Looking for Christian book publishing services? Look no further than Argyle Fox Publishing. Founded on the Christian principle known as the Golden Rule, Argyle Fox is run by a team that enjoys publishing distinctly Christian books.
In fact, the first book Argyle Fox ever published was one such book, The Secret Place: 7 Meditations for the Last-Day Church, written by Pastor Larry Briggs.
But Argyle Fox doesn’t only publish doctrine and theology. We’re a publishing house that offers an array of Christian faith book publishing services.

What Our Publishing Company Does
At Argyle Fox Publishing, our publishing packages include having a professional editor putting your book through an editing process (light edits even for books that don’t require editing—regardless of word count), design services (page layout and cover design), and a guarantee that you’ll have a positive publishing experience, because you retain complete creative control along the way. (In other words, if you don’t like how something looks, we’ll change it!)

We Publish Christian Faith Books (Just Not All of Them)
This post wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t spell out a bit more about our Christian book publishing services. Because while we love publishing Christian books, we feel an obligation to not publish books with dangerous theology included.
What’s this mean? It means that though your book may include aspects of the Christian faith, we may not be willing to publish it.
If your book contains doctrine or theology that is blatantly false, we will ask you to remove or change the section in question. Feel a certain doctrine is too near and dear to your heart to remove from your book? With grace, we will likely ask you to seek publication elsewhere.
Content we are uncomfortable and unwilling to publish includes that which promotes the health-and-wealth gospel (such as that promoted by Joel Osteen or Creflo Dollar), name-it-claim-it theology, and other doctrine that we struggle to find in the Scripture.
We realize that discussing this puts us in deeper water than we belong. After all, our logo is a fox head that features diamonds that echo the name Argyle Fox. However, a great article on The Gospel Coalition website lays out some of the dangers of such theology. Feel free to give it a read if interested. And there are plenty of publishing houses and folks in the publishing industry who don’t hesitate to publish any and all religious books without hesitation.
Let’s Publish Your Faith-Centric Book
Ready to get your Christian book off your computer and onto bookshelves?

In a short while, you can become a published author and see your book cover alongside other popular book titles!
Get started with our Author submission form.
Once your book is published, your initial investment (our fees) is the only money you’ll pay us. Because we put you in full control of your book throughout your publishing journey. With your online account, you can watch sales figures for your book and receive royalties directly to your bank account. (We don’t take even a cent royalty payment. You get it all.)
Need further copies of your book for sale? No problem. You’ll be able to order them at wholesale prices, so you make more money per copy sold. Whether you go with a softcover (paperback) or hardcover (also known as hardback), you’ll pay the lowest possible cost per book. So you can help grow God’s kingdom without breaking the bank.
Prefer a Major Publisher?
Argyle Fox is not a traditional publisher. We’re a publishing company that works with authors to bring their books to life. We don’t give advances or fund marketing efforts (not even press releases). We provide a service and set you free to do with your book as you wish.
This is a great choice for self-publishing authors who are putting out their initial book and don’t know what to do. Or for writers who have published books on their own in the past and want something of a publishing committee to get their book baby to the finish line.
If the better choice for you is a traditional publishing contract with one of the major publishing imprints, check these out: Moody Publishers, HarperCollins, Crossway, Lifeway, and Bethany House. These leading publishers of Christian books with strong backlists, and publish a wide variety of books, from academic work and other professional books to Christian literary fiction to children’s picture books.
