On Christian Book Stores: Sad but True

Lost in wonder, love, and grace shares a personal account of his Christmas time experience at the Christian book stores. I was recently shown a "Christian" book that was complete with various vulgarities and cursing. Find and cherish the good stuff and thank God for it.

Amen, brother, Amen!! I have even heard of a Christian school using a book for their reading project which has subjects that I will not mention in them(I didnt read the book but let me just say I was shocked that they would even consider it, for me its a no brainer..if it has this stuff the answer is no)...our previous Pastor called them to task and they just said 'its a good literary work' and didnt throw the book out. Why not use the Bible instead!! Thanks for the reminder bro, great post :-)

Hi! This post is very similarto the one I left onthe author's site. I too was just at the Treasure house in Barrie, yesterday actually. While there I got a new study bible and my brother got me a wicked awesome cd for Christmas. I have to say that I do agree with some of the things that were said by the other blogger..and I do kinda have a slight problem with the commercialization of christianity - though at the same time things like WWJD? bracelets have started many many conversations with non-christians in which I was able to share my faith, simply because they asked me about my bracelet or what it meant. I have to say that though these book stores aren't perfect,they are much better than having nothing. They are a place where I can at the very least find clean music and insightful reading. merry Christmas

You rock Jess. I also wear a similar braclet that has also started conversations. You are right, it is never a good idea to completely write some place off. Keep up the good work of searching the book stores for those Jems. I would still love to see more Piper and Carson in their quarterly flyers. Oh well. Thanks for the optimism.

Keep fighting the Good fight.
