Lifeway Christian Bookstores dropped a biblical bombshell yesterday when it announced that it would be closing every one of its 170 nationwide stores in a bid to cut costs.

According to USA Today, Lifeway is the latest retail location to decide closing up shop is the best course of business, but the long-time good-book seller isn't out of the game entirely.  The silver lining? - Lifeway Christian Bookstores will still operate as an online store.  So, even if we lose the tradition of taking our kids there to pick out their first bible - we can now start a new tradition of picking it out in the comfort of your own home via there online store.
