The Great October Giveaway

Forty-one books to the winner…

Last month’s Great September Giveaway was a great success with three readers taking home some excellent prizes. Of course I extend my sympathies to the multitudes who didn’t win; I can identify with your disappointment since I don’t think I’ve ever won anything in my life! But I am confident that my time is coming.

This month you’ve got another chance to win a great prize. Or forty-one of them to be exact.

The Sponsor

Reformation TrustFirst, a word about sponsors. Each of these giveaways is sponsored by a different ministry or a Christian company. I’d ask that you express your gratitude to these sponsors by clicking through to their sites and looking around. All of them have something interesting to offer. By clicking to their sites you support them and you support these giveaways.

This month’s sponsor is Ligonier Ministries. And really, what can I say about Ligonier? It is, of course, a ministry based upon the teaching of R.C. Sproul. It was established in 1971 to equip Christians to articulate what they believe and why they believe it. And it has been doing that faithfully ever since. Dr. Sproul’s most recent book, The Truth of the Cross is ideal for both personal growth and for evangelism. To that end Ligonier is offering it at a volume discount (‘spread-the-word’ pricing) when purchased through their site.

Buy 1–––––––—$15
Buy 2-5–––––––$12 each
Buy 6-39––––––-$9.75 each
Buy a case of 40–––-$6.75 each
Buy two or more cases—$5.25 each

The Prizes

I’ve got some amazing prizes to offer this time around. As with the last giveaway there will be three winners.

  • First prize: One case (Forty copies!) of The Truth of the Cross by R.C. Sproul along with a copy of Jesus the Evangelist by Richard Phillips (that’s a retail value of over $600!). The forty books are not to be sold, but are to be given away or used for evangelism. Just think what you could do with forty of them. That’s ten for people in the church, ten for family members, ten for Christmas gifts and ten to hold on to for just the right moment.
  • Second prize: One copy of Jesus the Evangelist by Richard Phillips and admission for two to the Ligonier Ministries 2008 National Conference, Evangelism According to Jesus.
  • Third Prize: One copy of Jesus the Evangelist by Richard Phillips and admission for two to the Ligonier Ministries 2008 National Conference, Evangelism According to Jesus.

Note: If the second or third prize winners are unable to attend the 2008 National Conference, they may substitute admission for two to The Cross of Christ Regional Conference in Dallas/Fort Worth (November 2-3, 2007) OR any two books published by Reformation Trust.

Small Print

As with previous giveaways, you can increase your chances of winning by referring others. Details and other smallish print is available in the contest area. I recommend you read it. Last time a potential winner forfeited the prize because he did not join the mailing list!
