About The Iranian Bible Society: In 1990, the Iranian government authorities closed the offices of the Iranian Bible Society in Tehran and arrested those who were working there. However, the work of the Bible society continued outside of Iran. With the initiative and guidance of the United Bible Societies, the Iranian Bible Society in Diaspora (IBSD) was established in 2015, with the vision for every Iranian around the globe to have access to the Bible, in the language and medium of their choice. IBSD's mission is to make the Bible available in Persian and other languages of Iran, so Iranians around the globe may experience its transforming message. IBSD is actively undertaking projects for the translation,
