bible_image“Nurturing Faith” was first used by Baptists Today as the name of the Bible study curriculum written by Tony Cartledge.

The Nurturing Faith Bible Studies are unique in the scholarship of a consistent writer, the depth of lessons based on Lectionary texts, and the presentation of the lessons within the news journal along with abundant teaching resources (including video) online.

“Nurturing Faith” conveyed the intent of providing more-scholarly Bible study than most Sunday school materials yet also applicable to daily living. But the question was raised: “What other resources can add to that mission?”

A unique approach to book publishing soon emerged — along with the tag line: “Something Good Is Growing.” Indeed, Nurturing Faith continues to grow as an extension of the publishing ministry that began more than 30 years ago.

Nurturing Faith™ respects the intelligence of its readers and their commitments to growing in faith. Books and other resources are collaborative efforts with authors, sponsors and organizations with shared values.

A creative team of writers, editors and designers has been assembled to produce the varied Nurturing Faith resources available at
