Free Stuff Fridays

After a week off, it is time for a new edition of Free Stuff Fridays. As this week’s giveaway is sponsored by Southern Baptist Theological Seminary it will come as no surprise that the prize is a book by Dr. Albert Mohler. They are giving away five copies of He Is Not Silent, a book that deals with preaching in a postmodern world. Here is what I said in my review: “This is the third book from the pen of Dr. Mohler we’ve seen in 2008. In my view, it is the best (at least of the three I have read to this point). Though Mohler aptly addressed culture and new atheism in his previous two titles, there is a new kind of passion in this book. Mohler calls for the ‘re-centering’ of an element of worship that has been pushed to the periphery. He does so with confidence based on Scripture and in a way that can appeal to any reader. Buy it, read it, and while you are at it, buy a copy for your pastor.”

Here is what the publisher says about this book: “Preaching the practice of publicly expositing the Bible has fallen on hard times. How did this happen? After all, as John A. Broadus famously remarked, ‘Preaching is characteristic of Christianity.’ In this powerful book, He Is Not Silent: Preaching in a Postmodern World, Mohler shows us how. In a style both commanding and encouraging, Mohler lays the groundwork for preaching, fans the flame on the glory of preaching, and calls out with an urgent need for preaching. This message is desperately needed yet not often heard. Whether you’re concerned or enthused by the state of the church today, join Mohler as he examines preaching and why the church can’t survive without it.”

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.

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
