Open-Access Theological Books


For All of Us

The greatest challenge of the church today is to train pastors where the Gospel is growing the most. Access to high-quality resources is a barrier for many pastors needing formal education in Africa, Latin America, and Asia. At Klisia, all our books are free in the digital format, peer-reviewed by academics, making theology and biblical studies accessible everywhere.

Innovative and rooted in Christ

Doctrinal Clarity

Our authors and staff affirm seven core doctrines that define orthodoxy. 

Accessibility broadly understood

Our books are intentionally accessible, not only free and open-access but also following the Accessible Publisher Guidelines with accessibility quality assurance in every title.


Reading should be physically enjoyable, in the format that best fits your needs.


Klisia means a group eating together; we believe we learn best together. We learn as we share, comment, and discuss. Our books are published under CC BY 4.0 International, so readers can enjoy, share, and grow with full permission (BY means you have to give credit).

Great for Authors!

Reimagining book publication

Open Access has innumerable advantages. Authors pray and work tirelessly to come up with great books. But often, sales are poor, books are expensive, and fail to make the impact we would like to see. We want to change that! The church should be more involved in education, and our group at Klisia is making this a reality.

At Klisia, we blend the best of both models. Like a traditional publisher, your book will be examined by experts for its quality and doctrine, and authors get an assigned editor who will take care of all the publishing process. Authors can focus on writing. Like self-publishing, we don’t do a marketing and profitability analysis. If the church funds your book, we know she will be encouraged by it to pursue a deeper fellowship with our triune God. And in the end, the global church benefits, as the CC BY 4.0 license guarantees that digital versions of your book will be free for everyone.

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

- Acts 2:42–47, NIV
