Northwestern Publishing House (NPH) provides Christ-centered, biblically sound resources to the members of WELS and beyond. NPH publishes Forward in Christ and Meditations: Daily Devotional, elementary and Sunday school curricula, Bible studies, worship materials, music, and faith-strengthening books. In 2023, NPH released more than 30 Christian resources in print and digital formats, including:

  • An Ever-Present Help in Trouble: A portable devotional booklet containing 40 devotions that offer gospel comfort for any personal or widespread crisis, whether economic, natural, medical, a loss, or another traumatic experience. The reflections share the comfort of God’s love and providence with those suffering from life’s disasters, reminding you of God’s promises of strength.
  • Esther: Providential Persian Queen: Invites participants to examine Esther’s epic saga in this seven-session Bible study. Each session includes an opening prayer, references to other parts of Scripture, and multiple discussion questions ideal for either individual or group study.
  • Hymns for Life Hymnology Curriculum: A three-year, three-level curriculum for K-8 that studies 90 hymns from Christian Worship: Hymnal.
  • The Splendid Task of the Ministry: A Pastoral Commentary on the Pastoral Epistles: This professional commentary features verse-by-verse translations from the Greek text and extensive “Thoughts for Ministry” applications throughout. It is one of the relatively few current commentaries on 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus written from a conservative Lutheran law and gospel, Word and sacrament perspective.
  • Christian Worship resources: Resources released in 2023 include “Easy Hymn Accompaniments: Chorale and Piano Editions,” “Foundations,” “Commentary on the Propers Year B,” “Playlist,” and “The Service: Setting Five.”

NPH released several other titles to strengthen faith, including The Baptismal Life, The Heart of Faith, My Christian Worship, Singing the Small Catechism, and many additional books, Bible studies, and music pieces.
