Translations
As a global internet website providing free Catholic Bible study materials across the world, we understand that English is not always the most effective language for teaching Scripture in lands foreign to our base of operations.  As such we understand that it may be necessary for Bible study instructors, lay person(s), pastors, deacons, DRE's, etc. to translate our free materials into other languages for effective teaching, and we hereby encourage such practice.  However, translation is allowed only if all of the three following conditions are met:

  1. Before embarking on any translation, you must first contact us at agapebiblestudy@comcast.net to let us know in advance of your intentions of translation and use.  Written permission for translation will then be granted. All valid written permissions will be granted to a specific person/entity/organization and will bear the signatures of at least two of the advisory board members of Agape Bible Study. A copy of the permission will be sent to that person/entity/organization that made the request and a second copy will be kept on file with Agape Bible Study.
  2. All translated material must be given the proper attribution (as shown by example below), no exceptions.  Established guidelines of citation/reference/translation from outside sources are not acceptable unless given prior written permission.
  3. The translation must be as literal as possible, not adding to or subtracting from any of the original content.  Any additional commentary, clarifications, or study questions must be clearly marked as not a part of the original material produced by AgapeBibleStudy.com.

Other Permissions
All other permission requests should be directed to agapebiblestudy@comcast.net

All permissions granted outside of these guidelines cannot be granted verbally, but only in writing signed by the author and one of the primary advisory board members of AgapeBibleStudy.com.  One copy will be sent to the person/group/entity receiving the permission, and one copy will be kept on file with us.  All other written permissions as mentioned previously are conducted in like fashion.

Usage of our materials in any fashion, be it by these guidelines, written permission, or even translation, does not imply or suggest that we endorse you or your work.
