One-Way Love Book Give-Away Tomorrow!

October 2nd I shared a review with you for the book, One Way Love by Tullian Tchividjian (pronounced cha-vi-jin). I said, it, "is a book which I will enthusiastically recommend; even to the point of saying if you only read one book this year, make it One Way Love!" And you still have time to get in on this give-away!

I said, "Chapter after chapter, paragraph after paragraph, sentence after sentence Tullian explains and shows us what One-Way Love is and how it is a Gift from God we can not earn to get or earn to keep! I love One Way Love! Look at a few quotes which have given me much to think about; "If we're not careful, we can give people the impression Christianity is first and foremost about the sacrifice we make for Jesus rather than about the sacrifice Jesus made for us; our performance for Him rather than His performance for us; our obedience for Him rather than His obedience for us. The hub of Christianity is not, 'do something for Jesus.' The hub of Christianity is, 'Jesus did everything for you.'"

And this one; "It's high time for the church to honor it's Founder by embracing sola gratia anew, to reignite the beacon of hope for the hopeless and point all of us bedraggled performancists back to the freedom and rest of the Cross. To leave our ifs, ands or buts behind and get back to proclaiming the only message which matters - and the only message we have - the Word about God's one-way love for sinners."

Can you see why I love this book?!! You'll find my full review at this link, but let me say - again, "this is a book which will help you see,"The Gospel is not a command to hang on to Jesus. It's a promise that no matter how weak your faith and how unsuccessful your efforts may be, God is always holding on to you." You will want to read this - and give a copy to everyone on your Christmas list!"

I'm thrilled to say not only did David C. Cook send me a copy for free to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only)! If you'd like to be in the drawing for One Way Lovewhich will be tomorrow, on October 12, 2013,  please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG or at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed About the Children's Department by email.
