About Page

Picture of the FG Logo was started in late 2009 by Robert Hunt, currently based in the small town of Marton, New Zealand. Rob has a vision to help make high-quality Bible and Christian materials more freely available to the world—both to assist Christians in their study and growth, as well as assisting those who’re searching for the truth to find the Living Message for themselves.

The site is growing very slowly, because Rob has only been able to work on it in his spare time, but, since “retirement” at the end of 2021, he’s been able to become more actively focussed on these projects, although still wanting to recruit a team of volunteers to help with reviews and content and software development. begins with links to, and then reviews of, Christian resources on the Internet (especially open-licensed materials) ranging from discipleship resources to free music and songs, photos and clipart, but then to also providing a source of new materials.

In terms of Bibles, a special highlight of is that it hosted the early work on the forthcoming Open English Translation of the Bible (OET), which now has its own dedicated site at OpenEnglishTranslation.Bible.

In terms of software, Freely-Given hosts the widely-used Bible Drop Box and the Biblelator Bible translation editor (working, but on-hold until 2025), both based on our (Python) Bible Organisational System open-licensed software.
