By August 5, 2005

USA (MNN) — International Bible Society (IBS) recently added its contemporary language Korean New Testament to its website, www.IBS.org. This latest addition brings to 41 the number of translations the ministry offers online.

Through an alliance with Gospelcom’s Bible Gateway and IBS-Europe’s alliance with BibleServer.com, IBS provides online Scriptures to virtually every corner of the world. IBS currently serves more than 1.5 million unique visitors each month. The ministry’s web-based outreach began in 1995 with its New International Version (NIV) Bible, followed in 1996 with its contemporary Arabic Bible. In February 2005, IBS placed its complete Today’s New International Version (TNIV) Bible online at www.TNIV.info.

“The most profound tool to reach people for Jesus Christ is the Word of God,” IBS President Peter Bradley says. “Therefore, we diligently strive to provide His Word online, as well as in a number of other media, in the language people speak today.”

IBS’ online Scripture resources come in a variety of forms: Internet browser web pages with keyword and passage-search capabilities, resources for wireless devices such as cell-phones, e-book PDFs, and audio streaming. Their syndicated daily Scripture service, Daily Manna from the ‘Net, is available to other websites in many translations and languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Italian, Russian, NIV, TNIV, Spanish, Swedish, and Swahili.
