A Book Club Like No Other

Did you join a book club that sent you books you didn’t really want, or didn’t have time to read? Well, join our Book Club, instead. You will never receive a book, you will help LATM give a book to someone across the world who needs it!

How it works: We tell you about the book project each month, and the people and place it will bless. It might be a book on Christian evidences in Russian, a Bible study text in Spanish, a commentary in Arabic, or another needed book.

We send an envelope for your $20 to help fund the project. That is not much, but combined with gifts from other Book Club members, it can print an entire book project! Since beginning in 1994, Book Club members have given over $1,250,000, and helped print 500+ book projects.

Long Story Short is about God’s story as recorded in the Bible. The author, John Kitchen, works in the Kurdistan Region. He says that story is not a common concept in Islamic settings. Although Islam has roots in the Old Testament, that information is not presented in stories in the Koran, but as bits and pieces.

The Treasure Principle

by Randy Alcorn (into the Kurdish language)

This classic text, The Treasure Principle, discusses Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 6. It teaches readers Jesus’ radical generosity and of using resources with God’s kingdom in mind so that we may “Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven,” (Matthew 6:20).  

How is it being used? At the end of July, Hope Bible Institute in Kurdish Iraq graduated their first class of students.  They have been trained to be church planters and leaders.  Many of these students, who grew up Muslim, only came to Christ in the last several years.  And so there have been so many things to learn. This book will be used for the next level classes at the Bible Institute. It will also be available to all Kurdish believers to read and grow from what they have learned.

Missionary Julius Metugge writes:

In our context where 99% of believers are from a Muslim background, teaching about giving is essential to the growth of their faith.  Most local leaders find it hard to accurately teach on giving and most believers do not understand why they should give. We are in a context where humanitarian aid left the people with a huge dependence on foreign and local assistance.  With that mindset, even the new Christians think they must be in a process of continuously receiving and not giving.

Thank you for your faithfulness every month to publish books like this!
