More About A. J. Russell & Jill Jones
Since the company began as "Book Bargains" in 1981, much has happened to bring this company from a small remainder seller into a prominent Christian publisher. When Hugh Barbour began buying and reselling other publishers' excess stock, he was introducing a new concept to Christian bookstores. Soon, though, the new company began publishing its own titles, beginning with the classic allegory The Pilgrim's Progress in 1984.
With a new name, Barbour & Company, publishing operations continued with two books that Hugh Barbour says "really put us on the map" — Oswald Chambers's beloved devotional My Utmost for His Highest, and Barbour's first original title, The Bible Promise Book. Each found a ready market and, millions of copies later, remain on Barbour's best-selling backlist. Barbour & Company had found its niche: publishing Christian classics at value prices.
Mission The Barbour mission was unique in Christian retailing, and it was beginning to take hold in Christian bookstores around the country. Through the 1990s, the company experienced phenomenal growth in sales and product line and changed its name once again, to Barbour Publishing, Inc. The years surrounding the turn of the millennium would bring almost dizzying change to the company, with new products, new relationships, and even new ownership.
In 1998, Barbour Publishing entered into a trade distribution agreement with Discovery House Publishers, the publishing arm of the Grand Rapids-based Radio Bible Class Ministries. Since DHP is the publisher of the updated edition of My Utmost for His Highest, the agreement brought a unified approach to the distribution of both the classic and updated editions of this powerful book.
After a remarkable forty-seven year career in Christian publishing (a career honored by the 1999 Lifetime Achievement Award of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association), Hugh Barbour decided to retire. The company he had built into a thriving business was acquired by its president & CEO Tim Martins, the man he'd been grooming for leadership for several years preceding.
Today, Barbour's frontlist releases number more than 150 titles per year. That, coupled with nearly one thousand stock titles, allows Barbour to provide retailers around the globe with affordable and accessible Christian products for everyone. In its brief history, Barbour has shipped over one hundred million books.
It's fourteen million books sharing the message of Christ!
Faithfulness to the Bible and Jesus Christ are the bedrock values behind every book Barbour's staff produces from its 115,000-square foot facilities in Uhrichsville, Ohio. When the company's unit sales reached fourteen million in a fiscal year, Martins commented, "I'm really excited about that figure. That's fourteen million Christian books - not fourteen million hamburgers, or fourteen million cars, or fourteen million computers. It's fourteen million books sharing the message of Christ!"

Review by Leslie Granier for Reader Views (4/08)
"365 One-Minute Meditations: God Calling" is a collection of beautiful and uplifting scriptures taken from the Bible. The scriptures are very short so one can read them when s/he has limited time and still have enough time to spend reflecting on their meanings. The book, chapter, and verse where the reading can be found in the Bible are listed so the reader can read further if he or she finds particular interest or comfort in a specific quote. Each day a new scripture is featured, encouraging the reader to create a routine or a set time to spend reflecting on God's word.
The compact size of this book (slightly larger than five inches by four inches) makes it convenient to take anywhere. One could slip it into a purse and read it at the bus stop or a waiting room at the doctor's office. It could also be packed in a briefcase and brought on business trips so God will never seem far away. This book is cleverly designed so that it has a built-in bookmark. There will be no more having to find a random scrap of paper to hold your place.
The beautiful scenery and artwork in this book accentuate the peace and tranquility of the scriptures. Devout religious people, as well as those struggling to find spiritual guidance and renewal, will find comfort in reading the word of God and the interpretations that are presented. This book would make a great gift for religious holidays, such as Christmas and Easter. But it will also be a wonderful gift for graduates to help them better experience God's presence and importance in their adult lives. Those in despair who need guidance to make it through difficult times would greatly benefit if they invest the time in this book.
The book, though small in size, is great in content. The reading for each day has a title letting the reader know what the subject matter is. This is helpful when someone needs instruction or motivation in a particular area. He or she can choose what scriptures to read instead of feeling the need to reflect on the scripture that is listed under that day's date. "365 One-Minute Meditations: God Calling" is an excellent resource for anyone seeking to improve his or her spiritual life.
