David Willson, Chief Executive of More Than Gold

David Willson, Chief Executive of More Than Gold, said: "At past Olympics and other major sports events I've seen athletes deeply grateful for the free gift of a Bible. Bible Society is to be highly commended for their support in making such gifts possible." There are two Bibles being distributed in the English language - The Sports Good News Bible and The Sports Good News Gospel of Luke. Both contain specially commissioned articles written to help sportspeople consider the relationships between sport and faith.

" Bible Society Group Chief Executive, James Catford, said, "The achievements we gain on the outside are driven by the people we are on the inside – that's what we discover in the story of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus written by Luke and found within the Christian Scriptures." The Bible Society has launched a special appeal to help meet demand.
