About the Author
Sam Moore is the former CEO of the largest Bible and inspirational book publishing enterprise, Thomas Nelson, Inc.
Moore's career was launched when he formed his own company, Royal Publishing, to market Bibles and other books in 1962 and became a public company. Achieving a steady growth rate in the publishing business from its beginning, Moore's firm acquired, in 1969, Thomas Nelson-a Scottish company established in 1798 but then headquartered in New York City and Camden. In 1972, the corporate headquarters was consolidated in Nashville, Tennessee, and the company's name changed to Thomas Nelson. The company grew at 20 percent in both revenues and earnings during the 1970s and 1980s, resulting in Nelson becoming the world's largest Bible and Christian book publisher in the world.
