The work of EPI began in Africa with the translation of the first title, Start of the Race, into Congo Swahili. The goal was to present profound Biblical truth in simple, everyday English. Today the Everyday Bible Commentary Series as well as many additional books and resources are available in over 80 countries around the world. They have been translated and printed in Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Congo Swahili and many other languages. These resources are extremely versatile and are used as correspondence courses, teaching materials, small group study guides and tools for prison ministry.
