About Zondervan Academic

Zondervan Academic, a division of Zondervan and HarperCollins Christian Publishing, has provided scholarly works for teachers and students of the Word since 1931.

Zondervan Academic is privileged to partner with the scholarly community in providing Christ-honoring resources in service of the academy and the church worldwide. Together, we produce academic works in various areas of biblical-theological studies that exhibit faithfulness to historic Christian faith, cultural relevance, and excellence.

Our biblical and theological books are used in academic institutions, churches, and personal studies worldwide.

As a broker of ideas, the Zondervan Academic publishing program seeks to reflect the breadth and diversity—both theological and global—within evangelical scholarship while maintaining our commitment to the heart of orthodox Christianity.
