Free Stuff Fridays

I woke up feeling all gross and sick today so, for the first time in at least six months, I’m declaring a sick day. Rumor has it that there’s some ugly but short-lived flu making the rounds so maybe it’s got me. Between me and you, I’m actually kind of looking forward to the excuse to lie around for a day or two. I literally can’t even remember the last time I watched a movie, so I think I’m going to head for the basement and blow a couple of hours and a few brain cells doing that.

Anne BradstreetBut before I go and settle in with the requiste flat ginger ale, here is this week’s edition of Free Stuff Fridays. This week’s sponsor is Evangelical Press, whom you know as a publisher of excellent Christian books. They are offering five prize packages today, each of which will contain two great books by Faith Cook, one of the most prolific Christian biographers of our day: Anne Bradstreet, a brand new biography of the great American poet and Seeing the Invisible which offers 10 short looks at the extraordinary faith of ordinary believers.

In my review of Anne Bradstreet I wrote this: In this telling of the life of Anne Bradstreet, viewed primarily through the legacy of her poems, Faith Cook continues to prove herself one of today’s foremost Christian biographers. I highly recommend it. It really is a good book and a good, relatively short look at the life of an important figure.

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.

    It’s Easier to Tear Down than Build Up

    In my travels, I encountered a man whose work is demolition. When buildings are old and decrepit, or even when they just need to be removed to make way for others, his job is to destroy them and haul them away. New or old, big or small, plain or fancy—it makes no difference to him.…

  • Trusting Jesus in The Public Square 

    This week the blog is sponsored by Moody Publishers. Parents have a biblical responsibility to protect their children not only from physical harm but also from spiritual harm.

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager. Sports are exciting, they say, but even more exciting when you’ve got a bit of money riding on them. So why not enjoy them all…
