For more than 150 years, Nashville has been ostensibly the “Buckle on the Bible Belt” as the center of world religious publishing. Those ubiquitous Gideons Bibles that you use as a coaster on your hotel room desk were published here. Other church-based publishers based in Nashville include the United Methodist Publishing House, Lifeway Christian Resources (formerly the Baptist Sunday School Board), Southern Baptist Convention, and The Upper Room. If you’ve ever held a hymnal or Bible in your hands, odds are good that it has a Nashville connection.
