Covenant Publishing Co., Ltd has been a major publisher of books and pamphlets of British Israelism since 1922, set up by The British-Israel-World Federation.[1][2]

History[edit]

William Pascoe Goard became the first director of Covenant Publishing in 1922 after moving to England. A prolific author himself on British Israelism he published many of his own works through the publishing house of the B.I.W.F until his death in 1937.[3] Covenant Publishing has published books and pamphlets (as well as other merchandise) since 1921, although the publisher was not "officially" set up until the year after. Publications from 1921 were published under "Covenant", while from 1922 as "Covenant Publishing" Co., Ltd. Some of the earliest book publications sold over 40,000 copies,[4] and Covenant Publishing later set up their overseas publishing house in America.[5]

The current headquarters are in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, England. Covenant Publishing still continue to print and sell British Israelism literature.
