Baker Books signs David Green, CEO and founder of Hobby Lobby

Ada, Mich. — Baker Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group, has acquired a leadership book from David Green, CEO and Founder of Hobby Lobby. Green’s book will take an inside look at the values and principles used to build Hobby Lobby.

Everything about Green’s life has been nontraditional. In high school, Green opted to leave the classroom and earn his credits working retail in the 1950s. He never attended college. He never read a business book. Yet Green has become one of the most influential Christian leaders today.

“David Green is an unconventional visionary and a true original,” says Brian Vos, Executive Editor at Baker Books. “As the legendary founder of Hobby Lobby and a philanthropist, David’s faith has led him to break the mold of modern business assumptions time and again. His new book will provide a fascinating inside look—mistakes and all—at the counterintuitive yet highly effective principles he’s used to drive incredible results in business and life.”

In his upcoming leadership book, Green shows readers the life-changing benefits of submitting yourself and your work to God. Green puts forth the seldom-discussed notion that a truly successful company requires faith put into action.

Bill High will co-author the book with Green. Green is represented by Tom Dean, founder of A Drop of Ink.
