Wake County Library Book Sale

Posted by on Nov 22, 2008 in books | Comments Off

Every year, the Wake County Public Library has a book sale. We were not able to go last year. But, last night, we drove to Raleigh for the sale. I didn’t find many books, but I’m excited about the books that I did find. And, I think you’ll agree, I found a wide variety of books. It’s actually funny to me how diverse these five books and authors are. Here they are, in alphabetical order by author:

Hans Küng, On Being A Christian (trans. by Edward Quinn, Garden City: Doubleday, 1976).

J.R.V. Marchant and Joseph F. Charles, Cassell’s Latin Dictionary (New York: Funk & Wagnall’s, 1958.

Brian D. McLaren, Everything Must Change: Jesus, Global Crises, and a Revolution of Hope (Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 2007).

Ben Witherington, III, The Gospel Code: Novel Claims About Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Da Vinci (Downers Grove: InterVarsity, 2004).

N.T. Wright, The Millenium Myth: Hope for a Postmodern World (Louisville: Westminster John Knox, 1999).

If you’re in the Raleigh area, you should stop by the book sale Saturday or Sunday. They add new books to the sale regularly. Plus, I was only able to look through a few tables in one section.
