Satisfying Africa’s Thirst for God’s Word

We publish Bibles and books for the Church in Africa.

Join us in experiencing Lent through African Eyes!

Africans now and throughout history have shaped Christian thought and contemplative practice. For 40 days, beginning February 26, 2020, explore the Lenten themes of prayer, fasting, repentance, and alms-giving through our Lent Devotional.

630 million Christians are in Africa today, over twice as many as in North America. This vibrant Church is facing a discipleship crisis:

Over 208 Million

believers in Africa are without a Bible.

Up to 80%

of African pastors don’t have formal training.

Over 500 Million

believers in Africa need a trained pastor.

What We Do

Africa Study Bible

Unlike most study Bibles, which are written by westerners, the Africa Study Bible was uniquely created by Africans as a gift to their continent and to the global Church. Its over 2,600 notes created by more than 350 contributors from 50 countries make it the most ethnically and geographically diverse, biblical resource ever published.

God's Word for Africa

God’s Word can change the lives and ministry of pastors and leaders. Our God’s Word for Africa program places a Bible in the hands of those who need it most, often with training, at little or no cost.


Biblical truth, when not applied in local contexts, can be like water disappearing in the sand. Oasis provides an ongoing supply of lifegiving water by discovering, developing, and distributing books by African authors who communicate Truth clearly in African contexts.

“The Africa Study Bible is really, really significant to me in pastoring the church. It has exposed me to what others are thinking and doing. It has broadened my understanding. The examples are happening in our cultures. It widens our scope of understanding the Bible.”

Previously, Bagos used 5-6 books in sermon preparation, but now this Bible has simplified the process for him.

With your help we can continue to satisfy Africa's thirst for God's Word.
