The Sale is Back!

Last Year I promoted a sale on my favorite storybook Bible, The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones here on my blog, and your response was outstanding. Well, I have great news! The sale is back! Yes, my friends, July 19th-26th (one might think it's in honor of my birthday) we are offering 50% off this great Bible (making the price $8.49). I know I gave away all the copies I bought last year, so I'm glad to stock up again this year!

I don't want to just rewrite my review of the book, but if this book is new to you, please read my post from last year. I don't know of any other storybook Bible that does such an excellent job of pointing to Christ through all the stories. It truly is Christ-centered.


“This is heady theology, often missed in adult preaching and teaching, but full realized in an age appropriate and attractive form that will delight children and often (at least for me) leave the grown up reader in tears... " (from Timothy Keller's review)

I can't think of a better way to spend $8.50. This would make a terrific baby gift for new parents, Christmas gifts for all your nieces and nephews, or even a great read for yourself (Tim Keller says every Christian from pew-warmer to Seminary Student should read it).

You can call me at work if you'd like to place an order -- we have tons on hand for the big sale -- (5o2 897 forty-fiveo6), or leave me a comment on this blog, or send me an e-mail. For the friends I know personally, (or sisters through the blogosphere) I'm happy to send them Media mail nice and cheaply. Our store usually does UPS in order guarantee fast delivery, but I'll handle your shipping whichever way you like.

The sale only lasts for that one week, so get me your order ASAP. I can't start shipping until the 21st, but I can put them aside for you before then. Hope to hear from you soon!

Hey, Gret! Can I get two?? I have two friends in mind that I'd love to get a copy for.

Thanks so much, and just let me know when they'll be ready to pick up!

GloryandGrace said...

Actually can you make it THREE instead of two?? (I just remembered another friend.) THANKS!!!

JoelandRachel said...

Please set one aside for me! Thanks!

Lisa (Morning Rose) said...

Please reserve four for me. Our boys enjoyed this book and it would make a great gift. Thanks!

Gretchen said...

Sure, guys, I'll put those aside for you today!

Gret, I would like 4. Maybe I can get them on the 26th?

Gretchen said...

Jill,

I'd be happy to bring them to you. Would you like to give me a check at that time, or call me with your CC#?

jillybean said...

i can do which ever is most convenient for you. if it is easier to go ahead and have it paid for, i can give you the cc#.

Gretchen said...

Yeah, that'd be easiest, I guess. Shall I call you next week?

Brenna said...

Gret, I'd like one for Gracie. Can I send you a check?

Gretchen said...

Brenna,

Sure. I'll let you know your total with shipping. E-mail me your address and I'll do the same. My e-mail is

Is it okay if the earliest I can get to the bookstore is this Friday? And is it open until 5pm?

Gretchen said...

Grace,

actually, the sale doesn't start until this Saturday. It runs from the 19th - the 26th. No problem, I will hold those for you until you can make it.

Johanna said...

Gretchen, could you get me two please? I can call with a CC# if you want. Let me know.
If you don't mind holding them until you come or Emily goes back and forth between school that would great but if you'd rather mail the books to get them out of your way that's fine too. Thanks!

Gretchen said...

Sure, Miss Johannis!
