Changes at www.bible.org

David Austin, permissions director at www.bible.org, has officially requested volunteers to convert the NET Bible into an e-Sword module. This is part of the new move to make available the text and notes of the NET Bible as part of a number of free Bible study programs. However, the Biblical Studies Foundation seems to be rethinking its whole approach to distribution of the NET Bible and other study materials. You can read about it here.

The whole "ministry first" approach seems to be called into question nowadays, due to the fact that the "free-for-all" and "donation" models are not allowing individuals and groups to recoup their sometimes large investments. This is an area where, presumably, there will be a lot of discussion going on in the next few months. In fact, I recently blogged about the "business/ministry dichotomy."
