Free Stuff Fridays
January 20, 2012
This week’s Free Stuff Friday is a little bit different, and I like it that way. It is sponsored by Reformation Heritage Books and William Boekestein who has authored Faithfulness Under Fire: The Story of Guido de Bres and The Quest for Comfort: The Story of the Heidelberg Catechism.
Here are the prizes this week:
- Two winners will receive a copy of Faithfulness under Fire and a print from the book (the stained glass window scene)
- Three winners will receive a copy of The Quest for Comfort and a print from the book (the printing press scene).
The prints are archive-quality and measure 11” x 17”.
Here is a description of The Quest for Comfort: “The Heidelberg Catechism has been taught to children for hundreds of years, encouraging them to seek Christ as their true source of comfort. But how did this catechism get written? In The Quest for Comfort, William Boekestein and Evan Hughes combine history and art to retell the events that led to making the catechism. By sharing the stories of Caspar Olevianus, Zacharias Ursinus, and Frederick III and how they came to Heidelberg, children will gain a greater appreciation of the Christian faith as it is expressed in the Heidelberg Catechism.” The books are beautifully illustrated and perfect for young readers.
Giveaway Rules: You may only enter the draw once. Simply fill out your name and email address to enter the draw. As soon as the winners have been chosen, all names and addresses will be immediately and permanently erased. Winners will be notified by email. The giveaway closes Saturday at noon.
