Paulist Press

Striving to stand at the intersection of faith and culture, Paulist Press is committed to publishing quality materials that:

  • bring the good news of the Gospel to Catholics and people of other religious traditions;
  • support dialogue and welcome good scholarship and religious wisdom from all sources across denominational boundaries;
  • foster religious values and wholeness in society, especially through materials promoting healing, reconciliation, and personal growth.

Paulist Press began in April, 1865, when Paulist Fr. Isaac Hecker published the first edition of “The Catholic World” magazine.

Since 1960, Paulist Press has served as a major publisher of books on theology and spirituality, expressing the Paulist Fathers’ missions of evangelization, reconciliation and ecumenism / interfaith dialogue.

While based on classical approaches to Scripture, the commentaries and articles are not limited to historical-literary issues but draw upon relevant theological and pastoral ideas found in the text.
