One of my first blog posts on this website was regarding a new bookstore in the Greater Moncton area called Faithful Servant Books located on Pine Glen Road in Riverview New Brunswick. I had already written my approval of this store yet I thought it worthwhile to write again about it.
I had the opportunity to spend a good 1.5 hours today at FSB looking through their merchandise. I must say that when you have the time to really scope through the products that you get a far greater appreciation for the quality of this store. I was honestly impressed with the titles that they had available.
I have visited many bookstores throughout my years as a Christian and honestly the vast majority of them were a blend of self-help advice books camouflaged with a “Christian” cover or books from the Health, Wealth and Prosperity crowd giving advice on marriage and money. That is not to say that there weren’t some stores that carried good orthodox biblical books but the majority were “unfortunate”. Faithful Servant Books is nothing of the sort and quite honestly I feel they need more support and this is why I am writing this post this evening.
Folks, if you are a person who is really desiring learning scripture more deeply or if there is a topic in scripture that you would like to delve deeper in understanding, or if you would like to find commentaries to help you in your study of God’s word, you can rest assured that Faithful Servant Books has something there for you. FSB carries books for serious students who want to honestly grow in their understanding of scripture. FSB also carries a wide range of good bible translations and also some references to learn and understand the original languages (Hebrew & Greek). They also have a fantastic used book section that you can find some really great volumes at a fantastic price. I purchase two fantastic books by W.E. Best today for $3.00 a book. The staff there is fantastic and extremely helpful. They are not indifferent to your needs and are there to help you find what you are looking for. They are very knowledgeable and can help guide you.
I feel that it is important for us as Christians in the Greater Moncton Area to support a book store that is at this caliber. If you are in the area, drop in to see for yourselves what’s available for you. I would find it highly unlikely that you will leave this store without purchasing something.
