Thomas Nelson partners with Liturgical Press
Thomas Nelson announced a distribution agreement with Catholic publisher Liturgical Press, known for popular and academic books on topics such as liturgy, theology, ministry and prayer. The new partnership will allow both publishers a chance to expand product offerings to the more than 65 million readers in the Catholic market, they said.

"Distribution of Thomas Nelson titles is important for Liturgical Press because it greatly expands the selection of Bibles and general audience books that we can offer our readers," said Peter Dwyer, director of Liturgical Press.

"We are very enthusiastic about this new opportunity, which will allow us to reach the Catholic community with our books and Bibles," said Michael Hyatt, president and CEO of Thomas Nelson. "We look forward to working with Liturgical Press on future joint projects that will enhance both of our lists."
