Frequently Asked Questions

Can the booklets be translated into other languages?

Great idea: They may be reproduced, photocopied, translated into other languages, or adapted in part or the whole, for God's glory and for the benefit of people who need to hear the Gospel of Jesus. If you would like to translate and use them for another language group we would be happy to share the files. Contact us at obm@generalmail.com.

How can I print booklets?

  • Download the PDF PRINT files.
  • Print onto A4 paper on your printer.
  • Pages go in pairs: 1&2 go together, then 3&4; then, 5&6, etc. Print pages 1 and 2 front to back; then 3 & 4, etc. They will fit together perfectly if things are lined up correctly.

Why use booklets?

• They don't depend on technology but are tangible things to take home. • Some people will not touch a Bible but are happy to read a booklet. • A short message is desireable, in contrast to the Bible being too big. • Written material often carries more weight than something just heard.

What sizes are the booklets?

  • Mostly small, designed to fit into a pocket or handbag.
  • Different sizes. However they can all be printed on A4 paper.
