Submitted a nonfiction proposal to them on 10-27-23. Four months later, on 2-22-24, I received the following rejection which seems to be a bit of a cut-and-paste job as it consists of two slightly different sized fonts:

Thank you for bringing your manuscript proposal to our attention.

We are grateful for your consideration, but I am afraid that in our very full program we do not see a niche for this proposal, and that we must therefore disappoint you. What does not suit our current needs may suit perfectly the needs of another publisher, and we wish you well in your efforts elsewhere. Unfortunately, our editors, much as they would like to help, do not have time to offer explanations or individualized advice regarding unsolicited proposals that we are unable to pursue.

Again, thank you for contacting Eerdmans; we wish you all the best in your efforts elsewhere.

Always verify publisher's information before sending your query, and review the publisher's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

A publisher listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that publisher by QueryTracker.

Before contacting a publisher, authors should verify and assess the publisher's requirements and suitability by visiting the publisher's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad publishers. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
