Special Orders
If the bookstore does not carry a book, staff can tell you promptly if the book is still in print. It usually can be ordered without an advance deposit. Most orders are filled within two weeks. Overnight or second-day delivery incurs additional shipping costs. For special orders, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it the bookstore and provide the book title, author, publisher (if possible) and international standard book number (ISBN)(if possible).

Discounts + Sales
Among the bookstore’s variety of discounts, the most popular is the frequent buyer discount. Buyers who spend more than $200 at the bookstore qualify for a 30% discount on a future purchase. Collectors receive a 30% set discount on an entire set of commentaries or other reference works.

Charge Accounts + Consignments
Churches and other nonprofit organizations may set up tax-exempt charge accounts. In most cases, the account can be used on the same day. Faculty, staff and students enrolled in any CTS degree program are assigned an account number that may be used for book purchases. It must be paid off by the end of each semester. The bookstore also accepts almost all credit and debit cards, checks, and cash.

Organizations with an account are welcome to take books out on consignment to sell or display at events away from the seminary and are not charged for any books returned in salable condition. With advance notice, bookstore staff can put together a consignment order. They are glad to order extra books, given a fair likelihood that the returned books can be sold.
