The idea of LoveChristianBooks.com was founded in 2011 by a Christian named Tim who, after many years in the Christian book trade saw the need to offer a large variety of Christian products to the wider Christian community with the hopes of encouraging believers walk with The Lord regardless of background or doctrinal persuasion.
Tim had a particular vision to offer Bibles, Christian books, media, gifts and stationery in an affordable, and easy to access way, especially for those who may not have a local Christian bookshop in their community or were unable to reach their nearest one. As part of this vision, Tim had a desire not just to offer a wide range of products to individuals and local churches, but also to offer free postage to all customers in the UK (where lovechristianbooks.com is based). In addition, after many years working in supplying retailers with various products, Tim was determined not to create a business based on a Drop-Shipping model. Tim wanted customers to be able to receive items quickly and not have to wait for their orders. You can find out more about Drop Shipping and why we dislike this method of doing business on our 'Why Us?' page.
Over the years the need for this vision has grown dramatically with many Christian bookshops shutting their doors, due to higher rent charges, or the lack of footfall on the high streets as many choose to shop online and more online Christian retailers reverting to a Drop Shipping model.
We are proud to be able to offer Bibles, books and gift items that are no-longer available elsewhere. As well as being one of the first online Christian book and gift sellers in the UK to sell a large range of individual greetings cards from a variety of manufacturers. We have had the priveledge of serving customers from around the world many of whom return regularly.
Since launching the site back in 2012 LoveChristianBooks has gone through several major re-designs, including back in September 2014 when we added new and exciting products like a large range of Christian jewellery.
Over the years we have also been able to exhibit at many of the UKs premier Christian events including the Christian Resource Exhibition (CRE) and Gathering100 sadly many of these events became cost prohibitive or were no longer logistically viable.
During the Covid pandemic in 2020 we continued to ship orders worldwide, adapting to increasing costs of delivery caused both by Brexit, and multiple requests from our international customers to receive tracking numbers for all their orders.
The site went through another major re-design and modernisation in mid 2021 which it currently how it looks today.
We continue to look to improve our site by adding products and new features, and are always happy to hear from our valued customers who have ideas for improvements to make the user experience easier.
