This organization was founded in 1816, and past presidents include John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court Justice.
Its magazine, now called The Record, was first published in 1818 and is the second longest running publication in the United States. Talk about a track record!
Specifically, I've been a member of the
for 15 years or so. Every month features a different country or group of countries and all donations that month go in their entirety to shipping and distributing Bibles in those areas. You receive a brochure highlighting the geographical and political statistics from that area as well as the ministries happening there.
It costs $4.00 a Bible, so you can donate any multiple of 4 and know how many Bibles you're helping distribute that month. You can sign up for automatic electronic funds transfer, too, which makes it so easy. Click on the BAM logo if you're interested in becoming a member.
Even if you're not able to support ABS at this time, by all means, visit their website, which is a great Bible resource. You can even sign up for a variety of email devotionals.
In fact, the ABS runs the Bible Resource Center, which has tons more great information about the Bible.
