Bringing Hope Behind Bars 2024


Be a source of hope to prisoners by providing them with Bibles.

In Australia, there are currently more than 40,000 prisoners in custody. While these people are incarcerated, there is a unique opportunity to reach them with the Good News of the Bible and God’s Word.

Our goal is to place 4,000 Prison Bibles this year.

Partner with us today and Bring Hope Behind Bars. Every $15 donated will provide an inmate with their own Bible.



Bible League’s Prison Bible Project, Bringing Hope Behind Bars, uses this opportunity to shine God’s light into the lives of prisoners in Australia.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is on me. The Lord has chosen me to tell good news to the poor and to comfort those who are sad. He sent me to tell the captives and prisoners that they have been set free. He sent me to announce that the time has come for the Lord to show his kindness when our God will also punish evil people. He has sent me to comfort those who are sad”. Isaiah 61:1-2 ERV

Bible League has worked with a translation team to specifically design the Prison Bible for prisoners. The text is easy to read and understand. In addition, 52 lesson plans at the beginning of the Bible teach about topics such as:

  • Following Jesus Inside of Prison;
  • Seeking Forgiveness from Those You Have Hurt;
  • Coping with Prison Noise;
  • Understanding Compulsive Behaviour;
  • Preparing for Release.
