Freely-Given.org was started in late 2009 by Robert Hunt, currently based in Marton, New Zealand. Rob has a vision to make high-quality Bible and Christian materials more freely available to the world—both to assist Christians in their study and growth, and to assist seekers to find the Living Word for themselves.

The site is growing very slowly, because Rob is only able to work on it in his spare time, but, with “retirement” approaching, he is hoping to become more active in 2022 to focus on improving and expanding the site, possibly also recruiting a team of volunteers to help with reviews.

Freely-Given.org plans to begin with links to, and then reviews of, Christian resources on the Internet (especially open-licensed materials), but then to also move into providing a source of new materials ranging from discipleship resources to free music and songs, photos and clipart.

A special highlight of Freely-Given.org is that it hosts the forthcoming Open English Translation of the Bible (OET), the widely-used Bible Drop Box and the Biblelator Bible translation editor (working, but on-hold until 2022), both based on our Bible Organisational System open-licensed software.
