ESV Journaling Bible Giveaway

UPDATE: So many of you are participating that Crossway is allowing me to give away 5 Journaling Bibles! So spread the word. There will be five winners.

Yesterday I shared how much I am enjoying my ESV Journaling Bible, and how I'm using it. In the comments others shared how they are using it. Today I'm kicking off the ESV Journaling Bible Giveaway. The winner gets to choose what kind of journaling Bible they want from the options below. For the record, I bought and use the Original (hardcover, black) "Moleskine" edition.

Your choices are the Original (black, hardcover), the Threshold Design (mocha, bonded leather), the Antique Floral Design (hardcover), or the Flourish Design (raspberry/chocolate, TruTone).

To enter the giveaway you need to leave a comment below and let us know 1) which version of the Journaling Bible you would prefer, and 2) where in Scripture you might start reading and journaling.

Note: Shipping is limited to the U.S. and Canada.

I will close the comments on Friday morning, and announce a winner later in the day. If you don't win, you can get a good deal on these Bibles (and more, like the Natural Leather version) at WTS Books.

Hit the comments to register! The giveaway is over, and winners are being randomly selected.

Spread the word via Twitter and Facebook!

Book Giveaway: Think

Because you didn't read it last year when you should have I'm giving away two copies of John Piper's excellent book, Think, this week on the blog. This was one of my favorite reads last year, and I've encouraged everyone I know to pick up a copy. John helps the reader to understand the value and place of the thinking in the Christian life, and through his interaction with Scripture he models the discipling of thinking deeply with the aim of know and loving God. Think truly is a book for everyone who wants to know Jesus Christ more deeply and make him known more widely. You can read an interview with John about the book at Christianity Today here. We can only ship the book inside the U.S. (sorry international friends).

To win one of the two copies of Think you need to do two things:

1. Leave a comment on this post. Include your name and email in the form, and tell us what thinkers have helped you in your walk with God. This can be people you know (professors, pastors, friends, parents) or people you read and listen to.

2. Tweet the giveaway. Point people to the giveaway via Twitter. You can specifically tweet this: "Enter to win a free copy of John Piper's book, Think." (Be sure and leave your Twitter name with your comment on the blog so I can find your tweet.)

Entries are cut off Wednesday morning at 9am (CST), and a winners will be announced shortly after.
