The aims of the Bible societies are to distribute the Bible more widely and to enable all peoples to interact with the word of God. They therefore constantly seek new and original means of encouraging contemporary men and women to delve into the Bible.
The 145 societies together constitute the largest body that translates, publishes and distributes the Bible in the world. Bible societies each act according to their means – some are large organizations that use the most advanced technologies to conduct Bible-promotion campaigns, while others are small bodies that distribute Bible products to people living below the poverty line. They are also highly committed to various fields such as literacy, HIV/AIDS prevention and assistance to victims of natural disasters.
