Grace &Truth books began from humble beginnings. It stemmed from a desire of one family, husband and wife and their four children, to own a Christian bookstore. They started out as a small Christian book distributor in 1993/1994. Since then, they have grown into a large distributor of Christian books worldwide. They have published over 80 books themselves. They have brought back the heritage of good Christian moral books from the shelves of history. They are the largest distributor of Christian character books for children from the 1800’s.
