Between 60 to 100 million Bibles are printed each year. No other book comes close. Presently, there are over 6 billion bibles in the world.
(From THE FAITH by Chuck Colson)
Just thinking about those incredible numbers started me thinking. So I pulled out a calculator and let me blow your mind a little bit with The Book like no other.
Let’s give this some perspective….
To be in the top 5 on Amazon’s Best seller list, you have to sell about 300 books a day….which gets you to about 100K by the end of the year.
Let’s make it even crazier
So let’s take the in between number of the Bible projections per year of 80 million copies…..that means if you divide 80 million by 365 days you end up with 219,178 a day. Did that sink in….219,178 Bibles are printed and sold (or given away) EVERY DAY. And the number are not letting up but increasing every year.
