"... in Egypt we cannot sell Scriptures except in our Christian bookshops," says Ramez Atallah, general secretary of the Bible Society there. "Our only shop in Cairo (a city of 14 million people) is on a very crowded street where it's impossible to find parking. So ... it takes a lot of initiative to pick up a copy of the Scriptures.

"Yet you can have a McDonald's or Kentucky Fried Chicken home delivered—in Cairo everything is home delivered. ... So the Bible Society began home delivery of Scriptures. It fits the culture and provides anonymity for people who don't want to come to our bookshop."
