Acorn Press was established as a not-for-profit company in 1979 with the purpose of publishing books by Australian authors to meet needs in the Australian churches and society at large. Since then Acorn Press has published many books on ethical issues, pastoral care, connecting across cultures and religions, Bible studies, women’s leadership and ministry, and Christian theology. It has produced music and other church resources. Acorn Press plans to continue to publish books for Australians which are Christian, thoughtful and well-informed. These will be non-fiction, concentrating on biographies, ethical studies, challenges to Christian thinking, mission, evangelism, church growth, and ministry resources. A current emphasis is on books which will appeal to the general public.
