INTRODUCTION
 
        2 Timothy 2:15 commands, "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”
        To follow this command of God, first of all, all believers should faithfully read their Bibles. In addition to that, they should read books that explain the Word of God clearly.
  • It is your privilege to read books to help you grow in your faith.
  • It is your responsibility to teach your children what the Bible says. Children love to hear Bible stories and other stories written just for them.
  • It is your duty to love your friends, relatives and neighbors. Everyone can share literature. For example:
  1. Give books to your friends.
  2. Keep a shelf of Christian books in your house. Allow your friends and neighbors to borrow these to read in their own homes.
 
        Unless otherwise stated, all books in this catalog are written in Bangla.
