Bible shortage due to Trump’s tariff

There is likely to be a  shortage of the publication of the Holy Bible due to US President Donald Trump’s recent proposed tariff on Chinese imports. Million copies of the Bible are printed in China every year. Critics of the tariff say that the tariff would make the Bible more expensive and hurt the evangelism efforts of Christian organisations who give away Bibles as part of their Ministry.

The Bible is estimated to be the top selling book in the U S. followed by Michelle Obama’s ‘Becoming’ which sold about 3.5 million copies. Two of the largest Bible publishers in the U S.  Zondervan and Thomas Nelson are owned by HarperCollins and they incur close to 75 percent of their Bible manufacturing expenses in China said the CEO of HarperCollins, Christian Publishing.
