  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Bible Societies
Some efforts were made to provide a systematic dissemination of Bibles as early as the time of Charles I of England, and before the formation of Bible societies on a scale of world-wide activity, there existed a number of organizations which made Bible distribution a feature of their work.
The Danish Bible Society dates form 1814, the Russian from 1812; a Bible society was founded in Finland in 1812, one in Norway in 1815, and one in the Netherlands 1813, one in Malta in 1817, and one in Paris 1818.
Furthermore, it can scarcely be denied that the Bible societies, by invading the Catholic countries and endeavouring to foist the Protestant versions upon a Catholic people, have stirred up much discord, and have laid themselves open to the charge of degrading the Sacred Book by using it as an instrument of proselytism.

 Good News Bible
Because the Bible versions being done by these field translators were actually based upon English versions, the Good News Bible was to serve as a new resource for their use.
In 1992 the ABS issued a revision of the Good News Bible with gender neutral language, and in 1995 it published the Contemporary English Version, a very similar version which is apparently meant to replace the Good News Bible.
The Bible in Today's English Version is a new translation which seeks to state clearly and accurately the meaning of the original texts in words and forms that are widely accepted by all people who use English as a means of communication.

 American Bible Society no longer the pope's "Pest"
Nida had dreamed of Bibles that would be acceptable to both Catholics and Protestants, so he organized a conference in Switzerland in the late 1960s, inviting the Vatican's Congregation for Propagation of the Faith.
It is not difficult to understand why the King James Bible, hated by the popes for centuries, is slowly being replaced by anything else in the Bible Society's catalog.
When a Bible is produced that everyone can love, even though they are worlds apart in their theology, it can no longer be used effectively to help people trim sin out of their lives.

The American Bible Society was founded in 1816 from an amalgamation of local societies with a mission to produce, distribute and promote the Scriptures in all languages everywhere.
The great number of local societies represented as correspondents and the quantity, quality and cost of bibles they ordered can be used to recontruct patterns of evangelical activity and success in the fringes of the country during the 1840's and '50's.
Included in the correspondence are a few informal reports from local societies of their situation vis a vis the needs of the evangelist, their finances, and the success of their efforts to date.

When the American Bible Society was founded in Manhattan in 1816, Protestant zeal was at its height.
In this post-Puritan, anti-Catholic, missionary-minded world, the Bible society movement served a growing demand for Bibles at home and abroad, becoming the nation's first mass producer of books and achieving so much success worldwide that popes found it necessary to condemn it.
Today a high percentage of the staff of the American Bible Society are Roman Catholics -- as high as 50 to 60 percent of the society's staff of 350 or so, some staff members estimate, though no one is actually keeping count.

Now, just about everyone who reads the Bible understands that it was not written in English (in fact, William Tyndale was burned at the stake by the church for daring to translate the Bible into English so everyone could read it).
The International Bible Society created the NIV and owns the copyright on it, but the huge Christian publishing house Zondervan has the exclusive North American print rights to the NIV.
The Bible Society scholars affirm that The Passion of the Christ is historically accurate in showing that, ultimately, the Roman authorities bore responsibility for putting Jesus to death, which is an important point in light of the charge of anti-Semitism.
