Unlocked Bible Notes (UBN)

While the English-speaking world enjoys a wealth of choices in Study Bibles, this is a luxury unknown in most of the developing world. We seek to develop a Study Bible which is free and open (CC BY-SA) and can be translated into any language in the world where the church desires it. With that purpose in mind, the UBN will have the following guidelines:

  • We will draw inspiration from well-respected standard Study Bibles which are available in English.

  • To prevent plagiarism and to encourage well-roundedness, each person writing study notes will first research at least 5 Study Bibles (preferably more). The Project Coordinator will provide a list of specific Study Bibles from which the volunteer can choose (see Wiki for UBN Recommended References to Consult)

  • The Study Bible notes will be tagged to show what level they are aimed for.

  • We will seek to emphasize major evangelical doctrines as expressed in our Statement of Faith ( https://unfoldingword.org/faith/ ).

  • Notes will be written in a way that can be easily understood by non-native English speakers and which will translate clearly.

  • Requirements for contributors to the Unlocked Bible Notes:

    Agreement with our Statement of Faith: https://unfoldingword.org/faith/

    Agreement with Translation Guidelines: https://unfoldingword.org/guidelines/

    Agreement that your work will be released under a CC BY-SA ( https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ ). See https://unfoldingword.org/license/

    Must be a mature Christian who is comfortable using, comparing and evaluating the merits of various study Bibles.

  • Preferences (though not required):

    Attendance at workshop for training (5 days/1 week) how to write study notes

    Access to a library of 5-15 Study Bibles

  • The Project Coordinator will provide volunteers with sample pages as examples for the study notes.
