Under the name of the American Baptist Publication Society, the organization produced tracts, Bibles, Sunday school curriculum series, nonfiction and fiction books and denominational resources. The Publication Society registered the trademark Judson Press in 1922 in honor of Adoniram and Ann Judson to preserve both the denominational and missionary spirit.

Its backlist of 335 book titles (print and e-pub) are available in both secular and Christian bookstores as well as in online stores, libraries, educational institutions and churches. Judson publishes titles on Christian living, pastoral and church leadership, Baptist beliefs and history, preaching, Christian education, and the intercultural church.
