Most of these are on the internet and thus you may research them and save them as links. Most sell at least some Reformed resources at a fairly good price (some better than others <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />).

OOOooops. I made a mistake on my survey.

For some reason I read Sovereign Grace Publishers as Soli Deo Gloria Publishers. (I guess I was looking for that one). So subtract one from that column, Joe.

Also, one publisher I order from fairly often is Banner of Truth. And I almost never order directly from Amazon; I look for used books offered on Amazon.

Well I did not include every bookstore to be sure (I thought 21 would be enough, but of course people can always add a link below), but Banner of Truth and Soli Deo Gloria are also both publishers and thus were not included because most of these other bookstores sell them. Banner of Truth books are very inexpensive normally at CVBBS, CBD & WTS bookstore (normally less than BT itself. At WTS you get $5 shipping no matter if you are ordering 1000 books, or a few less <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> increasing your savings even further). Many of the Soli Deo Gloria books come to me free and thus I am not sure where to find them for less lately, but CVBBS rings a bell here.

I must admit I rarely shop at Amazon myself, but some of the hard to find things I sometimes find there. I especially find Amazon.uk helpful as they handle some items from the Church of England (I recently purchased an older version of their Book of Common Prayer from them). I suspect many who live outside of the US may purchase from them. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/shrug.gif" alt="" />

CHECK "My Local/Internet Independent Retailer." Since you work for Grace to You that is local as it gets <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> I did not name ALL the stores, thus I have some catch all categories.

The only thing I have in that category (books laying around--duplicates) at this time are 3 P&R titles:

Resurrection and Redemption, by Richard Gaffin--GONE

Worship in Spirit and Truth, by John Frame--GONE

The Five Points of Calvinism, by David Steele, Curtis Thomas, and S. Lance Quinn

These are new books. I have ONLY one (1) of each title. In lieu of giving them to individuals at the seminary, I will make them available to the next three (3) posters who desire them. One book per poster please. First come, first serve. Please post what book you desire (directly under this post) and then I will send you a PM later requesting your complete mailing address. Please do not post your address on-line here as you maybe added to someone's junk mail list. If you desire to pay shipping please make a donation (after you receive the book) to The Highway instead.

Would that be paper or plastic? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/puke.gif" alt="" />

Frame's two books on worship are probably the best written from what is IMHO a moderate position on worship.

The Worship Wars have caused me to delve into this topic more deeply and I'm killing a bunch of trees (i.e. books) in the process. It pays to be well read in this area. Here are a few other books some may consider reading (these are not being given away):

Immanuel in Our Place, by Tremper Longman--forward by Sinclair Ferguson.

Liturgies of the Western Church, by Bard Thompson.

For All God's Worth, by N.T. Wright (yes, its worth reading).

Introduction to Christian Worship, by James White.

With Reverence and Awe, by D.G. Hart and John Muether (a must read).

Give Praise to God, edited by Philip Ryken--forward by RC Sproul.

The Sacrifice of Praise, by Dr. H. Bavinck--mine is a 1922 copy and is hard to find, but well worth reading. (thin blue Kregal HB, app 115 pages).

Exploring the Worship Spectrum--6 views, general editor Paul Basden

Covenantal Worship, Reconsidering the Puritan Regulative Worship, by R.J. Gore.

Documents of Christian Worship, by James White.

Worship, Reformed According to Scripture, by Hughes Oliphant Old (a must read).

A Better Way, by Michael Horton.

Thanks for the list of suggested reading, Joe. As you know, I have been(and continue to be) delving into this area as well. I have read a few of the selections on your list, but most I have never heard of! (I copied the list for future reference) Can you direct me to the one or two "must reads" on the list?

Blessings,
Kim

I primarily buy books from The Discerning Reader. One resource that wasn't listed (that I've used often) is the Presbyterian Church in America Christian Education and Publications http://www.pcacep.org/

Also, here are three great links for finding the lowest priced books online:

CUMBERLAND VALLEY BIBLE BOOK STORE IS CRAZY CHEAP.

It's unbelievable what you can get there. I got Calvin's commentaries for a hundred bucks, and 150 of Spurgeon's sermons in SO NICE hardbound covers and everything for like twenty! It's insane! If I didn't know better, I'd think that they'd be in the diamond stealing buisness with a bible bookstore front! And the people are so nice as well.

I suppose being RIGHT NEXT to the Banner of Truth publishing house helps, but still, it's so crazy cheap there.

And no, I am definitely not a worker there, or the family member of anyone that does -- I am just very impressed with the service, quality, and prices of that book store.

My favourite Christian bookstores are not mentioned on the list:
http://www.banneroftruth.org/pages/home.php
http://www.tabernaclebookshop.org/

but I also quite often order via amazon.com (especially when buying books in America) because the postage is quite low (I live in Europe)

The Reformed Free Publishing Association is good if you like to read someone whos not dead or a least lived in the 1900s.<img src="/forum/images/graemlins/rofl.gif" alt="" /> The gospel mission in Montana is by far the cheapest although I cant recommend all their authors.

Just for those who may not be aware..... the "Reformed Free Publishing Association" is part of the Protestant Reformed Church. Thus one must be prudent when selecting their publications. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
