Review (and Giveaway) of ESV Scripture Old Testament Journal Set

When our pastor began to preach through the Gospel of Luke last year, we encouraged church members to purchase the Luke volume from the ESV Scripture New Testament Journal Set. I’ve heard from many who have enjoyed using it, not only for sermon notes but for personal study and journaling.

So, I was excited when Crossway announced the publication of the entire Old Testament journal set. I am especially grateful they sent me a full set to review—and a complete set to giveaway (see below). Continue reading “Review (and Giveaway) of ESV Scripture Old Testament Journal Set”

ESV Reader’s Bible — Review & Giveaway

Struggling to read the Bible with consistency, enthusiasm, and understanding is common for Christians. But given the expectation that we read it regularly, it can be a difficult struggle to confess. I found the 6-Volume ESV Readers Bible to be a great help. I think it could help you too.

Not Your White Male Church Guy’s Top Ten List Giveaway

OK. So, yes, I am a “white male church guy.” And, yes, this is my giveaway. But the top ten list isn’t mine!

Earlier this month, Lore Ferguson Wilbert (one of my favorite bloggers and social media follows) posted her (snarkily named) “Not Your White Male Church Guy’s Top Ten List.” She describes it as “my top ten books by women this year with the assurance that these are actually my top ten books this year—and not just a conciliatory nod toward my own gender.” (Go follow Lore on her website, Twitter, Insta, and Facebook.)

I have great faith in Lore’s reading recommendations and so immediately decided to make this my personal reading list and my January giveaway (I decided to steal the snarky name). So I added Lore’s bonus mention and one of my favorite books of 2018 to round out the list to 12. One winner will receive the entire list. I’m adding four runner-up prizes so that a few others can take something home. (See the list and entry form below.)

But before we get to entering there’s something even more exciting… Continue reading “Not Your White Male Church Guy’s Top Ten List Giveaway”
