Darrell Bock visits SA…Kendall Specials & Janet Greener’s Midlife Crisis

RT Kendall

Dr RT Kendall delivered outstanding Bible teaching during his visit to SA last month. Now retired after decades of ministry from the pulpit and through his writings, Dr Kendall’s impact on the global church is immeasurable. Earnest Paddon wrote this of his teaching (In Pursuit of His Glory):      

“He has an amazing knowledge of the Scriptures and a willingness to deal with any verse in the passage preached, however difficult it might be. I can never remember hearing a sermon which did not bless me. He truly practiced what he has preached.”

CBD was present during his visit with his popular books in high demand. Now we are offering a selection of these at great discounts.

Janet Greener’s Midlife Crisis

Janet farewell pic

For nigh on ten years, Janet Greener has been the marketing drive of CBD. She built solid relationships with churches, launched stores nationwide, and got to know the Christian book industry inside out.

“I didn’t have a clue about books when I first joined,” she says. “I thought the perfect Christian book was anything at CUM.”

We’re having our final catch-up before she walks out. I ask what she’ll miss most.

“Oh, shucks… bringing out some great speakers to South Africa, people like John Blanchard, Brian Edwards, Joel Beeke, Christopher Ash, Paul Tripp… getting involved with some dynamic pastors at grass roots level… there’s so much!”

And why is she leaving?

“I told my husband I think I’m having a mid-life crisis. He looked at me and said, ‘You’re definitely having one’. Ag, I feel after ten years that I’ve given it my best shot. Now it’s your turn!”

I’ve just spent two weeks flying around the country with her, meeting and greeting our clients and staff. Her energy and experience has awed me. She can hold a face-to-face conversation, whatsapp and deal with cancelled flight emergencies all at the same time. She’s a tour de force. We hug and she’s off to whatever’s next.

“Give me a call anytime you need advice,” she says as she leaves.

For sure, I think to myself. I’ll be doing plenty of that.

Grant Griffiths has stepped into Janet Greener's shoes. Pop in anytime for a coffee and chat with him at our head office in Claremont, or drop him a mail at grant@christianbooks.co.za with regard to anything marketing or sales.
