Our mission at the House of Prisca and Aquila is to produce quality books that expound accurately the Word of God to empower women and men to minister together in a multicultural church. Our writers have a positive view of the Bible as God’s revelation that affects both thoughts and words, so it is plenary, historically accurate, and consistent in itself, fully reliable, and authoritative as God’s revelation. Because God is true, God’s revelation is true, inclusive to men and women and speaking to a multicultural church, wherein all the diversity of the church is represented within the parameters of egalitarianism and inerrancy.
The Word of God is what we are expounding, thereby empowering women and men to minister together in all levels of the Church and home. The reason we say women and men together is because that is the model of Prisca and Aquila, ministering together to another member of the church—Apollos: “Having heard Apollos, Priscilla and Aquila took him aside and more accurately expounded to him the Way of God” (Acts 18:26). True exposition, like true religion, is by no means boring—it is fascinating. Books that reveal and expound God’s true nature “burn within us” as they elucidate the Scripture and apply it to our lives.
This was the experience of the disciples who heard Jesus on the road to Emmaus: “Were not our hearts burning while Jesus was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?” (Luke 24:32). We are hoping
to create the classics of tomorrow,
significant and accessible
trade and academic books
that “burn within us.”
Our “house” is like the home to which Prisca and Aquila no doubt brought Apollos as they took him aside. It is like the home in Emmaus where Jesus stopped to break bread and reveal his presence. It is like the house built on the rock of obedience to Jesus (Matt. 7:24). Our “house,” as a euphemism for our publishing team, is a home where truth is shared and Jesus’ Spirit breaks bread with us, nourishing all of us with his bounty of truth.
We are delighted to work together with Wipf and Stock in this series and welcome submissions on a wide variety of topics from an egalitarian inerrantist global perspective.
The House of Prisca and Aquila is also a ministry center affiliated with the International Council of Community Churches. We heartily endorse the work of Christians for Biblical Equality.
