About Us

For over 50 years, Fortress Press has been a pioneer in religious scholarship. Our commitment to publishing timely, relevant, and transformative materials has led our publications to become authoritative works in their respective fields—works now referenced by academics and scholars, studied at colleges and universities and collected in libraries and seminaries around the world. Fortress Press publishes in three main areas; FP Education, FP Academic, and FP Reference. Click on the appropriate link below to learn more.



Fortress Education was created to develop innovative, transformational classroom resources for the seminary and undergraduate setting. Led by our Developer, David Schoenknecht, Fortress Education is motivated by the simple idea that there must be a better way. What can we do to improve the way we develop Christian leaders for the Church and the Academy? The creation of transformational teaching resources begins with a deep understanding of teachers, students, and the kinds of learning experiences that really work. Learn more

Building on a rich publishing history, Fortress Press is launching Fortress Academic—a new imprint for today's academic landscape. With its launch, we're expanding our publication programs and deepening our commitment to both the established and emerging generation of authors. Our editorial team is actively seeking proposals for scholarly works in biblical studies, theology, and Christian history. Learn more

Fortress Reference provides scholars and students with reference tools built on trusted foundational content, the best current scholarship, and innovative content delivery. Fortress Reference projects aspire to be relevant, accessible, easy to use, and functionally designed. We will seek out creative partners to join us in developing reference resources for today's and tomorrow's students, scholars, and professionals. Learn more
