    Metal Bible International

    Metal Bible International is a brand new organization that has been started to reach out more effectively with the Metal Bible.The Metal Bible is a special Bible edition featuring the New Testament plus many real life stories from metalheads that talk about what God and the Bible means to them.Since 2005 over 200 000 copies of the Metal Bible has been printed and it has been released in 11 languages (English, Spanish, German, Swedish, Danish, Polish, Russian, Bulgarian, French, Czech and Dutch. Versions in Portugese, Finnish, Norwegian and several other languages are also on the way.

    Over the years ca 20 national distributors have started to distribute the Metal Bible. Since the interest for it has expanded heavily all over the world the need for a central international Metal Bible organization has also come about. That’s why Metal Bible International (MBI) has been started - to be able to administer and organize Metal Bible activities all around the world. "We want the Metal Bible and its message to reach out to more metalheads and with this organization we can now do this more effectively" explains Johannes Jonsson, the initiator of the Metal Bible and the main leader of MBI. "It will also be easier to raise money for specific language editions and to do targeted Metal Bible outreaches at festivals etc."

    Metal Bible International is lead by the couple Johannes Jonsson and Ulrika "Hulda" Jonsson. "If you think the Metal Bible is a good thing please keep us and MBI in your prayers that we will be open for God, so that Metal Bible International will be all God wants it to be so we will see much fruit for His kingdom". www.metalbibleinternational.com
