About Us

CUM Books has become a much-loved and popular name in South African homes for many years. This chain of Christian family bookshops began when six NG Kerk-boekhandel shops were bought. In 1993 CUM Books began to enter major shopping malls. The first shops were opened in Westgate and Greenacres. Since then, CUM Books has gone from strength to strength and there are now over 40 branches countrywide and an online store.

Our online CUM Bookstore offers you the ability to browse through our products in the comfort of your own home, at a coffee shop or wherever you are. Our website makes it possible for you to shop whenever you want. But if you need to feel and touch our high-quality products for yourself, visit us at any of our stores countrywide where our friendly staff will make you feel right at home.

You can also follow us on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube , Pinterest, Google+, Instagram & LinkedIn and make sure you are one of the first to know about our new releases, great specials, events and competitions.

CUM Books strives to offer exceptional service to customers, to provide culturally relevant and biblically accurate books and products – proclaiming firmly that not only are Christian books sold in the stores, but also a Christian lifestyle.

With products of outstanding quality, CUM Books provides a full and comprehensive service to the Christian market with our seven departments: English Books, Afrikaanse Boeke, Bibles, Music, Resources, Movies and Gifts. We have the largest variety of Christian products under one roof.

CUM Books focus is on spreading the Good News to the homes and hearts of people across South Africa. We are committed to service excellence and, in partnership with our employees, authors, customers and suppliers, strive to be a reliable supplier of high-quality products in an effective and profitable manner.
