Advent Giveaway: Day 20

Two more chances (today and Wednesday) to win Counterfeit Gospels and Prayers for Today.

Thanks to Moody Publishers for supplying our plunder! For all sorts of cool behind-the-scenes stuff that goes on at their publishing company, visit Moody's blog, Inside Pages.

Counterfeit Gospels: Rediscovering the Good News in a World of False Hope by Trevin Wax.

From the publisher's description: The gospel is like a three-legged stool. There's the Gospel Story - the grand narrative of Scripture (Creation, Fall, Redemption, Restoration). Within that overarching framework, we make the Gospel Announcement about Jesus Christ (His perfect life, substitutionary death, resurrection, exaltation). The gospel announcement then births the Gospel Community God's church - the embodiment of the gospel, the manifestation of God's kingdom. A counterfeit gospel is like a colony of termites, eating away at one of the legs of this stool until the whole thing topples over. This book exposes six common counterfeits (Therapeutic, Judgmentless, Moralist, Quietist, Activist, and Churchless) that would get us off track.

(Trevin's got a little video at WTSbooks.com. Watch it already.)

Publisher's description of Prayers for Today by Kurt Bjorklund: A collection of classic and contemporary prayers, some derived from Scripture and others from the writings of Christian leaders throughout the centuries, this beautiful volume invites readers into a daily experience of closer intimacy with God. With 260 entries—enough for every weekday of an entire year—Prayers for Today guides readers through a unique kind of spiritual pilgrimage, a pilgrimage toward the very throne room of God. For any reader who's ever wanted more out of prayer or who's ever hungered for a greater sense of God's presence, Prayers for Today promises deepened communion with the One who treasures the words and longings of His people.

A gift card or cash seems best to me.

Something from the heart... PPFFFFF... hahaha... I can't even say it with a straight face.

An obvious labor of love. Or a book.

A thoughtful gift that shows that person I noticed them that year. (Like an artifact or something that triggers their memory back to a special moment earlier in the year.)

Seems like with the person who "has everything," the thought counts more than the price tag.
