June 27th, 2011 · 23 Comments · Church, Church of Christ

EDIT – Wilburta commented with a link to her site that makes this list look tiny. Here is her list of 42 sites.

I had someone ask me what companies are actively producing curriculum that are affiliated with Churches of Christ. I can think of a few

I am not sure about the last two…anyone have an idea about College Press and Resource Publications?

I am pretty sure there are a bunch out there but I am not really any tune with what is going on in regard to this. Can you guys fill me in on who all is out there?

    Many Christian Churches and Churches of Christ are served by Standard Publishing ( Many non-institutional Churches of Christ are served by Truth Books (

    21st Century Christian is still publishing books.

    My apologies for repeating what you already said. I’m a little sleep deprived today. What I should have said is, “I think that’s about all there are other than self-publication.”

    The number of publishers is in free fall. I think that’s largely because so many read books from mainstream evangelicalism.

    Gospel Light Publishing (Delight, AR)
    Truth for Today (Searcy, AR)

    I am also aware of two recent books published electronically. Rick Oster published a book which can be found by going to the faculty page at Harding Grad, and Wade Hodges just put out a Kindle book on Amazon. I think you will see more of this in the future, especially small projects.

      That reminds me of college press and Resource Publications. Seems like College Press is affiliated with the Christian Church? I can’t remember.

      • Terry

        Yes. College Press is affiliated with the Christian Churches, but it publishes several books by authors in Churches of Christ. Its NIV commentary series is authored by a roughly equal number of scholars from both Christian Churches and Churches of Christ.

    Forthright Press is doing some publishing:

    They may just publish from within their own faculty, but the Austin Graduate School of Theology publishes under the imprint Christian Studies Press (just have an e-mail address

    Does Quality Press still exist? they used to have some decent books … for example David Chadwell’s Beware the Leaven of the Pharisees and Monroe Hawley’s Redigging the Wells …

  • John Ross

    Resource Publications is out of Searcy, but not affiliated with HU. It is the same company that publishes Truth For Today. It is (or was) Eddie Cloer’s company, but that was in the mid 90’s.

  • Wilburta Arrowood

    Publishing Designs, Inc in Huntsville, AL is owned by members of the church.

    There is an extensive, although I’m sure not all inclusive, list of Christian publishers on my website at: Be aware, however that some are more liberal than others. Explore and make your own judgments.

    With all the supposed knowledge our world continues to be rather dumb. There is only ONE
    Church Of Christ. God started his Church on AD33. Pay attention to your Bible and you won’t
    be confused.

  • Sharon Hicks

    After trying to teach the 21st Century’s Life Link material, I found it very liberal, very denominational, NOT in keeping with the “mainstream: church of Christ.

  • anthony tordiglione

    I am looking for the right publishing company? My father in-law, a well read and accomplished writer gave me a manuscript before he passed away. This book is geared more towards the Church of Christ, but I believe will be good for all denominations. Any suggestions?

    • Jesse Barksdale

      I’m looking for a publisher that can publish a book for and is about the Church of Christ. If you find a good publisher let me know.

    Does anyone know which of those publishers actually get your books into book stores. It’s easy to get a book published, but hard to get them in to bookstores. Appreciate any information.

    • Elouise A. Spivey

      How can I start applying to add my Christian Children book to your bookstore selling list? It was self-published on Kindle-Amazon.
      Thank you for your help.
