    I went to the website, but I am having trouble. The website layout has changed, and I cannot access the book section. Is anyone else having this problem?

    A lot of internet traffic; that's all. I have a friend who is experiencing the same thing.

    Could you give me some reccomendations for the book sale? I searched John Piper Reviews on google, and am seeing some negative reviews on his books, so just to be safe, suggest to me some books you have read and that have impacted you.

    I can't get to the site. I added one book to my cart on there, and that's all. It appears jammed

    Yeah, a friend of mine has been experiencing the same thing all day. But I went on last night and avoided all that. I believe it is the internet traffic. Maybe someone should call and see it they will extend the sale another day.

    Does anyone have a contact number? Maybe I can order things that way. I have spent the last hour and a half, and I can get the page to load every once in a while, but try to put something in a cart and you're toast

    I ordered my eleven books yesterday morning first thing. Had no trouble at all.

    The CBMW were on the list, as were some others, including the a couple on open theism and related topics.

    The Supremacy of God in Preaching is a must have, as is Let the Nations Be Glad on mission. I already had those.

    I would've ordered more if I could. I had to order by phone. Hours of clicking and waiting, and every time I got to the cart it was purged. The phone rep said that was the norm.

    Yes. Beware of them trying to shoe-horn you on the phone into higher shipping costs.
