The Bible publishers Fox Chapel Publishing and Bible Truth Publishing are partnering to print, distribute and distribute the Gospel of John at churches.
The partnership will be announced today at the annual GOBE Conference in Toronto.
The two publishers announced their partnership in the wake of the deadly shooting of two bible publishers at a Christian church in Georgia.
Fox Chapel Publishing CEO Brian Bickle said the new partnership with the Gospel publishers will “provide additional resources for the families of those who lost their lives.”
Bickle said that the new venture will be able to continue providing Gospel publishing services for families until the end of the year, which would allow them to continue publishing Gospel publications and help their families during this time.
Bickle noted that while the Bible publishers have the ability to print a single book for any church, they are unable to offer the same services to families as they can to churches.
Bickle added that they will be working closely with the families involved and providing additional resources to support families during these difficult times.
“We are committed to helping our families during the most difficult times and are confident that the Gospel will continue to provide answers to some of the questions that many of us have,” said Bickle.
Bishop Daniel McBride, chairman of the Board of Directors of the Georgia Bishops Conference, said he was “profoundly saddened” to hear of the shooting at the church.
“My heart breaks for all those affected by the shooting in Georgia, but I know that God’s will be carried out with great faith and love,” McBride said.
“God will heal us from this crisis, but we are not without hope and grace.
The Gospel will heal the wounds, and the Gospel must be available to families at any time.
Our prayers are with those impacted by this tragedy and for their families.””
Gospel publishing is a powerful tool that is needed in our society today,” said Fox Chapel CEO Brian Farr.
“It is a great way to help families during a difficult time.
The gospel is the way of life and we need to be sure that all who are not members of our Church are also able to read it.”
Bishop McBride also expressed gratitude for the work of both Fox Chapel and the Bible Truth publishers in the aftermath of the church shooting in Atlanta.
“I know that this partnership is a wonderful example of the way in which God’s Word is being used in the lives of people,” McWilliams said.
