How Does an "E-book" Differ from a Printed Book?

An "e-book" or "electronic book" is delivered or downloaded in electronic form and is not taxable. It is less expensive because our costs are lower. Many people read the e-book on their computer screen without printing it out. When you purchase the e-book, you'll receive a URL that you'll click on, initiating a download of the file onto your computer. Depending upon the speed of your connection and the size of the e-book, this can take a few seconds to many minutes to complete.

Printed books are produced when your order is received. Some of our books are sold directly by JesusWalk Publications, others must be ordered from Amazon or other booksellers.
