Shirina,

But some of the Christian bookstores, the older independent ones you might find in larger cities, had a little bit more of a community feel. I remember one I discovered in the 90s about ten years before they closed. Sometimes the store layout was interesting too. There was a positive energy in there. But there was also a diversity. One employee might be conservative (like how you describe) but then they would have to sell a book, or a music tape or CD from someone who was coming from a more progressive Christian point of view. Another employee, the exact opposite. Kind of amusing.

What's the proper response? Guess thoughts and prayers didn't work. Wonder why?

Amazon is blamed, but they forget people are leaving religion in droves. They will keep an online presence, but who thinks that is going to last long?

For those that don't know, Lifeway is run and owned by the Southern Baptist Conference.
We are also losing book stores here in Germany, and it has nothing to do with religion.

I think the proper response is to feel sorry for the people employed and their families.

On line has less overheads and probably more potential customers (if they get the advertising right), so I would not bet on them from selling religious books.

Maybe he was not very good at it, so was put in charge of answering prayers.

I have just found myself agreeing with posts by Jeffbase, Ozzy AND BF.

I am just going to lay down for a little while.

And now I'm hearing reports of Amazon workers going insane on the job.
All I know is that in the 90's, stores like Borders and Barnes and Noble were huge. Then Amazon came along and they sell books for cheaper, and more convenient. I'd personally rather buy my books online for 1/2 the price, and if I want an overpriced chai lattee to go with it I'll swing by a coffee shop.
