Dear Friends,

Thank you for your interest in HarperCollins Christian Publishing.  Whether you are an author, agent, retailer, distributor, Bible studier or book lover, we are grateful for the opportunity to tell you about our company.

HarperCollins Christian Publishing, Inc. is the world’s largest Christian content provider, with more than three hundred years of publishing expertise.  We are a values-driven organization, working toward a single mission: “We inspire the world by meeting the needs of people with content that promotes biblical principles and honors Jesus Christ.”

Our company comprises two of the most recognized and sought after names in Christian publishing: Thomas Nelson and Zondervan. These publishing houses are the foundation from which we have continued to build and brand some of the most internationally known Christian resources, translating into nearly two-hundred languages and distributing into more than one-hundred countries.

Through Thomas Nelson and Zondervan, readers have discovered the works of the world’s most influential and inspirational Christian authors.  From Bibles and trade books, to children’s books and gift books, to textbooks and curriculum, our authors have allowed us to transform their powerful messages and deliver them into the many hands that need Godly inspiration. We have the pleasure of sharing the words of Billy Graham, Max Lucado, Rick Warren, Dr. Charles Stanley, Philip Yancey, Sarah Young, Dave Ramsey, Sheila Walsh, Andy Stanley, Christine Caine, Lysa TerKeurst, Andy Andrews, Coleen Coble, Jennie Allen, Donald Miller, and many other inspirational favorites with the world.

HarperCollins Christian Publishing is also home to the popular online Christian communities Bible Gateway, FaithGateway, Study Gateway, and Olive Tree.  These innovative tech-platforms engage with readers every day, adding depth to their scriptural study and book experience.  We want to connect our readers with tools that help their faith journey and these resources are unique in their ability to serve and inspire.

We continue to focus on our global impact with international initiatives like HarperCollins Mexico, Thomas Nelson Brasil, and others including working with many international publishing partners around the world.

We believe HarperCollins Christian Publishing’s content is exceptional.  I encourage you to explore our website and discover our award-winning products and bestselling authors.
