Publisher of Baptist, Puritan, Reformed, and Historical Literature
Sprinkle Publications was born in year of our Lord 1975. As a Baptist pastor since 1962 and a lover of “old books”, historical and theological, we increasingly began to see the need for more substantive and truthful literature. Residing in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia had given us the opportunity to purchase wonderful old literature; however, as the word spread and friends continued to ask us to locate copies of out-of-print volumes, we became aware that the original copies were becoming more scarce and costly with time. So in 1975, with no money and only a small summer house as collateral for a loan, we reprinted 2000 copies of The Life and Campaigns of Lt. General “Stonewall” Jackson, by R. L. Dabney. With no mailing list, and totally by word of mouth this printing sold out in 13 months. To date we have sold approximately 50,000 copies of this volume. We continue to add new titles, now numbering approximately 150.
We rarely reprint new manuscripts since this is not the intent of the business. The actual printing and bookmaking is done with major book manufacturers. Our job is finding the old books, preparing them for reprinting, marketing, advertising, and shipping out the volumes. We do not have a retail bookstore open to the public. We ship our books all over the US and several foreign countries. We work out of a small warehouse located adjacent to our home in the mountains of Virginia. We have no outside employees.
We believe Sprinkle Publications is a ministry as well as a business. A visit to most “Christian Book Stores” reveals the vast wasteland of “fluff” currently available in the theological section and “reinvented” history in the historical section. To combat the onslaught of humanism and post modern theology, we offer books which contain the old truths of the Scripture and original sources of history.
