ALS findings confirmed that there is much work to be done in making culturally contextual literature and digital materials available across Africa. A number of factors contribute to this. There is the ongoing task of developing African writers, editors and publishers. There is also the task of overcoming the difficulties of distribution – of both print and digital materials. They are explored in depth in the chapter entitled “Reading and Leading: Favorite Authors of African Christians” in the ALS book “Patterns in African Christian Leadership”. It will take the efforts of many organizations and individuals working together to address this complex challenge.
Here is a list of publishers currently working in Africa. Some of them offer books by African authors. Their inclusion in the list is not to be considered as an endorsement. See also “Training in Writing and Publishing” and “Print on Demand” Topics.
