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 devotionalMy 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. - Publisher.
