Eerdmans Sale is On






The seminary BookServices is now taking orders for books published by Eerdmans at a special discounted price for STM students only. This is an excellent once-a-year opportunity to build up one's library at affordable prices. There are some pretty good books that have just been released or due to be released soon. Don't miss it!

I remember the excit4ment I felt at my first MBS organized Eerdmans sale.

I also remember how I was broke for months after that :-) and how I kicked myself for wasting precious money buying books that were not right for me. :-( Arrghhh!! *stupid! stupid! stupid!*

Paul,
Don't chide yourself so. While you may think that the books are not right for you, in time they will find you :)
I read this article back in 2003 and I still remember it. I have recently located it and saved the artilce -- here, for you if it helps.

KY,
I might give it a miss this time -- I have only picked out 4 books but not sure if I wanted them anyway. Because I am quite broke.
So the deadline is today?

Pearlie

Thanks for the link. Interesting article. Quite encouraging though I do wonder if I am truly a book lover - nowadays I would rather pick up a comic book if I have to choose :-)

Paul,
You are welcome and I get what you mean :) sometimes I just want to be a potato couch and watch TV, and end up regretting it usually.

Hi sir, surprise to find that , your blog got no political talk at all??>>>

haha.

I thot, theologian must talk politics, to justify that he is biblical enough?

because Jesus, Paul, used political words, and OT prophets highly political motivated contentions....

" above said by some theologians", not me..haha!

Hi Paul and Pearlie,

Well, I still read books that I bought 5-6 years ago - and it's been a great help in preparing for my classes! So you never know when a book will come in useful.

Hi Davinci,
I discuss some political issues - but not as frequently as The Reb.

Please see my posts on the Political Jesus and others here:

My SBL International Paper this year will also be a political reading, if I do get to go for the meeting.
