Have you written a book that you think would be an asset to the CBE community? Then this page is for you!

CBE Bookstore advances CBE’s mission to affirm and promote the biblical truth that all believers—regardless of gender, ethnicity or class—must exercise their God-given gifts with equal authority and equal responsibility in church, home, and world.

CBE regularly reviews new books that are relevant to our mission. We post reviews on our website, and if we recommend a book, we also carry it.*

If your book meets the criteria and priorities outlined below, please send us review copies by clicking on the button at the bottom of this page. To facilitate our review process, we request that you submit a PDF copy of your book as well as a print copy. Once we receive the book, it will be added to the queue and reviewed as quickly as possible.

* If a book is self-published, we may not be able to add it to CBE’s co-branded store. To be included in CBE Bookstore, a book must be printed by a mainline publisher or print on demand company such as Ingram or Bookbaby.

Each book CBE carries is carefully vetted to make sure it aligns with our statement of faith and core values, whether or not the author agrees with CBE in other work. By carrying a book, CBE does not endorse the author’s entire body of work, the author, or the organization or denomination they might represent.

The criterion for evaluation is summarized below. You can find more details about the evaluation criteria here.

The criteria for evaluation are found in CBE’s mission statement, and all books must adhere to CBE’s statement of faith and align with our mission, core values, and vision.  Aligning with CBE’s mission and core values means a resource,

  • Affirms that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, is reliable, and is the final authority for faith and practice.
  • Affirms the essential dignity and shared authority of men and women of all ethnicities, ages, and classes.
  • Affirms that men and women are to diligently develop and use their God-given gifts for the good of the home, church, and society.
  • Offer books that teach the shared leadership, service, and authority of women and men from a biblical perspective.
  • Promote books that show how biblical equality affects individual lives.
  • Carry books that expose the impact of patriarchy through other disciplines other than biblical scholarship.

CBE also evaluates books based on cost, availability*, appeal, and other factors to determine if it should be carried. And, while we highly value reviewer input, including a book in our bookstore is entirely up to CBE’s discretion.

* If a book is self-published, we may not be able to add it to CBE’s co-branded store. To be included in CBE Bookstore, a book must be printed by a mainline publisher or print on demand company such as Ingram or Bookbaby.
