The Shift from Global North to Global South

This update is related to the One Million Bibles: A Crossway Global Initiative campaign.

One Million Bibles

In 1900, almost 460 million Christians lived in the Global North, compared to only 98 million in the Global South. But the trend has shifted: by 2050, it is expected that the Global South will be home to more than 2.6 billion Christians, with the Global North's growth seeing a less significant increase to 787 million1. But access to biblical resources hasn’t reflected this shift. Would you help us provide Bibles to believers in the Global South who may not otherwise have access to a Bible of their own?
