Thomas Nelson, religious publisher, to be purchased by HarperCollins
NEW YORK (AP) - A week after taking over a longtime publisher of
Hollywood scripts, HarperCollins Publishers has announced plans to
acquire a top producer of Christian works.
HarperCollins announced Monday that it had "entered into a
definitive agreement" with Thomas Nelson Inc., a 200-year-old
publisher currently based in Nashville.
Thomas Nelson has released numerous editions of the Bible and
published the current top seller "Heaven is for Real," by Todd
Harper, part of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., already runs
another leading religious publisher, Zondervan.
Last week, Harper announced it had purchased much of the catalog
of Newmarket Press, which has released the scripts of "The King's
Speech," ''Juno" and many other films in book form.
