Where to buy my books…

My friends, please forgive me for such a blatantly commercial post. File this one under “Yes, authors have to make a living, too.”

This morning someone asked me on Twitter, “Where can I buy your books?” And I realized, marketing genius that I am, that I didn’t have one centralized “where to buy” page. So this post seeks to rectify that.

Here, in one handy location, are links for each of my three most recent books — whether you want ebook versions (available in a variety of formats), paperback versions, and whether you would rather buy from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or an independent bookstore, one of these links should fit the bill for you. The Big Book of Christian Mysticism is even available as an audiobook.

Thank you for your interest, and I hope you enjoy the books.

Charmingly and conversationally written, but also rich in nuance and thorough in its coverage and its attention to detail, The Big Book of Christian Mysticism is, as its name suggests, a big … even an enormous … contribution to our current literature on the subject.  Highly recommended. — Phyllis Tickle

What Frommers, Rick Steves, and Lonely Planet are to travel guides for physical locales, Carl McColman is fast becoming for the spiritual journey. There is so much that recommends this delightful guide — Carl’s own depth of experience, his wonderful ability to bring in apt quotations from the great contemplative saints of history, his ability to be both simple and deep without ever becoming simplistic or murky. As I read, I kept thinking of friends with whom I want to share this treasure — a travel guide to an adventurous journey that will last forever. — Brian D. McLaren

Buy The Lion, the Mouse and the Dawn Treader:

Paperback: Amazon • Barnes & Noble

 Independent Bookstore (Online or Near You)

Ebook: Kindle • Nook • Kobo • Sony eReader

Buried within C. S. Lewis’s children’s books are timeless messages about the Christian faith. Carl McColman reveals how Lewis’s fascinating adventure can help us more fully understand spiritual insights from not only Jesus himself, but also some of the great saints and mystics. By turns playful, provocative and profound, McColman asks us to ‘become like little children’ in order to understand some very adult lessons. — James Martin, SJ

Disclosure: the Amazon and B&N links are set up to provide me with a small commission on purchases made by people who use those links. I don’t receive commissions from the indie bookstore links, but indie bookstores are wonderful so I encourage you to support them. Naturally, I receive royalties on all new copies of my books that are sold, regardless of the retailer. Thank you for your support.

    They are excellent for teaching, and not since the “The Cloud” has anything been as good.

    Thank you for this. I had ordered the Big Book from a used vendor in Amazon and they cancelled my order yesterday because they said it must have been misshelved. So God’s timing on your “advertisement” is just perfect for me. Looking forward to getting it!

      Thanks, Mary Beth. I hope you enjoy it.
