Kevin Bruce Reed (born May 9, 1955) is an American Presbyterian author, theologian, and publisher.

Reed grew up in Dallas, Texas, and attended the Richardson, Texas public schools. He left Dallas in August 1973, to attend Moody Bible Institute, in Chicago, Illinois, where he graduated with a diploma in Bible and theology in 1976. He later studied at the University of Texas at Dallas, where he graduated with a B.A. in English.

Reed publishes through Presbyterian Heritage Publications, of Dallas. He has written extensively on Presbyterian worship practices, especially on the regulative principle of worship, which is the belief that the scriptures provide a complete guide for how Christian worship ought to be done, and that things not specifically taught or commanded (such as the use of musical instruments in worship) should be avoided. Some of his books on worship include Biblical Worship and Biblical Church Government. He has also been instrumental in reprinting classic Reformed authors such as John Knox and Samuel Miller. Reed worships with the * [1] East Texas Reformed Fellowship.
