History[edit] The company was founded in 1939 by Herman Baker in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The company has published Christian
books that discuss many issues, from family life to theology, within a broadly evangelical framework.[2] Baker publishes books and ministry resources for pastors and church leaders, concentrating on topics such as preaching, worship, pastoral ministries, counseling and leadership. Baker also publishes for lay Christians on topics such as discipleship, spirituality, encouragement, relationships, marriage, parenting and the intersection of Christianity and culture.[3] In June 2014 Baker announced that it had acquired Regal Books from Gospel Light.[4] Subdivisions[edit] Bethany House[edit] Main article: Bethany House Baker is regarded as a "pioneer" in publishing Christian
fiction.[5] Revell[edit] The Fleming H. Revell Company was established in 1870 by Christian Evangelist D.L. Moody and his brother-in-law, Fleming H. Revell. The two men identified a market for practical books that would help bring the Christian
faith to everyday life. In 1992, Revell was absorbed by Baker.[6] Chosen[edit] The Chosen publishing enterprise began in 1971. In 1985, the company was absorbed into the Revell publishing Group. When Revell was bought by Baker, the Chosen imprint remained as a distinct unit within the newly expanded company.[7] Brazos Press[edit] Brazos Press is a publisher of theology and theologically-based cultural criticism, with an orientation toward postliberal viewpoints within mainline Protestantism.[8] References[edit]
