CambridgeBibleBaker Publishing Group has been the North American distributor for Cambridge University Press’ Bible publishing since July 1990. Now, 24 years later, Baker and Cambridge Bibles have agreed to move sales and distribution back to Cambridge.

Dwight Baker, president of Baker Publishing Group, said the move signals a refocus.

“We plan to focus exclusively on our mission, which is to publish original works,” Baker said.

Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing David Lewis added: “It has been a privilege and an honor to be able to sell Cambridge Bibles to the North American market for the past several years. We are confident that Cambridge will do an excellent job of supplying these wonderful Bibles to the market going forward.  We wish them every success.”

Baker’s final day to ship Cambridge Bibles to customers and accounts is May 23.  Cambridge University Press, which is part of the University of Cambridge, will begin accepting orders from June 2.
