How to Select a Christian Book Publishing Company

Jesus told Peter, “if you love me, feed my sheep” (John 21:17). As believers, it is a message that all of us should take to heart. One way to feed our Master’s sheep is through the written word. Whether that word comes in the form of devotionals or the sharing of how becoming a Christian has changed our lives, the written word has the power to share God’s message with all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people.

Finding the right book publishing company can help you as you share Christ’s message of love.

What Do You Need?

What are your goals? Is your book a collection of devotionals you want to give as gifts to family and friends? Is it a collection of sermons to share with your congregation? Is it a book of your personal journey of faith that you wish to sell at conferences where you have been called to speak? Understanding what you need from a book publisher will give you a clearer picture of what things to ask for and how to decide if that publisher can meet your needs.

How Many Copies?

How many copies do you need? Having an idea of how many books you want to print is important when you approach a publisher. Look for publishers who can cater to your individual needs whether you are printing twenty devotionals to give as Christmas gifts or one thousand books to take to conferences.

The book publisher you choose should be able to provide as many or as few copies as you need, all at a reasonable rate.

Do You Need Help Writing Your Book?

When God called Moses to speak to Pharaoh on behalf of the enslaved Hebrews, Moses was worried he wouldn’t have the skills to relay the Lord’s message. God appointed Aaron to help Moses share his message with the Egyptians.

If you, like Moses, have a message God has put in your heart to share but are worried about your skills as a wordsmith, some publishers offer ghostwriting services. These services allow you to work with a qualified professional who can help you put your message on paper in a clear and readable way.

Do You Need a Custom Book Cover?

In Romans, chapter 12, we are reminded that God gives different gifts to different people. If art isn’t your gift, you may need help designing your book cover. As you look for a Christian book publisher make sure they offer services such as custom book cover design and book manuscript formatting if those are not talents you have been blessed with.

E-book Distribution

If your goal is to feed Jesus’ sheep outside of your local area, then you should consider choosing a book publisher who can convert your manuscript into an e-book and set it up for distribution. The internet has made it easier than ever to spread the message of God’s Grace globally. By turning your book into an e-book and distributing it through online sellers you are able to share the words of God more widely than ever before.
