Thanks to everyone who has emailed me and left comments to nominate people for the Advent book giveaway! After careful consideration, drumroll please…the winner is… Tia Lynn!
One of the reasons I wrote this book was to give people a hopeful and life-giving perspective on what it means to follow Jesus. Tia, from what I can tell, your friend Maura has found her way into God’s story but could use some help finding abundant life in there and enough courage to push back on the fear that’s keeping her captive.
Especially as we celebrate this season of Advent, we celebrate and remember that we have been given “good news of great joy for ALL people” (Luke 2:10). If Maura wants her family to come to walk in the way of the Christ child, I truly believe there is nothing more powerful or persuasive than the example of a life lived in hope, grounded in peace, and drenched in love. The Gospel is not fearful news; it is the best news this world has ever received. The light of Christ has come into the world, and the darkness has not overcome it.
In whatever small way possible, I pray the Spirit can use The Boundary-Breaking God to bring your friend Maura the hope that is ours at Christmas and year-round. (And I hope you enjoy your copy, too!)
