Best Portland Area Christian Used Book Store

I am happy to dub Windows Booksellers the new best Christian used book store in Portland. Although Windows has been operating in Portland since 2002, I only found out about them on this visit when I began to look for an alternative to the now-defunct Pilgrim Discount. I came away with cheap copies of several classics:

Brown, Raymond E. New Testament Essays. Garden City: Doubleday, 1965.
Caird, G. B. The Gospel of St Luke. Harmondsworth: Penguin, 1963.
Davies, W. D. The Sermon on the Mount. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1966.
Hengel, Martin. Property and Riches in the Early Church: Aspects of a Social History of Early Christianity. Philadelphia: Fortress, 1974.
Keck, Leander E. Mandate to Witness: Studies in the Book of Acts. Valley Forge: Judson Press, 1964.
Minear, Paul S. To Heal And To Reveal: The Prophetic Vocation according to Luke. New York: Seabury Press, 1976.

But I am especially excited about the following two by the late C.F.D. Moule:
Moule, C. F. D. The Epistles of Paul the Apostle to the Colossians and to Philemon. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1962.
Moule, C. F. D. The Birth of the New Testament. 3rd ed. San Francisco: Harper & Row, 1982.

The first I plan to read as I teach Greek Exegesis this semester, the second I recall being mentioned in several Moule obituaries.

Windows Booksellers also has a very large store in Eugene, OR.
