Christian Book Publishers In North America

It is frequently a surprise to the general public when they meet someone reading a religious-themed romance novel published by a Christian book publisher located in the United States or Canada. The books themselves provide a source of quality fiction that is inspirational and tasteful. They are available in hardcover, paperback, and eBooks. Some are part of a series or follow a general theme, while others are one-of-a-kind publications where no sequel is planned.
 
One of the prominent Christian book publishers is Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group which is located in Bloomington, Minnesota. They have been in the publishing business for more than half a century. Their roots began when a missions organization needed a source to produce its publishing ministry. Today Bethany House is recognized as a leader in providing inspirational Christian fiction. The novels include contemporary and historical romance and suspense as well as Mennonite and Amish fiction.
 
Many of the books published by Bethany House have been included on Christian bestseller lists. The company is motivated to see this motivational writing become available to as many readers as possible. Therefore, many of the books have been translated into over 60 languages. The books are printed in both standard and large print for easy readability. Readers preferring to read books from their Kindle or laptop can purchase novels of their choice as eBooks.
 
Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan recently had their book, Where Trust Lies, published by Bethany House. Family and romantic love, trust, and dedication abound in this warm novel that helps main character Beth Thatcher find the answers so many of us seek to the question of where we belong.
 
Tyndale House Publishers, founded in 1962, is located in Carol Stream, Illinois. Some of the Christian fiction they have published has appeared on the New York Times bestsellers list. Two of their authors received “Inspirational Readers Choice” awards from the Romance Writers of America (RWA) in 2010. Breach of Trust, the first of DiAnn Mills’ Call to Duty series, was published in 2009. It centers on a former CIA agent who relocates to a small town to reduce the chance of danger. In June, 2010, the book also received a Christy Award for Contemporary Romance.
 
Maureen Lang received an award for her book, Look to the East, also published in 2009. It involves two feuding families who must set aside their differences and work together for survival when their small French village is invaded by the German Army during World War I.
 
Harlequin Romance, headquartered in Toronto, Canada, publishes Christian romance novels under the banner of Love Inspired Historical, Suspense, and modern-themed novels. Steeple Hill, a well-known Christian book publisher that prints Christian romance, is another company that operates under Harlequin’s umbrella.
