The Great Book Giveaway!

Recently I’ve had the opportunity to give readers some (in my opinion) pretty fantastic books—and this week, I wanted to up the ante a bit!

So this week, I’m giving away two sets of books, featuring the following:

  1. Recovering the Real Lost Gospel: Reclaiming the Gospel as Good News by Darrell L. Bock
  2. Reverberation: How God’s Word Brings Light, Freedom, and Action to His People by Jonathan Leeman
  3. Collected Writings on Scripture by D.A. Carson

These books are sure to be a great blessing to any reader. And with Fathers’ Day coming up, they’re bound to make a great gift for the Scripture-loving Pastor Dad in your life! You can enter the giveaway using the handy-dandy PunchTab widget below. With all that out of the way, have at it and good luck!

    My favorite memories are my recent memories.  When I became the Pastor of the small church that my father attends, I have seen him really start to grow as a Christian and open up about different things… and actually tell me… how he… …feels. :)

    It is either that, or when he made me get on the handle bars of his 10-speed on the way back from a little-league game and I got my shoe laces caught in the spokes and went face-first off the front of the bike. 

    Good times.

    My dad worked as a cook on cargo ships. When I was young and the ship he was working on was in port I would sometimes travel to work with him and spend the day being ‘at work with dad’.

    Wow – this is a lot harder than I thought it would be. When I was 10-14 my Dad and I used to do short cycle tours, and I have a lot of happy memories from those.

    As a kid my dad and I would spend weekends in the summer and fall building model rockets and launching them in a field behind my grandpas house

  • Chris Lewis

    Simply spending time with him, going with him wherever he went as a child.

    My favorite memory of my dad is when he checked me out of school to go see a movie. I had a doctors appointment. He has a Ph.D. ;)

  • Susan Wheeler

    He taught me to play softball.  He even became a coach to be involved with me.  I was terrible at it. But  that didn’t stop him or let me just give up, he would get outside every day after work and work with me. I’ll never forget that.

  • Craig Benno

    My favourite memory is while watching him drive the car from the back seat and he gave me a wink in the rear view mirror.

    One of my favorite memories of my dad was of him coaching my team in little league baseball.

    Two words.  Bottle Rockets.  Loved it when he would bring them home from a trip and we would shoot them off!

    My favourite memory of my dad is when he led my to Christ when I was 4 years old. He had become a Christian and changed dramatically.. One day, he was tucking me into bed and I asked him, “Daddy, what happened to you?”

    He told me about Jesus and how Jesus had changed his life.

    I said, “Daddy, can I have Jesus, too?” and so my dad knelt beside my bed and prayed with me.

    That is my favourite memory of my daddy. <3

    My dad used to break and train horses for other people and he would let me help. I got to be the first person to sit on their back. He would set me up there and walk around with me. I learned my love of (and not to fear) horses when I was very young. It was a difficult thing for my dad to give up riding when he got older. Sorta miss those days now that I am a city girl.

    One of my favorite memories of my Dad is when he built our treehouse in the backyard. I said I was a big help because I’d eaten a pear that day, which endowed me with great strength for a six year old.

    One summer we spent every weekend at the beach with my dad’s cousin.  My dad made sure we had fun doing all the same things he did at the beach with his dad.  I appreciate the efforts he made to care and teach me and share his life with me.

    I think my favorite memory of my dad is when I scored my lone touchdown playing football and he was there to see it. He often worked two jobs and at times had to miss such things. So it was special that he was there to witness it.

    My favorite memory of my dad was that he always made sure we were taking care of.  He would put extra money in our wallets without our knowledge.  He even told me that my brother and I were meeting Steven Curtis Chapman backstage even though it was suppose to be a surprise.  He always made sure we got the best cars he could afford and made sure I was taken care while at college.

    When I moved to Bowie, Tx he and I were in the U-haul together and did not rest until everything was put in its proper place.

    One theological truth my dad taught me was:  If there is one thing in the Bible you do not believe in or agree with, you do not believe in the Bible at all.

  • Doug

    Growing up my dad and I would play a game while driving somewhere; “What would you rather have?”. Example: What would you rather have, a brand new 20″ b&w tv, or a 10 year old 15″ color tv?  And why?

    Many good memories from that. It taught me beginning levels of how to think and consider many points of view.  Also, how to defend one’s conclusions.  Plus it gave me lots of early insight into how my dad thought and viewed life.

    My Dad was a man, A Sgt Major in the Army, a woodshop teacher, sunday school teacher and has literally given the shirt off of his back. Although as a child I loved getting his leftover MREs from the Army, my most valuable memory of him was his selfless care for elderly in our home church, building handicap ramps on weekends, going to an older widow lady’s home change 2 light bulbs and stay for coffee. When the world was rushing out the door and leaving the congregation behind at 12:00 on Sunday thats when my Dad’s mission began. Because my father cared for the elderly selflessly and honoring God alone in doing it, I gained more from that observation than any ballgame, camping trip or trip to the farm.

    Alrighty then:
    First, there is a huge blank area where “the handy-dandy PunchTab widget below” was supposed to be, so I guess god doesn’t want me to win the books. 
    Second, what would be your scriptural warrant for wishing me (or anyone) “good luck”?
    It’s OK, Bro– I love you and appreciate your work anyway!  ;)

      Next time I’ll say, “May God have providentially determined that you win.” :) 

      As for not being able to see it, not sure what’s up with that – When I first installed it, I had to refresh to see it, but it’s shown up every time since (and on multiple computers at that).

    I honestly think my favourite memory of my dad is the times when you used to sing to me at bedtime. I can still remember the words of entire songs, even though it was nearly 40 years ago. I wonder how my kids will answer this question in years to come?

    I can’t pinpoint one favorite memory. I remember sailing in the Gulf of Mexico as a boy. I remember many other activities we shared together. But right now, just sitting together, watching tv, talking, debating, and being together are the fondest memories.

    I would love to have a great memory of my father but i grew up not knowing who or what my father looks like. But a good memory of the father figure in my life was when he took me and my best friend which is his son to a father son retreat. We competed against other fathers and sons and just got to hang out in the mountains. It was a great time!

    My dad has given me memory after memory of support and encouragment. If there is one memory he will leave with me, a legacy if you will, is of him supporting me whether he always agreed or not.

    didn’t realize that clicking “done” on the twitter thing would say that I put it on twitter because I don’t have a twitter… in retrospect clicking on ‘skip’ seems more logical… oh well. I  now have an illegitimate entry. I’m sorry. I am going to share this on facebook though. 

    I don’t have many good memories of my dad, but thinking just now I remembered one. My brother and I were on visitation and I was just starting band in 5th grade. After much searching on instruments I decided to play trumpet and my dad bought me my trumpet. After he bought it we went back to his apartment and he taught me how to play my concert B flat scale. It was a good time because he always loved music. Thanks for making me think Aaron :)

    Favourite memory of my dad?  its not a single one, but a consistency in character.  The right advice when needed, suffering rightly when life does not go as planned, waiting on the Lord in difficult times, and the Theological “arguments/discussions” that my parents had.
