Publisher of the Month: Orbis Books

Our Publisher of the Month feature is a quick way to learn more about a religious publisher and their publications.

This month we focus on Orbis Books who recently moved their UK distribution to Norwich Books and Music.

Founded in 1970 Orbis Books is the book publishing arm of the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers, the first US-based mission sending society. Orbis offers a wide range of books with a global perspective on Christian life and spirituality, theology and mission, world religions and interfaith dialogue, and social issues and current affairs.
