Copyright & The Kingdom

How copyright works, and its implications for world missions

Have you ever considered how significantly the rise of "digital" has changed everything? It is now possible for more people than ever before to create and distribute massive amounts of content, at virtually no cost. This creates a tremendous opportunity for the advance of God's Kingdom all over the world. Content, however, is directly affected by copyright law and copyright is an important matter. It raises some questions, like: How does copyright work? How does copyright affect world missions? What are the implications of restrictions on discipleship resources for the global church? How do restrictions on translations of the Word of God affect believers in the nearly 7,000 languages of the world?

Copyright and the Kingdom is designed to provide a brief, visual overview of the world of copyright law and its implications for world missions. This work is based on the book The Christian Commons (, due out in a few months.
