100_0054.jpgI came across some additional hardback copies of the Library of Christian Classics series, and thought I would offer them here before I do on eBay or Amazon. This series has just been republished by WJK in paperback, and each of those paperback editions are going for $27 or more. This set is well-respected for the excellent translations, introductions, notes (footnotes!), and indices. For example, the standard English edition of John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion by McNeil and Battles (not up for sale, I’m afraid) comes from this set.

I am asking $14 per book (except for Augustine: Later Works, for which I’m asking $12) which includes free media mail shipping. If you want to get all six, I will sell and ship them to you for $70. [UPDATE: The Augustine volumes are gone, but I’ll still offer a “group” rate on the remaining three volumes, which I’ll sell and ship together for $39.] If you are interested, please email me; I can take either check or credit card. Here are the editions I am offering:
