China is on track to become the "Bible printing capital" of the world.
In Nanjing, China the world's largest Bible printing facility will open in just two weeks.
The Amity Printing Company - and the United Bible Societies - plan to double their printing output and could produce up to 12 million Bibles a year. That adds up to 23 Bibles every minute.
"There are differing views on how many Christians there are --in China--, but everyone agrees there is a great interest and a lot of growth in the Christian Church," Peter Dean, the Bible Society's Nanjing consultant told the Post.
"What excites me is our aim is to serve the Church in China," he added. "All of this new production capability is available 'first call' for the mainland Chinese Church. If they want to print 12 million Bibles a year, they've got it."
Thirty years ago, Bibles were banned in the communist country. But in 1987 Amity printed its first Bible in China. And last December, they celebrated its 50-millionth Bible.
