The Worldwide Directory of Bible Resources

The Project

Find-A-Bible is a web directory that provides links to Bibles and biblical resources in the 7000+ languages of the world. It is a collaborative project of the Forum of Bible Agencies International (FOBAI) built to facilitate access to scripture for discipleship, evangelism, and church planting.

Drawing from content created by FOBAI members, as well as other Bible organizations, the site helps users discover and obtain Scriptures and biblical resources in the language and media of their choice.

Find-A-Bible features links to print Bibles, print-on-demand Bibles, digital Bibles, audio Bibles, visual Bibles, and Bible resources – in multiple formats. Its design, interface, and database were created and are maintained by the Digital Bible Society (dbs.org).

Data Sources

Find-A-Bible’s purpose is to simplify the discovery of existing Bible resources. Toward this end, Find-A-Bible employs data from a wide variety of reliable open sources, and occasionally calculates averages and best estimates. Consequently, Find-A-Bible should not be considered an exhaustive source for global and linguistic data and statistics. For reliable and authoritative data, we recommend you refer to the latest version of the SIL Ethnologue or member agencies of the United Bible Societies.

Find-A-Bible consists of four data sets (Bibles, Languages, Countries and Agencies) that are built upon two data frameworks: the SIL 639-3 Language Codes and the ISO-3166 International Standard Country Codes. Bible Resource Data Bible information and data is compiled by the Digital Bible Society with significant contributions from a number of API data streams including: Digital Bible Library, Faith Comes by Hearing, The Jesus Film Project, Global Recordings Network, Wycliffe Bible Translators, YouVersion, and others. Language Data: Language statistics, population and language data is derived largely from the following sources: Wikipedia, Joshua Project, Ethnologue (16th edition primarily), the Glottolog, the WorldFact Book, the Digital Bible Society, and others.
