Welcome and Statement of Intent

The BLB CD is an internet-free, Web browser-based, Bible study system. It is designed to help you study God's Word more easily in order that you might minister His love more effectively. If you are familiar with our website (BlueLetterBible.org), then you should be right at home with the BLB CD. The intent of the BLB CD is to provide tools for anyone using either a PC, Mac, or Linux computer. Though not a substitute for the more robust experience of the BLB website, the CD may be ideal for those ministering in the faith when disconnected from the Internet. Due to space limitations and copyright restrictions, this CD contains only a subset of the materials that are available on the website.

How to Order a CD

When ordering a BLB CD(s), we do ask that you would pray about making a donation to help offset the cost of materials, processing, and shipping. With about 10,000 BLB CDs requested from around the world each year, know that your gift of support is very much appreciated! If you do not have the resources to make a donation, we will still provide the BLB CD(s) at no cost.

To request the Blue Letter Bible on CD, open up the CD Order Page Here.

Individual, Church, and Group Orders

For individuals, one copy of the BLB CD is made available. For church groups, mission organizations and the like, up to ten copies of the CD are made available.

For groups who desire more than ten copies, we ask that they participate in the ministry effort by making a donation in an amount at least equal to the actual cost of manufacturing and shipping the CDs. Any donation in excess of that amount goes to provide CDs to those who cannot afford to pay as previously mentioned.

To request a special group order please contact us at:


Can I Copy the CD and Give It Away?

The Blue Letter Bible CD contains copyrighted material that was provided to Blue Letter Bible under certain agreements. Those agreements prohibit the copying of the CD except by Blue Letter Bible. "Why," you ask?

It has to do with the integrity of the content. First, we need to make sure that nothing is added to or taken away from the content of the CD. For example, we would not want a cult to add their own "flavor" to it and have it distributed as a Blue Letter Bible CD. Second, we need to insure that any corrections to the CD content are made and correctly shown in CDs provided from that point in time. Consequently, we cannot approve the copying of the CD by other persons or organizations, without a special licensing agreement. And then, it generally does not make sense to do so since the pricing we can provide is far better than most can achieve on their own.

Can I Copy the CD to My Hard Drive or Network?

Yes! There are special instructions on the CD in the Help section telling one how to copy the CD to their hard drive, whether locally or network based. We encourage churches and other organizations to copy the CD to the hard drive as it will perform quicker, and your entire organization will have access to the study tools.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
