The Austrian Bible Society wants to make the Bible known, which unites Christians from different traditions and denominations. The Bible Society is a centre of information about the Bible.Traditionally the Bible Society is the place where one can get a Bible.The Bible Society offers Bibles in over a hundred different languages and all German translations. For many years the Bible Society has a project that provides Bibles for prisoners, refugees and refugees in detention centers.
The Bible Society has two main objectives: To provide information and to encourage Bible engagement. It offers lectures, presentations, exhibitions about the Bible in cooperation with Churches and institutions of education. Churches are given advice how to organize different activities about the Bible.The second objective is to support Bible projects both in Austria and all around the world and to raise funds for these. Individuals, churches, and member churches support the work of the Bible Society. The work of the Bible Society is almost entirely financed by donations.
