Book Giveaway!

This month I will giveaway the excellent book entitled, The Heavenly Man. To qualify for this book giveaway simply leave a comment on this blog post and I'll put your name in a hat. At the end of the month I'll draw one name and ship the book to you for free. I must admit that I have borrowed the idea of a book giveaway from John Bird's blog.

A few years ago I was given this book as a gift and I admit the title threw me. The book laid on my shelf for quite a while before I finally picked it up and began to read. A short while later I was fighting back the tears and had to put the book down and get on my knees in prayer. This book had this effect on me several times. I was simply blown away. It was like reading the book of Acts, only the occurrences therein were going on in our day.

I was first exposed to the persecution of Christians in China when I was about 12 years old at a Michael Card concert. Since then I have often thought of the faithful in China and the tremendous persecution they must endure. This book is the powerful account of a Chinese follower of Christ and the painful path he walked in pursuit of Jesus.
Thanks for the great idea John.

I would enter the draw, but I've already got the book. Unfortunately, haven't read it yet. After reading your post, I think maybe I should!

Yes, I will send it to Poland if you win. But then I must have an address to send it to. I'll announce the winner on this blog at the end of the month and if it is you then just send your mailing address (you can email it so you don't have to post it on the blog if you don't want to).

Wow, Ben. You've already had a great response. That sounds like a really good book. Maybe we'll end up trading.

I would love to win this book. Have you read Safely Home by Alcorn? It is a good fictional book portraying the plight of the underground church in China.
Thanks for the opportunity.
