The Review and Herald Publishing Association is one of two major Seventh-day Adventist publishing houses in North America and is the oldest institution of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The organization publishes books, magazines, study guides, CDs, videos and games for Adventist churches, schools and individual subscribers. It also prints and distributes the Adventist Review magazine.
The roots of the Review and Herald Publishing Association go back to 1849 when James White produced The Present Truth and, in 1850, The Advent Review. From there the publication house grew and moved to Battle Creek, Michigan.
A major fire on December 30, 1902 destroyed the offices. The headquarters was then moved to Takoma Park, Maryland. In the 1950s, the association developed The Bible Story by Arthur S. Maxwell. The set was notable for its size—including 411 stories from the Bible—and for having color illustrations on each page opening—an extravagant expense for a book publisher at that time.
In 1983 the organization moved to Hagerstown, Maryland onto a 127-acre (0.51 km2) campus and employs approximately 100 people.
In 2014 the Review and Herald Publishing Association merged with its sister publisher, Pacific Press Publishing Association, relocating some of its personnel and assets to PPPA, located in Nampa, Idaho.
