Frequently Asked Questions

1. I’m not familiar with the New Testament Recovery Version. Can you tell me more about this translation?

The New Testament Recovery Version was first published in 1985 by Living Stream Ministry. It embodies extensive research into the meaning of the original Greek text and expresses this meaning with English that is to the point, easy to understand, and readable. The Recovery Version contains numerous study aids, including the subject and background of each book; detailed, interpretive outlines; enlightening footnotes; valuable cross-references; and a variety of useful charts and maps. Visit our New Testament Recovery Version Bible page for details about these valuable features. For further information provided by the publisher, please visit their website at

2. Do you give away the Old Testament?

We believe the entire Holy Bible—Old and New Testament—is the complete and only divine revelation of God. However, we are a nonprofit organization and give away only the New Testament for free because of cost. For information about purchasing the Holy Bible Recovery Version (includes both the Old and New Testaments), please visit the publisher’s website: for hard copy and for electronic copy.

3. Can I order for other people?

We do not fill orders made on behalf of others without their consent. If you want others to receive our free material, please refer them to our website where they can order for themselves if they wish.

4. Can I order more than one copy?

Free copies of the New Testament Recovery Version and books are limited to one copy per person. This allows us to give away free materials in as widespread a way as possible. If you have further questions regarding our order policy, you can email us at

5. Can I order the New Testament or books in bulk?

We are not able to supply copies in bulk. If you think others you know would be interested in our free offers, please have them visit our website and order for themselves.

6. Do you ship materials outside of Canada?

Bibles for Canada’s free Bible and free Christian books are only offered in Canada; we do not ship to other countries. If you live outside of Canada and would like free Christian materials, please contact one of our affiliates.

7. Do you ship to prison inmates?

No. Because of complications involved in shipping to prisons, including many Bibles being returned to us in a damaged condition, BfC no longer ships Bibles or other materials to prison inmates.
