Buy My Book and Win!

Articles Collection cover image

Buy my book and win $100. Just like that…

The Discipline of Spiritual DiscernmentIt has been a few weeks now since my book became available for pre-order. I offer my thanks to the hundreds of you who have been kind enough to order a copy (and special thanks to Aileen who volunteered to take on the task of organizing all of the orders—putting them into a spreadsheet and printing up address labels. She spoils me.). I’m looking forward to getting all of those books signed and sent and on the way! It won’t be long now…

There are just a few weeks left before the pre-order period is going to end. At that point I’m going to need to tell the publisher how many copies to send to me when I’m down in Chattanooga for a conference at the end of the year. So your opportunity to pre-order a signed copy is quickly coming to an end.

I know there are a few people who are holding back. They are planning to buy the book, but not quite yet. To give some incentive to these people, I’m offering a special deal for the next seven days. Every person who buys a copy of the book before the end of the day on November 26 will have the opportunity to win a $100 gift certificate for Westminster Books (Do note that, at the moment, Westminster ships only to U.S. addresses. Feel free to write them and register your discontent with this policy if you live outside the States. Demand your right to good books at low prices!).

For each copy of my book you buy you will be given one ballot and at the end one person will take home a $100 gift certificate which will be sent to you in time for you to use it for Christmas shopping. As a consolation gift (and a pretty good one at that), I’ll add in a copy of The Literary Study Bible for a second place winner. I’m happy to ship this Bible anywhere, so non-U.S. residents can still win something!

I don’t expect thousands of people to jump at this offer. Therefore, those who do take it are going to have pretty good odds of winning that gift certificate. So what are you waiting for?

You can learn about the book, read the endorsements, and buy it right here.

Buy It!

Make it a Gift

Some readers have asked if the book will be available on time for them to give as a Christmas gift. Unfortunately, it will not. However, if you would like to make a gift of it, I can offer you a card you can print and give to your loved one(s). The card will say something to the effect that you’ve got the book on order and that it will arrive (signed by the author!) very shortly after Christmas Day.

    Redeeming Sex in Marriage

    Surely few things in this world are more mysterious than sex. Surely few things give such clear evidence that there must be more to them than the sum of their parts. On the one level, sex is a simple biological function that exists to populate the earth with human beings. On the other level, it…

  • Why Do I Feel Such Profound Loneliness?

    This week the blog is sponsored by Moody Publishers and is written by Steve DeWitt. The story of human loneliness has its roots in the character of God and God’s purpose in creating us.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created…

    Stop Swiping, Start Serving

    I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that in the past few weeks, you have probably not gotten rip-roaring drunk nor participated in a debauched drinking party. You have probably not given yourself over to rampant sexual immorality or a life obsessed with sensuality. At least, I hope not
