  • Tab 2 - Choice Book

    Tab2 Several years ago, GFP decided to offer a program for individual Christians to build a solid library for personal study and encouragement. We also wanted to make additional copies available for sharing with fellow believers at a reduced cost. Club members have told us how the extra books were used: small group Bible studies, building their church library, and personal encouragement of young believers.

    Because of the Choice Book Club’s proven ministry, we are offering new memberships. Now you can have the privilege of receiving quality books monthly to enjoy and to encourage others in their Christian life. For a small investment each month you can reap eternal dividends.

    Tab4The Mission of Gospel Folio Press

    To gain and keep the trust of those seeking dependable Bible teaching presented in a fresh way, by providing one source for a wide variety of carefully selected, value priced, first-rate Christian resources, using effective and honorable means to lift up the Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour.

  • Tab 5 - Choice Gleanings

    Tab5 Every morning as believers around the globe lift up their hearts to God to begin their day, a familiar component of that process will be the Choice Gleanings calendar.

    The 2011 calendar will be mailed worldwide so that, as for the last seventy years, those who read it daily will gain encouragement and comfort in the situations and circumstances of life. For those who preferring an electronic version, they can subscribe to a daily email version of the calendar. Either way this is a wonderful instrument used by God to build up His people.

    In 1922 William J. Pell began Gospel Folio Press. Becoming exercised about producing a daily devotional calendar, Choice Gleanings was launched in 1940 and was an immediate success. Within a few years Gospel Folio Press found itself producing 40,000 calendars annually. Material for the calendars was gleaned from books, originally, but over time the calendar included more original writing than 'gleanings.' Today almost sixty writers from around the world contribute meditations to the Choice Gleanings calendar.

Gospel Folio Press Ministries

Distributor of Quality Christian Books


John 3: 16 was the verse that William J. Pell began with when he started printing on a hand press in his mother's parlor in 1920. This was the humble beginning of Gospel Folio Press Ministries.

Will Pell began to print the monthly gospel paper, Words of Peace. Assuming he would never print literature with more than one fold (a "folio" is a piece of paper folded once), Pell named his company Gospel Folio Press.

In 1939, Will was compelled to create a daily devotional calendar. The calendar (initially called The Remembrancer) launched in 1940. Choice Gleanings soon became a popular daily meditation for many Christians. Today Gospel Folio Press distributes more than 60,000 calendars world wide annually. The 2015 calendar marks 75 years of publishing and distributing Choice Gleanings.

Around 1925, Gospel Folio Press began printing Sunday School papers. In 1995-1998, with the input of Sunday School teachers and Superintendents, the curriculum was revised and updated. The Line Upon Line Modular Bible Lessons are intended to be able to teach all ages the whole Bible in a clear, concise, and consecutive manner. Gospel Folio Press's Sunday School material is a great resource for Sunday School teachers, Bible study groups, and anyone else wanting to gain a comprehensive knowledge of God's word.

Gospel Folio Press started printing gospel literature in 1923 and continues to print and distribute gospel tracts. In 1997 we designed a small yet attractive folded Just a Minute tract which - appropriately - only takes a minute to read.

Gospel Folio Press continues to distribute gospel tracts along with Christian books, Bibles, commentaries, Sunday School material, hymn books and daily devotionals. We also publish 10-20 new book titles each year.

Whether this is your first visit to our site or you've been here before, we hope you find the resources offered to be a help to your spiritual life. We believe the Bible to be the Word of God and heaven's treasure house of knowledge, including "every spiritual blessing in the heavenlies in Christ" (Ephesians 1:3). When we open the Scriptures, heaven opens to us; we are able to look right into the heart and mind of God.

The teachings of God's Word are neither ancient nor modern. They are both timeless and timely, sufficient for men and women of God to be "thoroughly furnished to every good work" (2 Timothy 3:17). It is our desire to provide carefully selected quality Christian books to our customers for their growth and encouragement.

Have a blessed day!
