Random House to Sever Convergent from Waterbrook/Multnomah

Christianity Today reported yesterday that Random House is doing what it should have done in the first place, separating the editorial and marketing staff of Convergent Books from the staffs of Waterbrook and Multnomah. The move comes months after the controversy over the book God and the Gay Christian which argued that same-gender sex isn’t sin and resulted in the publisher being removed from the National Association of Religious Broadcasters (NRB). The two Evangelical imprints will continue to originate in Colorado Springs, while the Convergent products will now be based in New York City.

Of interest to readers here is the image below showing the parentage of the various imprints in our stores. Note that the graphic separates out publishers and imprints, and places imprints into one of four categories:

  • Evangelical
  • Progressive
  • Catholic
  • broadly spiritual
