Bargain Basement Worship
Did that title catch your eye? Wondering what the Pilgrim is going to write on that topic? Don't worry! It's not going to be controversial.
I've often looked at an 8-volume set of books by Robert Webber on Worship and thought it would be a good reference collection to have. The price was prohibitive though. The list price is $50.00 per volume although you can catch a break if you buy all eight (8) books. The set lists at $350.00 (U. S. Funds)
Today I got a sneak preview of the used books at the Hope Valley Day Camp Annual Garage Sale. Mrs. Kearney always looks for me on the Friday morning of the May holiday weekend. I was there this morning and was not disappointed.
The above-mentioned set, still in its original box, was available for $5.00. That's $5.00 TOTAL, not $5.00 per book. Was I excited! I quickly snapped up that set and about 30 other books for my library.
What a treasure! Now I'm wondering if my Pilgrim Pal, Julie (Sweet Inspirations) is going to be upset with me. What did you pick up today, my friend?
Worship should never be cheap or bargain-basement priced but this set of books was cheap.
By the way, Robert Webber went home to be with the Lord in late April after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. He left a legacy of books on true worship. Thanks, Robert!
