Citing a desire to focus more exclusively on its core ministry efforts, today Biblica announced an expanded partnership with HarperCollins Christian Publishing (HCCP). Under the new agreement, HCCP will assume the direct and trade sales responsibilities of Biblica’s low-cost outreach Bibles, through the Zondervan Bible publishing program. Zondervan has been the longtime North American commercial publishing partner for Biblica in marketing and development of NIV translation Bible products.
Biblica announced today that its Board of Directors, by unanimous vote, has appointed Dr. Carl A. Moeller as Chief Executive Officer, effective October 14, 2014. Dr. Moeller served three years as a pastor at Saddleback Church before founding Sequoia Global Resources. He will replace Doug Lockhart, who announced last March that he would transition from his role as Biblica’s CEO by early 2015.

Military chaplains are unsung heroes. Their greatest achievement—quietly meeting the spiritual needs of America’s service members—will never be noted in any official record of their service. But they serve anyway. Biblica supports US military chaplains by equipping them with Bibles for soldiers and their families.
Ronald F. Youngblood, one of the original translators of the NIV Bible, passed away last week, shortly after being diagnosed with bladder cancer. He was 83. He turned a childhood passion for the Bible into a lifetime of making sure that everyone, even the smallest child, can read and understand God’s Word.
