I believe I ordered a book, but never got any sort of email receipt or verification. Was one sent?

Hi Jack,

Let me check on your order. I'll need your tranaction ID or email to look you up. Send me an email at swwells at gmail.com and I'll get you taken care of.

Thanks,

Steve

I received my copy yesterday! It is a massive thing, with a good, solid feel... a proper bible!
It's worth buying, if only for the Introduction and "About the Categories" section. The selected quotes from the old and new testaments inside the front and back covers are very helpful to get in the mood.
This volume will occupy a place of honor on my bookshelf, which contains a Revised Standard Version from church school, a Junior Bible from my grandfather (a Presbyterian minister), hymnals, and books by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Bart Ehrman, Dan Dennett, Carl Sagan and others.
My only complaint is that there is only one bookmark ribbon attached to the binding. There should be at least fourteen (color coded!)- one for the reader's favorite passage in each category. Well, the book would wind up like a maypole, so maybe that's not such a good idea. ^_^
Thanks, Steve Wells, for a most useful contribution to the skeptical lexicon! Now... how can we get these into all the hotel rooms?

I pre-ordered a copy of the book and never received any email. Is there something wrong?

Steve...got my book 2 days ago and I LOVE it...a very fine job. I am only 30 pages in but I am taking my time and marking it up for my future use and edification...it will be a wonderful resource and make reading the whole bible much more tolerable. Thanks for your hard work!! Jim Hudlow

Steve Weeks...what a great idea!! I'll shoot an email off to Paris Hilton and see if we can sell a few million more of these for Mr. Wells and edify an ignorant public in the process~~

Last Friday night I found a copy in a room on the 24th floor of the Conrad Hilton in Chicago!

Oh, yes... it was *my* copy. :-)
Come to think of it, I didn't find any holy scriptures in the room This was probably a good thing, as there was a "Nation of Islam" convention at the same hotel!! I doubt they would have appreciated finding anything but the Coo-coo-ran in their rooms.

Stephen...you left a great review on Amazon too....I can't wait until the first fundie puts the usual one star hockempucky on there without even having looked at the book....then we can dispense a little informed correction~~

Stephen said...

Jim, if my review was any good it must have been inspired by the holy spirit, 'cause I'm normally not very eloquent!
