The Bible is the bestselling book of all time. Although it’s impossible to know exactly how many copies have been distributed, some estimate it could be as many as 5 billion!
Chances are at least one of those copies is sitting in your house right now.
Today, more than 650 languages have the complete Bible, and more than 1,500 languages have a translated New Testament.
With all of these translations and so many copies of the Bible in the world, you would think that everyone has access to it. But in many countries, poverty and persecution keep Bibles out of the hands of the people who want them most.
In North Korea, simply owning a Bible could mean prison or even death. But the underground Christians continue to beg for more copies of God’s Word because they know it is the only thing that can bring them hope in the middle of such unthinkable persecution.
Even if persecution is not an issue, Bibles are often too expensive for those living in extreme poverty. And for those living in the remote, rural regions of China or India, they are simply not available.
Pastor Jun, who lives in rural southwest China, knows just how essential Bibles are for his church members. We’ve changed his name to keep him safe.
“Bibles are crucial in areas like mine,” Pastor Jun said. “Families and believers are too far apart geographically to make regular church meetings or Bible studies feasible. If each family could have their own copy of the Bible, they could study Scripture any time and build a firm foundation for their faith.”
But rural China and places like it are Bible deserts — areas where Bibles aren’t available to Christians and seekers who are begging for them.
The spread of God’s Word isn’t over until the Living Water floods each and every one of these Bible deserts.
