There was good news on the bookselling front this month: while in November we had to report the shuttering of the Cokebury chain’s bricks-and-mortar stores, this month came the news that another Christian chain, Berean, is expanding. And in the upcoming issue of Religion Update, our quarterly print supplement on the category, we focus on Christian fiction. While facing challenges as all of publishing does these days, that segment is still thriving, multiplying genres, and inspiring new imprints—all signs of vitality and eager readers.
