Written by Emily Harstone | April 14, 2016

The following seven publishers all focus primarily on publishing Christian books for Christian audiences. Some are non-fiction publishers, some are fiction publishers. All are open to unsolicited submissions.

Actually, it is important to note that most Christian publishers are open to unsolicited submissions, so if you read a Christian book that you like, look up the publisher online to see if they are currently open to unsolicited submissions.

Not all of the following publishers are currently open to submissions, but most of them are.

Anaiah Press

A Christian digital first publisher. They publish faith based fiction and non fiction. They are relatively small and new publishing house. However they have a large number of editors for such a small organization and many of the editors have a fair amount of experience.  The editors (aside from the managing editor) all have wishlists below their profile. These wishlists make it clear what kind of manuscripts they are particularly interested in. Read our full review here.
