Book Giveaway – Gospel Package!

Last month we had our first giveaway contest in which we gave away two books on apologetics.The good news is that I still have plenty of books laying around and it’s time for another giveaway!

The Gospel Package includes the following three gospel themed books which I have reviewed. Feel free to follow the links to read my reviews if you need help deciding whether to enter or not. As before,we will randomly select a winner from the comments. Anyone who comments on this post will be entered into the drawing and will have a chance to win the gospel package. You may comment as often as you wish but only one entry per person will be eligible. Entries close at 12 AM PDT and the winner will be announced via email and in a “winner announcement” post tomorrow.  If the prize isn’t claimed within seven (7) days an alternate winner will be selected and announced. I will make every effort to contact the winner using the information provided at entry.

  1. If you have already left an email in the past or if I have an alternate way of contacting you if you are the winner  (i.e real life or social media)  then you do not need to leave an email address.

    Yay! I missed the other one!

    I might as well enter too. As you know I’m not exactly Christian but should probably figure out what Christians really believe before making that final.

  6. I’m a huge fan of Trevin Wax and am starting to appreciate Bill Tell.

    The book by Wax looks good. Actually all three look like ones I’ll read eventually. But especially Counterfeit Gospels.

  11. Tim

    I want to enter in this contest. The gospel has been so big in my life. That reminds me as a side topic have you ever thought about a guest writer or maybe an interview with someone? I have a huge area of sin that I overcame through the gospel and want to get some warings and encouragement out. I’m not good at writing but maybe we can talk and work out a sort of interview for your readers to read between us?

    • Tim, I have your email. I’ll send you a message. I’m always open to things like this.

    There needs to be more books like these out there. There is so much that is just fluff and feel good type of literature. The gospel is the only true and Lasting feel good solution.

  19. Lenette

    Aaron! I’m so glad to see that you are still writing. I remember grading one of your essays and it bring me to tears. I always wondered where you ended up. Your theology has changed over the years! Dr. Clark turned me on to you here. Anyway, good to see you here. I know two of these three authors and have heard good things about the other. Now if I can just figure out how to register!

    • Wow good to hear from you too! I have your email. I’ll touch bases.

  36. Mason

    Is Hoping against Hope a Christian book? It seems like it has Christian themes but not really. How is it about gospel? Sorry for the questions. Entering anyway.

  37. Mason good question. Caputo writes from within the general framework of Christianity but it doesn’t resemble anything like classical Christianity. He is more of a post-Christian Deconstructionist.

    His approach to the gospel is ore of a distortion rather than a gospel true to the Biblical witness. However, his brand of gospel wasn’t addressed in the Trevin Wax book (probably because it isn’t a popular view) so I included it here with this group of books.

    He does emphasize the idea that we don’t participate in moral acts in an effort to try to please or satisfy God.. and he is correct there. However his solution is to divorce the moral act from God altogether. So he would say for example that love is virtuous apart from God and does not require God’s existence in order to be virtuous. This view of course ignores the Biblical teaching that God IS love. So love is necessarily virtuous because God is. Likewise, hate is evil because God is not hate. They derive their essential goodness or ‘evilness’ by virtue of their relation to God’s eternal character.

    The good takeaways? The idea that our motivation for doing good is not to somehow merit God’s favor. It isn’t and as long as we approach morality that way we live in both fear and self righteousness.

    The bad? Well.. the rest of the book.

    One of the things that I appreciated about the book is the insight into the postmodern Christian mind. Without metanarrative the postmodern is left to make sense of God without any sense of providence or future hope. History collapses on itself into meaninglessness. This makes the book invaluable because it exposes the folly of postmodern Christianity all the while trying to defend it’s rationality. The reader doesn’t have to do anything mentally strenuous to defend against it because the author takes his beliefs to their logical conclusion and that exposes the utter impossibility of the view. It collapses on itself. To be fair however, Caputo would have a different take on it but he must be willing to hold a view of Christianity with no purpose or designed trajectory.
