This is a list of some of the most significant free resources we've come across. You can also follow our Facebook page which regularly posts new resources.

Initiatives

Groups that have formed with the goal of freely sharing resources.

Several organizations have openly licensed a large volume of Bible translations they own. Most of them are not in English (see the bibles page for open English translations).

Books & courses

Most free books are on the actual topic of generosity, and so there is still a big need for free theological and pastoral books.
