Christian Store Day
Sat. Oct 23 from 9am-4pm
I am so excited to start planning this fabulous event that will take place at many of the Christian Bookstores nationwide! This ONE DAY EVENT will be filled with fun activities, LOTS of giveaways, and a chance to help the recovery effort in Haiti.
For even more coverage on this HUGE event:
Read below for just a couple of famous Christian Author's quotes on how they support their local Christian retailers...
"Local Christian bookstores play an essential role in the placing of Christian books into the hands of those who need them. While at one or another of our local stores, I have often seen how store owners and workers alike know their customers well enough that they can and do point them to the appropriate books to encourage their Christian walk. Those who work at Christian bookstores are not just booksellers’ they are ministers, as well. Thank you, each and every one of you, for being a continuing light of Christ in our communities!"
- Francine Rivers, author of Redeeming Love
"I’ll just come right out and say it; I love books, bookstores and bookstore owners! I grew up in a nonchristian home, then came to Christ as a high-schooler. I immediately started devouring Christian books, including The Calvary Road, In His Steps, The Cross and the Switchblade, Tortured for Christ, God’s Smuggler, and still my favorite, The Knowledge of the Holy. (My youth pastor gave me a key to his office and told me I could come in any time, and read any book I wanted. I spent hours there, but it wasn’t enough. There was an elderly Swiss couple in the church, Bill and Martha Kunz, who owned a Christian bookstore, which was their renovated garage. Several times each week I’d go through their shelves book by book, read chapters, and buy as many as I could afford. Thanks to that bookstore and those dear owners, I was introduced to and discipled by C. S. Lewis, A. W. Tozer, and Francis Schaeffer, among others. (My growth as a young Christian and my training for the ministry of writing is inseparably linked to books and bookstores. I’m profoundly indebted to those who sell Christian books, as well as those who publish them. I’ve made many friends among Christian booksellers. I have a special place for the people kind enough not only to get others’ books into my hands, but for the last 25 years to get my books into others’ hands. Thank you for doing what you do, which I know firsthand is investing in eternity."
- Randy Alcorn, Bestselling author of over 30 books, including The Treasure Principle, Heaven and Safely Home
"I'm a huge fan of the local Christian retailer and always have been. The people on the front lines are the ones really selling the books that change lives, and I'm eternally grateful."
- Jerry Jenkins, Best-selling author of the Left Behind Series
