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!"

Truth. Seeing black and white in a gray world. Dec 30, 2007
BEST, MOST READABLE, CONCISE! A JEWEL FOR THOSE WHO FEEL THE TUG OF THE WORLD & WISH THEY KNEW WHAT GOD WOULD TELL THEM ABOUT EVERY ISSUE! This book is listed as one that would appeal to teens and young adults -- well, I'm 59 years old and discovered some of the most profound, simple-to-understand truths regarding what the world promotes and what God promotes. Every truth is one page, a short read, supported by scripture, and sharp as a two-edged sword in its impact. This book is marvelous, and I would recommend it to everyone, young and old alike, as we journey through this world of confusion and compromise.
A Revelation Sep 27, 2007
I happened across this book in an airport bookstore and bought due to pure curiosity. It's one of the best I've ever read. At night before I go to bed, or whenever I need to feel a little more grounded, I'll read a few pages and I instantly feel better inside. It's easy to read, easy to understand and easy to apply to your daily life. I'd HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone looking for answers or looking for ways to feel closer to God. Excellent book!
EXCELLENT resource for living Aug 16, 2007
This book is a great resource for anyone looking for answers in today's troubled world. It would make a great gift, especially, for teenagers who are faced with a myriad of choices in a society which does not always follow Biblical guidelines. I loved the fact that it specifically quotes verses from the Bible where these truths are found. FANTASTIC!!
An amazing book. Jul 6, 2007
I love this book. It's genius is in its simplicity. I like to read a few before bed, or whenever it catches my eye. It helps keep the influence of god close to your heart, and for someone seeking answers, it would be a great help(except for the lack of table of contents, but with so many pages that would be a very long table). I would highly recommend this to anyone, and plan on buying more to give as gifts.
