Weekend Wonderings: Books

Much to my surprise and delight, there is a book publisher out there who shares my views on the content of the vast majority of “Christian” book stores. From Sprinkle Publications:

A visit to most “Christian Book Stores” reveals the vast wasteland of “fluff” currently available in the theological section and “reinvented” history in the historical section. (emphasis added)

Who knew? A book seller with discernment.

The only thing I would add to that is after the word “theological” I would include “and Christian Living.” The theology and Christian living sections of pretty much every Christian bookstore is so terrible that toilet paper would refuse to be touched by it.

The moral of this random rant? We as a church need to get back to reading good books that actually teach us how to live like Christians and books that actually teach us what doctrines the Bible contains.

To that end, I have included a Books page that will be dedicated primarily to places where you (and I) can find good Christian books, hopefully at a discount. I include Christian Book Distributors and Amazon.com by default, since they provide regular specials on said good books despite the “vast wasteland of fluff” they contain.

Enjoy a good book soon, and I hope you will join me and many others in taking up the Puritan-a-Month Challenge for 2008!
