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."

Idolatry in Their Hearts is the result of Sandy and Mike's tireless, landmark research into one of the most deceptive and heretical movements of our day--the Indigenous People's Movement. Pastors, laymen, and missionaries in foreign countries should strongly consider this book a Must Read for 2007.
A timely book! In the plenary session at the Urbana "mission" conference, they had two Pacific Island girls doing a hula dance to a native Hawaiian deity called 'Io. It is time we call this for what it is!
Idolatry In Their Hearts is essential reading for both those involved in Christian missions and those who support Christian missions to tribal peoples at a time when the firm Biblical standards of "I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME" is under an almost systematic erosion. In light of the current apostate missiological philosophies being propagated by C. Peter Wagner, Danny Lehman & the Youth With A Mission organization, and others ready to wrongly identify the God of the Judeo-Christian scriptures with pagan deities in the name of an unbiblically redefined evangelicism, the message of this book is vital to the contemporary church of Jesus Christ.
Having been greatly benefited by their watchman ministries (http://www.deceptioninthechurch.com ) and particularly through their DVD video series (http://www.deceptioninthechurch.com/wcgip.html) exposing the errors of the World Gatherings of Indigenous Peoples I keenly await Sandy Simpson's and Mike Oppenheimer's new book Idolatry in Their Hearts. The title, being a take-off of Don Richardson's Eternity in Their Hearts, implies setting the record straight from a Biblical and Church History perspective. Thankfully others are awakening to the extreme missiological error of the World Christian Gathering On Indigenous People movement as expressed through YWAM and others. For example the New Tribes Mission states: "Those who stress culturally felt needs as the key for understanding and accepting the Gospel are confusing the results and the blessings of the Gospel with the Gospel itself." IDOLATRY IN THEIR HEARTS goes further than this and is a wake up call to the Church at large to return to the pure preaching of the true Gospel. Well done, Sandy and Mike.
