Non-print offerings expand, with retailer backing

With a growing number of Christian publishers stepping up their digital publishing emphasis, Christian retailers are cautiously optimistic about the impact of the push.

Zondervan’s October announcement that it would serve as the exclusive distributor of the Reader Digital Book by Sony to the Christian retail channel spotlighted the non-print focus.

In addition to Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, Baker Publishing Group and David C. Cook are increasing the number of titles they offer to Sony Reader and Amazon Kindle users.
