As a part of the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop, I'm holding a giveaway for your choice of one of the following books:
Pursued by Jud Wilhite. You can read my review.
Christian faith isn't blind obedience to a set of rules and regulations; it is entering into a relationship with a God who pursues us--not to punish, but to love. No matter how far someone has strayed from God, God always remains in passionate pursuit.
Studying the book of Hosea--about the prophet commanded by God to marry an unfaithful prostitute as a metaphor for God's unwavering love--Pursued compellingly illustrates God's plan for every person: to be freed to become his or her own unique self through intimate togetherness with the living, loving God.
Matthew by Michael J. Wilkins is a Bible background commentary. You can read my review.
Full of full-color photos and graphics, the Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary: Matthew walks you verse by verse through Matthew. Things that seem mystifying, puzzling, or obscure will take on tremendous meaning when you view them in their ancient context. You'll deepen your understanding of the teachings of Jesus.
This contest is for USA & Canada residents only.
