Many years ago, as a teenager, I was a regular patron of Christian book stores, and I would buy several titles at a go to brush up on my faith. I did this because the Catholic media movement (selling books and media) is not strong where I come from. Ignorant as I was, I kept reading them and even thought, apart from their few anti-Catholic statements here and there, they were great books.
Of course, that was way before I started sniffing Catholic books. Eventually, I managed to get my hands on Catholic books by import, and discovered the depth and richness that Catholic authors offered in their books. Compared to them, Protestant writers seem really ‘shallow’ - not used to offend, but they’re simply very ‘on the surface’. Now I’m addicted to Catholic reading, and am happy to splash good cash to REALLY brush up my faith.
The problem I have now is that I’m stuck with many Protestant books - by John MacArthur and several other protestant writers. I want to get rid of them, because (1) I don’t really want to have lousy information in my shelves, and (2) I want to make way for more good Catholic reading. What should I do with these books?
I wanted to put them up for a cheap sale on eBay but figured that if I think such info is no good, as a responsible Catholic, I should not be putting it up for others. Of course, if I had sold them, I would have raised a little returns to fund new books. Is my only option to burn them up or throw them in the chutes?! Some of them are new and untouched.
I don’t think there is an official thing for me to do, so please feel free to throw your opinions here. I think many previously Protestant readers might benefit from this too! Many thanks in advance!
