Our name says it all. Here at The Good Book Company we believe that God's growth process for individuals and churches starts with us clearly hearing God's voice in Scripture. Therefore our aim is to produce resources which put the word of God in the driving seat, helping Christians to open up the Bible for themselves.
We strive to provide resources that:
Whether you're a church minister, a Bible-study group leader, looking after a wild group of teenagers on a Sunday night or serving God in more behind-the-scenes roles, you need to be refreshed in your thinking and equipped for service if you are to stay energised and effective in the work of the gospel. We hope that you will find a host of helpful tools in our range of materials now available in the UK, North America, Australia and New Zealand.
We also want to add value to our resources by providing free video downloads and promotional material, such as trailers, as well as talks from some of the fantastic events we are involved with (see the TGBC App for talks).
We take seriously the call to bring the gospel of Christ to the whole world. That's why we recycle our profits into projects that seek to share the mass of Bible resources we have with our brothers and sisters in the rest of the world. We do this by translating existing resources, producing Pray, Prepare, Preach study guides to help preachers in the majority world teach the Bible, and by producing essential yet unprofitable ministry resources, such as Table Talk family devotionals. Buying directly from us helps us to achieve all this.
The Good Book Company started in 1991, and has grown to 25 members of staff in our South-West London offices and has an office in the USA, and partner offices in Sydney, Australia and Christ Church, New Zealand. We're a diverse collection of believers with Anglican, Baptist, Congregational and Free Church backgrounds who are united in our aim to support and encourage the spread of the gospel by providing resources that help Christians grow in their understanding and love of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon once remarked that, "the gospel is like a caged lion. It does not need to be defended, it just needs to be let out of its cage". That is the foundational thinking behind everything we aim to do. We create and promote resources that help people to engage with the word of God, certain in the knowledge that God will be at work transforming people’s lives as they dig deep into his "good book".
This is who we are, and we hope to serve the Lord by serving you. If you have specific questions about us or our work, please contact us.
