In its publishing work, the German Bible Society cooperates with a large number of scholars and academic institutes within Germany and abroad. It is a member of the United Bible Societies and provides them with the necessary editions for their global Bible translation projects. The scholarly editions from the German Bible Society are the basis for almost all modern translations of the Bible.
The German Bible Society is a non-profit ecclesiastical foundation under public law. Proceeds from the Society’s publications are directed to the various biblical missionary activities.
