Congratulations to Lion Publishing

Today, Lion Hudson Publishing celebrated their 40th anniversary with a service of thanksgiving in Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford.

Lion Publishing was founded in 1971 by Pat and David Alexander. As we heard during the service, their inspired objective was to make Christian books available via secular bookshops. Their success in achieving this during their early years surpassed their hopes and expectations. This success later extended to an international market, and their books are now available in over 200 languages.

The first book they published, The Lion Handbook to the Bible, is still in print 40 years on and a limited edition, bound and cased copy was given to everyone who attended todays celebration.

The Lion Hudson range of books of bible stories for children are second to none. If you are looking for a gift for your child, godchild, niece or nephew, ST PAULS can recommend nothing better than a book from the Lion Hudson range.

Lion Publishing merged in 2003 with Angus Hudson Ltd, creating the largest independent publisher of books inspired by the Christian faith.
