Top Three Books Sold From This Blog

This post is basically an advertisement.

I looked through my Amazon Associate site’s reports to see what the best selling books are among this blog’s community. Whenever there is a link to a book here, it’s through my Amazon Associates account where I earn 4%. I should be making this more clear. The cost to the customer is the same of course, or I wouldn’t do it. I have to be thrifty myself. I don’t make much at all since books aren’t exactly a high priced item, especially with Kindle books (see all of the Fire and E-reader products there, like the new Paperwhite) and used books. I have a link in the right column for those who want to buy other items through it to help me out (along with two other bookstores–which is OK with them), which I’m very grateful for.

I read on ProBlogger that one way to make some sales is to post the top products sold on one’s blog. This shows what might be good to buy because of popularity. This is also a service to the readers.

The first one, A Call to Spiritual Reformation, Priorities from Paul and His Prayers by D.A. Carson, is by far the most popular, bought in paperback and Kindle editions. I didn’t review it–I wrote a post about it and Paul’s Prayers, including a list of the Bible references to all of his prayers, which can be ‘moused over’ if you have a computing device that handles it, to get a good idea of the content, or click through to see the whole passage. The idea is to compare Paul’s prayers to your own, which transformed how I pray quite a few years ago. (There is a new edition out with a new, and I think more appropriate title: Praying with Paul: A Call to Spiritual Reformation. As far as I can tell, it’s the same book with a new cover and a new Preface.)

The next one, The God Who Is There: Finding Your Place in God’s Story coincidentally (providentially?) also by D.A. Carson, may be second partly because somebody bought a lot of them. But anything by D.A. Carson is well worth it. This is a more basic book of who God is and how he works. I included this in a post titled Three Books For New Christians.

The Valley of Vision: A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions is something that can be found on the Puritan Prayers page. I have some of the prayers on that page and formatted them to be printed out. I pray through one of them once a week and never get tired of them.

Puritan Prayers

So two of them are by D.A. Carson and two of them are on prayer. The one in fourth place is also on prayer but it’s one I don’t endorse, so I chose not to list it. There are a whole lot of others lined up in fifth and sixth place, etc. Someday I may list my favorites. I also have a Reviews page with links to all of the books that have been formally reviewed here.

Thank you for stopping by and reading.
