Think about what happened when Gutenberg invented the printing press:
technology rocketed the reach of the Bible.
The Bible crossed borders, shifted power,
transformed cultures, moving into the hands and
hearts of more people than ever before.
What if our next
is right in front of us?
For the Majority World
Decentralized, cost-effective, digital print-on-demand platform enabling affordable domestic production for immediate, local distribution.
You print only what is needed, when it is needed, and the price per book is the same whether for 1, 10, 100, or 1,000 copies.
No more complicated supply chain, shipping containers, warehouse space or inventory to maintain.
“Our world is far different from 16th-century Europe, but the gospel remains the same. We believe that biblical, expositional preaching and the publishing of practical theology in local languages are two primary means by which societies are transformed. Just as the faithful work of Gutenberg and the Reformers changed Germany and the history of the world, so God will continue to use Word-centered pulpits and printing presses to proclaim the hope of the cross until Jesus returns.”

What role have books played in your life and ministry? Which authors or titles have you found most helpful in your Christian life?
What would you consider essential reading in your role as a pastor and teacher, in making disciples, building a healthy church, in marriage, and raising a family?
Now, what if you never had the opportunity to consider their words, to draw encouragement and strength from those pages?
For the Church in the Majority World, there is a scarcity of theologically sound books which we have only known and owned in abundance. Christians in the poorest regions do not have the convenience of two-day doorstep delivery or ability to Buy Now with 1-Click for Kindle. Pastors neither have the proximity or purchasing power to curate a library to cultivate the soil of their hearts and counteract false teachings. In a wilderness of the written word, wolves in shepherd’s clothing are devouring vulnerable believers in developing nations, preaching prosperity rather than Christ as the chief end of the gospel.
When the Church in hard places gathers together, it could cost them their lives, whereas we can leave conferences with a haul of pages at zero cost to us. From heart-language translations of the Scriptures, to the most requested and needed contextual and comprehensible resources for the edification and establishing of the global Body of Christ, Jesus has tasked us with provision for a disenfranchised Majority World:
"You give them something to eat."

“I’ve been encouraged to see how Publish4All has innovated and led the way on the African continent by making resources available to local retailers at affordable prices. With POD technology and IP licensing improving at a rapid rate, P4A is poised to play a pivotal role in the growth of the industry.”
Missionary to Niger, West Africa
“The Publish4Africa system is having a massive impact near and far, and opening doors previously closed. We can print a book today that can be available in seven different countries within 48 hours. In 2021, we printed over 25,000 books and our sales topped $56,000. In one of the poorest and least literate places in the world, a business focused on books is thriving.”
Missionary to Kampala, Uganda
“Some of the people receiving these materials are reading God’s Word in their heart language for the first time! I can honestly say that when the system came to our small shop, I had no idea the tremendous impact it would make for the ministry, but it literally changed everything.”
