The Parable is a wonderful Christian bookstore. It has a very calm and relaxing atmosphere and the workers are always very friendly. They have a large selection of gift items. I like to shop here for gifts for my mother whenver there is a special occasion because she collects angels and they have such beautiful collectibles at reasonable prices. They have great sales rather frequently as well and especially have great prices on their Christain CD's.

Is it truly religious to make money off of the word of our Lord and Saviour? Did Jesus go around selling what he had to offer, miracles, fish, foot wasings, and wine? No. If Christ wouldn't do it, why is it okay for his followers to attempt making a buck off of his good words?

Great Question! I appreciate your honesty, and hopefully I can offer an interesting perspective to put your doubts to rest. First of all, no one who runs a Christian bookstore does so for the money--quite the contrary--turning any sort of profit is rare. What we do is a ministry, providing a safe haven for everyone to encounter the truth and love of Christ, even those who would feel nervous about going to church. And sure, the Bible doesn't mention Jesus raising money, but he lived off of the kindness and generosity of others, as did Paul and the other Apostles. In the same way we depend on God to supply our needs financially through those we minister to. Plus, miracles and foot washings didn't cost Jesus any $, whereas Bible publishers do insist we pay them (bummer!). I hope that helps.
