Michael Thomson

A few months ago I sat down with Michael Thomson, acquisitions editor for Wipf & Stock/Cascade, to talk about his journey into academic publishing. He has made his way through the ranks to become one of the rock stars in the industry. In this edition of “The Stone Chapel” Michael details a number of things that writers ought to know about self-publishing and working with an established press like Wipf & Stock. We talk about the demise of the family Christian bookstores in neighborhoods and communities. It has left a mark on the industry.

Michael has a lot of projects he is shepherding now. Watch for more great books and series from Cascade, Wipf & Stock, and Pickwick.

The Stone Chapel is a podcast of the friends and staff of the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, Texas.  It is hosted by Dr. David Capes, Senior Research Fellow at the library and former faculty member at Houston Baptist University and Wheaton College.  The purpose of the podcast is to bring to our audience great conversations from the world’s leading experts in theology, biblical studies, archaeology, Church history, the Dead Sea Scrolls, ethics, ministry, and a host of other topics close to the mission of the library.

The Lanier Theological Library is a magnet for scholars, church leaders and influencers.  For the last ten years, it has welcomed hundreds of academics and church leaders from across the globe for public lectures, study, panel discussions, consultations, and encouragement.

These podcasts as well as the Lanier library and the Stone Chapel are generously underwritten by Mark and Becky Lanier and the Lanier Theological Library Foundation.  If you have questions or comments, please be in touch: Email david.capes@lanierlibrary.org
