NCCJ Christian Literature Publishing Society

History

The establishment of the Christian Literature Publishing Society was in 1949 when we were trying to set up a mission in the chaotic situation after World War II. In June the same year, the National Document Publishing Council was held for the purpose of expanding and strengthening document evangelism in Japan's Christian and Christian publishing circles. That was the beginning of the NCCJ Christian Literature Publishing Society.
Initially, the society itself issued booklets, tracts, and books. However, as Christian publishers became independent, publishing of books, magazines got entrusted to those specialized publishers of Christian books.

Document evangelism

Today, the word “Document evangelism” covers very broad and deep categories, from the weekly and monthly reports of the Church to the books and encyclopedias published by specialized publishers. While the weekly and monthly reports are documents in the church, the books, magazines, and encyclopedias published by publishers are social and cultural activities beyond the church while rooted in the church. Needless to say, documentary evangelism is based on the church, supported by the church, and serving the church.

Christian Document Center Foundation

The Document Division, as a division of NCC, also acts as an independent foundation, the Christian Document Center, which is the main work today. The cooperative work of Christian publishers and Christian specialty bookstores to strengthen and expand distribution and to supply Christian books to general bookstores urged the establishment of the Christian Document Center. However, not only that, but we also collect and research evangelistic documents, publish materials, encourage document evangelism activities, provide reading guidance, and help editors and bookstores to improve their philosophical and technical skills.
