Bestsellers of the NCC

by John Oliver

The NCC asked the Protestant publishing house where I work to provide a bookstore for their fiftieth anniversary event. Our house has cordial relationships with many other publishers and vendors whose material is well suited for such a broad ecumenical gathering. One of the NCC’s principle requests was for us to supply Eastern Orthodox resources. (A litany of books and icons might make the Orthodox feel more appreciated.)

Unclear as to where to obtain such fare, my publishing house called me—an Orthodox Christian—for leads and reasoned that I should attend the event as an Orthodox interpreter. Because of the difficulty in purchasing from Orthodox publishers at wholesale discounts, we opened our bookstore on the first day with only four Orthodox titles.
