Herald Press E-Books Now Available


Mennonite Church Canada/Mennonite Publishing Network joint release

WATERLOO, Ont. and SCOTTDALE, Pa. There’s a naked Anabaptist on Kindle!

Not only that, so are other Herald Press books such as Emma, Isaiah and Ruth, Jonah and Esther.

Altogether, 33 top-selling books from Herald Press are available on Amazon's electronic book reader, including The Naked Anabaptist. Twenty-three other titles are in the process of being converted.

“The world of books is changing quickly, and people want to choose from multiple formats,” says Amy Gingerich, Editorial Director for Mennonite Publishing Network (MPN). “They want the flexibility of reading a paper copy or downloading a book whenever they want.”

Herald Press titles are presently only available electronically on Kindle, but will also be offered in other formats. 

In addition to e-books, Herald Press also offers a number of titles in print on demand (POD) format, which allows it to publish single copies of books when they are ordered.

“POD allows books to be published that are important to our constituents, but for which we anticipate low sales,” says Terry Graber, who directs production for MPN.

“It also allows books to be kept in print that would otherwise be declared out of print due to low sales,” he adds.

Herald Press is the book imprint of Mennonite Publishing Network, the publishing ministry of Mennonite Church Canada and Mennonite Church USA.
