A Shortage of Quality Literature
At the click of a button, Christians in the English-speaking world have access to resources which were beyond the wildest dreams of previous generations. Sadly, however, what is true for us is not true for many others. Recent research has shown that the vast majority of evangelical pastors & church leaders across the world feel they do not have the resources they need in order to fulfil the role God has called them to. Sometimes the problem is a financial one - pastors cannot afford the books which have been written. However, more often than not the issue is that the books are simply not available in their own language.
The experience of SGA staff members backs up such research. What is true in other parts of the world is also true in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. We praise God for the great progress that has been made in countries like Romania, where SGA has been a long-term partner of a Christian publishing house.
