DONATING TO BOOK AID (AUSTRALIA)
Book Aid (Australia) seeks to help meet this need by collecting and distributing
books and bibles to areas of need overseas
|The Books We Send
We try to send the very best books overseas as well as tailoring
collections to meet individual needs and requests.
Essentially all donated books are sorted between books for theological libraries
and books for Christian Bookshops.
Consignments are selected and sympathetically matched according to doctrinal and denominational factors.
Ideally only the very best books
are sent overseas
The Books We Need
We need a variety of Christian Books and Bibles.
We send to a variety of sources including libraries,
missions, schools, Christian bookshops and books for individual Christian workers.
We particularly need:
Bibles in Good Condition especially King James Version
Study Guides - Unused
Books for Children
Fitzroy Falls Sorting Area
Some Books We Do Not Send
All donated books in the first instance are earmarked for overseas.
We try to avoid dated material including daily devotionals such as Daily Bread.
Some Christian magazines and periodicals likewise.
Cult material, aberrant "Christian" books will not be sent. This includers more clearly cultic material such
as produced by Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists and Roman Catholic sources as well as
much current extreme charismatic, word of faith, prosperity gospel material
(Benny Hinn, Marilyn Hickey, Kenneth Copeland, Joel Osteen etc)
We do not send books in poor condition and books sent for distribution in retail outlets
are expected to be in at least very good condition.
Publisher remainders in bulk are not shipped and as a rule
we avoid CD's or DVD's which fall more into the entertainment frame.
The final decision on the content with any overseas shipment
rests with Book Aid (Australia)
|Books sold through
Christian Books Australia
Duplicate, older or more specialist books
not required overseas are sold or exchanged
through Christian Books Australia
This assists with costs and our ability
to provide more suitable material
Rockdale Christian Books & Book Aid (Australia)
| Book Aid (Australia) at Rockdale
All stock at our bookshop at Rockdale is
available for Christians overseas.
Currently (August 2010) all fittings and
approximately 60% of stock at Rockdale
is owned by Christian Books Australia.
As donations increase we hope (dv) to see
all stock at Rockdale eventually
owned by Book Aid (Australia).
Selected Book Aid doner recipients can
select book direct from the shop at Rockdale.
