Originally launching in 1995, JCountryman set the standard within the gift book industry by placing the stamp of exceptional quality and innovative design to each and every one of its journals, devotionals and promise books. Now, fifteen years later, the reputation and legacy continues as the growing progress with Thomas Nelson’s new prestige line of products JCountryman is seen throughout the retailing industry.

One national Christian retailer has reported nearly a 100% unit sales increase in stores with the floor display versus similar stores without. IndependentChristian retail stores report inventory turns for titles on the display are up to 4.5 times greater than sales on the same titles in stores without a display.

"Of our three stores, I can see a definite improvement in sales of these gift books at our location with the spinner than at the two without it”, said Miranda Epperson at Cedar Springs Christian Store in Knoxville, TN.

Building upon the trusted legacy of JCountryman, a new line of devotionals, journals and promise books began hitting stores everywhere in September 2010. Featuring products from best-selling authors such as John Maxwell, Sheila Walsh, Beth Moore, Dr. Richard Lee and Sarah Young, J Countryman promises to deliver new life changing content to inspire the world.

“We are delighted that Thomas Nelson has chosen to bring the JCountryman Brand back into the marketplace. Over the years, we have enjoyed developing beautiful gift books with great content that have touched lives and changed them for His glory. We are confident that the same will be true as we continue to publish meaningful promise books, devotionals and journals that will enrich and encourage the reader,” states JCountryman founder, Jack Countryman.

With a remarkable history and reputation within the industry, JCountryman titles have reached an unprecedented mark of over $300 million in sales. Titles such as the best-selling devotional by Sarah Young, Jesus Calling have sold over 1 million copies. Embraced and loved by those who incorporate the message into their hearts and lives, JCountryman titles are the trusted “go-to” for everyday seekers and celebrities alike.

Upcoming releases on the spinner out March 1st such as In God We Still Trust Devotional, by Dr. Richard Lee, A Leader’s Heart by John Maxwell and “Jesus Lives Devotional” by Sarah Young will deliver the same moving and profound content consumers have come to rely on with JCountryman products.
