Inside United: Realtime

Exciting News & Updates from UCGIA

UCG Prints 8 Millionth Booklet

May 4, 2012

In a few days the United Church of God will pass another major milestone when we print our 8 millionth English-language booklet!

With the reprinting of the updated and redesigned booklet You Can Have Living Faith, we will pass the 8 million mark.

To put this number in perspective, if all 8 million booklets (at our current size) were laid end to end, they would stretch more than 1,000 miles—the approximate distance from Los Angeles to Denver or Seattle or from Cincinnati to Dallas, Orlando, or Wichita.

If put into a single stack, it would reach more than 51 miles high and weigh almost 600 tons!

Our most-printed booklet at the moment is The Book of Revelation Unveiled (411,000 copies). The remainder of the top 10 booklets published are Are We Living in the Time of the End? (370,000 copies), You Can Understand Bible Prophecy (360,000 copies), What Happens After Death? and What Is Your Destiny? (355,000 each), The Middle East in Bible Prophecy (350,000 copies), Jesus Christ: The Real Story and The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy (320,000 each), The Ten Commandments (310,000 copies) and Holidays or Holy Days: Does It Matter Which Days We Observe? (300,000).

In most years we have printed or reprinted 500,000 to 700,000 booklets in response to reader requests. This averages about 50,000 booklet requests per month (not counting Internet downloads).

While the Internet, TV, The Good News and other forms of media are good at introducing people to God’s truth, booklets play a major role in helping people gain a deeper understanding of what the Bible teaches about various subjects. Thus our booklets play a crucial role in bringing people to greater understanding of the Bible and God’s plan and purpose for them.

We deeply appreciate the generosity and faithfulness of our members, coworkers and donors who make it possible to share God’s wonderful truths in this way!
