Quest Books is the imprint of the Theosophical Publishing House, the publishing arm of the Theosophical Society in America. This organization, with 150 branches nationwide, is part of the International Theosophical Society founded in New York in 1875 with present headquarters in Adyar, Madras, India.
Located at the national Society’s headquarters in Wheaton, IL, Quest Books is dedicated to publishing works compatible with the aims of the parent organization:
To promote fellowship among all peoples of the world and to encourage the study of religion, philosophy, and science, so that we may better understand ourselves and our place in the Universe. The Society stands for complete freedom of individual search and belief.
Since 1966, Quest has sold over 4 million books by leading cultural thinkers on such increasingly popular subjects as transpersonal psychology, comparative religion, deep ecology, spiritual growth, the development of creativity, and alternative health practices. Through our distributor, Red Wheel/Weiser, we offer a backlist of approximately 300 titles including audiobooks, CDs and DVDs. In addition, Quest is the sole agent for the Theosophical Publishing Houses in India and the Philippines.
The Theosophical Society’s elegant forty-acre estate in Wheaton also maintains a fine library and sponsors a variety of educational seminars open to the public. The Quest Bookstore, which specializes in religious, psychological, and spiritual titles, is open seven days a week. Membership offers reduced fees for events and bookstore purchases and a complimentary subscription to the Society’s distinguished bi-monthly journal, The Quest. The Quest is also available through paid subscription.
