Our Story

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.

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.

Our Core Values

1. Gospel First

John 3:16 For Elohim so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

2. Research, Study, and Share Truth No Matter What

Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of Elohim to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.

3. No Gossip and Always Stay Humble

Psalms 101:5 Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.

4. Support the Orphaned and Widowed

James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before Elohim and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Our Team

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.

 Kees Bruin

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.

Anatoly Shumkin - From Russia. He graciously gave permission for Zen to use his paintings for the Great Commission Series. Very interesting background and information on his website:
