Prayer of Jabez #1 on Best-Seller List

The fastest-selling book in the nation in mid-April was not a Stephen King, Grisham, or Patterson book, but a Christian book from a small independent publisher in central Oregon. Now with over 3.5 million copies sold in the first year, The Prayer of Jabez, by Bruce Wilkinson, hit the number one spot on the New York Times hardback, nonfiction "Advice" best-seller list Easter Sunday. In the 4,500 Christian bookstores nation-wide, Jabez was outselling the number 2 book by as much as 10 to 1. One chain reported selling 230,000 copies in March alone.
