CEO Greg Clarke says it will greatly support Australian Christian writing while also bringing Acorn’s immense skills and experience to Bible Society.
He added that the Bible will always be at the heart of Bible Society – but they’re keen to encourage strong Christian writing -which points readers towards greater engagement with the Good Book.
Acorn Press chairman Rev Paul Arnott is thrilled and says the reason Acorn began 37 years ago was to publish inspiring and challenging books by Australian Christians.
He believes the partnership with Bible Society will ensure that a vital publishing avenue will remain open for Australian Christian authors.
Acorn Press will continue to publish under its current name.
