International Bible Society and Send the Light (IBS-STL) become Biblica

By July 9, 2009

International (Biblica) — For 200 years International Bible Society (IBS) has been sharing God's Word around
the world. Through two centuries of ministry, IBS has provided Scriptures to
soldiers on battlefields, inmates in prisons, immigrants, the poor, and anyone
who needs the hope of the Bible.

For 50 years Send the Light (STL)
has been taking Christian literature to the farthest reaches of the world so
that people everywhere could encounter Jesus Christ through the Gospel message.

In 2007, IBS and STL merged to
take the Bible and biblical resources to new places, in more languages, in ways
never before envisioned.

IBS-STL moves into a third
century of ministry as Biblica. But this is much more than a simple name
change. Biblica is driven to reach those who have never experienced the
transformational power of God's Word in ways that uniquely meet their personal

The ministry is motivated by 200
years of passion and commitment to the provision of God's Word, but with a
fresh vision to reach the world with the Bible and resources that bring people
into deeper relationship with God.

Biblica is encouraging people to
explore and pray that believers will engage deeply in God's Word
and share it with the world.
