The Bible in Spanish is a number-one seller all across the Spanish-speaking world. From The U.S., Mexico, and Central America to South America, Spain, and other pockets of Europe, the Bible in Spanish reaches hundreds of millions of Latino believers. God's Word, after all, did not come down in English, and so North Americans are hard pressed to lay exclusive claim to its dictates.

Some Spanish Bibles come in bilingual translations, making them perfect for students not only of Christ but of Spanish as well (or English, depending on how you look at it). Over the centuries, the leading linguistic scholars have been called upon to make language-sensitive translations that take into account subtle shades of meaning that would otherwise be lost in the conversion. The choice of one word over another can have huge ramifications when Scripture is interpreted, and so care for secondary and tertiary definitions is a must.

Where To Get Your Bible in Spanish

Because Spanish is so widely spoken throughout the U.S., it's often easy to find Spanish-language Bibles in ordinary bookstores. Your local Barnes & Noble or Borders probably carries several very good Spanish translations, at least in heavily Latino areas such as Miami and Los Angeles. If you live in a part of the country that lacks a prominent Spanish-speaking population, your best bet is to go online and search.

Online Christian book stores carry not only Spanish Bibles, but Dutch Bibles, Chinese Bibles, French Bibles, and those of just about every other country. Right now it's estimated that there are some 2000 foreign-language translations in print. So unless you speak some highly obscure island dialect (in which case you wouldn't be reading this site), you can find an interpretation of Scripture that suits you and your heritage.
