Advent Giveaway: Day 7

Today, many thanks to Shepherd Press, we are giving away one copy of Red Like Blood by Joe Coffey and Bob Bevington. It's got the autobiographical (and humorous) touch of Blue Like Jazz, the reformed treatment of Driscoll or Piper, and the brutal honesty of a recovery group.

Publisher's Description: At its heart, Red Like Blood is the over-arching story of the Bible, the story of salvation: the amazing grace of God in Jesus Christ impacting our brokenness, drenching us in forgiveness and mercy. It is told through the lives of two men a prodigal and a pastor's kid whose broken lives are forever stained the color of grace as they are confronted by the One who meets them in their hopelessness and despair, bringing redemption and healing. Red Like Blood chronicles the power of the gospel in all of its life-changing fullness. It is a story that should challenge, encourage and empower us all.

If you'd like to hear right from Joe Coffey about the book, there's a book trailer at

Advent Reflection 

     But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,
        who are too little to be among the clans of Judah,
    from you shall come forth for me
        one who is to be ruler in Israel,
    whose coming forth is from of old,
        from ancient days.
    Therefore he shall give them up until the time
        when she who is in labor has given birth;
    then the rest of his brothers shall return
        to the people of Israel.
    And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD,
        in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God.
    And they shall dwell secure, for now he shall be great
        to the ends of the earth.
    And he shall be their peace.
(Micah 5:2-5 ESV)

My most memorable gift would have to be my LEGO soccer field that was fairly large, along with the sets to make it a whole stadium!
