About Us

For more than 80 years the purpose of CUM Books has been to put Christian content and Bibles into the hands of the people of South Africa. As a publisher and retailer, the hope of the gospel remains our driving passion.

Christelike Uitgewersmaatskappy (CUM) was established on the eve of the Second World War when founders Freddie and Ria Crous answered a call from God in 1939 to spread the gospel through the printed word.

Through the hundreds of employees who have worked tirelessly within the organization over decades, we have touched diverse audiences with publications that reflect relevance, excellence, and integrity.

We invite you to browse our online store or visit any of our 32 store locations to discover the many ways in which we can support you on your path to spiritual growth.
