Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays

Another Friday, but a slightly different one for me. I am spending the day with the other elders at Grace Fellowship Church and together we are praying for our church and planning how we can lead it in the months and years to come. Good times!

But meanwhile, I’ve got another great giveaway for you. This week’s sponsor is CBD Reformed, a company you know well by now. They are offering 5 prizes, each of which will consist of the following 3 books:

  • Counterfeit Gods by Timothy Keller – Retail price $19.95
  • The Westminister Theological Wordbook of the Bible – Retail price $39.95
  • The Cross-Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney – Retail price $9.99


I suppose you know about Mahaney’s and Keller’s books, but the other looks interesting as well. “Biblical words and phrases often appear deceptively simple, yet conceal layers of history, meaning, and cultural significance. This enlightening resource takes you to the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek roots of many key terms: ‘Justice’, ‘Son of Man,’ ‘Resurrection,’ ‘Kingdom of God,’ and explains the profound theological and ethical concepts behind the words they embody.”

They are also offering a 4-day sale (September 24-27) on these books. This sale is open to anyone who cares to take advantage of it. Those Henry commentaries for $30 look like a pretty good deal!

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.
