I researched, and then saved up for several months to buy myself this Bible for my birthday. It's a great resource; and very beautiful.
........shoulda waited I guess......... :-)

Not a bad way to go for a gift. It's an incredible deal; it really is.

Gunny,

You've created a terrible dilemma for me. I've been wanting a black leather ESV Bible for some time, but since I already have a dozen Bibles, including a hard cover ESV, I've decided that I shouldn't give in to my coveting. I certainly don't need to drop $42 on another Bible.

However, I would use the Bible for ministry, and I like a good deal. But, the thought of low-balling a Christian ministry just to get a good deal on something I want but don't need doesn't seem right.

Thanks for ruining my afternoon. :)

Well, the day ain't over yet, Matt.

;-)

I already have one, so I anticipate mine will be a gift, a nice way to spread the love and give someone a really nice Bible they'll more likely use.

Like many of us churches that give away Bibles, I wouldn't be surprised if they have a special dispensation in their own ministry when it comes to Bibles.

I'm going to get one and give it as a gift. I don't think of this as "low balling"... they are making the offer. They can probably afford it. Just make sure you put them in your will.. ;-)

Eric,

Ann, that is too cool! You'll have to by little J.C. a copy of John Calvin's Institutes for his birthday some year.

*sigh* I was out of town and away from my computer yesterday! 8(

I appreciate you making us all aware of this excellent free offer though!

Sam, you picked the wrong day to avoid the computer!

There's a daily special each day this week, and today's special isn't bad either.

It's Joel Beeke's Living for God's Glory: An Introduction to Calvinism. It's a big, thick hardback, but I've already got it. It's also in the "for any donation" category, however. This one can be ordered online.

I can't wait for my Bible to arrive. Any ideas when it will arrive? (I already got my receipt in the mail, now just waiting for the Bible)

Victoria, I got mine in the mail TODAY! Whoop!
