More About Barbour Publishing
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!"
Reviews - What do customers think about 365 Inspirational Quotes (365 Perpetual Calendars)?
This is not a calendar Jan 26, 2010
I received this calendar four days ago. I just realized the calendar is useless as a calendar. Why? Because it does not have the days on the pages. Therefore, it is useless as a calendar. If I had know, I would have purchased something else. I feel cheated because I am sure the maker realized the need to list the days. What if I forget to flip the page during the weekend, which happens frequently. I think the maker just want to reissue the same product year after year. Without the days noted on the pages, the maker can sell their leftover stock in sucessive years.
Good idea. More description of content would be nice. Feb 28, 2009
I absolutely love a good quote. When I'm having a bad day, need a pick me up, or anything, it's always nice to have good words from another to give you a boost. I also enjoy the idea of a perpetual calendar. When you get to the end of the year, you can just turn it over and start again.
The reasons I only gave this product 3 stars are as follows: The title of the calendar is 365 Inspirational Quotes. What they don't tell you is that these quotes are largely religion based quotes. Specifically, Christian quotes including Bible verses as some quotes. As a Christian, I have no problem with that, but I would have liked to have known that before buying it. So far, every Bible verse that has come up is one that I already am very familiar with. Next, people who are not practicing Christians should be made aware of the content of the calendar. Lastly, I honestly don't find a lot of these quotes to be all that inspiring. I also have a Zen Quote Of The Day Calendar, and many of those quotes are more inspiring and thought provoking. Ultimately, the calendar is in need of a better description of its contents. With that, I think it would be purchased more by people who would enjoy it more. The lack of a good description of the product before I purchased it is the main reason for the 3 star review. I hope I have corrected that at least to a degree in this review.
