Happy Advent, everyone! As it’s Advent, I’m in a particularly festive mood, and I’d like to celebrate by giving away a free copy of my book. But of course, it wouldn’t be fun just to give it away without any fanfare. It’s Advent, after all- the season of angels blurting trumpets of joy and pregnant women bursting out into song and declarations of peace on earth. So, here’s the scoop on how you can score yourself a free copy of The Boundary-Breaking God.
I’m really appreciative of all the wonderful feedback I’ve gotten on the book thus far. One of the comments I’ve heard over and over again is, “So many people need to read this!” or “I really wish my friend/pastor/professor/family member _________ could hear this.” Well, here’s your chance to spread the message! Who do you think most needs to hear this message of hope and promise? Who most needs to hear the story of God as one of expansion, inclusion and hopeful celebration? And by who, I don’t mean broad generalizations like “college freshmen” or “disillusioned Christians.” Be specific, as in “my friend Jim who lives in Ohio” or “my Aunt Rhoda who thinks God is a dictatorial sadist.” (If you have an Aunt Rhoda who thinks that, actually, I’ll do you one better- give me her number and I will call her up this very afternoon.)
So- give it some thought. Then leave the name of the person you think most needs to read this book in the comments and make your case as to why. The person with the most creative/compelling/intriguing answer will score two autographed copies of the book- one, of course, will be sent to the person nominated (complete with a personalized note from me- because I am nothing if not intent on the highest level of customer service) and one will be sent to the nominator to keep. I’ll post the name of the winner this Friday at noon.
Let the nominations begin!
