This memory book proved to be the perfect answer as the copies were personalized for each child and the reasonable price meant I could afford three of them.

I recommend this item for all baptisms." ~

I immediately saw it as a perfect Christmas gift for my wife. After going to several Christian Book stores and only finding the same size as are in the pew racks, I was recommended the EBS. They had exactly what I wanted and to make it better, John was quick with personal emails to answer my questions. Although I didn't order it until Dec. 10, it was personalized, wrapped, shipped and arrived in just a few days. My wife loved it and we used it in church today for the first time. Thank you John and Nancy and all the great folks at EBS. " ~

The orders went out right away and were in time for the baptism. One item was defective and I just forgot about it. I received an email asking me to review the items. 5 of the items I was able to give glowing reviews on (3 Prayer dice and 2 Believe trinket boxes), but the wooden box I could not. I sent an email stating these facts. I then received an email from Nancy stating they would send another one gift wrapped to my grandson! He will be so pleased. I highly recommend this bookstore.

The gentleman I spoke with knew exactly what I was talking about and had my order out and to me (in Mississippi) in no time! It was just what we needed. (Originally, I had ordered from Amazon and it was a nightmare- the books didn't arrive together and then we were charged different prices because they had to outsource finding the books!)

  • "While I already sent an email to the distributors, I thought an on-site testimonial would be nice as well. St. Augustine's Prayer Book is a wonderful devotional book for Anglo-Catholic Episcopalians, but online, it's difficult to come by, and most copies of it I've seen are out of print and cost $50 and upwards. To my luck and delight, the Episcopal Bookstore had brand new copies of the book for a mere $15.95! As I'm about to be Confirmed in the Church, I decided I should get the Prayer Book. I received it along with an actual note written on the receipt, thanking me; I wasn't just another customer, I was actually regarded as an individual! The personal touch to the business made me feel great, especially in a world where so many things have gone impersonal. Praise be to God for such a kind group of folks at the Episcopal Bookstore! Sincerely, Stephen" ~

  • "First I want to applaud your fast service. You are awesome about getting items out. On the flip side I think your shipping and handling is way too pricey. Each time I order a 2.00 booklet type item I get hit with almost 6.00 in shipping. It makes me not to want to order these items. As the cost is less then a 1.00 most times to send. I believe these items should have adjusted shipping cost." ~

  • "Can I just take a moment to say how much I love The Episcopal Bookstore? I found it by accident in a search engine a few years ago and have used it almost exclusive since then. The selection is wonderful and I cannot say enough about the staff and owners. I called once to inquire about which Episcopal dictionary I should by, a smaller with all of the basic stuff or a more in-depth one. The person who answered the phone got copies of both books and sat there, discussing them with me, for a good 10 minutes. In the end, he suggested the smaller one and I bought it. It was much less expensive but it suits my needs perfectly. The bookstore ministry that John and Nancy have undertaken is valuable and blessed. The customer service is spot on. My purchases are generally in the mail to me the same day I order them. I wish nothing but continued success for this business, it's owners and it's staff. They walk the walk!" ~

Thanks for taking the time to care for your customers." ~

Not only did I receive a very prompt email confirming my order and that it would be rushed, I also received a follow up telephone call to assure me. The items were needed for a grandson's marriage to a lovely woman in New Orleans - just 10 days away. The personal service and concern to reassure me were in support of a very small order of 2 booklets costing no more than $15.00 with shipping. Wow! Great service, Great bookstore. " ~

The service is prompt, the follow up refreshing and the handwritten "thank you" on the invoice is the icing on the cake. After having been baptised as a baby and later confirmed, I have been away from the church for some time. Its unusual because I used to play church as a small child.

Not only was the order handled accurately and efficiently, it was handled personally. I received an e-mail from John updating me on the progress of printing, etc. I wrote John back and there began a few e-mails between us discussing our Priest Sons! I appreciate more than you know the personal attention given to my order and to me. I enjoyed sharing our 'conversations' with my son at Christmas when he opened his prayer book. Thanks again for making this a wonderful experience. I'll be back when he wears out this one! New Year's Blessings wished for you and Nancy, Becca Johnson" ~

I searched many sites on line and then it hit me- I know the perfect place to order the books, have then inscribed with their last name and know that it will be handled personally and with great care- the Episcopal Bookstore. I have ordered several books in the past and my orders have all arrived promptly and with a personal touch. Sure enough, I ordered on a Saturday and got a personal response from John, one of the owners, that weekend. He detailed exactly the process, that he would take to have the books inscribed on one day and would then gift wrap and ship them on another day that same week. All went as planned and my son and his bride are enjoying the books. It gave me great joy to know the personal touch that surrounded my order. I highly recommend the Episcopal Bookstore! Lynn" ~

    Thank you

  • "I recently purchased a 1940 hymnal, but since I am organist at our church, I needed one with spiral binding. Unfortunately you did not have one available. However, you gave me the option of purchasing the hymnal and having it rebound with spiral binding. I realize you DID NOT HAVE TO DO THIS, but it was most appreciated. I would also like to commend John for his help. I will be interested in just a couple of years in the 1928 BCP in combination with the Holy Bible, for my grandson who will be confirmed around that time and I will again return to you for that purchase if you have it available. Again, I MOST SINCERELY THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP. GOD BLESS YOU MOST ABUNDANTLY." ~

The most recent is the Prayer book/Hymnal Combination. I had my name engraved on it and it is just BEAUTIFUL!!!!! And it arrived in less than 7 days!! The service and shipping is just the best. Everything comes in perfect condition and in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend this website to anyone who does not have an Episcopal Bookstore in their area. Thank you so much for everything and I know I will need something soon!!!! God Bless" ~

We were glad to get an email telling us exactly what to expect with the process. And, what they communicated is exactly what happened.

May the business continue to be blessed." ~

The prices are reasonable (unlike other places I will not mention here who have huge markups!) the staff are knowledgable (again unlike certain other suppliers I have dealt with) the delivery is prompt - indeed I would very sincerely recommend them to anyone. I do hope that this review helps - not only because I want this wonderful supplier to stay in business so I can keep using them - but because I genuinely believe that new customers will be as satisfied as I am, even after many years and frequent orders. I have quite literally never dealt with a finer bookstore. May God bless them and keep them around for many, many years to come! ---from Port Perry, Ontario, Canada" ~

I ordered a plaque which was duly shipped as I requested, however the USPS lost the contents of the shipping carton. As soon as I notified John at the Episcopal Bookstore, he insured that another plaque was immediately mailed to me, with no additional costs to me. Although the USPS has given me a missing/stolen mail investigation number, John's immediate reaction renewed my faith in true customer relations. It is truly wonderful in today's fast paced world that one can find a store which really believes in customer service, and I am sold on the Episcopal Bookstore as a result." ~

    Rev. Bain White

While he wanted a leather bound copy, he found that they are almost impossible to find, and even a hardbound copy is not easy to get. He found your bookstore on a word search and when he could not get a leather bound copy, he decided on a hardbound copy from you store, because you were so helpful in the search. He got a beautiful, maroon colored prayer book and had my name embossed on the front in gold lettering. It is beautiful. He gave it to me as a Confirmation gift, and I love it. Thanks for helping him make this wonderful gift, possible. " ~
