Founded in 2004, the Theological Book Network has shipped over 2 million books to more than 1,400 schools in 90 countries.

Why Books?

By 2020, it is expected that 65% of all Christians will live in the Global South*.

Christianity is growing rapidly throughout the Majority World, but there is a shortage of high-quality theological books. Without these resources, schools struggle to train the next generation of church leaders.

With your help, we can change that.

"[The Network's] strategies of going to nation after nation, country after country, making books available to indigenous movements that are building kingdom communities and leaders, is contributing in a powerful way."

Dr. Bobby Gupta, President and Director of HBI, India

"We have no doubt that the scholarly content of the books will enrich the library’s collection. The majority of the titles are recent and have strongly covered contemporary issues in theological studies. Our seminarians will certainly find these materials very useful."

Augusta Osagie, Seminary Librarian, SS Peter and Paul Seminary, Nigeria

Our Partners

We partner with over 50 well-respected Christian organizations, publishers, seminaries and universities to equip leaders with high-quality theological resources.

We just reached 1,000 likes! Thank you! To our new friends, hello and please allow us to introduce ourselves. We are the Theological Book Network. We are a nonprofit on a mission to strengthen the Majority World church by supporting Christian educational institutions with theological resources. Since 2004, we have shipped over 2 million books to more than 1,400 schools in 90 countries. By 2020, it is expected that 65% of all Christians will live in the Global South. Christianity is growing rapidly throughout the Majority World, but there is a shortage of high-quality theological books. Without these resources, schools struggle to train the next generation of church leaders. We envision a day when every Christian College, university, and seminary in the Majority World has access to the educational resources it needs to equip church leaders. To learn more about who we are, what we do, and how you can become involved, please visit: theologicalbooknetwork.org

"It is really helpful to have Theological Book Network since we are going through challenges as we develop our library for both local and international student use. Any good builder cares about a sturdy foundation and in our college, theological resources are our building blocks." Rev. Lawrence Kwarteng, Maranatha Bible College, Philippines

Known for the high quality of our work, we have built relationships with hundreds of highly regarded theological schools and graduate programs around the world. Over the past 14 years, we have placed over 2 million books in over 1,4000 schools in 90 countries.

Last week, Jeff and Justin were warmly welcomed to Colombo Theological Seminary in Sri Lanka. Some highlights included touring the CTS campus with the principal, Ivor Pooblan, joining a chapel service led in three different languages (Sinhala, Tamil, and English), and observing Academic Dean, Dr. Mano Emmanuel, teaching a systematic theology class in English.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all our friends at South Asia Institute of Advanced Christian Studies for their partnership and hospitality. Last week in Bangalore, Jeff and Justin's time connecting with leadership, faculty, students, and staff was richly rewarding. It is clear to us they are having an important impact in South Asian Christian education and we encourage you to read more about them here: http://www.saiacs.org/

Jeff with students of the Theological Librarianship program at SAIACS in Bangalore, India. After lunch, these students, representing 6 different schools, asked for time to learn about the Network's ministry and how to partner with us, citing the great need for biblical and theological resources.
