Moody Press was founded in 1894 by the great 19th century evangelist Dwight L. Moody as a division of the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. Moody Press, now Moody Publishers, continues to operate as the publishing arm of MBI, channeling all of its profits back to the school for funding the education of its students.
Education. Edification. Evangelization.
The vision of Moody Publishers is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and a biblical worldview in such creative and powerful ways that individuals worldwide will live in increasing measure as His fully-devoted followers. Our mission is to educate and edify the Christian and to evangelize the non-Christian by ethically publishing conservative, evangelical Christian literature and other media for all ages around the world, and to help provide resources for Moody Bible Institute in its training of future Christian leaders.
The Name You Can Trust
Moody Publishers is far and above one of the most trustworthy publishers in the industry. In the 1960s, Moody Publishers adopted the slogan, "The Name You Can Trust" because of strong and positive customer feedback about our integrity.
"There is a bedrock of trust of Moody Publishers in the industry," says Jerry B. Jenkins co-author of the Left Behind Series. "Book dealers have felt they can refer customers to those books [without concern over content]."
The motto stuck. It has continued to define who Moody Publishers is in the marketplace. We promise that every product and contact with our company will reveal that we remain "The Name You Can Trust."
