Sales of religious paperback books represent a significant market share in today’s publishing arena. The new gospel on book sales has spiritual and religious titles crossing over into mainstream bookstores and taking upwards of 7 percent of all book sales. The Purpose Driven Life, for instance, has sold over 22 million copies. And this is not a New York phenomenon: the publishers, agents, and authors are primarily a whole different group than the Big Apple players.
