Greetings, and thank you for taking the time to review the new fall titles from Kregel Publications, Lion and Lion Children’s, Candle Books, and Monarch. It is no secret that publishing and retailing have undergone seismic shifts in recent years. Yet our mission and message remain steadfast, offering light and stability to a world increasingly devoid of both. Kregel, Inc. is, and always has been, a family-owned business, which allows us to follow this mission with independence and dedication. As both publisher and retailer, Kregel, Inc. certainly understands the almost daily challenges in what it means to be producer and supplier of quality Christian products intended to introduce people to the redeeming love of God and equip them to mature in their relationship with Christ. We thank you for your own dedication to our common mission. Founded first as a Christian bookseller in 1909, we deeply value our partnership with retailers like you as we work together to weather the ebb and flow of business realities while remaining true to our vision to develop and distribute trusted, biblically based resources that lead individuals to know and serve Jesus Christ. Please let me know anytime how we can further deepen that partnership with you. Blessings, N. David Hill Executive Director of Sales and Marketing
