American Bible Society is a Bible society based in the United States that publishes and distributes interconfessional translations of Christian Bible [1] and provides study aids and other tools to help people engage with it. Founded on May 11, 1816, in New York City, it is best known for its Good News Translation of the Bible, written in the contemporary vernacular. American Bible Society also publishes the Contemporary English Version.

American Bible Society is a member of the United Bible Societies, Forum of Bible Agencies International, Every Tribe Every Nation and not affiliated with any single denomination. However, it does not consider Mormons or Jehovah's Witnesses to be Christians.[2]

American Bible Society's headquarters relocated from 1865 Broadway in New York City to Philadelphia in August 2015.[3]
