Mission Statement

The mission of Sola Publishing is to provide individuals and congregations with educational resources that are trustworthy and useful, at a reasonable price. By providing solid Biblical resources, coming from a confessional Lutheran perspective, we seek to give all Christians a deeper appreciation for Holy Scripture with the distinctive focus on God's use of his Word to bring about repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
 

About Our Name, Logo, and Mascot

color-profile-catrsm.pngSola is the Latin word for "alone"or "only." The name Sola comes from the great slogans of the Reformation:  Sola Gratia (grace alone), Sola Fide (faith alone), and Sola Scriptura (scripture/word alone). Using Sola as the name for our publishing ministry is meant to convey that we want to focus "only" on the essentials, by keeping Christ and his work at the center of all we do.

The Sola logo incorporates a tilted cross atop the right-most letter. It is meant to call to mind the image of the cross being carried, and Jesus' injunction to "take up your cross and follow me."  In this spirit, we hope to preach and teach from what Luther would call a "Theology of the Cross" — a realistic and down-to-earth faith that does not seek its own glory, but looks to Christ alone for life and salvation.

The mascot for Sola publishing is "Luther's Small Cat" — which, of course, is a play on the name of Luther's Small Catechism.  In the Small Cat children's curriculum series produced by Sola Publishing, whenever the catechism is quoted, the cartoon cat appears with the header: "Luther's Small Cat says ..."  We hope that the little cartoon cat will convey our genuine desire for children to learn and trust the promise of Christ that has been passed down by those who have gone before us.

"As for you, continue in what you have learned and firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it, and how from childhood you have known the sacred writings that are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus."
