(Bible Society) — Last year saw the highest number of Bibles being given out by Bible Societies around the world. There was a six percent rise from 2013 as almost 34 million Bibles were distributed according to United Bible Societies.
There were a total of 428.2 million scriptures being given out by international Bible Societies in 2014, including full Bibles, Testaments, Gospels and other smaller scripture items.
Figures show that Bible Society in England and Wales sold and gave out 20,986 Bibles, 1,364 Testaments and 21,385 Gospels. However, it seems that people from England and Wales have taken to reading the Bible online with 90,000 people downloading the Bible or part of it in audio form.
