 Rubbish Books in the Christian Bookshop

I went to the christian bookshop I was trying
to find something that would encourage me I could not find a single book. I found one book by andrew murray, where have all the good christian books gone and music?
If a new christian walked in there and new nothing what would he pick up, it is not that I dont like my christian bookshop, I was trying to find something to build my self up.

Dom

To tell you the truth brother we are privileged to be able to even buy books and have them in our libraries, we have so many books that we can access on the internet and print off our printers. I would highly recommend you read this online book, its a classic and very encouraging:

Dear Dominic,
Reverend Barnabas J. Alexander is a pastor in Hounslow, suburb of London and I am sure he can recommend to you books that are sound and enjoyable in the Christian faith. If you care to have his e-mail address, you can e-mail me privately at:
claudiusm59@gmail.com
I am Claude Martineau, a Christian from Quebec,Canada and I salute you in God's Grace.

 Re:

Aw, I forgot to tell you Dom, that 6 years ago, I called all my friends and told them to get out and buy as many Classic books as they could because I had the feeling they'd become scarce there.

Anyhow, since then, we can't even order some at the big Lifeway chain, so my husband goes over to Books-a-million and orders what ever he wants.
Too bad huh ?

Well, just now I did a search on Christian Classic Bookstore and this site by Gary Zeolla came up, who translated the Analytical Literal Translation of the N.T. (which don't tell anyone, but I like it - it's in e-sword :)
And anyways, he had this link [url=http://www.dtl.org/products/booksamillion/books/spirituality.htm]Classic Books[/url]


This [url=http://www.whitakerhouse.com/DeskTop.aspx?page=ProductList&bs=10015&image=TitleClassicsBestSeller#ProductList1:_ctl0:Datagrid1:_ctl14:_ctl1]Whitaker House Publishers[/url] used to carry tons of classics, but I'd have to call them again, because they said years ago to go to Anchor but I can't find Anchor anymore.

 Re:

I just listened to Ravenhill's and Orr's recommendations from their sermons, give them to my wife before birthdays or Christmas, and she orders them used off the net.

Gurnall's tome will keep you busy for over a year with your regular Bible reading.

I have about 10 or 15 jewels that will take me the next two or three years to really digest (Nee, Bunyon, Spurgeon, Comfort, Murray, Rice, Bounds).

There are plenty out there used for cheap.

Places to buy new:

Reformed:

http://www.monergismbooks.com/index.html

Don't know about this company, but if you know the titles, they've got books (Foxe's, Tozer, Spurgeon):

http://www.christianbook.com/

Moody Publishers:

http://www.moodypublishers.com/Publishers/default.asp

Sword of the Lord, Independent Fundamental Baptist(have some very cheap prices when they run sales):

 Re:

Try finding any books on evangelism in a typical Christian book store. I went to one a few weeks ago and there wasn't even a section on evangelism. Nada, zip! ZERO. But the self help and prophecy section was very large!

Good stuff! I cherish my copy of [i]A Christian in Complete Armour[/i] by William Gurnall! It is definitely one of the most life-changing books that I have in my library. Both [i]Pilgrim's Progress[/i] and [i]Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners[/i] by John Bunyan are wonderful too. I would also recommend [i]The Autobiography of Charles Finney[/i], [i]No Compromise: The Autobiography of Keith Green[/i], [i]The Cross and the Switchblade[/i] by David Wilkerson, and any book by Leonard Ravenhill, T. Austin Sparks, A. W. Tozer, and Samuel Chadwick. These books were each life-altering for me.
