Ever since I was in seminary, I not only frequented the Dallas Seminary Bookstore, I made online orders to Westminster Bookstore in Philadelphia. Once I started posting about books more frequently, I entered their referral program and thanks to your clicks have gotten many gift certificates through the years.
Recently, they sent an e-mail to their partners about their financial situation (you can read more details here). The key ways you can help, if you’re so inclined, is to:
- Pray for them
- Order some great books (see below)
- Donate your change at checkout
- Spread the word about their ministry (watch the video below)
As for the books I mentioned, they have a list of great Christmas ideas. For a general list, click here, but they also have great Bible deals, books for children/teens, books for men, books for women, and obviously, books for pastors/theologians.
A few items of note in those are:
- ESV Reader’s Bible Six Volume Set (remember my review?) for $100
- Geerhardus Vos’ Reformed Dogmatics complete set for under $140
- The Collected Writings of John Murray for under $140
- The Marrow of Modern Divinity for $20 (probably grabbing this myself)
- Bavinck’s Reformed Dogmatics for $140
Obviously I gravitated toward a certain list but you get the idea. Their overall prices are competitve with other online retailers, but you’re helping a ministry sustain itself in this case. If you’re planning to purchase some books for friends and loved ones this Christmas, consider doing so through Westminster Bookstore
