Zen Garcia, with his son, Justin James Garcia, founded Sacred Word Publishing, dedicated to publishing revelatory truth, and to assisting other authors to do likewise. Our mission is to print the truth of YAHUAH ELOHIM's word, which can be found in many places, including ancient texts spread across all cultures and peoples of the world.
Our authors, including Zen and Justin (read more about them on the "Authors" page), devote their research to Truth, unaffiliated with institutional bias. And, we offer a variety of services for prospective authors. You can contact Zen at ZenGarcia2010@gmail.com
As an online bookstore, SWP strives to provide the reader with multiple opinions on many diverse subjects. We also preserve ancient, esoteric texts, such as the Aramaic/Palestinian Targum. Our catalog of titles contains rightly-dividing commentary on literatures of antiquity, Christian testimonies, anthologies of poetry, current events, and more.
Laurel Austin, our official photographer & "Wellness Writer," is a mom of 6 children. Her first four children are all vaccinated and all four of them are on the autism spectrum. Her younger two children have never been vaccinated and they are both "normal," typically developed children. They have been through genetic testing and all kinds of therapies and protocols that gave Laurel insight into vaccine injury and heavy metal toxicity. In addition to sharing what she has learned from this experience, Laurel also shares with others what she has learned about living a healthier lifestyle, including: cultured and fermented foods, her favorite being kombucha. Laurel is a professional photographer, former sign language interpreter, and, she co-hosts with Zen Garcia twice a month on vaccine and health related issues.

Kees Bruin helps Sacred Word Publishing with book cover designs. Religious themes dominate his art as he draws on the rich iconography and spiritual heritages of Judeo-Christian and Western philosophies to provide a fresh perspective on Christianity. His enduring, enigmatic works intrigue and tease with their tenuous play between the real and the symbolic - what seems to be and what is.
