Bible Wiki (also previously stylized as BibleWiki.com, though hosted at Fandom / Wikia.org), is a Fandom books community wiki site hosted by Wikia. It is a collaborative database documenting people, places, books / literary elements, doctrines, and historical information pertaining to the Bible. The wiki documents content from a biblical point of view; meaning content is documented from within the perspective of the Bible itself, and does not subject biblical content to modern day discussions / interpretations. While assuming the biblical content is accurate, the articles are not naive nor ignorant of scholarly discussions, rather they seek a different approach than Wikipedia.
The wiki has been through many iterations of the same concept of the same namespace, but drastically different in different periods. While the concept/namespace was started in 2006 as the 'Bible Study Wiki- cliffsnotes to the Bible', its current (and permanent) concept is a ministry website meant to allow people to grow in their knowledge of the Word of God. In its current form it has been around since 2013, overseen by two administrators: Superdadsuper, currently a college student studying to be a Bible Scholar, and SouthWriter, a retired security guard with seminary training.
The wiki is functional and active, albeit low-activity. Activity is largely dependent upon the efforts of the administrators and a small community of editors / social followers. Long-term plans are to incorporate into an actual non-profit organization, to turn a hobby project into a 'real ministry', as well as operate other interactive Bible websites. Bible Wiki also maintains the associated Bible Wiki blog, focusing on more expository content from the site administrators.
