Both Christians and non-Christians alike are buying books and media by Christian authors and producers, which address life issues held in common by these groups. As a result Christian products are often found in other than religious sections of many bookstores, such as business, family, lifestyle, etc. Still the best place to find a complete inventory of such media is in a Christian bookstore online, such as Faith Christian Center’s, Faith Life Bookstore Online (http://www.faithlifebookstore.com).
A report by The Barna Research Group, Ltd., an independent marketing research company, found that “the consumer population for religious books is large enough to contain several unique segments, each of which is capable of spawning bestsellers.”
Rev. George T. Frey, Jr., Pastor of Faith Christian Center of Montreal (http://www.faithchristiancenter.ca), says, “for over three years before attending a church I regularly investigated Christian media that presented answers and solutions to my life issues. I know of people who have extensive libraries of Christian books and media products who do not yet participate in a local church.”
Consider the following samples of contemporary Christian media titles: The Love and Respect Experience, Your Best Life Now, Eat This and Live; each addressing common life issues such as, relationships, successful living and healthy eating respectively, from a faith perspective but in practical terms. And then there is the abundance of Christian fiction, not just about events at the end of the world, but romances, adventures and children’s stories.
Faith Life Bookstore Online recognizing the broad value of contemporary Christian books and media, provide such non-traditional product categories as: The Children’s Shop, Fiction, Movies, Music, Dolls and Collectables, and many more. And this in addition to the traditional categories of Bibles, Christian Education, Church Supplies, etc.
Anyone looking for Christian books or practical titles by Christian authors will find a great advantage by shopping online. For example, Faith Life Bookstore’s online bookstore, has an inventory of over 180,000 Bibles, books and other Christian products and gifts. I am not aware of a brick-and-mortar Christian bookstore with such an extensive inventory.
Today both Christians and non-Christians alike are taking advantage of the convenience, discounted pricing, greater variety, and discrete environment of online shopping.
In a time when both Christians and non-Christians find the topics of contemporary Christian books and media to be relevant, interesting and helpful, contemporary Christian authors will be sought by a diverse audience. People looking for life changing resources will be shopping locations like Faith Life Bookstore Online (http://www.faithlifebookstore.com)
