Share your NET Bible story with us
Last month we added a link to the "Contact us" page entitled Tell us How Bible.org has Blessed You. It is always exciting to hear when someone reads and benefits from the NET Bible and the "Ministry First" apporach of Bible.org. That’s why the project began: so people could read a modern English translation, without cost if necessary, and benefit from the scholarship there. It is a little more difficult, however, to know exactly when that happens or how many are reading and studying from the NET Bible. Yes, we can track downloads of the NET Bible and sales of the printed versions, but those numbers often don’t translate well into real world effect. So we are trying to think of ways to gauge how the NET Bible is being used out in the real world.
So here’s the point of this blog post: I want to enlist your help in finding people who are using the NET Bible in their ministry on a regular basis. Do you preach or teach from the NET Bible in ministry? Does your pastor preach from the NET Bible? Does your college or seminary professor use the NET Bible translation and notes in the classroom? Is there a key influencer in your life who uses the NET Bible as they minister to others? If so, please use the link above or the comments below to let us know about them and their ministry. Any links to their materials which use the NET Bible would also be great. Thanks for your help, and feel free to pass this post onto others. In this case the more the merrier!
To sweeten the deal, for every 50 people that send us their story (either by adding a comment below or by clicking on the Tell us How Bible.org has Blessed You link) we'll select one random winner to receive a free genuine leather NET Bible to keep or give away.
