A few days ago here at the blog I talked about a few of my goals for this year. The highlight of that post was a book-giveaway. I wrote everyone’s name on a piece of paper, folded it, and put it in a bowl. My three-year old son, Isaiah, then picked the winner as I shook the bowl (which made it fun for my son) – this ensured that the drawing was both fair (and really “cute” – in the words of my wife). The winner of this drawing is Ben Fetterolf! Of the three books offered, he chose Practicing Affirmation: God-Centered Praise for Those Who Are Not God by Sam Crabtree. It is an excellent book and worth the few dollars to read.If you would like to read a little more about it then go no further than esteemed Andy Naselli who put it down as one of his favorite books of 2011. Check out some of his thoughts on the book here. You can also read and download an excerpt.
Here is a video of an interview of Sam Crabtree by Desiring God (it is a little over an hour just so you know).
