Belated Christmas "Gift" for A Bibliophile - Part 2

Apart from the order from Amazon that arrived after I stepped into office after my 2-week vacation, my order from CBD also arrived.

Occasionally, CBD offers really good bargains for academic books. I decided to splurge and bought myself a Christmas gift...and I managed to order the following books for less than US$60.00. With the weakening of the Greenback against Ringgit, this is indeed a real bargain!

Well, I am a happy man for the next few weeks! Look forward to interacting with these excellent books.

Gerd Luedemann. The Resurrection of Jesus: History, Experience, Theology. Minneapolis: Fortress, 1994.

Craig A. Carter. The Politics of The Cross: The Theology and Social Ethics of John Howard Yoder. Grand Rapids: Brazos, 2001.

Ephraim Radner. Hope Among Fragments: The Broken Church and Its Engagement of Scripture. Grand Rapids: Brazos, 2004.

I must say you are a rare person with such voracious appetite for such heavy books. I mean these are no bedside readings! Kudos to you.

Wow! all those books for USD60 ??? Wow Wow Wow...i m checking the store now...

blogpastor, it's his job..hahahaaha...i mean, he is after all a theologian right. They write books for one another to read. If he doesn't buy those books, who's gonna buy his books next time?

Hi Blogpastor,

Haha...They make good bedside readings because they put me to sleep almost immediately!

I was struggling to figure out what this CBD closeout was all about. I was sure it was not Central Business Distict (S'pore). Good old Google. Can always rely on it when you are stuck.

Kar Yong, thanks for your recommendation. But it came a bit late.:( Just bought over RM1300 worth of books the week before in anticipation of my bonus. If I buy some more my wife may force me to go for counseling or deliverance!

Kar Yong said...

Hi SP,

The only good thing about me is that at present I don't have a wife that would force me to go counseling or deliverance, at least not yet!

Hi Jack,

Check out CBD - they do have excellent offers on and off.

You mean there is actually a job that buys and reads books no one else would buy? Can recommend it to me? Would love that job!
