At MBS Direct, we're always searching for new ways to expand the variety of content and format options available for your institution.  One key way we are able to do this is by expanding and building relationships with publisher partners. In 2016, we've added digital releases from several new or existing publishers— the following list is a few of our new and expanded digital partnerships:  

Hendrickson Publishers

Hendrickson Publishers has a strong history of producing Bibles as well as outstanding academic, trade, and reference books. Beginning in 1981 with a vision to provide foundational reference works to scholars of the biblical text, their continuing goal has always been to bring powerful and insightful voices to a broad readership—and to make them affordable to readers.

Today, their academic publications meet the needs of the religious studies academic community worldwide with works on the Hebrew Bible, New Testament, ancient languages (Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, Akkadian, and Ugaritic), ancient Near Eastern studies and archaeology, Qumran/Dead Sea Scrolls, second temple literature, early biblical interpretation, theology (biblical, systematic, historical, and practical), and religion and culture.
