I Love a Good Inventory Reduction Sale!

At some point I need to write an article about how to build a library on the cheap. When I do it will mention inventory reduction sales. Speaking of which…

Westminster Books is holding just such a sale right now. Since, like several good, Reformed online retailers they don’t really stock any bad books, everything listed there is good. But I noticed at least one that really stands out. Not too long ago I reviewed The Reformation: How a Monk and a Mallet Changed the World and said, “All-in-all, this book serves as a wonderful, popular-level introduction to the key persons and events involved in the Reformation, surely one of history’s most pivotal times. It makes for a great springboard to deeper appreciation and thus deeper study of both people and events. It is exactly the kind of book I would put in the hands of new Christians, or simply Christians who have no appreciation of the church’s history, so they can benefit from knowing and understanding the history of the church and thus the history of their faith. I wholeheartedly recommend it.” I actually just bought a copy of it for our church library, still believing that it is a superb resource to give people just enough church history to interest them in reading more and to help orient themselves in the grand stream of the long, storied history of the church. You can pick it up now for just $5.20–and it’s a deal at that.

If you didn’t pick up John Piper’s What Jesus Demands from the World during that big Desiring God sale a few months ago, you can get it here for $8.60.

You may also like to click on the “Best of WTS Sale” link. Several good commentaries are on sale there, probably the most notable of which are John Murray on Romans and D.A. Carson on John. Both are priced to sell!

So…

Go shopping!

    We Need Qualified Leadership

    A few days ago I happened upon the page of an especially mega-sized megachurch. The church is about to undergo a leadership transition from an older man to a younger one and a page on the site lays out the process through which this new pastor was chosen. I read with a morbid kind of…

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
