The holidays bring all sorts of dilemmas, such as what to get the person who likes nothing and when to begin blocking off the chimney. Solve one of these problems with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Christian books, music, and gifts at Baker Book House.
Founded in 1939 by Herman Baker, Baker Book House fronts a collection of faith-based books and music that provides customers with a slew of gifts to begin or bolster their religious journey. Along with over 100,000 used books, top-selling titles, such as Longing by Karen Kingsbury ($14.99), engross readers in stories of intrigue during holiday road trips, and crunk melodies from Come to the Well by Casting Crowns ($13.99) break the monotony of listening for patterns in radio static. A copy of Jesus Calling Deluxe Edition by Sarah Young ($19.99) strengthens festive displays when placed alongside replicas of Frosty's nose.
Baker Book House
Shortly after emigrating to Grand Rapids from his native Netherlands, 14-year-old Herman Baker began part-time work at this uncle's bookstore. Among the shelves, Herman developed a love for religious texts that prompted him to found Baker Book House in 1939, with 500 books from his personal library. These days, Baker Book House's faith-based stock has expanded to include more than 100,000 used and remainder titles, out-of-print Christian works, Bibles of every stripe, and new books and eBooks.
Along with enticing reads, the store supplies religious DVDs, CDs by popular Christian artists such as Third Day, and church supplies including stoles, which supply an engaging alternative to watching your pastor reenact his favorite Transformers movie. In addition to its Christian inventory, Baker Book House hosts frequent events such as lectures and Q&As with religious authors and scholars.
