  Each June is typically the time when his books sell the best since it is graduation month. Add to that the #1 book, "Time With God For Mothers" and you have nine of the current top 25.

   All have one thing in common. All by Jack Countryman...obviously causing quite a shake up on this month's list. But a similar thing happens every year about this time as a new crop of graduation themed books are released by Countryman.

  And the Christian publishing business certainly knows all about him. The publishing veteran has been hitting a few industry milestones in recent weeks.  After surpassing the 20 million-unit mark this past December as author of the God's Promises brand, Countryman continues to gain recognition for his impact on the publishing industry. 

  At the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association's (ECPA) Executive Leadership Summit in Colorado Springs on April 29 Countryman was given the Jordon Lifetime Achievement Award.

    Countryman was honored for his 30-year contribution to inspirational publishing. According to a press release from the ECPA, "The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association is pleased to honor Jack Countryman with the 2014 Charles 'Kip' Jordon Lifetime Achievement Award for his exceptional contributions to Christian publishing and in recognition of a continuing legacy impacting lives for Christ through leadership in publishing and establishing the respected J. Countryman gift book line of more than 100 inspirational books that touch hearts and change lives."

    Thirty years ago with the help of his wife, Marsha, Countryman wrote God's Promises at his kitchen table. Originally distributed from the trunk of their car, God's Promises and his follow-up book, God's Wisdom, quickly grew in sales. Countryman met with ministers and distributors  across the country, creating new books in the line that developed out of those original titles.

  In 1986, Jack trademarked the JCountryman brand, solidifying its place in the market and essentially creating the Christian gift books business.

   Countryman joined Thomas Nelson publishers in 1994 and in four years the JCountryman gift books line went from $2.5 million to $22 million in earnings.  By 2001, JCountryman was the largest personal gift book publisher in the world, with 26,000 outlets.

   Along with significant sales, 2018 also marked 35 years of the publisher's God's Promises brand.

   Now the publisher emeritus for Thomas Nelson's gift division, Countryman continues to work with authors and write several Christian bestsellers of his own, as you've seen with this month's charts.  God's Promises continues to be JCountryman's bestselling brand.

  "Our success has come because we continue to create beautiful gift books with great content that meet a felt need while being affordable," said Jack. "Our books touch and change the life of the reader, giving the reassurance that God has an answer for everything."

  Mark Schoenwald, president and CEO of HarperCollins Christian Publishing - parent organization to Thomas Nelson - commented, "Jack is an inspiration to all of us, one of the most inspiring members of our publishing family and a leader by example each day with his positive attitude and incredible work ethic. While his publishing accomplishments are many, he is an even better mentor and teacher to all of us. He is generous in sharing his knowledge and experience and is a tireless worker to apply his gifts he has been given to spread the Gospel and impact people's lives in a profound way.

    "The JCountryman book line is his legacy, and it's an honor to have Jack and Marsha with us every day," he said. "They have impacted over 20 million people through their books, and played an integral role in helping us accomplish our mission as a company."

   Countryman was recently given a salutation by the State of Tennessee's House of Representatives General Assembly.   In February 2014, he was presented with a proclamation that stated he was being recognized as, "one of those citizens who have worked with compassion and conviction to open the doors of spirituality for their fellow Christians through the printed word..."continuing to say that Countryman was, "a legend in the realm of Christian publishing..."

    "To receive such prestigious awards is both humbling and a great honor," said Countryman. "Touching lives and changing them for God's glory is our motto. It's why we do what we do with inspirational gift books."

    In 2013, sixteen Countryman books became CBA, Parable and Evangelical Christian Publishers Association best-sellers. Seven of his titles have sold more than a half-million units.

    In addition to his contributions to the publishing industry, Countryman is the founder of In His Grip Golf, a men's Christian sports outreach ministry with a vision to, "provide a first-class golf experience to improve your game on and off the course."  Churches all over the country use the In His Grip program to build relationships within the community to create a common ground to share the Gospel.
