Still Evangelical by Claiborne (IVP) is on sale until 8/31 from Amazon. Can we get a price match?

Thanks for checking with us first! The sale price of  $4.99  (a 70% discount) was extended to us from IVP until the end of the month. If Amazon is selling it for less, then they likely have a special deal from IVP. We are not always given the same pricing as Amazon and are not able to price match due to royalty issues.

Thanks again!

Thanks for checking. I think that’s Amazon’s price. I always prefer ebooks in Logos format

I would have very much liked to read this book, and of course to have in my Logos library. Once again I find out when trying to complete my purchase that you can't deliver the book to me, since your publisher only gave incomplete rights to you (which is not your personal fault or your company's, but) which greatly annoys me.

You're right. We can only sell a product in the regions where the publisher has given us rights to sell. Sorry about that!

Bummer. I can't buy it either, in Canada. :-(

This is why I am so thankful for Amazon Kindle. I can buy any book at any time with them. 

It is absolutely beyond ridiculous that books are Region Restricted.

My guess is that you are making purchases from country specific Kindle stores, so the "region restrictions" still apply... it is just that Amazon happens to have a store that is able to sell you the book.

yep, that's generally the case. The Region Restriction applies to Amazon as well - and for this specific book, there's no kindle version available over here, either.
