The Bible Society in Australia was started in 1817. It is an interdenominational organisation devoted to putting the Bible into people's hands. Their official aim is to ;
`provide the Word of God to all people, in their own language, in a format they can use and at a price they can afford.'
The Bible Society is part of a large network of similar organisations, numbering 120 located in 200 countries.
Parts of the Bible have now been translated into over 2,300 languages. Complete Bibles are available in 900 languages.
When was the last time that you picked up a Bible ? Do you really know what it says ? Maybe it is time that you got hold of a copy of the most popular book ever written, to see for yourself what it says !
