Known for publishing thoughtful, educational, and formational titles, IVP is proud to feature fiction books that give an imaginative voice to Christian values and offer new ways to apply those values to your daily life. Our growing collection of academic fiction brings biblical and historical context to life, and our spiritual formation fiction transports readers inside the stories of characters who have implemented spiritual practices into real life.


In this series which began with the bestselling Sensible Shoes, author Sharon Garlough Brown introduces you to spiritual practices and invites you to join in the journeys of four women as they—and you—gain a new understanding of friendship, spiritual truths, and a deeper life with God.

Splashed with informative sidebars and images, the volumes in this growing series illuminate the world of the gospels through a compelling historical fiction perspective. In these imaginative narratives, New Testament scholars bring to life the historical and social realities of the biblical world.
