No matter your faith, there’s no denying that the Bible has played a major role in human history. Its contents have influenced society through the ages, while even the physical, printed book impacted history by helping revolutionize movable type printing in the 1400s.
Nearly five billion Bibles are believed to have been printed over the years. That’s a staggering number, especially when you realize that the total human population of the entire world is around seven billion. Like a lot of things these days, many of the books are made in China — and that supply was at risk of being cut off due to trade disputes.
President Donald Trump is moving ahead with plans for strong tariffs against China, but his administration just made sure that the Holy Bible won’t be on the list of affected items.
