Internet’s amazon.com lists B&H with 3 awards in ’98

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–Proof that Broadman & Holman has crossed over into the mainstream market is only an Internet address away.
Two Broadman & Holman books received three 1998 best-seller awards from amazon.com, marking the publisher — a division of LifeWay Christian Resources — as a producer of “great books.”
“With a typical best-seller list, great books have to compete for attention with titles outside their genre,” Amazon explains on its “1998 Award Winners” Internet website. “As a result, readers may not discover the books they would love. At amazon.com, we’re committed to seeing that change.”
The two B&H books taking amazon.com best-seller honors were:
— “Murder on the Titanic” by James Walker for historical religious and inspirational fiction (found under the literature and fiction genre), as well as religious fiction — mystery (in the religion & spirituality genre).
— “Tiptionary” by Mary Hunt in the personal finance and budgeting category (under the business and investing genre).
“This is the first time we’ve won an amazon award to recognize a best-seller,” said Bucky Rosenbaum, vice president of B&H’s trade and academic books department. “It is a recognition that B&H is now succeeding at selling our books into the mainstream.
“This is consistent with our new vision statement — to provide biblically based solutions that spiritually transform individuals and cultures.”
Broadman & Holman currently lists more than 1,000 books on the amazon.com website. The amazon.com 1998 best-sellers category listings may be viewed at www.amazon.com/1998.
