Kirkdale Press expands trade line in 2022

Bellingham, WA—Lexham Press is pleased to announce a lineup of new books from its trade imprint, Kirkdale Press.  Three key titles are scheduled for early 2022, with others planned for later in the year.

Jesus and Gender: Living as Sisters and Brothers in Christ by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick and Eric Schumacher promotes a Christ-centered vision for gender that emphasizes unity and mutual support.

Faith in the Wilderness: Words of Exhortation from the Chinese Church edited by Hannah Nation and Simon Liu is a collection of encouraging messages with unique insights on perseverance and suffering for today from Chinese pastors.

Endure: Building Faith for the Long Run by Daniel Ritchie encourages readers with habits to foster a vibrant and enduring faith in the face of adversity.

Trade editor Deborah Keiser oversees acquisitions for the imprint. Keiser is an industry veteran with more than two decades of experience. Keiser said, “​​I’m delighted by the quality and innovative Christian resources that Kirkdale Press is producing.”

Kirkdale Press operates within a broadly Protestant, Confessional, and Evangelical perspective. Kirkdale addresses the needs of everyday Christians with transformational titles that grow the reader’s relationship with God and their neighbor, increase biblical literacy, and put the Word into action in their life. In contrast with Lexham Press, which primarily serves academic and ministry audiences, Kirkdale serves the trade customer with individual and group study, faith formation, and spiritual growth titles. Part of Faithlife LLC, Kirkdale Press benefits from the well-established audience of millions served by Logos Bible Software, the leading digital tool for Bible study.

Kirkdale Press seeks new and diverse voices as well as established authors who share the goal of strengthening the church and God’s people. We are actively seeking titles from agented and unagented authors. To submit a proposal, please email
