Book Submission Guidelines

Polebridge Press welcomes proposals for books aligned with its mission. Polebridge’s mission is to publish:

  • Up-to-date reference works for biblical scholars, primarily in support of research on the origins of Christianity and the historical Jesus
  • Scholarly books produced by Westar seminars, research projects, and by individual scholars
  • Books and periodicals that disseminate the results of critical scholarship on religion to the public

To submit your proposal, please fill out the form below. A Polebridge Press editorial committee will carefully review the proposal and reach a decision in approximately 3–5 weeks. Please contact Academic Director David Galston with any questions or follow-up inquiries (


The Westar Board of Directors is reorganizing the structural operations of Polebridge Press and is presently not receiving any new proposals.
