The Bible is priceless. But it’s easy to forget the millions who live every day without its guidance, wisdom and inspiration. These millions represent a vast spiritual famine – a famine God calls us all to meet. Bible-a-Month provides an avenue to help feed a spiritually hungry world, from right where we are.
A gift of $15 monthly can help change someone’s life today!

How can your gift change someone’s life?
Your monthly gift will help provide Bibles to those who are still waiting. God’s Word has power to change someone’s life and circumstance – it gives hope in times of despair, comfort in the midst of grief, guidance for those needing wisdom, and love for the unloved. Most importantly, it is through the Scriptures that they can encounter Jesus.
Through people’s generosity, the following individuals received their Bibles and experienced the transforming power of God’s Word.
Safari Oliver’s story
Safari Oliver’s father was involved in the killings during the second war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Safari hated his father for his participation in the war. At a trauma healing workshop conducted by the Bible Society, he received an illustrated Bible – his very first. And he learned about God’s love. “I was delighted to know how God created me special… Genesis 1.31 comforted me with the fact that I was a joy to God who created me,” he shared.
Safari added, “I also learned that Jesus did not want me to be bitter or angry. I was angry with my father. I could not forgive him. The story of Joseph forgiving his brothers stirred my heart deeply and removed my bitterness. Now I forgive my late father. I love my illustrated Bible; the images help me understand God’s love for me.”
Codjo is a 24-year-old man from Benin, a small country in West Africa. As a youth, Codjo was a thief and he slept in cars. “I had no peace in my heart,” he shared. When he received a copy of the Bible translated into Fon, his heart language, Codjo’s life changed. “That was my first Bible. My heart was filled with joy when I received it. When I read it for the first time, it was as if God was speaking to me. I remembered my sinful past, and I knew that God still loved me.”
Being able to read the Bible without an interpreter made all the difference for Codjo. “Everywhere I go, I carry my Bible, because it is my advisor, my companion. If I hadn’t received this Bible, I might have become a bandit or I could have died physically and spiritually... but God had mercy on me and saved me.”
