Serving the Majority World
OPAL’s focus is serving those who are engaged in the Majority World in evangelism, discipling, training of Christian workers and leaders, and church planting, with the Bibles and books they need to undertake their work. OPAL distributes literature at affordable and subsidised prices to those living and serving in materially poorer countries where the need is greatest. Please consult our catalogue pages for full details of the hundreds of Bibles and books we have available at affordable prices.
Books outside of the Majority World
Although our primary ministry is to those living or serving in the Majority World, a number of our books are available to purchase for those from other parts of the world. We also have a section dedicated to special offers.
Our priority is the word of God and we always carry a range of Bibles in various translations and editions.
We also supply a wide range of books on such vital issues as Christian living, discipleship, evangelism, and theology and doctrine together with books that encourage the study of the word of God.
We are committed to extend God’s Kingdom to His glory by sending resources from parts of the world where these are plentiful to places where there are few.
Leader’s Packs and more
As well as individual Bibles and books we also make available a variety of Leader’s Packs containing a study Bible and other strategic books, each carefully selected to provide a valuable resource for those involved in leadership in the local church and wider Christian ministry.
OPAL’s literature is selected to help people come to faith and encourage believers to progress to maturity and fruitfulness. Currently, we mainly work with countries where English is the national language or widely understood. However, OPAL has a number of Bibles and books in other languages.
If you would like to receive further information about special offers and new stock lines please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
“OPAL will equip you with affordable Bibles and quality evangelical literature for your ministry and mission in the Majority World. We make it easy for you to find just the right material through our online ordering and purchasing facility, and through our trusted distribution partners, to make sure they reliably reach their destination.”
Terms and Conditions
OPAL works in partnership with Christian publishers and Bible Societies to make books available at low cost to those living in the Majority World, or engaging in Christian ministry there. It is a condition of our agreements with them that a number of these Bibles and books are not sold to customers outside the Majority World (primarily Africa, Asia, Latin America). However, we do have a wide range of stock available to all other customers.
Although we aim to carry good quantities of our key stock lines, many titles come to us as ‘one off’ opportunities in limited quantities so stock availability cannot be guaranteed.
Wherever possible we ship at lowest cost. Because costs are changing all the time, when you make an order we will contact you about the best shipping method and to discuss shipping prices. If required, quicker delivery may be arranged, but will incur additional charges. All local duties, taxes, levies and collection charges are the responsibility of the customer.
Whilst most of our products are brand new, some may carry minor blemishes, scuffs etc. However, all will be useable and readable!
There is no minimum order. For UK customers the maximum order value is £150. For customers in all other parts of the world (apart from those registered and approved by OPAL as Majority-World customers) the maximum order value is £100.
To keep our prices as low as possible, OPAL maintains a non-return policy.
