Number of Bibles sold per year
How many Bibles are sold per year?
Over 100 million
It is important to understand that there is no precise number of Bibles sold each year. The most popular religious books, the Bible and the Qur’an are, at the same time, the most printed books. It is almost impossible to provide exact figures about them. The main problem is that many copies of the Bible and the Qur’an are printed and given away free, instead of being sold. Anyway, the Bible is definitely a best seller. For example, in 2007, over 100 million copies of the Bible were sold. The Bible sales in America are worth between $425m and $650m every year.
