The King’s Business was a monthly publication of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles from 1910 to 1970. In the first decades of its publication, it was the leading journal for conservative Christianity and the early fundamentalist movement. The King’s Business was one part house organ (reporting the activities of its students in Los Angeles), one part celebrity editorializing (with R. A. Torrey and T. C. Horton reacting to America’s role in the first world war, the depression, prohibition, etc), and one part content provider for the church life of conservative Protestants (publishing vast quantities of Sunday School literature).

Its subscribers looked to it for a reasoned defense against the encroachments of biblical criticism, for a balanced view of various theological topics, for guidance about “the Best Books” to read, and for inspiration in their spiritual lives.
