It has been a very busy time ordering books for the 2nd semester and processing large incoming shipments. In all this busyness I ordered 40 X 1&2 Thessalonians by Richard Mayhue. I can’t find any backorder related to this, so I suspect this is a typo – 40 instead of 4 copies! If no-one claims this order, we will offer a special discount to those who wish to buy this for a group study: if you order more than 10 copies, you can have these at R80 each instead of R95.

Other new titles:
Tree of Life Version: This version is produced by the Messianic Jewish and Christian scholars and listed as ‘an authentic Jewish translation of Holy Scripture’. It features the Jewish order of the OT, the Jewish name of the messiah, Yeshua and Hebrew transliterated terms such as shalom, shofar and shabbat. The reason we have bought this is because of the very reasonable price. We have the personal size, giant print hardcover version for only R90 because they forgot to include one of the advertised glossaries at the back of the book!
Celtic Hymns. This is a DVD of hymns with scenes of Ireland, scriptures, meditations and prayers. R30.
