Hodder & Stoughton was founded in 1868 as a Christian publisher and from the beginning sought to publish the highest quality commercial material for that market. The imprint Hodder Faith started in 2007.
Over the years we’ve worked with such great writers as G.K. Chesterton, John Stott, Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom and Jackie Pullinger, and more recent authors include Philip Yancey, Joyce Meyer, R.T. Kendall, Brian D. McLaren, Rob Parsons, Timothy Keller and J. John.
Now part of Hachette UK, one of the largest publishing groups in the UK, we aim to reach as wide an audience as possible with thought-provoking, inspiring and challenging Christian books – and to publish the Bible imaginatively and cost-effectively so as to both meet the needs of individual readers and resource the church.
Our books cover a wide range of topics including testimony, apologetics, Christian lifestyle, fiction, leadership and social justice. Every so often a book speaks to the needs of a generation and it’s great to be part of the story as books like Chasing the Dragon, Total Forgiveness, Run Baby Run, The Prodigal God and The Shack impact the hearts and minds of thousands of readers.
Our Hodder Classics series ensures that the wisdom and insights of people like Julian of Norwich, Brother Lawrence and John Bunyan remain available, alongside more contemporary classics from the likes of Nicky Cruz, Jackie Pullinger and Joyce Huggett. We also publish fresh and new voices such as Nick Page, Dave Tomlinson and Anne Lamott.
With massive changes in how people are reading and accessing resources, we are seizing opportunities to use digital technology, with all new titles available in eBook format – as well as the NIV Bible. We are excited about the possibilities these new platforms will bring for readers and authors in the future.
