Our Mission

Word Alive Bookshop is a Christian bookshop which is committed to providing excellent service to all people and being on the cutting edge in offering products that will bring about Christian growth and moral transformation in the society in line with the Word of God.


The Word Alive Bookshop started in 1985 as a library where people could rent books, audio cassettes and video tapes. The building was along Haile Selassie Road in between Chimwemwe Bar and Ramjees Shop, by then the church was called Blantyre Christian Center. The Christian Bookstore was established in 1986, the products were bought from South Africa after a collection of offerings which was $180.00, and right from the beginning, it proved to be a great success.

We are now off Mandala Road behind Blantyre Market. We stock Christian books of different known international and local authors, Bibles, DVD’s, Compact discs and various gift items.

We aim at stay up to date by supplying the latest items on the market. We also aim at providing only original products that will last.
