“We deliver God’s Word to the sharp edge of ministry, where people live and work, where they suffer and are helped, where they imagine their future and make life choices. Wherever people lift up God’s name to those in need, or worship together, or seek truth, hope, and salvation, we deliver.”

~ Rupen Das, Executive Director of the Canadian Bible Society
