Founded in 1816 with the goal of distributing copies of the Bible throughout the world, the American Bible Society (ABS) is a seminal institution for American Christians. Endorsed in its time by Francis Scott Key, John Jay, Theodore Roosevelt, Billy Graham, Harry S. Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower, today the ABS is a ministry based in Philadelphia with a $300 million endowment and a mission to engage 100 million Americans with the Bible by 2025. In The Bible Cause, the first complete history of the ABS in nearly thirty years, noted American historian John Fea demonstrates how the history of the ABS has intersected at nearly every point with the history of the United States.
