Reformed Blog Considers Increasing Isolationist Trends Among Calvinist Shoppers
Regular reader Brian tipped us off about a discussion taking place at the Reformed blog, The White Horse Inn which began innocently enough with a reader wondering why you couldn’t buy works by John Calvin at Lifeway.
I couldn’t help but be drawn into the discussion, and I think you’ll find the comments to be most insightful. Most of us are getting a little sketchy on how to best service the Reformed Church market because increasingly, they are buying from their own sources, as we pointed out here when noting the results of the recent poll at Tim Challies’ blog. My own purchasing of Crossway titles is down about 50% from two years ago, because we just aren’t getting the sell-through. Sadly, the unavailability of Reformed titles at stores like mine is becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy.
