Advent Giveaway: Day 14

Baker Books is our generous sponsor yet again today (after all, this is Baker Books week). And today we're giving away two more books:

The Gospel Commission by Michael Horton and Everyday Prayers by Scotty Smith

Publisher's Description: Are we really fulfilling Jesus's final command?

Many churches in America today want to be powerful, relevant, and influential in personal and social transformation. A plethora of programs for outreach, discipleship, and spiritual disciplines are available at any bookstore and on countless websites. Yet what we need most is a renewed understanding of and commitment to the Great Commission. We assume that we already know the nature of this commission and the appropriate methods of carrying it out.

But Michael Horton contends that it too often becomes our mission instead of God's. At a time when churches are zealously engaged in creating mission statements and strategic plans, he argues that we must ask ourselves anew whether we are ambassadors, following the script we've been given, or building our own kingdoms with our own blueprint.

Pastors and church leaders will value this frank and hopeful next-step exploration of the Great Commission as a call to renewed understanding and good practice.

Publisher's Description: How would life be different if we could think, see, and do all things in light of the person and work of Jesus? With this inspiring collection of 365 Scripture-centered prayers, Scotty Smith helps readers pray the Scriptures through the lens of the gospel, mining the resources of God's grace and applying them in every season of life. He frees readers to abandon any posing or pretending in favor of an honest, no-spin relationship with a God who claims them as his own.

Each day includes a Scripture reference and an inspirational original prayer, born from both moments of great faith and moments of crisis. Like a modern-day book of Psalms, Everyday Prayers is a year's worth of growing in grace that readers will lean on year after year.

I wasn't at first. Then I watched one of them and was utterly captivated. This group is WONDERFUL!! They are well worth taking the time to watch. I may have found my new favorite Christian music group!!

Sad to say that no I have not been watching them. I really didn't know what they were and I guess my curiosity didn't bother to let me figure it out :(
