About Handsel Press

The Handsel Press was founded in 1976 to publish high quality academic and more popular books relating Christian faith to other fields of study, and to the arts. It operates ‘from the centre . . . beyond the margins . . . ‘

While books are divided into main categories such as Theology, Bible, Ethic, History and Memoir, under the overall heading of Faith, these categories overlap. Handsel Press upholds the tradition of ‘the Scottish democratic intellect’, and expects the sciences and the arts to talk to one another.

The Press also publishes a number of biographies, commentaries and poetry at a very affordable price.

The Press is owned by the Handsel Trust, SC014135. Handsel Press is a not-for-profit company.
