Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays

Yesterday I took a trip across the continent, journeying from Toronto to Los Angeles. I am here in L.A. to speak at a conference a bit later on in the day. I’ve decided to try not to adjust to the time change and, therefore, am going to bed ridiculously early and getting up ridiculously early. Of course it probably won’t much matter in the end since I am taking the red-eye home. Nevertheless, I caught myself mumbling a little bit yesterday, complaining about the length of the flight which clocked in at just over five hours. And then I realized that I was traveling 2500 miles in five hours and that any complaining about such a fact just proved me to be an idiot. I repented and enjoyed the flight which, come to think of it, seemed like just about the fastest five hour flight I’ve ever sat through.

I digress. Today is Friday both here and at home and that means it’s time for another Free Stuff Fridays. And this week we’ve got a good one. It is sponsored by Eternal Perspectives Ministries. Eternal Perspective Ministries is a Bible-believing Christ-centered nonprofit organization with two goals: to teach the principles of God’s Word, emphasizing an eternal viewpoint; to reach the needy in Christ’s name, calling attention to the needs of the unreached, unfed, unsupported, unborn, unreconciled and untrained. It is headed, as you may know, by Randy Alcorn whose books you may well have run into in the past.

If God Is Good by Randy Alcorn

This week I’ve got five prizes to give away. Each prize is a signed copy of Alcorn’s latest book, If God Is Good. This book is actually not even on sale yet as the street date is next Tuesday. It is a nice big 500-page hardcover that provides a very thorough look at what the Bible teaches about evil and suffering. I’ve already read it through and highly recommend it (and, in fact, will print a review of it next week). Here is what the publisher says about the book: “In this captivating new book, best-selling author Randy Alcorn challenges the logic of disbelief, and brings a fresh, realistic, and thoroughly biblical insight to the issues these important questions raise. Alcorn offers insights from his conversations with men and women whose lives have been torn apart by suffering, and yet whose faith in God burns brighter than ever. He reveals the big picture of who God is and what God is doing in the world–now and forever. And he equips you to share your faith more clearly and genuinely in this world of pain and fear.”

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.
