A Pile of Books?

So, I have this pile of books that I don't know what to do with... Any ideas?

Basically, these are brand new books that people have given me as gifts, that I already have, or don't want. So yeah... I'm in a lucky position...

Thoughts? Ideas? Sale?

I've also got a list of second hand commentaries that I'm going to sell in NZ. So if anyone wants one of those, I'll post the list when I get there...

Donate them to a local theological library especially one to the north in Zimbabwe (Theological College of Zimbabwe)! I've got some friends that teach there, and my wife did her overseas missions practicum at the college.

I am more than willing to take Barrett on Acts off your hands if you'd like...

Sean,
If you are wanting give any away I'd be interested in them. The Seitz books, the smaller Gunton book and the Lieu book. I'm also somewhat interested in the Collins book, the Heim book and the Wright/Crossan dialog.

I know there are a lot of bibliobloggers who would really benefit from the big Wright book, Dunn and Bauckham. I hope those find a good home.

Let us know if you decide to do anything with them and also about your 2nd hand commentaries.

If you are selling them in SA - I would definitely be interested in some that are visible - especially if they are a good price (Capetonians always after a good deal... what can we say!) Post a list...

Hey guys, shot for all the feedback. James, I just gave a stack of my books away to the Zambian church we helped plant, so I am contributing their. But the rest of these books are to bless some others. I'd gladly sell them to anyone, but shipping then becomes a burden, as prices in SA are exceptionally expensive. I'd probably say $15 a book (negotiable), but then how do I get them to you?

PS: Eddie has first dibbs on Bauckham. I can take these to NZ, if that'll be easier. And to John in CT, R100 bucks a book? Where do we meet to exchange? I get to CT once a month.

Hey Sean,

Sounds good. Work in Town central, mon-fri doing student ministry at CPUT, so if you let me know when you will be in CT, can organise a spot to meet.

Any ideas on what titles you have available?

Can e-mail me at jpscheepers@gmail.com to organise
