Publisher's Description

In 1939, a 28-year-old Dutch immigrant opened a used book store in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Herman Baker filled his store with 500 books he had collected over the years, displaying them on homemade shelves. Seventy-five years later, his company has grown into one of the most influential Christian publishers in the world.

Yet The Baker Book House Story is more than the story of one man's dream become reality. In its full-color pages is found the story of an independent, family-owned company dedicated to fulfilling its mission through many twists and turns over 75 years. This booklet provides a short history of Baker Book House Company and a delightful glimpse inside the Christian book business. It is a helpful look back and a hopeful look forward for a company whose best days are still ahead. Includes more than fifty photos.
