Company History

Olive Tree Bible Software traces its beginnings to a 1984 student project to produce a searchable Greek New Testament on a monochrome PC. Our CEO, Drew Haninger built some of the earliest Bible programs for the Palm Pilot and the Pocket PC. In 2000, he created Olive Tree Bible Software. The name comes from Romans 11:17, “But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, although a wild olive shoot, were grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing root of the olive tree.” See a timeline of Olive Tree’s history over the past twenty years.
