CrossBooks is a Christian publishing company presenting a variety of Christian voices into the book market, from established authors to Christian leaders to first-time authors. As an imprint of B&H Publishing Group, the trade publishing division of LifeWay Christian Resources, we are devoted to providing the best possible venue for authors of any experience level to publish their books. We care deeply not only about craftsmanship and theological soundness but also about speed-to-market and our authors retaining creative control and rights to their own books.
We offer an innovative blend of traditional and self-publishing. Our unique model brings editorial, production, distribution and marketing expertise to each project while streamlining the book publishing process for the author.
Our books cover a wide range of topics, including: fiction, non-fiction, Christian living, family, theology, biblical studies, commentaries, church life, inspiration, children’s books and devotionals.
Launched in April 2009 by LifeWay Christian Resources, CrossBooks introduced an innovative style of publishing. While our authors contribute monetarily to cover the cost of publishing, we maintain theological and literary standards that every manuscript must meet for us to publish. Blending the best attributes of self-publishing and traditional publishing, we provide an avenue into the world of publishing for more Christians to share their stories.
As an imprint of B&H Publishing Group, CrossBooks’ history begins with LifeWay.
LifeWay Christian Resources was established 1891 by J.M. Frost, a pastor, in a corner of a newspaper office in Nashville, TN. With the approval of the Southern Baptist Convention, he launched what is today one of the world’s largest providers of Christian resources.
Today, the ministries of LifeWay Christian Resources touch lives throughout the United States and around the world. Those ministries include over 180 LifeWay Christian Stores, the production of Bibles, church literature, books, music, audio and video recordings, church supplies, and Internet services through LifeWay.com.
LifeWay Christian Resources is a religious nonprofit organization that receives no funding from the denomination and reinvests income above operating expenses in mission work and other ministries around the world.
