Christian Light Bookstore is the only one of it's kind in Frederick that I could find. I was looking for a very specific type of bible for a gift for my cousin and they had exactly what I was looking for. They are a little on the pricey side , but have a really nice selection of popular Christian music cd's and unique bibles. They also carry inspirational Christian literature , books , and pretty bookmarks and religious stationary items. They are located right off alt.40 going up towards Braddock Mountain. The store is quite inside and the staff is helpful. No children running around like a strip mall shop usually would have. I highly recommend this store !
Great store for all your Christian book needs. We go in their occasionally to find gifts for our nieces and nephews confirmation and communion gifts. They always have something nice and appropriate at great prices. The staff is incredible friendly and they even offer free gift wrapping. Can't beat that. I'd go there just for that service!
This store is nice for me because it is close and convenient. I tend to prefer the much larger stores I have been to, like Family Christian (Gaithersburg) or Provident (Hagerstown), BUT there are none of those in Frederick. Christian Light has very helpful and friendly staff, and since they are small and cannot carry as much, they are more than willing to order things for you. Their prices are a little high, but they do run sales on some items. I am often pleasantly surprised when I got to check out that the items I am buying is one sale -- perhaps as an improvement suggestion they could mark them better in the first place?
They just newley remodeled and they way their store is set up now it is much easier to get around than before. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable if you need assistance. The prices tend to be on the high side for books and CD's but you are supporting this Christian Business if you purchase from there!! The music playing in the store is very encouraging and they have a HUGE selection of Bibles to choose from!!
PROS: Knowledgeable and Friendly Staff who know their products!!
CONS: May be overpriced a bit for some of the Items!!
