Castle Publishing is a place for two kinds of people: those who love to read high quality home-grown Kiwi books with a positive message from a Christian point of view, and Kiwi authors who have a great story or message to share.

Our website lists nearly 250 different titles, with more being added all the time, covering a vast range of subjects and telling all kinds of stories. Our current new releases list is a snapshot of the range: a memoir about ministering in Colombia and LA, a book about thriving as a single mum, a book about the use of imagination in prayer, a fun picture book about animals competing in the Olympics, an exciting adventure story in the style of Narnia, not one but two engrossing novels for women, a firsthand account of the impact of the charismatic movement in the Anglican church, a book of stories about witnessing, a memoir about a journey with cancer, a collection of sermons, a missionary adventure set in early 1900s India, a novel that tells the story of Jesus through the eyes of Mary, and the travel memoirs of an inspirational octogenarian.

We’ve been doing this for over 20 years (our boss, John Massam, has been in publishing for much, much longer!), and we take pride in making good Kiwi Christian books the best they can be.

Head over to our website and enjoy browsing. If you dream of publishing your own book, let’s talk.

Stuff Jesus Never SaidWe’re a bit slow off the mark, but it gives us great pleasure to announce that a title we distribute – Stuff Jesus Never Said – has won a gold medal in the 2017 Illumination Book Awards.

Using humour and insight, and riffing off the style of internet memes, Stuff Jesus Never Said shatters the myth of the angry, fault-finding God and celebrates the God that Christ revealed – a God who wants us to prosper and live well. It’s¬†beautifully presented in full colour, hardcover coffee table format. More about the book here.

This is the second time author Paul Ellis has won an Illumination medal.

Congratulations Paul.
