Inter-Varsity Press (IVP) is the publishing wing of Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship. It claims to support the publishing or distribution of well over one million books each year to over 150 countries, including the translation of titles into over 80 different languages.[1]


IVP has been publishing Christian books since the 1930s (originally books were published under the name Inter-Varsity Fellowship - IVF). Ronald Inchley, who died on 13 April 2005 (aged 93), was taken on by Douglas Johnson as the IVF's Publications Secretary soon after graduating from Birmingham University in 1936, a post which he held, apart from an interlude for war service, until 1976.[3]

Inchley was succeeded as Publishing Director by The Rev'd Frank Entwistle,[4] who had joined IVP in 1973 and remained there until his retirement in 2002.[5]

Prior to August 2004, when it was constituted as a separate Nottingham-based company[6] and charity[7] in its own right, IVP operated as a trading subsidiary of Inter-Varsity Fellowship Trust Limited.[8] At that time, editorial staff were based in UCCF's Leicester offices, with the warehouse and distribution in Norton Street, Nottingham (having moved from London in the 1970s).
