(Nashville, Tenn.) Thomas Nelson Bibles has announced that their NKJV text Bible known as the Million Bible Challenge Bible has surpassed six million lives touched and copies sold. The Million Bible Challenge Bible (ISBN: 9780718010867, $2.99) was developed in 2005 to offer an affordable and easy way for people to spread the word of God to as many people as possible. In celebration of this momentous achievement, the leading Bible publisher will be unveiling a fresh new cover design in the title’s next printing available in fall 2010.  

“When Thomas Nelson first proposed the Million Bible Challenge, our hope was to place one million low-cost evangelism Bibles in the hands of people in communities across the country and the world who have never heard or read God’s Word. Thanks to the efforts of people everywhere we have surpassed that original goal six-fold,” says Thomas Nelson’s Senior Vice President and Bible Group Publisher Gary Davidson. “We’re excited to be able to provide tools to help people introduce others to Christ, and look forward to hearing stories of six million more lives impacted in the future.”   

The Million Bible Challenge Bible includes the complete New King James Version® text in a unique three-column typesetting with top-of-page subject headings. A special introduction section is included to help guide first-time Bible readers. Introductory features include: a brief history of the Bible, an outline to the most beloved portions of Scripture, and tips on how to begin reading the Bible. It is available wherever Bibles are sold.
