OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma philanthropist said the recent launch of an extensive Bible resource is to today's world what the Gutenberg printing press was to Christendom centuries ago.
Mart Green, Oklahoma City philanthropist and Mardel CEO, is the visionary behind Every Tribe Every Nation, which recently announced the launch of The Digital Bible Library.
"It's what I call a Gutenberg moment," Green said of the new digital library.
Every Tribe Every Nation and the library are collaborative efforts between Green, other Christian philanthropists and three major Bible ministries: Wycliffe Bible Translators USA, Biblica and the American Bible Society. The Digital Bible Library is a universal platform that provides easy access and authorized distribution of Bible translations for audio, mobile devices and on-demand print.

Mart Green: The Mardel CEO said hundreds of Scripture translations are now available to Christian organizations, missionaries and ministries, and more will be made available in the future. He said his commitment to Bible translation began in 1998 when he watched a man weep over a Bible that had been translated into his primary language.
