The Forum for Theological Exploration and Chalice Press Collaborate on New Book Series

St. Louis and Atlanta – The Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE) and Chalice Press are entering into a publishing partnership that will provide a new way for scholars, staff, program participants, and others who have experienced FTE’s time-tested programing to share their unique, inspiring approaches to ministry with the world.

Through this cooperative effort, Chalice Press will publish print, digital, and multimedia resources. FTE will guide the selection of authors and projects offered under this new series.

“This cooperative venture with FTE is a powerful extension of both our missions,” said Chalice Press president and publisher Brad Lyons. “FTE works with many talented, emerging leaders who will shape the future of the Church for years to come. Chalice Press publishes content for people who want their faith to matter, people who want to make a positive difference in the world. By collaborating with FTE, we look forward to sharing fresh ideas from these emerging voices.”

“FTE is excited about the possibilities this partnership and series offer to our wide network of diverse young leaders and partners,” said FTE President Stephen Lewis. “This opportunity provides a platform for emerging Christian authors in FTE’s network to share innovative ideas about ministry and scholarship.”

The first book in the FTE-Chalice Press partnership is expected to be available in late 2015 or early 2016.
