Welcome! The Open Source Scriptures (OSS) project is a community driven endeavor to create a high quality, contemporary English translation of the Christian Scriptures. This means that the resulting translation:

  • will be made available for free in at least one digital format.
  • will be available for use in all manner of commercial and non-commercial projects under licensing similar to that utilized by open source software projects such as Linux.
  • will be developed via a community of individuals working together in a meritocracy.
  • will undergo continuous evolution as it is refined on a regular basis.

We hope you’ll consider joining us! Take a few minutes to browse around the site and learn more about what the Open Source Scriptures project is all about.
