For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Bookstore blowout

3 days ago we learn that the christian bookstore in our city was closing down and offering 40-60% off their shelvess. Guess what we did as a family? We all took a trip there. Dangerous proposition giving our family love for books. That bookstore was not one of our favorites given their rather liberal selection (good, deep, and theologically sound books are overrated these days and rare!), and on top of that, their rather high prices (I prefer to shop at CBD even if it means paying shipping fees, it still comes cheaper for us). Nonetheless, who passes out on such a sales, you never know what you can stumble upon. We did manage to find some, especially for the kids.
Here is what we got:

For me:
Creating an Intimate Marriage by Jim Burns (started already and loving it!)
Communication Key to your Marriage by Norman Wright
How to talk so kids can learn by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish
The culture-wise family by Ted baehr and Pat Boone
