Hi there. I'm Jeffrey, and I run OverviewBible. We make resources that help people explore and understand one of the world's most important books. If you're here, there are a few things you need to know . . .

THE BIG IDEA
The Bible is a huge book, and one of the most important publications in human history (whether you're a Christian or not). OverviewBible is a project I run to help people get a feel for what the Bible is and what it's about. 

I'm working to help people get the big ideas of the Bible, and grasp how all the pieces fit together. It involves a lot of blog posts, videos, and even have some books in the works.

WHO AM I HELPING?
OverviewBible.com gets about a million visitors every year from all walks of life—from long-time pastors and theologians to curious nonreligious folks. Most of the work that I make focuses on facts about the Bible that anyone can use, no matter what denomination or faith tradition they hail from. 

Professors and developers and teachers around the world have used free resources from OverviewBible—and although not everything that I make is free, most of it is. =)

SOME IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW:
  • OverviewBible is not affiliated with any particular denomination or faith tradition. We try to elevate diverse ways that biblical concepts have been handled through history, so our readers can think through these concepts themselves. 
  • While we will sell some resources (books, courses, etc.), most of the material we make is free to use and share.

I ask Patrons to weigh in on future content ideas from time to time.

That means at a dollar per month, you'll be playing a part in making the right resources available to the world.

You’ll also get a chance to talk me out of not-so-great ideas, like:
  • Harebrained schemes to take over the world
  • Wasting time on projects that are not all that helpful
  • Growing a handlebar mustache


I DEFY ANYONE to buy more power for such a meager sum. =)

BIG SHOT
$5 or more per month 3 patrons
If you support OverviewBible for $5 a month, you'll be an important person in my book. That book, of course, is Jeffrey's Book of Important People, which may or may not really exist. 

But seriously, you'll be funding about a pound of coffee every month—which fuels this whole operation a good deal.

I’ll write your name on my whiteboard and nod gratefully at it. Seriously, I will. You’ll be covering a few days of us being able to email free resources to the people who need them—so you deserve it.
HERO OF THE DAY
$15 or more per month 1 patron
You’ll be funding about one day of keeping OverviewBible up and running every month. That’s pretty heroic, if you ask me.
WOWZERS
$25 or more per month 5 patrons
That’s what I’ll say about you, out loud. Twenty five bucks could get you a really tasty pizza, and you’re choosing to put that money towards OverviewBible instead. That’s pretty generous, if you ask me.

MENTAL HIGH FIVE OF GRATITUDE
Sometimes there’s nothing you can say. So I’ll just close my eyes and give you a heartfelt high five. Your contribution is enough to cover some creative software I use, or even enough to pay a seminary professor to look over my shoulder and tell me how to make my stuff even better.
GENEROSITY MASTER
$100 or more per month 1 patron
I don’t know what to say. Except "thank you" over and over again. If you contribute on this level, you’ll be playing a huge role in bringing Bible-study resources to churches and curious readers everywhere.

Your generosity will blow my mind. Once the brain surgeons put it back together, I'll give you a special shoutout in my next whiteboard video. =)


 

Goals
$246 of $500 per month
Covers basic costs
OverviewBible is a labor of love. If we reach $500/mo, then you'll be helping OverviewBible keep itself running. This covers the general costs of running a site of this size and traffic:
  • Email & communications tools
  • Domain and hosting
  • The tools I use to create infographics
  • Stock photos
  • Coffee
  • You get the idea: it's boring stuff that costs money
