Grudem and the need to pray for pastors in France

The arrival of Grudem raises a point for prayer.

I ordered my copy of Théologie Systématique at a pre-publication price. Because books are important and publishing in French is important, it is important to buy things like this to support Christian publishing in France. But one does that at a price. The standard price for Grudem in French will be 64€ (£56). Obviously that's very expensive. There's a launch price of 56€, but that's still a lot of money. Pre-publication it was cheaper again.

Meanwhile Amazon.co.uk gives a price of £22.64 for Grudem in English. Even when books exist in print, they're still really expensive, few French pastors are paid as well as British ones, and France has become a very expensive country to live in.

So please pray for French pastors.
