Bible sales surge in China

Sales of bibles in China are at record levels. There is only one company licensed to print bibles in China—the government-owned bible printing house which has 600 workers flat out printing 1 million bibles a month.

The company has recently printed its 80 millionth bible and is still struggling to keep up with demand.

China's unofficial house churches have been caught up in recent government crackdowns on dissent. Yet the government is still making money by selling bibles to the same Christians it is locking up.
