A New Beginning

Grace Publications Trust began with the publication of its hymnbook, Grace Hymns, in the 1970s. Since 1981 it has been publishing a series of simplified condensed classics. The first of these was Life By His Death, a modernisation and abridgement of John Owen’s classic work, “The death of death in the death of Christ”. Over 20 such classics have since been produced, but GPT’s magnum opus is undoubtedly the series on church history by Nick Needham, 2000 Years of Christ’s Power.

Other books by lesser-known modern authors, such as Clifford Pond, Frank Allred, Eric Lane, Tom Watson, Peter Naylor and Ernest Kevan, to name but a few, have added variety to its repertoire.

However, recent changes in the world of Christian publishing have had a significant effect on Grace Publications Trust's distribution arrangements and publishing programme. New titles will frequently be jointly published with Christian Focus Publications.


Nick Needham's church history, 2000 Years of Christ's Power, is available in a new hardback edition. This includes the long-awaited fourth volume, which brings the story up to the eighteenth century.

A particular focus of the ongoing work of Grace Publications Trust is books on church principles.
