A non-profit organization
The Digital Bible Foundation (FDB) is a non-profit organization: its Assets are oriented to the completion of its non-profitable purposes. The raison d’être of the FDB consists on studying, researching and diffusing the Bible based on the new digital and communication technologies. The main goal of the FDB consists on increasing the contact with the Bible for all generations and all over the world. We promote also a more complete reading of the Bible by using the new digital technologies, and at the same time by emphasizing the Biblical values, which are good for the construction of the human person and for the transformation of this world.
The technological updating of the Bible
The Spanish Cultural authorities have declared the Digital Bible Foundation a non-profit institution of a high cultural interest. That means that the main goal of the FDB consists on the diffusion of the Bible for a better and a broader contact to Sacred Scriptures, and in the end, for the development of culture. It is important to notice that the Western Culture rests on the Jewish and Christian values of the Bible. Therefore, the FDB has the priority of the diffusion of the Bible because this book is the origin of the ethical framework of humankind. The Bible needs to be known due to the mentioned values, but the contact to it must be updated due to the current technological revolution. The FDB is committed to create the digital resources for the Bible, so that the Bible will be present in the arenas of the new international communication world of Internet and other media.
Free, Fundraising and Donations
The eBible project needs a financial support for the organization of the work, for the creation of the Biblical and technological tools and for the creation and maintenance of a structure of communication in Internet and social networks, so that the Bible will be diffused all over the world.
