Rockford finally has a book store that I can enthusiastically endorse!


The laborers for Christ at First Baptist Church have organized a real, well-stocked bookstore. You’ll find lots of John MacArthur and NONE (Praise the Lord!) of T.D. Jakes et al. Be assured. There will be no profiteering off of gullible Christianity in this place by the selling of trinkets with WWJD and such on them. This is for the sober-minded.

You should also be aware of the fact that Pillar Christian Bookstore is not out to make money. The prices are unbeatable. I would be surprised if you can beat them anywhere.

I hope Scott Aniol will post some helpful instructions here for those who may want to check the store out. Store hours, sales, whatever. . .

Finally, isn’t “Pillar Christian Bookstore” a great name?

Our gratitude to Scott Williquitte and Scott Aniol for ministering to our city in this way. Let’s show some support!

  1. so…do you just go to their building? are there certain hours? or is it online only? i guess those are the instructions you’re hoping scott will post, huh? i’ll try to be patient. 🙂

  2. We’re really excited to finally get this going! We’ve had the space in our new building, but no money to stock it. Finally we’ve got it going.

    The bookstore is, of course, open during our normal church meeting hours, but for those who want to stop by at other times, here are the details:

    Other than normal service hours, the bookstore will be open on Wednesdays from 10:00-4:00 or by appointment any other time during the week. Just give the church a call (815.395.0550) and see if we’re in. There’s normally always someone here, but in case we’re out visiting or whatever, just give us a call.

    You can click HERE for a description of the bookstore and a summary of these business hours.

    Bob’s right; we’re not out to make any money. Any profits that come from sales go directly back into buying more good resources. Everything in the store is 25-35% off retail, and you pay no sales tax.

    Besides books, we’ve got (screened!) Christian greeting cards and music (both sacred and classical).

  3. Sorry, no web store, yet. I’m considering it . . . 🙂

  4. scott, there is NO shame in not having a webstore. at least not for us locals who are excited to have a physical place to browse unassaulted. i do almost all my book browsing online now. it’s nice to have a recommendation to visit a brick-n-mortar venue.

  5. Scott,

    Before you become a webstore talk with the folks at trinitybookservice.org. They are closing the business because it became all consuming. You’ll be sending books to Uzbekistan. Of course, if that is what God wants, great!
