Mark Driscoll Resurgence Publishing Now Tyndale House Imprint
Pastor Mark Driscoll, founder of Seattle’s Mars Hill Church and the Resurgence training ministry, and Dr. Justin Holcomb, Resurgence director, have announced a book publishing partnership with Tyndale House Publishers.
In a blog announcement Driscoll said, “We’ve reached an agreement with Tyndale House Publishers to publish numerous titles under a new imprint called Resurgence Publishing. Tyndale will publish all of my books work moving forward, in addition to other Resurgence authors whom we’ll announce in the coming months. We’ll kick things off this fall with the launch of my next book.”
Since Resurgence entered the publishing world back in 2008, the publishing ministry has released nearly 30 titles from more than a dozen authors. They have reportedly sold over 750,000 books.
Driscoll said, “Tyndale and Resurgence are about as close as you can get to a perfect match. For our part, we produce a ton of content—books, study guides, curriculum’s—and Tyndale offers a unique combination of theological integrity, practical knowledge, and industry experience that is rare in the world of Christian publishing.”
Ron Beers, senior vice president for the Tyndale House Publishing Group said, “We are honored to be the publishing partner for Resurgence Publishing. Resurgence and Mars Hill are known for engaging culture with biblical truth—no easy task these days. They do this with excellence and in highly creative ways, without compromising the biblical message. This is also Tyndale’s sweet spot, and together I hope and pray that we will be used by the Holy Spirit to help spark a resurgence of genuine faith in our country and in other countries around the world.”
Driscoll said, “Our goal is to publish 5 to 7 Resurgence books per year from a wide range of voices. Tyndale has graciously given us the leeway and the resources to recruit authors, so we want to open it up.” Resurgence is expected to receive thousands of book proposals to fill the half-dozen publishing slots that are open.
