Help Provide Our Armed Forces With Bibles
Help Support the Military Bible Association
Christian Life Missions has partnered with the Military Bible Association to provide Bibles to our troops.
Military chaplains play significant roles in the lives of Soldiers by being with them through their experiences and ministering to them in the midst of trauma. Soldiers need a dependable, literal Bible translation by military chaplains who understand the Word of God and Soldiers’ needs.
- Many Soldiers are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Many have been traumatized from their experiences in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
- There are 50,000 active duty personnel at Fort Bragg alone who have spiritual needs that can only be met through encounter with Jesus Christ and maturing in the faith through the Word of God.
- Reported suicide attempts
Why the MEV Bible?
Twenty one Air Force, Army, and Navy military chaplains and twenty six civilian scholars formed an interdenominational translation committee set out to produce an updated version of the King James Version (KJV) ten years ago. The goal was to provide chaplains a tool for counseling soldiers who couldn’t understand the KJV’s language and phrasing.
Civilian scholars came from universities such as the University of Notre Dame, the Oxford Center for Hebrew and Jewish Studies, Westminster Theological Seminary, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and more. The interdenominational translation committee represent churches such as the Baptist Union of Great Britain, Church of England, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, General Council of the Assemblies of God, Methodist Church of Great Britain, Southern Baptist Convention, United Church of Christ, United Methodist Church, and United Reformed Churches in North America.
