What Foreshadowed Our Economic Crisis

December 26, 2008

Roger Babson, famed statistician, said, “Every economic depression is foreshadowed by a religious decline.” 

Great is the need for an authoritative voice to point the way out of our moral and spiritual confusion in America–a voice totally dedicated to God and his imperishable Word.

BCNN1/BlackCBC Bestsellers Lists

December 24, 2008
Black Christian News/BCBC National Bestsellers List

www.BlackCBC.com

The Top
50 Black Christian Bestsellers List (Non-fiction)

(Based
upon Amazon.com rankings, BarnesandNoble.com rankings, and BlackCBC.com
rankings.)

For
the Week of December 14, 2008
through December 20, 2008.

How we calculate the Black
Christian News/BCBC Bestsellers List:
Very simply, we
combine the rankings of Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and
BlackCBC.com for each book. Once we get the combined number, we rank
the books according to the lowest number.  We have found, down
through the years, if a book is truly a bestselling book, it will be a
bestselling book across the board, via online stores and in
brick-and-mortar stores. 


As
you know, making a major bestsellers list actually increases book
sales. So, Congratulations!

SPECIAL
NOTE:
All
of the books that we rank, which is a list of over 300 Christian books
written by African-Americans, with the exception of one, are on
Amazon.com. About 30 of the Christian books written by 
African-Americans are not on, or are not
ranked on
BarnesandNoble.com, indicating that it is not selling through
BarnesandNoble.com. In order to have a fair bestsellers list, we want
to encourage all authors and publishers to make sure their books are
sold through BarnesandNoble.com, as well as Amazon.com and BlackCBC.com.

 
If
you feel that your book is not being ranked with the over 300 books
that are ranked each week, please e-mail the title of your book, the
author’s name, and the ISBN number to blackcbc@blackchristianbookcompany.com.

(Non-fiction)
(Based
upon Amazon.com rankings, BarnesandNoble.com rankings, and BlackCBC.com
rankings.)

For the Week of December 14,
2008 through December 20, 2008.

Independent Publishers or Small
Publishers
are terms often used to describe publishers
with annual sales below a certain level. Commonly, in the United
States, this is set at $50 million, after returns and discounts.
Independent publishers or Small publishers are also defined as those
that publish an average of fewer than 10 titles per year, though there
are a few who manage to do more.

The terms “independent publisher” or “small publisher” are often used
interchangeably, with “independent press” defined as publishers that
are not part of large conglomerates or multinational corporations.
Defined this way, these presses make up approximately half of the
market share of the book publishing industry.  Many small
presses rely on specialization in genre: fiction, poetry, or
limited-edition books or magazines, but there are also thousands that
focus on niche non-fiction markets.

 
As
you know, making a major bestsellers list actually increases book
sales. So, Congratulations!

 
If
you feel that your book is not being ranked with the over 300 books
that are ranked each week, please e-mail the title of your book, the
