In the Mail

I noted this on Twitter the other day but neglected to mention it on the blog, but my Amazon order arrived. I got:

Dogma and Preaching: Applying Christian Doctrine to Daily Life

Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week: From the Entrance Into Jerusalem To The Resurrection

Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives

What Every Christian Needs to Know About the Qur’an

I had tracked the package a few days before it arrived and was dismayed to see that it had left a sorting center in Kentucky. That meant that it shipped from the Lexington warehouse, which is notorious for poor packing methods that result in damaged goods. I’ve received numerous damaged books and even video games from this particular warehouse (see here for details).

In the most recent instance I was quite pleased to see that nothing was damaged, but not for lack of trying. The books were packed in a box that was larger than it needed to be and there was no bubble wrap or even styrofoam peanuts in the box. There was one un-inflated packaging cushion in there. Ridiculous!

It’s only by the grace of God and the tender-loving care of the USPS that these books were not dented and creased! Something needs to be done about this particular shipping hub. We must rise up against poor packaging methods; especially since we’re paying good money for new books! Who’s with me?!!
