Welcome to Africa Christian Textbooks (ACTS). ACTS exists to strengthen the Church by providing Bible-based literature that is relevant and affordable. We publish and sell good quality Christian literature that provides the information and intellectual tools needed on the one hand by theologians, Bible students, pastors, missionaries and church leaders and on the other hand the general Christian public.
As you browse this site you will see more of our work and some of the books that have recently arrived. Please contact either our Headquarters or your nearest ACTS Book shop to check on purchasing either these books or hundreds more we have in stock. We can also assist in ordering in books that we do not have in stock.
We are here to serve our customers, to see lives changed, learning enabled, and for Christians to grow stronger and deeper in their witness for our Lord.
In 1991 the Accrediting Council for Theological Education in Africa (ACTEA) held an Africa-wide conference in Jos. Following that conference a number of Nigerian-based missionaries and church leaders discussed the lack of suitable books for pastors and theological students. Africa Christian Textbooks (ACTS) developed from those meetings. Currently we have 13 shops in Nigeria, plus close ties with ACTS Kenya (http://www.actskenya.org/acts )
Until the end of December 2016 ACTS was led by Rev Dr Sid Garland. While continuing to be involved in ACTS he has stepped down from being Executive Director and our Board of Directors is currently in the process of developing new leadership arrangements. Rev Luka Vandi, for many years the ACTS General Manager, is now the Managing Director.
We import Christian literature primarily from the United States and the United Kingdom. We also have published over 100 titles of our own and are constantly adding to our publications list. We partner with Langham Partnership in the Hippo Books imprint bringing together the best of evangelical scholarship from right across Africa. We benefit from close ties with Mission Africa, SIM Nigeria, SUM-CRC, and Global Scholars as we minister together in Nigeria. We regularly hold training workshops for writers and librarians and have recently completed the first phase of our Writer’s Retreat Centre at our Headquarters near Jos.
