Discover the history of one of the most influential Christian publishers in the world

In 1870, a young man started a publishing company in a young city. Fleming H. Revell was just twenty-one when he set up shop on Madison Street in Chicago, partnering with his brother-in-law, Dwight L. Moody, already a well-known evangelist. From the stepping stone of publishing Moody's sermons, Revell launched into decades of collaboration, first in Chicago and then in New York City, with authors such as R. A. Torrey, Charles H. Spurgeon, Hannah Whitall Smith, William Jennings Bryan, Catherine Marshall, David Wilkerson, Corrie ten Boom, Charles Colson, and Helen Steiner Rice.

So how did this East Coast publishing powerhouse end up as a division of a family-owned, independent publisher in humble West Michigan? Who were the owners, authors, and employees who carried the torch into the twenty-first century?

This is the story of a passion for the power of the printed word. A story of rises and falls, triumphs and trials, missteps and miracles. Discover how, through 150 tumultuous years of history, the Revell legacy has been handed down through a series of diligent people dedicated to the work of offering hope and help to readers everywhere.
