About Us

Instant Apostle is a pioneering publishing house seeking to bring new and existing authors to the market to respond to the urgent social issues of our day. We publish books written from a Christian perspective, but which are relevant to those of any faith and none. Our publications cross all genres, from autobiographies and fantasy fiction, to life ministry and academic titles.

What we are looking for are creative, authentic and original ideas, produced at any length; quick and relevant, insightful and opinionated. And as the name implies, these will be released quickly, in paperback and Kindle formats.

A crucial part of Instant Apostle’s vision is to publish books that address the pressing and sometimes overlooked social issues of our day. Written by people with extensive experience in the fields they address and an urgent desire to see things change, these books challenge readers and show us how we and people we know can respond.
