Just a quick note to my friends and readers in the United Kingdom or the European Union. Since we are moving back to the United States within the next 90 days, I have decided to liquidate most of the booksâ€”nearly 1,000 volumesâ€”in my ministry library. Some are already listed in my Amazon Marketplace Storefront (2manygoodbooks) and I hope to get hundreds more listed by the weekend.
I would characterize this library as conservative and evangelical, with most commentators and theologians writing from a Reformed perspective. I am disposing of all my language helps, dictionaries, concordances, commentaries, apologetics, biographies, church history, and theology; however, I am keeping some of the more contemporary stuff in the areas of missions, evangelism, church planting, and devotional.
Why am I selling my library? Well, it’s a great way to lighten the load and contribute to the cost of shipping our personal belongings via sea freight. And I use Logos Bible Software for Mac for most of my serious research, with over 300 reference works on my computer system now.
A couple of caveats:
- If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact me through the comment section (it sends an e-mail directly to my inbox) and let me know. The prices you see on Amazon are relatively firm, but it’s always nice to see what you’re buying in advance, plus I can sell direct and de-list the item from Amazon’s inventory, saving you the cost of shipping (Â£2.75 per book).
- Those who might be interested in purchasing multiple volumes should also get in touch as soon as possible. I would be happy to combine the shipping or allow you to collect the books personally, thus saving a lot of money (perhaps 20% versus ordering single volumes from Amazon).
- Are you looking to buy the entire library? At the moment, I don’t have an estimated total for the titles that are being sold, but please let me know if that’s what you’re thinking. I would love to see the whole library go to one person, but within hours of posting the first 50 books on Amazon, I have begun receiving orders.
- Books that remain unsold will be donated to the Wales Evangelical School of Theology library in Bridgend, a great theological college not far from us.
Due to the cost and the complexity of shipping books to North America, I have decided to limit these books to the UK and Europe.
