Why was Find-A-Bible created?
While it is possible to search for many Biblical resources online, the sheer quantity of available content calls for an aggregator. Find-A-Bible’s mission is to ensure that the world’s Bibles and quality biblical resources are found and shared. The Forum of Bible Agencies International (FOBAI) launched Find-A-Bible in 2006, and it was maintained by Pioneer Bible Translators. In 2013, FOBAI commissioned the Digital Bible Society (DBS) to recreate Find-A-Bible and maintain one location on the internet where people looking for Bible resources can identify and obtain them.
What makes Find-A-Bible distinctive?
Find-A-Bible is the single digital platform where the major Bible agencies of the world and their affiliates have agreed to collaborate to make Bibles and biblical resources in all languages easily locatable. Find-A-Bible is a convenient hub delivering fast, accurate, and relevant information with minimal user effort. Also, it serves as a reference point for Bible translation organizations seeking to learn what Bibles have or have not been published in a specific language.
Who is FOBAI and its members?
The Forum of Bible Agencies International is an alliance of 38 leading international Bible agencies and mission organizations whose reach spans more than 150 countries. Learn more at www.forum-intl.org.
Who owns Find-A-Bible content?
The Bible-based resources available in the Find-A-Bible directory are the property of the individual members of FOBAI or other Bible agencies. Although some material accessible through Find-A-Bible is freely available to the public, other resources are offered for sale from various websites. Find-A-Bible does not own copyrights for, nor does it sell, any of the resources.
Whose work is reflected on the Find-A-Bible website?
The massive database compiled on Find-A-Bible is a reflection of decades of work by dozens of individuals. The website itself was designed and is maintained by Digital Bible Society, initially aided by a grant from Bible League of Canada, but now run as a volunteer project on behalf of FOBAI. As an increasing number of Bible agencies produce an increasing volume of content in the world’s languages, Find-A-Bible will become more essential and more challenging.
