About Christianbook.com: Christianbook, LLC, formerly known as Christian Book Distributors, is a Christian catalog and internet retailer. The company was started in 1978 by brothers Stephen and Ray Hendrickson, who were 19 and 14 years old at the time, in their parents’ home in Lynn, Massachusetts. Three years later, as Stephen graduated from college and Ray graduated from high school, the business moved into its first commercial facility in Peabody, Massachusetts. In 1984 the company built a 24,000-square-foot facility in the Centennial Industrial Park in Peabody. By 1996 CBD had completely outgrown the site and built a new facility across the street, where it remains today. The facility is now 300,000 square feet. CBD employs a staff of just over 500 while continuing to be a family affair — Ray Hendrickson is the President and CEO, in addition to his 81-year-old mom and 27-year-old son.
