Who Is Publishing Good Books Today?

Resources Collection cover image

Who is publishing good books today? I found myself wondering which publishers are releasing the kind of books that end up in my mailbox and the kind of books that are then read and reviewed. I don’t mean to say that I am the final arbiter of which books are good and which are not; rather, like everyone else, I read and form opinions and, at the end, either recommend or don’t recommend.

I went back through the book review archives, looked at the books I have reviewed positively over the past several months, and jotted down the publishers. I was surprised and encouraged to see just how many different publishers are represented here. It turns out that a lot of publishers are releasing lots of excellent books.

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God.

    Let’s Hear It For the Second Parents

    While today we tend to associate step-parents with divorce, in previous centuries they were almost exclusively associated with death and with either widow- or widowerhood. In an era in which lifespans were shorter and, therefore, a greater number of parents died while their children were still young, there was a distinct and honored role for…
