Three Reasons for a Publishing Ministry
Resources — Books and other print materials provide numerous advantages for study. Nazarene pioneer Phineas F. Bresee thus encouraged ministers: “Get books; get them at any sacrifice. Be a student. Be systematic. The Holy Ghost will take all this equipment and use it to teach and win souls for the kingdom of God.”
Roots — Books connect us with our heritage, as Free Methodist founder B. T. Roberts observed, “[Books preserve] the principles which led to the formation of the church. Preachers and people may backslide; but the literature remains to remind them of what they once were.”
Reach — By their portable, yet durable, nature, books can minister where their authors may never travel. Thus, Martin Wells Knapp, founder of God’s Bible School, explained his own publishing ministry: “With the pen and press we can preach to multitudes far beyond the reach of our personal presence and also for centuries after ‘Our poor lisping stammering tongues lie silent in the grave.’”
