About Chalice Press
Chalice Press publishes resources that invite individuals and groups into deeper relationship with God, equip them as disciples of Jesus Christ, and send them into ministries as the Holy Spirit calls them. Our theological tradition is evangelistic (we share with others our experience of God), inclusive (we are guests at a table where everyone is welcome) and mission-oriented (our gratitude to God compels us to serve others). We intend to support the work and ministries of congregations and the people who lead them. This means that we publish a broad variety of resources for any of us seeking a meaningful life, for the men and women who serve congregations as pastors and lay leaders and for seminary students preparing for ministry.

What We Publish
Chalice Pages offers short-form content on almost any subject for a wide variety of readers.

For book-length works, please visit Lucas Park Books, our self-publishing service at www.lucasparkbooks.com.
