Museum of the Bible and Tyndale House sign 180-book deal, forming a new, long-term partnership

WASHINGTON D.C. and CAROL STREAM, Ill. (January 21, 2022)— Today, Museum of the Bible and Tyndale House Publishers announce a publishing partnership based on their shared commitment to invite all people to engage with the Bible.

Over the next decade, this partnership will create 180 new products and digital resources that feature original content from Museum of the Bible and new Tyndale resources enhanced by Museum of the Bible content.

“We knew during the planning stage for Museum of the Bible that the biggest impact would result from promoting our resources far beyond its walls,” said Harry Hargrave, CEO of Museum of the Bible. “From our curriculum, videos, books, and digital content to our films and podcasts, we reach millions more internationally than can visit in any given year. We are thankful to have such a robust publishing partner help us with an exciting new wave of resources.”

The first line of slated books builds on successful resources already in print. Titles will be released annually with the goal of reaching 180 by 2032. Given its recent acquisition of Rose Publishing and Hendrickson Publishers, Tyndale House is poised to develop and distribute these museum-enhanced books to an even wider readership.

“We look forward to combining the rich resources of Museum of the Bible with Tyndale’s resources and publishing expertise to share about the global impact of the Bible,” said Jeff Johnson, Tyndale’s Chief Administrative Officer.

Alongside Johnson and Hargrave, Jerry Pattengale, PhD, founding scholar and senior advisor to the president of Museum of the Bible and professor at Indiana Wesleyan University, will work closely with Tyndale on the publication of each volume. “Tyndale House exemplifies a successful publishing institution,” said Pattengale. “It continues to expand and meet the needs and desires of those seeking Bible-based material, concepts, and inspiration.”

Noted New Testament scholar Christian Askeland, PhD, will partner with Pattengale in representing the museum’s content team. Askeland, known for exposing “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife” as forged, is the museum’s senior researcher.
