The Worldwide Bible Society, originally The New Chinese Bible Center, was founded in 1972 in an effort to translate the Bible from the original texts to the Chinese language. In 1976 it published the Chinese New Version New Testament, and in 1992 it published both Testaments. Today the organization delivers Bibles to mainland Chinese pastors, prisoners, followers, and nonbelievers.
