NOTE: The CTS Bookstore will be closing permanently this Fall. Students will be able to order their books through Follet at the Butler bookstore.

CTS honors the power of the written word with one of the most comprehensive seminary bookstores in the nation. Much more than a source of textbooks, the CTS Bookstore—located in the main seminary building--is an educational resource for Christian thought.

With nearly 8,000 titles, the Bookstore’s wide selection embraces virtually every viewpoint. In addition to traditional topics such as theology, biblical studies, church history, ethics, pastoral care, homiletics, worship, leadership, education and spirituality, you’ll find the latest works on philosophy, gender studies, psychology, Judaica, Africana, Latino/Latina, religion and the arts, and world religions.

The CTS Bookstore is open to both students and the general public. Our staff can help with any questions and special orders. You can also order textbooks online.

Special Orders
If the bookstore does not carry a book, staff can tell you promptly if the book is still in print. It usually can be ordered without an advance deposit. Most orders are filled within two weeks. Overnight or second-day delivery incurs additional shipping costs. For special orders, please email. Please provide as much information as possible, such as the book title, author, publisher and ISBN.

Ask about special discounts for frequent buyers or collectors.

Charge Accounts + Consignments
Churches and other nonprofit organizations may set up tax-exempt charge accounts. In most cases, the account can be used on the same day. Faculty, staff and students enrolled in any CTS degree program are assigned an account number that may be used for book purchases. It must be paid in full by the end of each semester. The bookstore also accepts almost all credit and debit cards, checks and cash.

Organizations with an account are welcome to take books out on consignment to sell or display at events away from the seminary and are not charged for any books returned in salable condition. With advance notice, bookstore staff can put together a consignment order. We are glad to order extra books, given a fair likelihood that the returned books can be sold. Contact the bookstore for more details.
