Project for sharing your Bibles and other Christian books

Christian Booksellers Association and Zondervan Publishers did a research where they found that Christians in the United States own, on an average, nine Bibles. Christian Resources International Executive Director Fred Palmerton's organization receives around 250 letters a month from ministers and workers in other countries that don't have one Bible. Most of these people are from Africa, Asia, and South America. And, this troubled him.

Palmerton and CRI put together a program called Operation Bare Your Bookshelf, a project which makes it easy for Christians to send Bibles and other Christian materials overseas. Anyone can visit their website, fill out the forms, and they will send you all the materials needed to send those books overseas. Volunteers and recepients are matched by denomination to insure the right books get to the right people. You can find out more details, when you visit their site.
