Crossway is a not-for-profit Christian ministry and exists to proclaim the gospel through publishing. Clyde Dennis, a young Christian printer, began his career by printing tracts and sending them to hundreds of Christian workers. This ministry, Good News Publishers grew and in 1979, expanded by starting a book publishing division—Crossway Books.
Crossway Books has become one of today’s leading publishers of evangelical Christian books and Bibles. They have published more than 1,500 titles by authors like Martyn Lloyd-Jones, John Piper, John MacArthur, Max Lucado, and many more. Today, about 26 million books have been distributed by Crossway.
A significant title from Crossway was the publication of The Holy Bible, English Standard Version in 2001. In 2008, the ESV Study Bible was published which includes thousands of notes. It has become a bestselling Bible and was named “Christian Book of the Year” by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.
Other titles from Crossway include Selected Works of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Biblical Essentials Series, and the Preaching the Word Collection.
