HarperCollins Creates New Christian Publishing Division

HarperCollins Publishers revealed its new Christian publishing division today, combining Zondervan and Thomas Nelson into a single division.

Thomas Nelson CEO Mark Schoenwald will lead the new division and Zondervan CEO Scott Macdonald will step down.

Here’s more from the release: “Schoenwald will remain based in Nashville, Tenn., and will spend part of his time in Grand Rapids, Mich., where Zondervan will continue to operate from its current location. The two companies have different, though complementary, missions and both will continue to acquire and publish books specific to those missions, competing as they have in the past, but collaborating where appropriate.”

HarperCollins closed its purchase of Christian publisher Thomas Nelson earlier this month. The sale was first announced last October.
