Ben Knerr
Ben started working for Christian book publisher Banner of Truth (Carlisle, PA) in 1996. Working there planted a seed for him to distribute Christian books, which he has done ever since. Ben focuses on new acquisitions, ensures that books are shipped out next day (if at all possible), and manages day-to-day operations.

Ben is married to Sarah (Rittgers) Knerr. They live in Mt. Holly Springs, PA with their four children. Ben and Sarah are members at Grace Reformed Baptist Church, Camp Hill, PA.

Mark Rittgers
While attending Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit, PA, Mark developed a love for reading quality Christian books. Mark is the owner of Grace Books.

He and his wife, Cheryl, live in nearby Gardners and they are members at Redeemer Orthodox Presbyterian Church, Carlisle, PA.

Our Purpose and Mission

Books have always played an important role in our lives. From the Christian living and theology books we read in college to the story Bibles we read to our children and grandchildren, books have affected not only our minds but our hearts.

Books are like telescopes—they draw us into worlds of thought that we have never seen before. Apart from the Bible, books are imperfect. Yet they explain, exposit, interpret, illustrate, and apply God’s Word to us. Books use words to explain logic which comes to us from our Creator, who has communicated to us through the Son, the Word incarnate.

Christians are citizens of another realm, journeying on this earth until we reach our heavenly home. We at Grace Books provide books for the journey home.
