What is the Goal for NBPM?
Our goal for NBPM is $200,000. This is the amount needed to purchase paper to print Bibles for the intended projects.
How much paper will $200,000 purchase?
Meeting these Scripture needs will require about 8 1/2 truckloads of paper, containing 34 rolls per truck. Each truckload of paper costs an estimated $27,000.
Who can participate in NBPM?
Everyone can participate in National Bible. It is amazing how much can be accomplished when everyone gets involved at some level. Churches can participate. Materials are available for churches desiring to get their people involved. We have written special Sunday school curricula for adults, teens, and children for use during National Bible Publishing Month. Each lesson is designed to enhance understanding about Scripture publishing. Posters, bulletin shells, coin folders, and offering envelopes are provided at no cost to help promote your NBPM. Individuals can also participate in NBPM by giving a one-time love offering of $10, $50, $100, or even $800 which purchases a roll of paper.
What is the theme for NBPM?

The theme for this year’s National Bible Publishing Month is “Turning Darkness Into Light.” Today, billions of people all over the world sit in spiritual darkness with no direction, no hope, and no light, because they have no copy of God's Word. While this fact could be disheartening, we know of missionaries desiring to give the truth, but simply lack the Word of God in the heart language of the people. With your help, we want to use this year’s NBPM offering to buy paper and to print Bibles for the following locations: Ethiopia, Nigeria, Peru, and the Andean Region of South America (Columbia, Ecuador, and Venezuela). By providing Bibles in the language of the people, we can partner with missionaries in reaching people for Christ.

How many Bibles will a roll of paper produce?
400 whole Bibles and approximately 1,800 New Testaments
What is the impact a scripture portion has in a third-world country?
Statistics teach us that each Scripture distributed in a third-world country will be read by seven people on average.
Where does the money go that is donated to NBPM?
All funds raised for National Bible Publishing Month are used to purchase paper in order to print whole Bibles and New Testaments.
Does $5 in a coin folder really help?
Yes! Although a single quarter may not seem like much, but added together they can make a big difference. For every coin folder filled with quarters, at least two Bibles can be printed. That means for every ten quarters received, Bearing Precious Seed can provide a Bible to someone who does not own a copy of the Bible in their language. That is a difference worth making!
Is there a charge for ordering the NBPM material?
No; all of the material developed for National Bible Publishing Month is provided at no cost to the churches.
