About

Our aim at Union Publishing is to cultivate your taste for a deeper knowledge of God, encouraging you in the truth, goodness, and beauty of Jesus Christ. Our range of resources is designed not just to inform the head, but to reform the heart, enabling readers, listeners and viewers to delight in Christ.

How does heart reformation come about? Only through the regenerative work of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit transforms our hearts as we see the marvellously beautiful God shown in Christ lifted up, according to the Scriptures. When this happens, our hearts are melted and our love for the triune God enflamed. We do not just say true things about God, simply depositing knowledge, but we communicate in a way that helps us to experience and delight in the gracious, abundant, and lavishing love of the Father, in the Son, through the Spirit. It is here, and only here, that we feel differently, love differently, walk differently. At a time when leaders seem to be dropping like flies due to moral and spiritual failure, the church of Christ so desperately needs a reformation of the heart.

 

The work of the gospel in the power of the Spirit affects our heart, and we seek to share the knowledge of a surprisingly beautiful, merciful Saviour, who is to be desired—not merely comprehended. This is the vision that ignites Union Publishing as we evaluate manuscripts, interact with authors, shepherd books through the publication process, make design choices, and prayerfully prepare works that will build up our readers in the faith.

 

We publish books, such as Michael Reeves’ Authentic Ministry, as well as others in partnership with our friends at Crossway and 10ofThose, such as Dane Ortlund’s Deeper. Our website hosts a wealth of free digital resources, from articles to podcast episodes—so whether you are looking to study something in depth or find some encouragement on your commute, there is something here for you.
