The new digital technologies have drastically changed and enriched the process of reading, the interchange of knowledge and the way of learning.

The digital revolution has changed the concept of text from its traditional typographical appearance to a more complex composition. A digital text combines text, image, sound, links to interactive web pages and social networking. Therefore, there is more implication of the reader in front of a text full of stimuli. There is also a big change in the world of communication and information; this is a revolution that has crucial consequences in the construction of a new social environment.

We have to take into account that the digital creations enable us to give information, to create communication and finally to implicate the reader in whatever moment and geographical and cultural situation. The digital revolution nowadays has broken borders in the human and social relations.

English and Spanish are the most important languages in Internet, in such a way that there are not linguistic borders. The combination of image and symbol orchestrates an important part of the content in communication. Most of people share those symbols and images, in such a way that there are not cultural borders. There are not limits in the space, since Internet has a virtual presence everywhere in the planet. Finally, there are not borders in the time, since the social network and the digital creations make possible an access to communication in whatever moment.

The Bible is the most important book of Western Culture and in History. The Bible cannot be unaware of this technological and digital revolution. Introducing the Bible in a digital culture involves illustrating the Biblical text with images, music, digital creations and audiovisuals. Therefore, the eBible project explores different digital formats (eBooks, audiovisual, lessons online) and different products (eBible®, Biblical narrations, lectio, learning units). Finally, this revolution of communication implies the interaction with the reader through the social networks. In a word: the presence of the Bible in a digital culture, the exploration of digital formats and products, and finally the interaction in communication are the there main goals of the eBible project.
