Despite the coronavirus outbreak, according to Lifeway Christian Resources, Bible sales have increased across the globe. Lifeway Christian Resources, a leading provider of Christian books and educational materials, noted in a new report that Bible sales have increased significantly. This became evident from between April to June last year. Lifeway CEO Ben Mandrell believes that the increase in Bible sales can be attributed to people’s desire to seek hope and healing during times of great difficulty, such as the pandemic.
Mandrel said, “We believe this is no accident, as people often go to the Bible as a source of hope in times of crisis and uncertainty.” He explained that people draw hope from scripture because in it they see a God who is with us during our suffering. The Bible, as God’s words to us, is a reminder that He doesn’t leave us to walk through difficult times alone.” Since its founding in 1891, Lifeway has been serving Christians and new believers with a variety of resources including Bibles, books, Scripture reference tools, Bible studies, children’s products, Christian music and movies, gifts, and church supplies.
In January 2019, the company had announced that it would close down several retail locations due to a decline in sales and would shift more towards online sales. But after the pandemic began last year LifeWay Christian Resources saw an increase in sales of Bibles amounting to 62 percent in one week as opposed to the previous year. Alabaster Co., a Bible publisher known for its visually artistic individual books of the Bible, also saw an increase in Bible sales of up to 143 percent. Another Christian publisher, Tyndale House Publishers, reported a considerable increase in Bible sales. Jim Jewell, an executive for Tyndale, noted that purchases from the company’s Life Application Study Bibles increased up to 44 percent and 60 percent for Immerse Bibles.
We give God praise and thanks for this significant increase in Bible sales over the past year. What the devil meant for evil by means of the pandemic, God is using for a good purpose.” The Bible holds the answer to humanity’s past, present and future. It is the wellspring of wisdom and divine instruction. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,” (2Tim. 3:16). Let us pray that many people will be born again, as they engage the Scriptures during this time.
