The National Bible Association is a non-profit, educational association operating in the public square that provides a platform for our Nation's Leaders to encourage people to read the Bible. The National Bible Association was created in 1940 by a group of business and professional leaders in New York City. Their purpose was to find hope for America while war raged in Europe.
Today, the strength of National Bible continues as an association of dedicated members who encourage Bible reading locally, through events and special projects, and nationally, through media campaigns. This is done primarily through our three main program areas: International Bible Week (previously National Bible Week), Media & Literature, and Awards and Recognition. Our goal is to encourage everyone to read the Bible and raise awareness of the Bible's importance and relevance to our nation as a whole, as well as in the lives of individuals.
