Reach isolated Christians! Lumin is a software program for creating courses, eBooks, presentations, and other content—called "Paks". Lumin gives pastors, trainers, and educators an easy way to deliver relevant, biblical training in areas where access to the Internet is limited. Lumin can even export materials directly into Estante, making biblical training easy to view and share on mobile devices.

Please note that at this time, MAF is no longer developing Lumin. It is available for a free download, but will not include software updates, bug fixes, or customer support.
