Black Friday is finally here. Many stores have already been running deals but many more deals have been added or will be added as the day progresses. I’ll be updating this post frequently, adding the stores one by one. If you see any great Bible deals I haven’t added please let me or Randy know.
We are affiliates of many (but not all) of the stores listed and this post does contain affiliate links. The use of these links does not change your price but does mean we get a small portion of the sale to support Bible Buying Guide.
The featured deal is the 43 volume Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching for $239.99 (70% off its normal price which is hundreds of dollars cheaper than the list price for the set in print). Published by John Knox these commentaries deal with whole portions or sections of text rather than with individual verses and words.
Randy likes the look of one of the Mobile Ed courses, CM102 Invitation to Biblical Preaching I: Theological, Historical, and Pragmatic Reasons for Preaching. It is currently 76% off which makes it $34.99. They have 3 other popular Mobile Ed courses on sale 90% off.
Dayspring has lots of deals running at the same time. They have a coupon code, FRIDAY, that will get you 30% off sitewide with just a few exceptions. They have a big BOGO sale, 90 items are currently Buy One Get One Free. They have a Flash Friday Sale on 2020 planners, reusable water bottles, and organization bags. The Bible Journaling Sale is still active. And to top it off the coupon code works in addition to most of the sale prices.
Christian Book has thousands of items on sale. I’m going to focus on Bibles on sale but it’s a great place to shop for gifts and Christmas items as well.
The new doorbusters sales that started this morning include the ESV Illuminated Scripture Journal: New Testament Boxed Set on sale for $39.99 (my review here) and the new NIV Life Application Study Bible, Third Edition in either black or burgundy bonded leather for $37.49 (my review here).
There are a lot of other Bibles on sale as part of the Black Friday event. The KJV Thompson Chain-Reference Bible in blue bonded leather with thumb indexing is on sale for $39.99 (Randy’s review with a different cover here). They have the KJV Large Print Wide Margin Bible in brown imitation leather for $14.99 (Randy’s review of the hardcover here).
While only one is a doorbuster sale Christian Book has a few other ESV Scripture Journal Sets on sale as part of Black Friday. You can get the ESV Illuminated Scripture Journal: Old Testament Boxed Set (that matches the colorful New Testament set above) for $99.99. The black cover ESV Scripture Journal: Old Testament Boxed Set (Randy’s review here) is on sale for $87.49 or you can get the ESV Scripture Journal, Old and New Testament Sets together for $124.99.
Lifeway’s brick and mortar stores may be closed but their online store has some great Black Friday deals. Their page states new deals featured each day. I’m not if that means new sales each day or just new ones get moved to the top of the page. Their online store (and sale) features many of the same products they carried in their store like apparel, books, church supplies, and much more. I’ll be focusing on Bible deals today.
They have several hardcover study Bibles on sale for $20.00. Among them are the new CSB Tony Evans Study Bible, (Randy’s review coming soon) the CSB He Reads Truth Bible (Randy’s review here) and the CSB She Reads Truth Bible (my review here). They also have the hardcover versions of the 3rd Edition Life Applications Study Bible in either NIV or the NLT for $20.00 (my reviews of the NIV and the NLT). The other covers of all these Bibles are on sale but the hardcovers are the most heavily discounted.
They have lots of other Bibles on sale. One sale not to miss if you are interested is the CSB Illustrating Bible on sale for $50.00 (my review of the original pink one here). This Bible is rarely on sale and while it is a very big Bible it has the thickest paper of any journaling Bible on the market.
It’s Accordance’s 25th Anniversary so it was easy to decide how to celebrate Black Friday this year. 25% off almost everything in the store using the coupon code 25offBFCM19. Collections, Collection Upgrades, Crossgrades, and Academic Bundles are not included but with everything else eligible it’s a great time to build your library. Coupon code good until Mon, Dec. 2, 2019 (11:59 PM EST).
Church Bible Publishers
(Added 11/30) Church Bible Publishers is running a deal. Now through 12/2/19 get 15% off most in-stock items using code using promo code Sale15 at checkout. As a ministry instead of a business Church Bible Publishers runs very close to cost so deals like this are few and far between.
Don’t forget tomorrow, Saturday November 3oth, is the last day to use Evangelical Bible’s coupon codes. You can get $15 off of a $150 purchase, using code Bible15, or $40 off of a $400 purchase, using code Bible40.
You can get 15% off sitewide at Tyndale using coupon code EXTRA15 and free shipping (US only) as well.
If you Bible journal there are a couple of sales (that run now through Monday) you won’t want to miss. Illustrated Faith is having a huge sale on all their downloadable products. Use coupon code SPARKLE50 to get 50% all digital products (make sure the code is applied before you finish checking out). They are even discounting a few of their kits & add-ons no code required. Art Impressions is also having a big sale. 20% off everything (including sale items) if you use the coupon code BFCM19.
Olive Tree is having a big sale this weekend. A lot of Bibles, commentaries, and other resources are on sale up to 85% off. This sale includes the New English Translation Bible 2nd Ed. (NET) for $14.99 and three different translations (NRSV, NIV, or NKJV) of the Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible for $19.99 each.

We welcome your feedback. If you ever want to recommend any item included in a sale we highlight or know of any other good sales on Bibles or related materials please share in the comments. Also, if there is a particular Bible you’d like to find on sale share that in the comments as well. I can’t guarantee I’ll find a deal (or that I won’t miss a deal) but I’ll be sure to highlight that Bible in a future post if I do find it on sale.
