A La Carte (6/3)

Earlier this week you voted for the product you wanted to have on sale for $5. You chose R.C. Sproul’s DVD series What Is Reformed Theology? And now, for only 24 hours, it’s at Ligonier for $5 (down from the usual price of $48). There are some other great books and DVDs there for the same price, so you may want to stock up. Go to $5 Fridays. There’s more. If you click that link you should also receive 10% off on your purchase. If you don’t see that reflected, use the coupon code “CHALLIES10” and you should get 10% off.
