United Bible Societies

United Bible Societies

As early as 1932, the British and Foreign Bible Society and the American Bible Society began to co-ordinate their efforts to reach more people across the globe. By 1946, just after the end of World War II, 13 Bible Societies (including the British and Foreign Bible Society) met together and agreed that Bible Societies all around the world would be stronger if they worked together. They agreed to create the fellowship of Bible Societies known as the United Bible Societies with the original headquarters based in London and Geneva.
