About William Carey Library

Founded in 1969 by Ralph Winter, William Carey Library is the almost 50-year-old publishing company of Frontier Ventures (formerly the US Center for World Mission). 

Over the last five decades, WCL has published over 500 titles and sold well over one million mission-related books, more than a quarter of which were sold through the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement program alone. 

Today, WCL carries on the vision of its founder to “publish, at reasonable cost, the best in current thinking on world mission.” This strategic organization publishes resources that shape and advance the missiological conversation in the world. 

WCL has sought—and will continue to seek—to be at the forefront of disseminating the essential knowledge the global Church requires to finish the task of world evangelization.
