CHRISTIAN LITERATURE IN PERSIAN
Most Christian books available in persian these days are so called Evangelistic Books,
translated from the western languages, but other types of books are needed. In order that a Persian
may remain faithful to Christ and deepen his or her faith in God in today's world,
literature on the following subjects is essential:-
SOHRAB BOOKS is a small publishing enterprise for the production and
distribution of the type of literature mentioned above, which came into being when
Bishop Dehqani-Tafti retired. His friends contributed a sum of money for this purpose.
The Church Missionary Society kindly agreed to keep the sum in their books and handle the
finances. Expenses are paid by them from the Fund, and any sales are credited to the Fund.
In this way the enterprise is able to continue.
- Explaining Christianity, taking into consideration the collective unconscious mind of the Iranians,
i.e. their national and religious identity, so that Christianity may not appear a foreign
religion in borrowed clothing.
- Explaining the presence of Christianity in the long Iranian history, and in the rich
Persian poetry (both classic and contemporary).
- Devotional guides for meditation and spiritual life.
