About Regent College Publishing
Many visitors to Regent College are often impressed by the Regent Bookstore, but many are not aware that the Regent Bookstore also has its own publishing imprint, Regent College Publishing. Since the early 1990s the bookstore has been meeting a demand for out-of print Christian literature by reprinting Christian academic literature.
Using new printing technology, Regent Bookstore can publish books in quantities as low as one at a time. Traditionally, book publishers have had to print several thousand copies to break even, which comes with considerable financial investment and risk. But with "print on demand" technology now available, RCP has been able to publish more than 200 books of theology and Christian spirituality with very low overhead.
Today, RCP has international distribution agreements and publishes books by notable authors such as J.I. Packer, Gordon Fee, and Eugene Peterson. Our backlist includes both reprints and an increasing number of original titles. Regent College Publishing also acts as a literary agency in developing manuscripts by faculty at Regent, pitching them at larger publishers and recouping the cost through bookstore sales and royalty arrangements. Examples of some recent co-publishing projects are Gordon Fee’s Listening to the Spirit in the Text, and Bruce Waltke’s Finding the Will of God. Other new releases include Christian Perspectives on Gender, Sexuality & Community, edited by Maxine Hancock, and Experiencing the Trinity by Darrell Johnson.
