ACTA Publications


ACTA Publications began in 1957 as a publisher of books and audio/video resources for religious education and spiritual development. It has since broadened its editorial scope to include sports; social justice and community organizing; caregiving, grief, and mourning; storytelling and novels; and children's books. We publish 8-10 new titles per year and have a backlist of over 400 books and cds. ACTA titles are non-academic and aimed at the average reader. Most of our titles are meant to be given as gifts, both on special occasions or to people who are going through specific life situations or stages.

We now say that our books and media can be given with confidence to all, meaning that every title we send out has the quality content, design, editing, printing, and reasonable price you have come to expect from ACTA over the last 60 years.

As the company has evolved, we have changed our acronymn to stand for A Commitment to All to remind ourselves that we are committed to our customers, authors, colleagues, suppliers, employees, and the communities we serve.

You can count on all the products on this website to be honest, insightful, exciting, well-written and edited, and compelling, but never offensive or "over the top."
