Chinese Factory Set to Become World's Largest Bible Producer
The only authorized Christian publisher in China is celebrating a milestone on Saturday as the 50 millionth Bible rolls off the presses, according to a report in the Times of London.

Demand for the Bible is soaring in officially-atheist China, at a time when meteoric economic growth is testing the country’s allegiance to Communist doctrine, the Times of London reports. Now, the demand in China for Bibles is such that Amity Printing, a joint venture between Chinese Christian charity and the United Bible Societies, a Protestant organization, can barely keep pace.

Early next year it will move into a new, much larger factory on the edge of the eastern city of Nanjing to become the world’s single-biggest producer of Bibles.

“This platform has been built as a blessing to the nation. It will print Bibles for China for as long as it takes to do it,” said New Zealander Peter Dean, of the United Bible ...

Butch Boruff:

Too Late. Many of the Bibles available in Christian book shops (and regular book shops) already today are printed in China, Korea and other places. It's much cheaper to print them there.

Examine the quality of most of the Bibles available today. It's awful. Cheap paper, cheap leather and poor print quality.

Check out the Bibles available thru the Trinitarian Bible Society or Bearing Precious Seed. The Trinitarian Bible Society also has some very nice cards available.

I went to a Christian book store to buy my Christmas cards---I was shocked, most were printed in China. I can understand heathen companies, selling out, but I can not understand so-called Christian companies doing the same.
How long will it be those Bibles start turning up in US, running our nations printers out of business.
I do believe God will judge ALL companies the same, be it religious or other. This is only my opinion, however, I believe the greatest mission field is in the United States--we are the heathen nation, just as China.

Lance, nothing would surprise me about the Jehovah Witnesses. I just looked on the Internet, and apparently they do.

"65 Questions
every Jehovah's Witness
should be asked using the NWT"

Apparently the above should also be translated into Chinese.

Praise God for this news.

As western church leaders hold debates on "gay rights" etc etc, our Chinese brethren increasingly have the Scriptures available to them.
The Words of life to the sinner like me.

About five years ago in a country adjacent to China,an American pastor friend commented to me "Patrick, the torch has passed on" in reference to the decadence of much of the western church compared to the hunger for God's word that is so apparent in many parts of Asia.

My wife and I continue to pray that God will not pass us by in revival mercies, that we be not utterly destroyed.

The UBS doesn't seem to be connected with the JHs. Anyway, I'm not sure that the JHs have a Chinese version of their bible. ("... and the Word was a god.")

This New Zealand outfit seems alright.

"In careful adherence to China’s laws that prohibit evangelizing, the Bible is not on sale in mainstream Chinese bookshops but through a distribution system managed by the official church, such as stalls set up for people attending morning service, according to the Times of London report."
