Scripture Truth Book Company is a Christian book, Bible and merchandise retail business that was established in 1956 by M.V. Brodsky in Roanoke, Virginia. Mr. Brodsky founded the company to provide fellow believers with Christian merchandise at discounted prices - a need that first became evident to him during his days at Moody Bible Institute in the late 1930s and early 1940s.
After returning from military service in World War II, he and his family eventually moved to Roanoke, Virginia. Mr. Brodsky supported his growing family with several jobs in Roanoke, even as he continued to sell books part time. In 1956, after much prayer, he decided to devote all of his time to selling Bibles and books. The business moved to 35 Huff Road in Fincastle, Virginia in 1960, where it remained for nearly 6 decades before relocating to the current retail location at 458 Botetourt Road in Fincastle.
Initially the business occupied part of the basement of the family home. Most orders came through the annual catalog and a monthly product list that was mailed to subscribers. The business increased until it eventually required the entire basement, and later, with the family's children grown and a need for still more room, the main office was moved upstairs. When greater storage was needed, God graciously provided a warehouse in the town of Fincastle for Scripture Truth to buy. Two additions have been built to provide space for merchandise. In 2019, a portion of the warehouse space was converted to house the current retail location.
Three generations of the Brodsky family have been blessed to work together at Scripture Truth. In addition, we have had the privilege of working with many fine people over the years as the need for help has arisen.
It has been a joy to serve so many Christians for more than 6 decades. It is our prayer that our work has been a blessing to many, and that we have been in some small way, salt and light in this world. Some of our customers have become dear friends, many more have been an encouragement to us, and we are so thankful for each one.
M.V. Brodsky went to be with the Lord on January 23, 2007 at age 88. Our family continues to honor his original vision of providing believers with Christian materials at the lowest possible prices. We do our best to glorify God through the business Mr. Brodsky founded, and to select Christ-centered books that spread the gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
