About Us

Who are we?

Baylor University Press is an academic, peer-reviewed press publishing primarily in the field of Religion.

What do we publish?

We publish academic monographs and scholarly works that become research tools and academic resources for scholars, as well as classroom texts for teachers and students.

What are we looking for?

While Baylor University Press focuses on the academic field of religion (as well as its cognate fields, including history, philosophy, and ethics), there are diverse ways in which religion shapes projects that we publish.

Most often, religion is the object of the book’s study—its primary subject. Religion can also be a lens through which a text or tradition or culture can be studied.


We at Baylor University Press are passionate about books—books that have a vocation, ones that seek to do "good." In an age that is obsessed with information, we publish, promote, and cultivate wisdom that will help better humanity today and usher in a more promising tomorrow.

Established in 1897, Baylor University Press publishes about thirty new books each year for scholars, students, and intellectually curious general readers.

With a leading program in religious studies, Baylor University Press also boasts stellar works of social criticism, publishing in the areas of cultural studies, sociology, rhetoric, political science, history, popular culture, and literary criticism.

Baylor University Press is a member of the Association of University Presses.
