The South Asian Concern library is a small but quite unique collection of almost 1,500 books relating to South Asian faith, culture, social and political history, and Christian mission.
Amongst the range are books on evangelism to South Asians and cross-cultural mission, South Asian art and poetry, and language learning books. There are also a number of biographies of key western Christians who made a positive difference within South Asia (Amy Carmichael, Samuel Zwemer, Karl G Pfander). Alongside other works on prayer, the Zacharias Tanee Fomum series inspires a fresh approach to Christian discipleship which would enrich western thought. One recent addition is a paperback specifically on counselling South Asians.
A number of the donated books come from home libraries of South Asian workers and long standing friends, while others are from students who have completed their mission studies. Ram Gidoomal’s and Robin Thomson’s books are there along with other SAC publications.
If you are a Christian student, mission trainee, church apprentice, EFL ministry leader, pastor, social worker or cross-cultural church worker you are invited to come and browse, read and study in the reference library. If there is a particular book or publication that you are looking for then please get in touch.
The library is part of the SAC offices in King’s Cross, London which are normally staffed during office hours. However, this is not guaranteed and so please contact us before calling to check that the facilities are available.
