theology books, no questions asked

Most colleges have a couple bookstores around the campus offering books at a fraction of the cost of the campus bookstore. Now there is one in the Southern neighborhood too. Refiner’s Fire Books is behind B-Dub (Buffalo Wild Wings) in the St. Matthews Station at the corner of Breckenridge and Shelbyville. They specialize in used and out-of-print theology books.

No questions asked
If the check out interrogation (What’s your name? What’s your box number? What’s your telephone number? How much do you weigh? I'll need a fingerprint. Etc.) and the high prices and the rat tunnel of the Lifeway on campus annoy you, you will like Refiner’s Fire Books. I know some of you like to use the tunnel at Lifeway to meet the opposite sex. *bump* “Oh, excuse me, I’m sorry. Wow, your name must be Grace, because you are irresistible.”

At RFB there is room for more than 1.2 persons to walk abreast in the store and the prices are pretty low. The owner doesn’t ask a lot of questions but he is knowledgeable, so you might want to ask him some questions.

Yes, but are there Calvinist books?
There are several books of Calvin’s prominently displayed.

If you need some cash mid-semester, he is buying books for his inventory and he also trades books as well. You might be able to unload that Joel Osteen book your Aunt gave you when she heard you were going to seminary. Someone needs to get some prosperity out of that book!

Tell all your friends and arminians about this guy because we really need him here.

I promise you, some day, you'll find the Calvinist gal who's just begging for a line as suh-WEE-tah as that'n.

The other posibilites don't have quite the ring to it: "You must be totaled, because you're depraved." You know what would make a good post? A video of an experiment with that line. "approximately 10:49 a.m., approaching female subject, using calvinist pick-up-line, subject laughing uncontrolably."

HAHAHAHA that's hilarious. "What will I do about my dear Saji! She has fallen for this intellectual, historical, and scholarly theology. Yes, only Benny Hinn can bring her back from such nonsense."

I can't think of him without imagining him shooting his Holy Spirit Machine gun. The way I see it, it's sort of an alien purple gatling gun.

Personally, I would have moral issues with doing anything with this book other than destroying it. I would feel responsible for it leading a Christian astray if I were to put it on Amazon.
