Spearhead: An American Tank Gunner, His Enemy, and a Collision of Lives In World War II 10 Copies 12/1

Win 1 of 10 copies of the award-winning book: Spearhead: An American Tank Gunner, His Enemy, and a Collision of Lives in World War II by Adam Makos.

From the publisher:"When Clarence Smoyer is assigned to the gunner’s seat of his Sherman tank, his crewmates discover that the gentle giant from Pennsylvania has a hidden talent: He’s a natural-born shooter.

At first, Clarence and his fellow crews in the legendary 3rd Armored Division—“Spearhead”—thought their tanks were invincible. Then they met the German Panther, with a gun so murderous it could shoot through one Sherman and into the next. Soon a pattern emerged: The lead tank always gets hit.

After Clarence sees his friends cut down breaching the West Wall and holding the line in the Battle of the Bulge, he and his crew are given a weapon with the power to avenge their fallen brothers: the Pershing, a state-of-the-art “super tank,” one of twenty in the European theater.

But with it comes a harrowing new responsibility: Now they wil…

Win $1250 worth of books about the Apostle Paul! (Giveaway)

Tripp Fuller is giving away $1250 dollars worth of books about the Apostle Paul.  From the Tripp Fuller Site:Paul’s letter to Romans is arguably the most influential piece of postal in history. Not only does it represent the heart of Paul’s own understanding of the Christian gospel, but it has been fertile ground for the church’s on-going theological reflection. In the past hundred years our knowledge of the text and its historical setting has dramatically changed. There is no longer a single clear road through Romans, but many Roman roads.

For this giveaway we are partnering with our friends at Presence to give our winner a ginormous collection of contemporary scholarship on Paul and debate surrounding his infamous letter to the Romans.

The Grand Prize includes these 25 essential texts…

Heaven Misplaced: Christ's Kingdom on Earth by Douglas Wilson (Free)

Heaven Misplaced: Christ's Kingdom on Earth by Douglas Wilson is free for Kindle format (through 11/26/19).
From the publisher:Though most Christians refrain from predicting exactly when our world will end, many believe that when earth's finale does arrive, it will be a catastrophe. They expect that before Christ comes back to reclaim His own, Satan will escape his chains and return to wreak havoc on our planet. Details vary, but the general assumption is the same: things will get much, much worse before they get better.

But is this really what the Bible teaches?

Leaving aside the theological terms that often confuse and muddle this question, Douglas Wilson instead explains eschatology as the end of the greatest story in the world -- the story of mankind. He turns our attention back to the stories and prophecies of Scripture and argues for "hopeful optimism": the belief that God will be true to His promises, that His will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven, and t…

Englewood Book Review is giving away five copies of  An On-Going Imagination: A Conversation about Scripture, Faith, and the Thickness of Relationship by Walter Brueggemann and Clover Reuter Beal. From the publisher: "Biblical scholar Walter Brueggemann has always excelled at making the Bible approachable and engaging. Drawn from a series of public conversations with Brueggemann and his former student and longtime friend Clover Reuter Beal, An On-Going Imagination explores Brueggemann’s most influential biblical-theological concepts and methods: Why should we still bother with the Bible today? What is the purpose of prayer, and what can it do for our lives? How is keeping the Sabbath countercultural? What does it mean to say that the God in the Bible is “a God in recovery”?

Intimate, provocative, and challenging, An On-Going Imagination offers an enlightening introduction to Brueggemann’s work for readers who want to learn more and a way back into the Bible for people who feel ali…

American Rebels by Nina Sankovitch (Giveaway)

Good Reads is giving away 100 copies of American Rebels: How the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy Families Fanned the Flames of Revolution by Nina Sankovitch

From the publisher:"Everyone recognizes John Hancock's signature at the bottom of the Declaration of Independence but Nina Sankovitch's American Rebels explores for the first time the family and community connections that led to it. Sankovitch examines the intertwined lives of John Hancock, John Adams, Josiah Quincy Jr, Abigail Smith Adams, and Dorothy Quincy Hancock, and argues for the distinct roles each played in fomenting revolution. Their trajectory from loyal British subjects to American rebels was forged in childhood; and their deeply held convictions, founded in community, fueled their collaborations during the fraught and violent years leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence in July of 1776. Sankovitch presents in vivid detail, backed up by extensive and new research, the ties that bound these…

When God Makes Us Wait - Acts 23:12-35; 24 (Sermon)

WELCOME Hi, I am Pastor Rob, and it is a joy and honor to share with you today.
WAITING Have you ever had this experience? My kids like ketchup. Some like it too much. They get it honestly. Do you remember that Heinz 57 commercial, with the tagline “good things, come to those who wait”? Do you remember that? I do. Is that true?

I remember as a teenager and twenty-something wanting to date. I didn’t want to be single. I wanted to get married. I think if you were one of my friends at the time, I was a broken record in my prayer requests. “God, help me be content. Please help me find a wife. Help me.” The little old ladies at my church were praying for me and offering a few suggestions. It worked, although I had to wait. The commercial came true for me.

What if the waiting was longer than you like? What if you had to suffer while you waited? What if what you are waiting for was not good or didn’t look good?

Today, we come back to the story of Acts, where we heard about a good thing comi…
