So when I see a bin of books for sell even in a non-bookstore, I usually can't help but at least see what they are selling. Even if it's the bargain bin at Kroger, where one might find random Christian devotional books and Joel Osteen over-runs.
But I've been surprised before: I found a book that my Personal Spiritual Disciplines professor had recommended, plus an old John Maxwell book that I really enjoyed (for $4.99!)
Yesterday Ashlee and I had lunch with our friends Jason and Lindsey, and we stopped at Kroger to pick up dessert on the way there. There, in the frozen foods aisle, I was drawn to the bargain book bin. I was taken aback at what I found:
- Brian McLaren's Secret Message of Jesus
- John Piper's Passion of Jesus Christ
- CJ Mahaney's Humility: True Greatness
- Josh Harris' Stop Dating the Church!
- Andy Stanley's Visioneering
- ... and more... for $4.99 each.
Good by Lifeway / Southern Seminary Bookstore, hello grocery store.
Hopefully the non-Kroger branded stores that Kroger owns up North carries the same quality selection so that you Yankees can participate.
Speaking of Yankees, did you know that Ted Nugent might be playing on the new David Crowder Band album? :-O
