WaterBrook Multnomah was launched in September 1996 as an autonomous evangelical Christian publishing division of Random House, Inc. as WaterBrook Press. Since the release of our first books in February 1998, our publishing program has grown dramatically. With the purchase of Harold Shaw Publishers in 2000 and acquisition of Multnomah Publishers in August 2006, our list of authors includes such best-selling and well-respected writers as David Platt, Liz Curtis Higgs, Randy Alcorn, Kay Arthur, David Gregory, Joanna Weaver, Shannon Ethridge, Steven Furtick, Shaunti Feldhahn, Andy Stanley, Francine Rivers, Cindy Woodsmall, Joshua Harris, and Bruce Wilkinson.
As a Christian publisher, our product list is abundant with compelling books filled with life-changing messages and talented authors. We offer books for Christian living and spiritual growth, Bible studies, tips on parenting, inspiring works of fiction for adults and youth, engaging books for children, series just for men, titles on marriage, love, finances, and prophecy. As you take the time to browse our Web site we are confident that you will find an engaging read.
As we look toward the future, our goal at WaterBrook Multnomah is to seek those projects that will help bring people face to face with God, providing a deep well of spiritual refreshment with books that are relevant to the unique needs of today’s Christian.
- To publish a broad spectrum of books that provide encouragement, support, and challenge to Christians in every aspect of life.
- To communicate “old truth through new eyes” by always looking for a twist that adds “spark”, or a fresh approach, to a book.
- To find authors who will challenge and provoke thought among our readers, ultimately leading them to renewed hope and redemption.
- To call readers to an ever greater standard of living with Christ.
As a division of Random House, Inc.–the largest publisher in the world–WaterBrook Multnomah’s task is to build a major presence in the Christian Booksellers Association, competing with the top Christian publishers in our market today.
One of the things that makes us distinct is that we have a small company atmosphere, allowing for entrepreneurial thought, while still enjoying the benefits of a vast corporate structure. The combination of the two allows us to bring the best of both worlds to our authors.
We believe that our experienced leadership team in all departments brings a level of expertise and an informed and unified publishing approach that is on par with the best—while we continually endeavor to explore new tracks to take us toward increased measures of success.
