Create Your Custom Textbook!
Customize Your Content
Professor’s Choice offers instructors in theology, ethics, religious studies, and philosophy an opportunity to create customized texts to better serve their classroom needs.
This groundbreaking publishing service offers affordable, customer-selected material drawn from a consortium of respected educational publishers. By selective use of chapters, sections, and articles from previously published works, educators create their own customized texts. Educators may even include their syllabi or other teacher-created or selected materials in their custom book. The book is then printed, bound, and shipped by Professor’s Choice to campus bookstores or an alternative destination of the educator’s choice.
Professor’s Choice publishing service is offered through Saint Mary’s Press, a nonprofit publishing house founded by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, a teaching order and champion in the field of modern education. State-of-the-art technology allows this partnering of customers and publishers in order to better serve customer needs.

What Makes Professor’s Choice Different?
Professor’s Choice really does make it as easy as providing your syllabus with full bibliographic details. Once the resources are collected and priced, you can make the final determination of which selections to include in the resource. The final product is a readily available compendium of texts at an affordable price. I firmly recommend Professor’s Choice.
In the creation of our theology curriculum we wanted resources and texts that were specific and varied. We needed copyright for many articles and suggestions for other resources. Not only was their consultant always available but she went out of her way to visit and learn about what we needed for our students. Professor’s Choice provided copyright and publication services as they guided us in creating our own customized text. What a tremendously helpful experience and invaluable resource for us.
Working with Professor’s Choice was easy! We were able to compile more primary resources for our 9th grade religion class in lieu of a single text, which we had used for many years. We were especially pleased that a portion of an out-of-print resource on the Gospels could even be included for our 10th grade ‘Gospel Stories, Gospel Choices’ class.
Professor’s Choice has been an essential element of the work that Ministry Training Source does in customizing ministry formation programs to meet the unique learning needs of dioceses throughout the country. I think Professor’s Choice is one of the best-kept secrets in ministry formation!
Students have appreciated having all their readings for the term available at their fingertips. I have used Professor’s Choice for several courses already and plan to continue doing so in the future. This has been a helpful, useful tool.
I am thoroughly pleased with the end result of our work on this custom text. It will enable me to teach an introduction to theology course exactly as I wish it to be done. The Professor’s Choice consultant was completely professional, efficient, and cooperative.
