Bible Society donates Bibles worth ₦21.7 million in 2023

by Church Times

The Bible Society of Nigeria (BSN) has donated assorted Bibles worth ₦21.7 million in the year 2023 as part of its free Bible distribution drive. 

The Media Manager of the organisation, Mr Ben Mordi in a statement said beneficiaries of the free Bibles distributed included prison inmates and churches.

Other beneficiaries according to him include Christian fellowships and organisations, schools for the blind, and individual members of the public, among others. 

The value of the Bibles donated to the sighted was ₦11.5 million, while the 146 complete sets of Braille Bible given to people with visual disabilities cost ₦10.2 million. This reflects a 30% increase over the organisation’s free Scriptures worth ₦16.7 million donated to the less privileged in the year 2022. 

 A complete set of the Braille Bible, which comes in 37 volumes according to the statement costs ₦70,000. The organisation carries out the free distribution programme with funds donated by members of the Bible-A-Month Club, Special Members, corporate organisations, churches, and individual donors for the Braille Bible project – You Can Be Their Eyes (YCBTE).

 Through free Bible distribution and other laudable programmes, the BSN has continued to break every known barrier that makes the Word of God inaccessible to people.

The Bible Society of Nigeria is a not-for-profit interdenominational Christian organisation that translates the Bible into local languages as well as publishes, distributes, and raises funds for Bible work.

It organises life-transforming programmes to help people engage with the Word of God. So far, it has produced the complete Bible in 27 Nigerian languages, while translation/revision is ongoing in nine different languages at their respective stages of completion.
