We Need Gently Used Bibles and Christian books!

They are in great demand by many friends in India who read English. We also need volunteers to help collect and sort Bibles and books.

Participate by donating, collecting, or sorting Bibles and books, serving as a regional coordinator, or by helping to cover shipping costs. Please fill out the form below, tell us how you want to help!

Please see the list below for types of Christian books we need and do NOT need.

This is an excellent way for individuals, families, churches, schools, and businesses to participate in the Great Commission. Churches can choose a convenient month to collect Bibles and books as a church family.

Bless others with gently used, lightly marked or new books and Bibles. Your Bibles can stop collecting dust and become sources of divine inspiration and hope to people in India. The Bibles and books will be made available for donations in public book exhibitions. The proceeds will provide in-country revenue which help fund ministry programs including literacy and empowerment for uneducated, marginalized people. This is an important need!

Donations from publishers, retailers, libraries, thrift shops, churches, theological and Christian schools are greatly appreciated!

Ways to Help

To help cover the costs of shipping a container of approximately 25,000 books, we need your help! Suggested donations are $10 per box of new or gently used Bibles and books donated. However, donations of any size will be a blessing for the ministry.

We are located in Southern California. If you are out of the area or are unable to donate books, you can still help by making a gift to help cover shipping costs. Any amount is appreciated!

You can also help by purchasing English language Bibles and Study Bibles in bulk and shipping them directly to us. Cases of Bibles can be purchased for as low as $1.50 per Bible (complete Bibles preferred). Here are a few wholesalers:
