Free Stuff Fridays

This Friday seems to have come around really, really quickly. My math tells me that it’s come no faster than any other Friday. And yet…

Nevertheless, it is time for a new edition of Free Stuff Fridays. This week’s sponsor is Crossway, a company that will always mean a lot to me for being the one to take a chance on me as a first-time author.

The prize package they are offering features two great books that, even if you don’t want for your own purposes, you’ll want to win in order to give to someone else. The first is Church Planting Is For Wimps by Mike McKinley and the second is Church Planter by Darrin Patrick. McKinley’s book comes from IX Marks Ministries while Patrick’s comes from Acts29; both organizations are very involved in church planting and both of these titles come highly recommended.

Crossway Free Stuff

In Church Planter “The vice president of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network examines the biblical criteria of the man, the message, and the mission behind every church plant. An invaluable resource for both pastors and seminary students considering a church plant and for those seeking to better understand the gospel in their own churches.” Meanwhile, in Church Planting Is For Wimps, you’ll see that “the story of a church’s revitalization counters a common conception that a church’s size determines its health and points pastors to the faithful ministry of God’s Word.”

Though the books are on the same subject, they approach it from very different angles and complement one another well. Crossway is offering five prizes, each of which will contain both books.

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.

    February is typically a solid month for book releases, and this February was no exception.

    A Freak of Nature (and Nurture)

    We are probably so accustomed to seeing bonsai trees that we don’t think much about them. But have you ever paused to consider how strange and freakish they really are?
