Used Books for Sale! Theology / Spirituality – 12 January 2022

Since before the ERB came into existence, one of our most stable sources of income has been selling used books. However, due to the pandemic and other factors, our used book sales have waned over the past year. We have an inventory of thousands of used books, many of them Christian theology and spirituality books, that we want to get into the hands of eager readers. And you, as readers of the ERB, are of course eager readers.

Help support the ERB by buying used books!

Your purchase helps us reduce ads on our website from ad brokers like Google and Infolinks, improving the site experience for all readers! Beginning 1 March 2021 we have started removing ad code from these brokers.

How it works: Each book below has a button where you can purchase it with Credit Card / PayPal. $2.99 S/H will be added for to each bookbut if you buy 3 or more books, we will refund the S/H fee for the 3rd book and any ones beyond that. We will try to remove books that have sold as quickly as possible, but will promptly issue a refund if more than one person tries to buy the same book. Books shipped to addresses in Indiana, will have 7% sales tax added to the total. You do NOT need to have a PayPal account to purchase a book, just use the gray Check Out button that says “Pay without a PayPal account” below it. Unless indicated, we only have one copy of each book. Prices and shipping are for US addresses only. Feel free to inquire about international shipping (or with other inquiries about these books): the.englewood.review [ at ] g m a i l . c o m

We plan to post a new list of used books every Wednesday, and the subscribers to our daily email list will have the first look at each new list. If you are interested in these sorts of used books, I encourage you to sign up for our daily email list.
