& Book Company

Innovative Publisher of Quality Books by Creative Authors

Parson's Porch & Book Publishing is a book publishing company with a double focus.  We focus on the needs of creative writers who need a professional publisher to turn their words into books, & we also focus on the needs of others by turning their books into bread by sharing our profits with those who are homeless and displaced by meeting their basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and safety.

Parson’s Porch Books is delighted to present to you this series called Sermons Matter.

We believe that many of the best writers are pastors who take the role of preacher seriously. Week in, and week out, they exegete scripture, research material, write and deliver sermons in the context of the life of their particular congregation in their given community.

We further believe that sermons are extensions of Holy Scripture which need to be published beyond the manuscripts which are written for delivery each Sunday. Books serve as a vehicle for the sermon to continue to proclaim the Good News of the Morning to a broader audience.

The Rev. Dr. Matthew A Rich provides us with a superb example of what sermons look like and read like. If only we could hear them the first time he preached them to his congregation.

We celebrate the wonderful occasion of the preaching event in Christian worship when the Pastor speaks, the People listen and the Work of the Church proceeds.

Take, Read, and Heed.


The Rev. Dr. Matthew A. Rich has served as pastor of Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church since June 2013. Reid Memorial is the fourth congregation he has served in eighteen years of ministry. Dr. Rich is the author of the book, A Week from Next Tuesday: Joy Keeps Showing Up (Because Christ Keeps Showing Up), a middle school lunch room volunteer, and most importantly, he is the husband to his wife Sarah, and the father of three children: Will, Sam, and Bekah.
