A book in our language, Christ in our culture

“Give us Christ in our culture!” This is the cry of so many of our brothers and sisters in the majority world church, where hundreds of thousands of new believers are coming to Christ each day, yet pastors and leaders lack the biblical books and study materials written in their language, and from their culture, to grow in their understanding of God’s Word.

That’s why our work along side the global church over the next 30 days is critical.
