scholarship that matters

Fortress Press publishes works of unparalleled relevance and influence, producing books that shape the thought of scholars, students, clergy, and general readers. Our editorial team is actively seeking proposals for books in Bible, theology, and intersections of those topics in art, literature, and culture. See below to learn more!


Fortress Press Education publishes innovative, transformational textbooks and classroom resources for the seminary and undergraduate setting in Bible, Christian history, theology, ethics, or world religions.

Whether it's preaching, teaching, counseling, planning, serving, administering, or simply seeking to recharge your spirit, Fortress Press Ministry delivers thoughtful, creative, and accessible books by authors attuned to clergy professionals’ ministry needs.

General Readers

Starting with the Theology for the People line and moving beyond to books that intersect religion with topics in art, literature, and culture, we strive to reach general readers that are culturally engaged and grounded in fresh, substantive, timely, and inspiring theological reflection.
