Where did the Bibles go?

Aloha, Friend!
Print on demand Bible bookshelf
I (Michael) just finished a week of working at the Digital Bible Society (DBS) headquarters in Conroe, Texas. The bookshelf, pictured above, has paper copies of some of the Bible translations that I have typeset using software that I have written. DBS plans to set up a way to provide those to people at cost.

How many Bible translations do I work on, and where do they go? There are so many Bible translations going so many places that I wrote a computer program to answer that question by generating and constantly updating the web page at There you can see a couple of interactive maps and several tables of data showing where Bibles go. These numbers are all derived from web server log data, so they don't show the effect of people sharing Bibles person-to-person or any other way than direct from our web sites. I'm continually encouraged by these numbers, and hope that you are, too.

It was a pleasure to see the church family at Molina and to see my wonderful parents!
Michael provides God's Word to people who speak minority languages and people in persecuted countries. These are the people who normally can't just go to a bookstore and buy a Bible. However, they often have access to digital devices that can display Bible text and play audio Bibles. You can see a report of the numbers of Bible portions delivered at
With your help, we are giving many people easy access to God's Word.
