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 The Word (For Life) NLV Bible: Word (For Life) NLV Bible (NEW LIFE BIBLE)?
Very simple English unlocks the true feeling behind the words Dec 8, 2007
When I first got looked at this Bible, I felt like the language was so simple it was dumbing me down. Felt a bit like reading caveman talk. The concept has interested me so I looked at it again and decided to buy it. Why? I noticed that it enables me to hear the message on a totally different level than intellectually. I'm pretty well educated, so reading is no trouble for me, but there's something primal about reading the Bible in this version. It keeps the reading from being too cerebral and more on a heart level. Interestingly, Jesus' words aren't changed too much because he used pretty simple language for the poor and uneducated to understand. This is not a Bible only for poor readers or the mentally challenged. Even the graduate student level people can gain from this version. It has made me hear the words in Jesus in a whole new way yet without changing the meaning as in some other versions like the Message or the New Living Translation... I've read them all. This version would also be excellent for reading to young children. My only reservation is the choice of some words don't seem best in certain places, but they are slight and may just be a matter of taste.
