A New Blog Demands a Book Giveaway - Updated

****
UPDATE:

We really want to thank everyone for the interest in the giveaway.  There are 45 entries so far.  If you want to enter, we are thrilled, but we need some kind of identifying mark for the purposes of the draw.  Currently, in the comments there are two who have identified themselves as "unknown."  There were no email addresses left, so if one of those two names is drawn, we have no way of knowing who she is.    Please, please, do submit an entry, but if you don't want to leave an e-mail address, do indicate some sort of name just for the purposes of the draw.  I will announce this early on Monday morning before the Monday post goes up, and I will be asking for an e-mail address so I can get an address.

Thanks so much for your interest.  It has been so humbling and exciting for us here to be welcomed so warmly.

While our "official" first post will be on Wednesday, today, we are announcing a book giveaway this week in honor of the start of Out of the Ordinary.

A lucky reader will get a copy of Keri Folmar's book Joy! which is a study on the book of Philippians.  It is one of Cruciform's latest releases.

The reviews are excellent, and I can say as one who has this book, the fact that it is spiral bound is one of the first things I liked about it.  The book is a ten week inductive study and can be written in as a journal.  Each week has five days of study.  The beginning also has some very useful introductory notes about inductive bible study in general.

If you would like to receive a copy of this little gem, you have three ways of entering so.  First, leave a comment in this post; second send an e-mail by clicking on the "Site Admin" link on the sidebar; our email address is there.   Third, indicate your interest at our Facebook page by posting on our wall.   The draw will be open until Sunday, September 9, 2012, and the winner announced on the following Monday.

Please only Canadian and U.S. addresses.

  23. I found your blog through Domestic Kingdom, as well. Living for Him in Haiti, it is incredibly challenging to find good sources of spiritual feeding in addition to my personal time. This book, and your new blog, seem like a great way to find that additional "Solid Building" that I'm always seeking. Thank you!
