Ok, I’ve been staying at home a lot this summer with Sola and I haven’t had many encounters worth writing about. I’m going to be back on campus in a few weeks and until that time I’m going to take a break to think up new ideas for series of posts. To tide you over until then (assuming you need some tiding) I’m going to give away a prize pack!

Five Sacred Crossings by Craig Hazen – Craig is the director of the apologetics program at Biola (of which I am a proud alumnus) and has a great heart for the lost. In this book he weaves apologetics and culture together into a compelling narrative. It’s a fast-paced read and worth the effort. Terrorists, ancient languages, apologetics…what could go wrong?

Why I am a Christian by John Stott – A true hero of the faith recounts simply and powerfully what convinces him about Jesus. A good read for mature Christians or interested skeptics.

Telling the Gospel Through Story by Christine Dillon – Dillon believes Bible storytelling has been more effective in her context as a church planter than traditional forms of evangelism and apologetics. She uses the book to expound on this hypothesis and then teach the reader how to incorporate stories (both biblical and personal) into their conversations.

Does God Exist? (DVD) – This is a video of the 2009 debate between William Lane Craig and the late Christopher Hitchens. Classic debate format and great content. (SPOILER ALERT: I think Craig comes out ahead)

All your dreams can come true!

How do I enter this amazing contest, you may ask? Open this link in a new tab or window (normally there would be a widget, but wordpress and rafflecopter aren’t friends yet):

a Rafflecopter giveaway  <— click this thing

**UPDATE: The Rafflecopter thing is confusing some folks so I have a screenshot to better explain what to do.

Step 1, open the link that says “a Rafflecopter giveaway” in a new tab or window (some of the entries require you to do things on this blog – a new tab will make it easier)

Step 2, log in through facebook

Step 3, start entering

Step 4 – the IMPORTANT ONE:

In the above example, once you post a link on facebook you need to manually click “enter” to receive credit.

Ok thats it…game on!

UPDATE #2: even if you share via the buttons on this page (facebook and twitter) you still need to open the rafflecopter link to be credited with entries into the contest.

    I did enter through the Raffecopter, but I don’t think it is working. I did share this on Facebook and twitter this and share this on Google+. I did subscribe to get email from your blog.

      I am now following you on Twitter. I don’t find the fan page or you on Facebook though!

        yeah – no fan page exists so far. I looked at the moderator’s page for the contest and you have all 11 entries! Thanks so much!

    Intrigued to see you were giving my book away as a prize. Would love you to write a book review of it on the IVP website and elsewhere. Blessings on you.
