    I am currently hosting a missionary from Karatina, Kenya, East Africa who is in need of books for his Bible School library. He needs books of all kinds, especially of a theological nature, and most especially commentary sets.

    If anyone knows of, or has any, such books available, or knows of a preacher who has retired/died and no longer has need of his library, and would be willing to give them to a very good, established, and sucessful Baptist missionary, please let me know. Thanks.

    Thomas,

    I have a few textbooks from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary that I was going to sell, but I would love to donate them to a missionary. I also have some commentaries, Bibles and a Bible Atlas. Is there any way he can pay for shipping?

    Thomas,
    How do we get the books to you? Can you give a little more detail as to the kinds of books you are looking for?

    Tom and Daniel, any books of a spiritual nature (Christian, of course!). Commentary sets, or individual commentaries, histories, theology, anything a bible school could put on its library shelves for the students to read and learn from. By the way, they don't all have to be from one side of the theological spectrum. I don't believe it hurts students to know what others are thinking. [​IMG]

    You can send them to me at:

    First Baptist Church
    8758 Troy Street
    Spring Valley, CA 91977

    US postal service 4th class book rate is cheapest, and if postage becomes a problem, the church here will be glad to pay for it. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys, this is a real blessing! [​IMG]

    The above is me, having a baptistcostal fit!

    Thomas,

    I will try to gather them tonight and ship them out tomorrow. And don't worry - they are all Christian books (even mostly evangelical) ;)

    Thanks,
    Daniel

    All Christian and Evangelical? No wonder you want to get rid of them, Payne! :eek:

    Thomas, I have a few books that I can send as well. It may be a week before I can get it together, is that OK? [​IMG]

    Okay by me! The missionary will be with us until May. Our church has a ministry of taking care of missionaries who are suffering from "burn out." We take them in for however long it takes them to regain their strength and health. [​IMG]

    Thrift stores are full of them, especially if they are Christian ran. They would probably let go of these very reasonable if you explained your need.
