CHICAGO, IL—Independent Publishers Group (IPG) is thrilled to welcome Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., an independent publisher of religious books, to their growing roster of digitally distributed partners. This will expand Eerdmans’s digital books’ availability to major vendors globally, including the backing of IPG’s digital marketing programs.

Founded in 1911, Eerdmans has developed a reputation for publishing excellent literary and intellectual works and a myriad of responsible viewpoints from across the religious spectrum. From academic books and reference works in theology, biblical studies, and religious history to popular titles in spirituality, social and cultural criticism, and literature, Eerdmans titles and authors display the breadth and depth of religious publishing.

“We are looking forward to working with IPG on our e-book distribution,” said Shane White, VP of sales for Eerdmans. “I have been impressed with IPG’s staff and systems since we began our discussions in June.”

Eerdmans joins fellow religious publishers distributed digitally by IPG, including Baylor University Press, Charisma Media, Harvest House Publishers, InterVarsity Press, Kregel, and Lion Hudson, making IPG the premier digital partner for religious publishers. Some of the distributed e-books include popular titles like The Road Back to You (Formatio, InterVarsity Press, 2016), The Harbinger (Frontline Charisma, 2011), Liturgy of the Ordinary (Formatio, Intervarsity Press, 2016), and A Song of Home (Kregel Publications, 2017).

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to represent a long-established and well-respected Christian publisher such as Eerdmans,” said Alex Kampmann, VP, Business Development. “Through our digital e-book sales, marketing, and distribution services, we look forward to increasing Eerdmans’s reach in the global e-book marketplace and getting more Eerdmans books into the hands of more readers.”   

IPG has been selling e-books since 2001, and in 2016 they acquired INscribe Digital, expanding both IPG’s and INscribe's client bases with a state-of-the-art digital distribution platform while providing access to over 250 e-book retailer partners. They’ve since become a leader in the digital distribution marketplace.


About Independent Publishers Group (IPG): 
Founded in 1971, IPG was the first organization specifically created for the purpose of marketing titles from independent presses to the book trade. Today, IPG’s wide reach into the book market includes distribution of both print and e-books from a wide array of publishers, digital printing and traditional publishing. With consistent growth year over year, IPG’s success has come from supporting and encouraging the growth of its publishing partners in the United States and worldwide.
