Bible Society

bible-society-logoThe Bible Society has some cracking apps that open up the Bible for children and young people and does a host of things in the UK (and around the world) which raise public consciousness about the Bible.  One of their best tools for engagement is “Open The Book” a programme for schools that explore the Bible in a dynamic way with drama and fun.
