Thinking Ahead to May

I can't forget that May is fast approaching... Matt keeps reminding me... could be something to do with the fact that it's his birthday on the 4th... he'll be FIVE! Wow, don't the years fly by! We have been planning our May promotion for a while, and building up stocks of the one most important book in our shop - the Bible. Yes, May is to be our Bibles month. 20% off all TBS Bibles, and 10% off all the other publisher's Bibles - KJV only. With the huge number of different Bible translations out there, we are not ashamed to wholeheartedly promote the KJV as the most reliable translation. In fact, in my 'surfing' this evening, I came across this very interesting blog - someone else who also feels there is too much choice of versions and styles out there...
'...here in the English speaking world we not only have so many different translations that we now need other books to help us choose between them, but we seem to have either another translation or another super-duper hip-hop trendy hot-water-bottle-wrapped must-have fashion accessory edition published every week.'

Thanks for your comment and the link, Lorna, and the heads-up (and do chase STL for that credit they promised you: every penny counts!).

Can't say that I'm a big fan of the KJV myself, but we certainly don't need the ridiculous range of Bibles publishers are throwing at us nowadays.

Hope your Bible Month goes well. Every blessing,

Phil
