Softcovers? I'll Say.

Just got the CBD "Preferred Customer" catalog here in the office, and saw on the back cover the following wonderful offer: Martin Luther's sermons, 7 volumes, for $30. Oooh, I said. I was thus provoked into flipping through the rest of the catalog. Did I have to preface this with an excuse? Yes.

Further in, I found the Backpack Book Collection, the byline for which read: Kids today need honorable heroes. Give your 9- to 12-year-olds the thrill of meeting 24 inspiring personages, including Jesus, Abe Lincoln, Esther, David, Jim Elliot, and Corrie ten Boom. Softcovers.

Jesus, of course, is listed first.
