AN INTRODUCTION TO BANGLADESH BIBLE SOCIETY
Since 1953, Bangladesh Bible Society (BBS) has been successfully operating in Bangladesh in order to meet the needs of Bible in the churches of Bangladesh. After the liberation war of 1971, BBS started producing full Bibles/scriptures/New Testaments not only in Bangla language but also in different ethnic languages so that every Christian person can have his/her own Bible. Besides, we want to ensure that non-literate and blind people can also listen to the living Word of God through audio technology. We not only translate Bible but also want to make our distribution/sale meaningful; not just giving away the Bibles. That’s why we organize different kinds of programs with local churches, hostels and for people in different professions like – doctors/nurses media etc. We want to encourage adults, young people and children by the Word of God through these programs. Our desire is to build up our young generation as future good Christian leaders for our society. Bangladesh Bible Society is situated at 390, New Eskaton Road, Dhaka-1000, and Bangladesh. It is registered as an NGO with the NGO Affairs Bureau (FDR Reg. No. 54).
Bangladesh Bible Society has a vision to ensure that all people have their own Bible in their heart language so that lives are transformed with the interaction of Word of God.
Bangladesh Bible Society exists to provide Scriptures to all people in the language they speak, at the price they may afford, at format they want and carry out all the consultations with Churches and Para-Churches.
