“Through Initiatives and Partnerships, the National Bible Association provides a Platform to encourage people to read the Bible.”
The Bible has profoundly influenced art, literature, language and music, as well as our very understanding of government and politics. From the Massachusetts School Law of 1647 which established our first public school so that children could read the Bible to establishing Harvard, Yale and other great universities, the Bible has a role in American life.
Founded in 1940, the National Bible Association is a non-profit, independent educational association operating in the public square. Composed of business and professional leaders, the Association is focused exclusively on encouraging America to read the Bible in every sector of society regardless of religious or political distinction.
Today, the strength of National Bible continues as an association of dedicated members who work together to carry out the mission of encouraging Bible reading. This is done primarily through our four main program areas:
1. National Bible Week
2. National Bible City
3. Media and Literature Campaigns
4. Recognition and Awards
The National Bible Association was created in 1940 by a group of business and professional people in New York City. Their purpose was to find hope for America while war raged in Europe. By 1941 these leaders agreed that the Bible, a proven source of hope and encouragement throughout history, should be the focus of their efforts.
