Adopt a Bookshop!

During this momentous time in Egypt’s history, our network of 14 Bible Society bookshops is crucial for providing the Bible to Egypt. They make God’s Word easily available to many who would never have access otherwise. Most Christian outlets are confined to church grounds, and most Egyptians are unaware of their existence. But our bookshops are right out in the public arena, making the Scriptures accessible to all.

These bookshops also serve as Resource Centers for our Scripture engagement programs, such as post literacy, religious festivals, Bible competitions, and special distributions to students, orphans, prisoners, refugees, and the handicapped. Our children’s programs impact a half a million children each year!

However, bookstore operations are largely a losing business. In order to reach the widest audience, our selling prices do not cover the real costs involved. We’re left with a choice: become sustainable by raising prices and thus making Bibles unaffordable to many in Egypt, or ask individual partners or partnering churches to adopt a bookshop and cover the gap.

One of our bookshops can be an instant outreach for your church’s missions program.

If you commit to providing all or part of the $3,500 monthly amount that each bookshop needs to remain in operation, we will…

  • Provide an information packet with pictures and details, so that you can learn about the local staff, the city and ministry in that area.
  • Provide regular updates and prayer requests, so that you can pray for your bookshop staff and outreach.

Your partnership will enable us to keep Bible prices low, fulfilling our vision to “make the Word of God available to everyone in a language they can understand and at a price they can afford.”
