This genre includes publications for young children through senior adults. The market includes needs for religious adult publications, children's publications from nursery school through junior high, teens, pastors and leaders, missions, women, and devotional publications. There are about 500 religious publications. Generally speaking, most of these publications have small circulations and go from no payment, up to competitive payments from the larger publications.
There are also book publishers that publish books exclusively for the religious market. They cover many topics, but all must have a religious slant. Religious publishers believe they have a mandate to publish only religious books. Although there are denominational and nondenominational publishers, most of the denominational ones now publish books for an audience wider than only their denomination. They all make their books available in religious bookstores. You will find a list of Christian and Catholic publications and book publishers in the Christian Writers' Market Guide, http://www.stuartmarket.com.
