Recommended Materials for Church Bookstores
The following is a work in progress. I plan to add to it as I have opportunity, though I will not necessarily try to keep the contact information contained herein up to date. Phone numbers and web site addresses change frequently and we do not have the personnel to try to keep up with that type of thing.
A well-run Christian bookstore can be a powerful and important ministry, and I believe that it is nearly essential today that churches set up their own bookstores. Even if there is a Christian bookstore in the area, it is more than probable that it contains many books that are doctrinally unsound. Further, it probably sells “Christian” rock. I have often said that one of the most dangerous places today for a Bible-believing Christian is the average bookstore. (See “Dangers in Christian Bookstores,” http://www.wayoflife.org/fbns/dangers-in-christianbookstores.html).
The Lord Jesus Christ commissioned the churches with thoroughly discipling every member. He said to teach them “to observe ALL things whatsoever I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:20). That is part of the ministry of the Great Commission. Further, the churches are tasked with protecting the believers from false teachers.
What was true in the prophet Hosea’s day is true in our day. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). Too many members of Independent Baptist churches lack an effective and foundational knowledge of the Bible and are ill-equipped to deal with the slew of heresies that we are facing in these last days.
A well-run, well-stocked, well-promoted bookstore can go a long way toward correcting this problem.
1. An effective bookstore requires support from the church’s leaders and a strong commitment from the church. It should be supported financially to get it off the ground. The objective should not be to make money for the church’s coffers but to provide doctrinally sound material for the edification of the people and the salvation of souls. It is best if the church puts all of the profit back into the bookstore ministry so that the stock can grow and the number of titles increased.
2. It is important to appoint the right person to oversee the bookstore. At the very least a well-grounded preacher should be in charge of selecting the books. In too many cases the stocking of books is left up to a woman or someone who is not properly informed of the issues and who does not have the knowledge or spiritual discernment necessary to choose the right materials.
3. Keep the books well stocked. If the books are allowed to run out of stock it will discourage potential customers.
4. Keep the number of titles growing. A bookstore that has the same books on display month after month will not stir up the kind of enthusiasm that is necessary to make this ministry a success.
5. The bookstore needs to be advertised from the pulpit and by any other means available, such as a church paper. The people must be informed about what is available and reminded regularly. By this means the people will know what is available and will have that in mind when the need arises, such as when they are confronted by false doctrine.

Most of the titles deal with Reformed, Presbyterian, and Puritan theology and history, but some materials are Baptist.

-- The Sword publishes many helpful books. We do not recommend the booklet “Repentance” by Curtis Hutson, nor do we recommend any books by Jack Hyles.

WAY OF LIFE LITERATURE SHARING POLICY: Much of our material is available for free, such as the hundreds of articles at the Way of Life web site. Other items we sell to help fund our very expensive literature, video, and foreign church planting ministry. Way of Life’s content falls into two categories: sharable and non-sharable. Things that we encourage you to share include the audio sermons, video presentations, O Timothy magazine, and FBIS articles. You are free to make copies of these at your own expense and share them with friends and family. You are also welcome to use excerpts from the articles. All we ask is that you give proper credit. Things we do not want copied and distributed freely are items like the Fundamental Baptist Digital Library, print edition of our books, PDFs of the books, etc. These items have taken years to produce at enormous expense in time and money, and we need the income from the sale of these to help fund the ministry. We trust that your Christian honesty will preserve the integrity of this policy.
