This site focuses on 3 big questions:
What is the Bible?
Who wrote it? Where did it come from? What are the various books about?
What’s it say about _______?
You’ll find lots of infographics that trace themes and ideas through the Bible.
How do we study it?
How can we best understand the Bible so that we can know and love God better?
So how do we keep the lights on?
OverviewBible is a labor of love, but there are a few ways that we balance the costs of this website.
Generous patrons support us. OverviewBible is on Patreon, and some generous readers pitch in to help us cover expenses.
We get commissions for recommending products. Yes, we do the whole Amazon Associates thing, so if you follow any link to Amazon.com from this site, assume it’s an affiliate link. You don’t get charged any extra, but we do get a kickback for sending you their way. If you really want the legalese: The Overview Bible Project is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.
This nets us, like, $30 per month. So we’re pretty much rolling in it.
Then there are a handful of ministry-oriented organizations we partner with to recommend products to. Logos Bible Software is the main one.
