Urbana 12 Books

Is your soul going flabby around the middle? Do you want to change your culture? Are you passionate about the least of these? Don't worry, we've got a book for that.

Urbana 12 and InterVarsity Press are teaming up to bring you a bookstore of apostolic proportions. In fact, we have almost 1,000 relevant titles just waiting for you at the Urbana bookstore.

Books about:

  • missions
  • spiritual formation
  • justice
  • evangelism
  • leadership
  • discipleship
  • diversity
  • and more

The world's largest missions bookstore will be open December 28th through December 31st (Friday through Monday) between 1:00 and 6:30 pm for special Urbana discounts. All InterVarsity Press books are a miraculous 30-50% off! And this year, we're open around the clock, too, at!

Urbana World Market and Books of the Day

While you're perusing the bookshelves, be sure to check out the Urbana World Market where you can find handmade bags, t-shirts, scarves, journals and necklaces, all sold to build up creative businesses that employ women, reduce poverty and transform lives. So buy a shirt and transform a life. You know you want to.

Only got five bucks? Lucky you! The Urbana Books of the Day will be available at the bookstore all week for just $5.00 a book. A gallon of gas can cost more than that! Plus, buy a book and get the author's John Hancock at book signings in the bookstore throughout the week. (See your Urbana Today newspaper for more info.)
