Publishing high-quality writings that represent historic Christianity and serving the diverse interests of evangelical readers are the heart of Baker Publishing Group. Whether a Plain People novel or a Bible, these publications remain a favorite.
Seven publishing companies of Christian-based books make up Baker Publishing. For more than 50 years the company has been producing reading material for all ages while always helping Christian readers apply biblical truth in all areas of life—whether through a well-told story, a challenging devotional, or the message of an illustrated children's book. This principle has put Baker Publishing at the top of the publishing world. Most readers will associate Baker Publishing with the ever-popular works of best-selling author Beverly Lewis, who has written extensively about the life of the Plain People. Lewis’ works of fiction have resonated with booklovers of all cultures as she blends the lifestyle of the Amish and Mennonite communities into compelling novels. Lewis has penned more than 80 books and is a frequent author on The New York Times Best Sellers list. Writing Amish-related novels, she uses her firsthand knowledge of the Plain heritage she grew up with in Pennsylvania Dutch Country and creates novels for all ages to relate with whether readers are Amish or English. The popular books have expanded to the small screen with her million selling The Shunning recently made into an Original Hallmark Channel movie.
