More than 200 years ago a 15-year-old Welsh girl, Mary Jones, thought the Bible was so important that she walked for 26 miles to buy a copy in her own language. That journey led to the founding of Bible Society with the help of people like William Wilberforce, Thomas Charles and Joseph Hughes, who asked: 'If for Wales, why not for the kingdom? And if for the kingdom, why not for the world?'
That question has driven Bible Society for more than two centuries. It’s why they’re established by Royal Charter and why The Queen is their patron. The Bible is a gift for the world today, not just yesterday. It’s world-shaping literature. It tells the true human story, centred on Jesus Christ. And it’s revelation that aids transformation: through the Bible, they can have life-giving encounters with God.
So they've committed themselves to work prayerfully, imaginatively, joyfully, boldly and skilfully to offer the Bible to the world. Presenting the Bible today isn't always straightforward. It comes with baggage. They can't assume it's obvious to everyone – even to every churchgoing Christian – that the Bible is useful or true.
They want everyone who's part of Bible Society to be set free to bring the best they have to the tasks they've been given. They won't be afraid of taking risks. They'll respond to whatever challenges they face. They'll be humble when they succeed and they won't be downcast when they fail. God has given them the gift of the Bible. They want to see more people reading it, more people understanding it and more people changed by it.
