Great deals on commentaries and other books

This is a crass commercial blog, Occupy Wall Street protesters who are surfing the net on expensive laptops while being served free, gourmet meals at their protest sites should immediately go elsewhere.

I almost rescinded my retirement when I looked at how much stuff I had in my church office, mainly books, and looked at the available space at my home. My wife told me to work it out anyway, so I’m selling most of my library. And, yeah, I'd love to be in a position to give them all away to some young theolog...but I'm not in such a position.

What I will do is sell these cheaper than you can find them on Amazon. Pick a book and price it on AZ. I'll be lower, probalby for a better graded book, and will not charge $3.99 per book shipping. I'll charge actual costs for shipping, usually about $2.50 per book. For quantity I'll bargain with you on price and pay shipping also. If you buy several, I'll toss in a free book and give you a list of free ones from which to choose. I've got to free up some shelf space brethren.

I'll take your check, too, trusting my SBC colleagues to not bounce checks all over the southeast. And I have hundreds more books. Inquire if you have a particular interest.

New American Commentary, Old Testament. These all have clean dust jackets and look new. I confess to not spending much time in the OT so these are hardly used. If I had not written my name inside the cover of these, I'd sell them on Amazon as new books.

Judges, Ruth; Daniel I. Block $15
Jeremiah, Lamentations; F. B. Huey, Jr. $11.50
Hosea, Joel; Duane A. Garrett $12
Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah; Barker & Bailey $16.50
Leviticus; Mark F. Rooker $11
Joshua; David M. Howard, Jr. $13

This list was from an earlier post. I've sold some of these. Email me at for a price. I'll make it attractive to you.

I'm a young man trying to put my own library together. I want to start leading Bible studies, and studying for myself. I stumbled across your page and noticed the Expositor’s Greek Testament, 5 volume set. I would be very interested in that even though I haven't taken Greek, I know I will one day.
I would also appreciate it if you could recommend some others for me as you already have read these and have experience as a Pastor. Thanks!

The EGT and some of the other greek text commentaries I have might be a bit heavy. The english text works might suit you better now. Many of them will touch on the greek.
