Hello everyone. I am struggling with this question and am looking for some advice. I own a catholic book business and originaly sold ONLY catholic books from catholic publishers. However as the business has grown I am getting new inquiries about books from non catholic sources. I have found myself ordering non catholic books although these books are christian books. Anyhow it has been on a small level thus far, but my business is really growing and I’m thinking so will the demand for more christian books.
All of my current clients are catholic churches, but the question has been raised about expanding the business to include christian churches as our clients also. I don’t necessairly have a delima about selling a non catholic book, but I do have a delima if that book promotes in some way the protestant worldview ie salvation by faith alone, or scripture as the sole authority, or anything else that is at odds with our catholic faith. So here is the problem. Most of the time when I’m asked to a book from a non catholic source I haven’t read that book so I really don’t know what it has in it…so is it right to take on christian churches as my clients and to start selling to them the books they want when the majority of those books will be non catholic books?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
