More About Barbour Publishing, Inc. & 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!"

The Bible Promise Book Mar 12, 2007
Beautfully bound! Perfect size for my purse. This is a wonderful collection of Bible promises for every need - comfort, anger, fear, pride, pain, loss, and all the other difficult encounters on earth, until we join Him in Heaven.
The best book ever Mar 8, 2007
I have had one since 1988 and my daughter looked at mine and wanted one. So we ordered another one. Its the very best book to have, you can carry it in your purse which I do at all times. If your a man its small enough to go in a Jacket pocket or inside a suit pocket.
Recommend Feb 24, 2007
This book is small enough for a purse or just to carry around. I highly recommend it. It is a quick reference when you don't have your bible handy
Good Topical Compilation of Bible Verses Oct 24, 2006
This is a good topical compilation of Bible verses rooted in the promises of God. It's no substitute for Bible and devotional reading, but a nice supplement reference tool. The topics are varied and practical for the ups and downs of the Christian walk. I recommend this little book.
Great, But Even Better After You Have Read the Bible. Sep 17, 2006
This is actually a pretty good book to have. As a previous reviewer pointed out, what this book does is it separates 1000 or so Bible verses into different categories. (These categories includes anger, forgiveness, guidance, guilt, lonlieness, mercy, peace, prayer, self denial, worry, and several others.) Even if we read the Good Book fairly often, it is easy to fall into the trap of already knowing the story and not stopping to appreciate some profound and beautiful passages. The really nice thing about this book is that if you are going through a time where one of these categories is applicable to your life, you can easily find Bible verses that apply to your situation. Though interestingly, the prologue of this book says: "It is in no way intended to replace regular Bible study." In fact, this book is probably best read AFTER you have read the Bible. I am not saying you need an encyclopedic knowledge of the Bible to appreciate this book, but you should know if the verses are a proverb on their own (Proverbs), part of a prophecy (Ezekiel or Isaiah), from Jesus himself (Gospels), or from one of Jesus' apostles (Paul's letters). EXAMPLE: In 'lonlieness,' there is a verse from the Gospel According to John. Jesus says: "I will not leave you comfortless..." (John 14:18). Well, many of you probably know that in "John," Jesus said this at the last supper, and that he is talking about the Holy Spirit that will come. It's a very nice book to have. It is just my opinion that you will get more out of it if you already know the context to which the verses come from.
