Free Stuff Fridays

This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by Crossway, I name I know you’re familiar with (and, according to the survey results from a couple of weeks ago, the publisher you, the readers of this site, trust most).

Earlier in the week Crossway sponsored a post here, letting you know about four of their new books. Today they are giving away five prize packages, each of which contains all four of those titles. That means five winners will receive Surprised by Grace by Tullian Tchividjian, Rescuing Ambition by Dave Harvey, What Did You Expect? by Paul David Tripp and Doctrine by Mark Driscoll. That’s not a bad haul! And all you need to do for your chance to win is add your name and email address to the form below.

Crossway Books

If you’d like to learn more about any of these books, you can click here and find a brief description of each. After Crossway mentioned these four books I took a poll to see if you’d like me to read and review one of them. The poll results were clear: you want me to review Mark Driscoll’s Doctrine, so I’ll be sure to do that in the weeks ahead. I have heard lots of good things about it.

Here is what the publisher says about the book: “Doctrine is the word Christians use to define the truth-claims revealed in Holy Scripture. Of course there is a multitude of churches, church networks, and denominations, each with their own doctrinal statement with many points of disagreement. But while Christians disagree on a number of doctrines, there are key elements that cannot be denied by anyone claiming to be a follower of Jesus. In Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe, Driscoll and Breshears teach thirteen of these key elements. This meaty yet readable overview of basic doctrine will help Christians clarify and articulate their beliefs in accordance with the Bible.”

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.


  • Leadership

    We Need Qualified Leadership

    A few days ago I happened upon the page of an especially mega-sized megachurch. The church is about to undergo a leadership transition from an older man to a younger one and a page on the site lays out the process through which this new pastor was chosen. I read with a morbid kind of…

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
