|Book Give-away I|
Don't be alarmed. It's just a picture. The actual book I'm giving away is much better. Well, the cover art is not as good, but the content will be much more satisfying. Here is how this will work this time. You email me by clicking here. Say whatever you want in the email, like maybe how brilliant, handsome, and charming I am, or make suggestions and offer constructive criticism, or say nothing at all if you prefer. Just include your name and make sure the subject line says "Book Give-away I," and you'll be entered in a drawing which will take place the first week in July. I am opening this first give-away to all who wish to enter. In the future, I may limit it to residents of the U.S. if shipping costs get out of hand.
And now, the book. I will be sending the lucky winner a book that I have recently finished (a new copy, not mine) and enjoyed very much. You may have read excerpts here, here, here, here, and here. It is Iain Murray's Revival & Revivalism: The Making and Marring of American Evangelicalism, 1750–1858. This is a good history of that era in America, and while more detail would have been nice at times, it could hardly be expected in only 480 pages covering over a century and the lives of dozens of significant men. At any rate, it is an excellent place to start and quite an engaging and easy read.
