Doulos is the Greek word for bondservant.
bond•ser•vant: n. a person bound to service without wages; devoted to another to the disregard of one’s own interests
Jesus described true followers as those who hear with the intent to obey, are known by God because they abide in Jesus (the Word), and follow Him no matter the cost (cf. John 10:27-28). These are the bondservants of Christ. The name Doulos Books was chosen to reflect these core values which define authentic relationship with God.
The Word of God teaches that it is the bondservants of Christ who are shown 'what will soon take place' (Rev. 1:1). Those who embrace the lifestyle of the bondservant will also be granted the dual identity as friends of God, privy to their Master's business. It is our hope to offer quality resources that provoke readers to pursue their relationship with God in a deeper and more meaningful way, to grow in their commitment to follow Christ no matter the cost, and to fuel longing for Jesus' return.
