Hurry to a Lifeway near you

I have previously mentioned the wonderful Literary Study Bible that Scott gave me for our anniversary. I love my bible, mainly because of the word at the beginning of the title--Literary. The notes in my bible approach bible reading from a literary point of view.

When I began researching the ESV bible back before I purchased mine, I started to hear talk of the ESV Study Bible (minus the literary), and I only heard rave reviews about it. For example, here is what John Piper has to say,

“The ESV is a dream come true for me. The rightful heir to a great line of historic translations, it provides the continuity and modern accuracy I longed for. Now the scope and theological faithfulness of the ESV Study Bible study notes is breathtaking. Oh how precious is the written Word of God.”

Well, folks, the Bible is now available for purchase. It has been for a few months, I think, and I was really hoping to get my hands on one, but, of course, there was no room in the budget. Until Friday that is, when I happened to stumble upon the deal of the year. For a few days, the ESV study Bible is on sale for 25.00!!!!!!!!!!!! at Lifeway Bookstores. You can get this price online as well. Today we purchased one for Scott "for Christmas." I really had to share this information because I would not have known it had I not happened to be browsing in a Lifeway on Friday. I never go in there. Ever. A God thing? I think so.

And Sara Groves fans, while you are in the store purchasing your 25.00 Bible, throw a 5.00 Sara Groves Christmas c.d. into the mix as well. You'll be glad you did. Over in our car, Ada and I are starting our Christmas celebrating a little early this year.

And to top it all off, I also found a Worship the King for Kids cd for 2.99. A c.d. of old hymns sung by children. For 2.99!!! I might be "browsing" through Lifeway more often after that trip.

To hear about more great deals head over to Money Saving Mom.

Laura Beth, I think I have that hymn cd! I bought it last year to have when Ellie and Luke were in the car - but it was when she was stuck on Holy Holy Holy and it became a problem, her wanting it played over and over again. I need to get it back out. I paid more than 2.99 for mine.

Speaking of freebies. If you go to Westminster bookstore where they are selling the ESV study bible, you can download all of Jonah from that study bible. I did that and printed it out. They might do that on amazon as well.

I salvaged my broken eggs.

Did you get the leather version or the hardcover? I am considering it for Adam's Cmas as well!

Ashley--we got the hardcover. We definitely preferred the leather, but the hardcover was the one on sale for 25.00. And Scott has a nice leather Bible, not worn out or anything, so we went with hardcover. We do love it, though. I have been using it for my bible study, instead of my own Literary One. I hate to be disloyal to mine, though:)
