OpenBook Ireland is a small Irish christian publishing house with the objective of publishing God’s Word & the life changing Message of Jesus Christ in print & digital media in Ireland so that it is readily available & understandable to every person on this island.
.
Background: Biblical literacy in Ireland today 
• The Bible is (incredibly) still a relatively unknown, closed book, although vaguely respected. Very few have read the Bible -God's message to humanity.
• Most people have very little idea of what the real gospel message of Jesus actually is. 
• Many people are totally unaware of the existence of independent Irish christian churches as an alternative to traditional religion. Most have no accurate idea of what a bible based church is -nor where to find one. 
We would like to help address issues like these.

Our National Treasure
Ireland has a rich heritage of the gospel coming with Saint Patrick and in fact a copy of the gospels (The Book of Kells in Trinity College, Dublin) is regarded as our National Treasure.
Ironically, Bible knowledge in our country is almost nil. 
.
What do we do?
We produce the annual calendar called 'Iosa -Inspirational Irish Christian Calendar' featuring scenes from Ireland with Bible verses & inspirational educational and gospel messages. Designed specifically for distribution within Ireland, this calendar is used by over 80 different christian churches all over the island of Ireland – North & South.
Average Calendar Printrun= 70,000.

With Aontas Ireland we design 4you Ireland's Ultimate Questions magazine & accompanying website called www.4you.ie
Average Magazine Printrun= 120,000.
The free Online version of 4you Magazine averages 4,000 views

So, we have 2 Irish christian items -but there's a lot more needed.
