Advent Giveaway: Day 5


Today, with a huge thanks to Moody Publishers, we're giving away two books to one lucky winner.For all sorts of cool behind-the-scenes stuff that goes on at their publishing company, visit Moody's blog, Inside Pages.

The first book is Counterfeit Gospels: Rediscovering the Good News in a World of False Hope by Trevin Wax. I have just begun reading this book myself, so there will be a review coming soon to the CIC blog!

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.

(There's actually a book trailer at WTSbooks.com if you're interested in hearing about it directly from Trevin).

The second book is Prayers for Today by Kurt Bjorklund.

Publisher's description: 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.

Advent Reflection
    “Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely. And this is the name by which it will be called: ‘The LORD is our righteousness.’
    “For thus says the LORD: David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel, and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man in my presence to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings, and to make sacrifices forever.”
(Jeremiah 33:14-18 ESV)

You're all in the right place, stick around for a lot more books, and we're finishing up our Advent Giveaway with an ESV Study Bible on Christmas Eve!

David,

I got one of those personal library embossers for Christmas last year. For the book lover, I can't think of a more unique or better gift. I loved it so much I got one for my dad on his birthday this year. Big fan.
