Who We Are
Dr. William Scott and Dr. Mrs. Joyce Scott came to India as missionaries. They both had a mutual burden for rural India. After getting a clear vision from God to get the Scriptures and Christian books to the rural people, they started India Bible Literature in the year 1975. Their heart and desire was to get the Word of God to the nation of India in their own languages as the Bible and other Christian books had played a vital role in their life. The lives of Drs. William and Joyce Scott were rooted on the verses, “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” and, “If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Genesis 18:14; Romans 8:31). As a result they have brought radical changes in the lives of millions in India.
India Bible Literature is now entirely indigenous and is controlled and administrated by seven Indian leaders residing in India. The Executive Director is assisted by a Management Committee, whose members have been with India Bible Literature from 15-40 years. The head quarters of IBL is situated in Chennai. Along with three other regional offices in Faridabad, Kolkata and Mumbai, we are able to bless the nation of India through the scriptures.
