The “Digital Bible” page on Facebook has over 10 million fans. The idea is simple: Scripture verses are posted every day and Facebook users have the opportunity to leave their comments – as they engage with God’s Word and with each other. It is not unusual for posted verses to receive several hundred comments and to be ‘liked’ by several thousand users.
The Bible page was launched by Mark Brown, former CEO of the Bible Society New Zealand, as an experiment in presenting the Scriptures in the Digital Space. The page is now managed by the United Bible Societies.
