As part of The Gospel Coalition’s ongoing efforts to provide biblical training and theological resources to church leaders and Christians around the world, we are pleased to announce the launch of a new Arabic resources initiative.
Through this new online native Arabic resource library, we will share gospel-centered, biblical teaching from trusted authors and theologians. These resources, translated into Arabic, will serve church leaders and Christians in the Middle East, North Africa, and the diaspora around the world.
There are about 420 million Arabic speakers in the world, but there are few gospel-centered, Reformed resources for church leaders and Christians in Arabic. TGC wants to change that.

“There is a great need in the Arabic-speaking world for the sorts of theologically sound, gospel-centered resources TGC creates,” said a U.S.-based Egyptian national who has collaborated in content selection and translation efforts for this project. “My prayer is that these freely accessible materials will help root the growing Arabic-speaking church in the gospel for generations to come.”
As of launching the site this October, we have 24 books, 79 videos, and 83 articles. These resources are free to download and share with others. More resources will be added to the collection over time, whether translated or authored by indigenous church leaders.
Along with the website, we have also launched an Arabic page on Facebook, where quotes, links to Arabic resources, and other content will be shared. Just two weeks after its launch, the TGC Arabic Facebook page has already amassed more than 16,000 followers—a testament to the hunger for content like this in the Arabic-speaking world. The leading countries might come as a surprise, with the most followers living in Algeria, Libya, Morocco, Tunisia, and Egypt. Clearly God is building his church in North Africa. Please share the website with your Arabic-speaking friends, or with church leaders and cross-cultural workers serving in Arabic-speaking contexts.
TGC’s Arabic site is just the latest of several international TGC sites launched in recent months. We have also recently launched a TGC Chinese resource site, as well as TGC Africa and TGC Brazil. These new sites join our existing family of international coalitions, which includes TGC Canada, TGC Australia, TGC Español, TGC Français, and TGC Italia.
Please share the website with your Arabic-speaking friends, or with church leaders and cross-cultural workers serving in Arabic-speaking contexts.
Please join us in praying that God would use all of these international resources sites to strengthen his church, spread his gospel, and bring glory to his name throughout the world.
