The Challies Dot Com Contest

You know what this site needs? It needs a contest…

To that end, I am going to be giving away 3 signed, hardcover copies of Bill Perkin’s newest book Six Battles Every Man Must Win, which goes on sale today (See it at Amazon). I reviewed this book on March 22 and can testify it is a great read.

The contest rules are simple. All you need to do is send me an email with the reason you should win this contest. Prizes will be awarded for the funniest, the most original and the most pathetic entry. Now please, when I say pathetic I don’t want to hear about your best friend dying and you losing your job when you’re two months away from drawing your pension. Make it funny. As a matter of fact, don’t even feel constrained by truth – just go ahead and make something up. You may enter twice (two separate emails, please), but may only win in one category. Entries do not need to be long. As a matter of fact, keeping them short is probably a good thing…

As an added bonus, you can have the book signed either to yourself or to someone else if you wish to give it away as a gift. You can even have Bill sign it to himself and then say you stole his personal copy.

Please feel free to tell your friends, neighbours, family and pets about this contest. And ladies, though this book is targetted at men, it would make a great gift for that special someone in your life. If you don’t have a special someone, you can just sell the book on eBay.

The contest begins immediately and will end Wednesday, April 7 at 11:59 PM. Winners will be announced the next day and will be contacted via email. So, send along your entries!

    God’s Goodness in a Cruel World

    There is much to love and appreciate about our God, much for which we ought to give him praise and thanks. One of the attributes we may consider too seldom is his goodness, and as an aspect or component of his goodness, his kindness. And that is the subject of
