became a man, died for our sins, resurrected, and can be received by those who believe in Him.

“You Must Be Born Anew”—based on Jesus’ word in John 3 to Nicodemus, showing that even a moral person needs to receive the divine life of God.

A shareable version of each tract is available on our Share the Gospel of Jesus Christ page.

I’m so very thankful for the Bible and books you sent me. They are being well used for study and evangelism. I am grateful for the way you have helped me grow in the Lord and become bold in outreach. May God continue to bless all your efforts to reach the lost in dark places.–Barbara

I now have a better understanding of what consecration is and just how important it is. For a long time I have only thought of consecration as a ceremony or event that happens in the life of a person who is being ordained for a certain purpose: pastor, evangelist…Now I understand that consecration is a way of life. That makes a huge difference. Thanks. –Jackie

Blog Redesign

30,000 blog subscribers

879,000 blog visits

This year, we redesigned the Bibles for America Blog to make all our posts much easier to find and read by adding three new features.

All our blog posts have been sorted into categories, which you can see by clicking on the “Topics” button in the gray bar at the top of the screen. A drop-down menu lists the different categories, such as “How to Contact God,” “Reading and Understanding God’s Word,” and so on.

We’ve also added a search bar, where you can easily look for posts related to a specific word or phrase. In addition, titles of related posts are now listed at the end of each post to enrich our blog readers’ understanding of a particular subject.

Updated Donations Website

Our donations site has recently been rebuilt to make it easier for people to give to BfA. You can make a one-time donation or set up a monthly gift, which can be easily reviewed and managed as needed.

We accept payments via credit card, PayPal, and now ACH, which allows donors to give directly from their bank account without incurring any fees.

I would like to express my appreciation for the opportunity to receive a copy of the New Testament Recovery Version. I have been looking forward to picking it up daily. It’s nice to see commentary that goes into such depth to help further understand Scriptures.–Roger

We look forward to the continued spread of God’s Word in 2019. Please join us in our endeavor to give away the New Testament Recovery Version and Christian books to people all over this country.

Pray

in oneness with our Savior God, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth.

Give

to get Bibles and books to people who long to understand God’s Word in a deeper way.
