Yes, they sell sanitized music and “Jesus junk.” But something important gets lost when Christian bookstores disappear.

I was a frequent shopper at Christian bookstores in the seventies. Just this weekend I reminisced upon a bygone Christian bookstore I used to patronize in my youth. It was like a candy store for me, back then. I bought Corrie Ten Boom‘s book there, as well as other mind-expanding epistles for my youthful mind. I eventually graduated to a more eclectic library.
