RECORD SALE OF RELIGIOUS ITEMS

Christian Bookstores Meet Growing Demand

A growing number of Americans are turning toward their faith in the wake of the September 11th terrorist attack.

Christian bookstores have reported brisk sales of bibles and religious books since the tragedy. National surveys find many Americans are searching for spiritual answers about what happened.

The coast's newest Christian bookstore and gift shop held its dedication Friday at the Crossroads Shopping Center.

The store's manager says she's expecting sales will stay strong.

"We bring lots of resources to help Christians and churches grow in their ministry and help meet people's needs. That's what we're here for," said Alicia Lowery.

LifeWay Christian stores is a national chain. The new Gulfport store is the first one on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
