God’s Word is so powerful and the prison chaplains really need many more Bibles to be able to continue their great work. You have an incredible opportunity today to bring hope to many people living in prison.Bible League
Bible League provides Bibles, resources and training worldwide and assists people to engage with God’s Word through a large number of programs and partners.
Worldwide the prison population stands at over 10.5 Million and in Australia the prison population is over 43,000 (only 1.1% up June 2018 to June 2019) This year-on-year % increase has been coming down over the past 3 years!
God’s Word in prisons is WORKING!!!
About 8,500 of this number move in/out of prison each year, so there is an ever-increasing need for God’s Word in prisons.
Bible League has developed a Prison Bible specifically for prisoners, which include 52 lessons like:
- Following Jesus Inside of Prison
- Relating to People in Authority
- Dealing with Danger and Threats
- Becoming a person who doesn’t steal
- Seeking Forgiveness from Those You Have Hurt
- Understanding Compulsive Behaviour
Bible League works with partners like Prison Fellowship, Kairos and many other groups who already have access to the incarcerated, to take the Bibles into the prisons.
In 2019 Bible League were able to fund 3,500 Bibles into Australian prisons through the partnership with 12 Radio Stations including 1WAY FM. And to-date we have planted over 22,500 Prison Bibles in Prisons since 2015! All praise to God!
We are expecting God to do even more in 2020 through Bringing Hope Behind Bars.
