Simplified pastoral training
in bite-sized books


Authenticity Book House publishes simplified pastoral training materials. ABH produces bite-sized books, capturing theological truths in easily understood language, for Swahili-speaking believers with limited educational access.

What We Do


Becoming a believer in Jesus Christ changes everything. Suddenly the Holy Spirit creates an awareness of sin, the realization of a need for rescue, and the relief of getting swept into forgiveness through the death and resurrection of Jesus. To top it off, we enter an eternal relationship with our Creator God.
What a story. What an overwhelming shift in life for any new child of God. Now imagine this shift in a land where knowledge of God scarcely exists. Where witch doctors reside in every village, their practices a familiar part of the daily landscape. How would you understand such a radical change in your heart? What would it mean in your everyday life?
Yusuph Emmanuel, a Tanzanian native, tackles these questions in his bite-sized book, Kuirudia Misingi (Back to the Basics). His book provides a road map for pastors and new believers, showing the way to walk on this unfamiliar path.
In Kuirudia Misingi, Yusuph explains what it means to join a new family, or clan—God’s family. He discusses the permanence of a believer’s place in this clan through a biblical understanding of the guarantee of salvation. He introduces the Bible as the true manual for living, explaining realities of the spiritual world and the exercise of prayer, as seen through God’s words.
In a land where biblical spiritual maps represent a rare commodity, this book brings clarity. It explains critical information about the application of God’s word to daily life and the importance of learning, memorizing, and meditating on the Word. Published in 2017, Kuirudia Misingi quickly became a staple in our library for pastors and new believers. It currently circulates in many parts of Tanzania and in Kenya. Pray that God would allow this book to travel even further, reaching other new Swahili-speaking believers throughout East Africa!


New Year—New Country

Most of us associate a new year with new things—things we hope represent good. Maybe we create new year’s resolutions, which sometimes actually live until February. Maybe we try rearranging our routines to take on a new challenge.

We love newness and good change at Authenticity Book House too. Let me tell you about one such change the Lord brought our way. Unlike our earthly efforts to bring about good, one particular opportunity already reaps benefits with no expiration date, and may continue in ways yet unknown as the year rolls on.

Our adventure technically began in the month of December. A call of need came to us from Pastor Sammy of Kenya. “We need 2,000 books to give attendees at two evangelistic events scheduled before Christmas.”

Thanks to participants in our first annual Christmas campaign, ABH embarked on the challenge of supplying these books. Pastor Sammy, also a printer, used funds he received from ABH to print 1,600 copies of two books: Kuirudia Misingi (Back to the Basics), written by Tanzania church planter and partner Yusuph Emmanuel, and Mafunzo ya Msingi ya Biblia (Basic Bible Study Methods), written by ABH board member, Dr. Thomas Golding. Pastor Sammy loaded up the newly printed books for transport and distributed almost all of them at the gospel meetings.

January brought news of exciting results. What did the Lord do in Kenya? He brought 1,200 new believers into his kingdom. Two hundred thirty-seven of his children rededicated their lives to him. He sent books throughout Kenya as attendees returned to their homes.

One attendee summed up the experience like this: “Apart from committing my life to God, I have a book to take home to my family and myself. God bless Pastor Sammy.”

And God bless you, our partners in so many ways. Welcome to a growing new year of ministry and a fresh horizon for our simplified pastoral training in bite-sized books. Stamp your passports for Kenya. See others gain a passport to heaven!
