What is your Gratis Use policy?

HIM Publications does not have a general “Gratis Use” policy. Our commitments to individual authors and contractual obligations prevent us from having a policy that we can apply to all permission inquiries. Instead, permissions are handled on a case-by-case basis. For additional questions, please contact us.

Note that requests to use more than 250 words from a single source will require additional approvals.

How do I get permission to use images?

Requesting to reproduce images or illustrations requires formal permission (fees may apply). Please email us at

How do I get permission to translate one of your books into another language?

Please contact our licensing department in order to find our more information about translating one of our books into another language by emailing

What is your policy for church use?

Churches requesting to use a small selection of material for church bulletins, sermons or classroom use that falls within our Gratis Use Guidelines, formal written permission is not necessary.

Churches may use stand-alone quotations/Scripture in sermons, bulletins, newsletters, or to be shown on a screen (PowerPoint or overhead projector) without asking permission, provided the source is accurately cited.

Photocopies for churches

Churches must request permission to photocopy any part of a work through formal written permission (fees may apply). Email

If agreed to in writing by HIM Publications, when churches make photocopies, churches must include copyright notice on each photocopy. If the book is in print and available for purchase this citation must include a link to the HIM Publications website
