Moody Publishers is a Christian publishing company that is focused on proclaiming the gospel message through its products. This vision is clearly stated within the company's mission statement. "Our mission is to educate and edify the Christian and to evangelize the non-Christian by ethically publishing conservative, evangelical Christian literature and other media for all ages around the world; and to help provide resources for Moody Bible Institute in its training of future Christian leaders."[1]

In 1894, Moody Publishers was founded by Dwight L. Moody's vision to provide low-priced, high quality Christian books for young believers. Today Moody Publishers is known for many popular books and authors including Gary Chapman, Jerry B. Jenkins, Tony Evans, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, and John MacArthur. Moody Publishers is home to two imprints: Northfield Publishing and Lift Every Voice Books, each designed for specific markets.

Moody Publishers (a not-for-profit organization) is a part of the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago. All of the organization's excess revenue is given to fund the paid tuition program for MBI students who come from around the world to study and prepare for full-time Christian service.

Northfield Publishing[edit]

Northfield Publishing was organized in the fall of 1992 to target the general trade market. Certain Christian phraseology and scriptural references are omitted in the books it publishes to avoid reader confusion. The line offers books covering such topics as finances, self-help, and relationships from a contemporary, yet biblical perspective. Leading the Northfield line is a Gary Chapman's The Five Love Languages.
