The true cost of this endeavor was much less than what has been reported, and to be clear, all of the books purchased through this campaign have been given away or sold through normal channels.

It sad when a pastor doesn't trust God or maybe doesn't believe God is sovreign or omnipotent and takes it upon himself to use backhanded secular techniques to be able to promote himself more.
