The owners of the espresso and book store on First Street told me last night they were a little uncomfortable Sunday when the announcement came up on the screen at their church for the Tony Campolo book signing that will be held at their place this afternoon. They don’t want to use the church to promote their business and they don’t want anyone to wonder if they are doing that.

As a denominational publisher I see a lot of overlap between ministry and commerce. And there is a large grey area for them as well. For Christian book publishers and sellers, maybe instead of commerce being on one end of the spectrum and ministry on the other, perhaps it is all about commerce and all about ministry.
