Literature Ministries

Book Aid - This vibrant and generous-hearted ministry has distributed some 24 million Christian Books over the past few years. They seek to send out a container of such surplus/ previously used books to countries where such material is in short-supply. Their base in London is a hive of activity and there is an excellent second hand bookstore there too. If you live in the UK, you are welcome to visit and also welcome to donate books for overseas.

CHALLENGE - the Good News Paper
Goodnews from around the globe by Challenge Literature Fellowship, an evangelistic newspaper, giving Christians an opportunity to share their faith stories, and readers an opportunity to learn about Jesus Christ.

As a result of the work in India Challenge is now finding that they are getting interest from places like Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines, and in other parts of the world, particularly Africa. They are planning to launch into Uganda after a visit there in July. Challenge would like to see the spread of the paper across Canada. They are getting requests from all parts of Africa for their own Military edition. Challenge may be able to derive a French edition of Challenge out of this as well as a French Military edition if they can raise the funds.

Hands Up for an Education
