The Find-A-Bible Project

The Find-A-Bible Project

Find-A-Bible is a collaborative project of the Forum of Bible Agencies International (FOBAI). Find-A-Bible is built to increase the Bible's accessibility and aims to facilitate access to God's Word in the languages of the world. Find-A-Bible is designed and maintained by the Digital Bible Society (DBS).


For over 20 years, people have been searching for hard-to-find Bibles on the internet. They often stumble upon the Forum of Bible Agencies International (FOBAI) website and ask for help. Find-A-Bible is inteded to address this growing need. Members share data on available Bibles while FOBAI launched a data-driven website in 2006.


The past decades have marked unprecedented growth in the Bible cause. Scripture is being translated into new languages at record pace, audio Bibles and Gospel films are multiplying in ways never imagined, and the world continues to search for Bible resources in their own languages.


In 2013, FOBAI commissioned a rebuild of Find-A-Bible to the Digital Bible Society. With a grant from BibleLeague of Canada, Find-A-Bible continues to grow. Data has increased 800%. Several completely new data-driven versions have been created. Country and language data is expanding to include missional distribution and translation data.

We need your help!

We need your help!

We really could use your help finding Bibles. If you are an archivist, a librarian, a search enthusiast, and IT techie, or a lover of God's Word, we invite you to join us in the search for world's Bibles. Our aim is to catalog every major edition of every Bible in every language in a way that those Bibles can be discovered, purchased or downloaded and shared.


Sound like a pretty tall task? It is really not that hard - as most of the work is simply scouring the internet for Bibles and content for the languages with few resources in the Find-A-Bible database - and then sharing that information with us. If this is something that describes you or excites you, please contact us and join us in the search of a lifetime!


Contact us using the form below and let us know you would like to volunteer. We look forward to connecting with you.
