Noticing that my stock of books is low in some areas, I took advantage of the sale of hymnals at CPH, today. Below, see all that I have left.
The Book of Concords were once a box of 10 on sale. The Large Catechisms were once a box of 20. There are still quite a few, but I was hoping we would use them with the study guide in church, (maybe this will happen, but excellent for individual and family study, too).
So, seeing that there are no hymnals left, I ordered ten of them, and noting that there are no "Through Faith Alone" devotion books, I ordered six (one of my favorite books, altogether), and seeing that there is only one Small Catechism with Explanations, I ordered six, also. With shipping, this is still an expensive order and will take at least four weeks to get here, maybe six. Alas, but we are unspeakably greatful for such excellent resources. Thank you CPH!
I would like some more Treasury's, too, but I will wait for when they are on sale, again. I have gone through about 15 of them. I also should get some of Gene Veith's books, next.
People ask me what I do with them. Besides enjoying them myself or with my husband, when appropriate, I sell them for what I paid for them. Most of the time, I give them as presents for occasions or no occasions, or for having had a conversation of spiritual nature with someone.
On a slightly different note, for our daily devotion, another picture I took this morning from my old German hymnal.
It says: "It is God's pleasure and honor, that he wants to give much."
He also gives us so much in these beautiful books, words and songs.
