Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company
Located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company is an independent publisher of religious books, from academic books and reference works in theology, biblical studies, and religious history to popular titles in spirituality, social and cultural criticism, and literature. Founded in 1911, the company has developed a reputation for publishing excellent literary and intellectual works and a myriad of responsible viewpoints from across the religious spectrum. In the spirit of this tradition, Eerdmans looks forward to expansion in the area of digital publishing to offer its trusted and groundbreaking resources to an even wider audience of academics, lay and ministry leaders, and general readers. Eerdmans also publishes quality children's book under its imprint, Eerdmans Books for Young Readers. These children's books tell delightful stories about adventure, family, and friendship, but they also help children wrestle with special issues, such as grief, divorce, racism, poverty, and war. Some of our best-selling kids books include The Child's Story Bible by Catherine F. Vos and Leading Little Ones to God by Marian M. Schoolland and Paul Stoub. Our children's books have won numerous awards, including the prestigious Caldecott, awarded to A River of Words: The Story of William Carlos Williams by Jen Bryant and Melissa Sweet.
