Enter to Win a FREE copy of "Stop Dating The Church" by Joshua Harris

When I first read the title of this book I immediately thought that it would have to do with being single especially since Joshua Harris' first book was called "I Kissed Dating Goodbye". I was wrong. Don't be deceived by the title. This book explains the importance of being committed a local church body. Planting yourself in a local congregation and growing.

In "Stop Dating The Church Fall In Love With The Family of God", Harris explains the beauty of the church, our need for the church, what commitment to a church involves, what to look for in a church, and how to make Sunday the best day of the week. Stop Dating The Church emphasis that church is the place God grows us, and encourages us.

Here is what to do: Leave a comment below with your name and some way for me to contact you if you win (email or blog link is fine). Comments will be opened through next Monday and a winner will be randomly chosen next Tuesday. Open to U.S. residents only.

Trish,
I love your Blog. I've been listening to you on WOTM for so long, I am so amazed at the gifts God has given you for evangelism. I'm a brand-new follower of Christ (He saved me last July) and on top of that, I left the Mormon Church after 33 years. It's been quite a year. I'd love a copy of the book. And someday, when God's timing is right, my husband and children will come to Christ, and leave the mormon church, and I'll be able to plant myself in the body of a local congregation. For now, PRAISE the LORD for podcasts of sermons!! God Bless you for all you do. Really, it's so far-reaching. Keep on keepin' on.

Trish,

Thank you for being an example and an encouragement in so many ways.

Kari,

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful testimony! My husband prayed for me 3 years and I was just saved in March. Two weeks later, my 12 year old son was saved. Two weeks after that, my 14 year old daughter was saved. Don't give up! I will be praying for you and your family!

i read joshua harris' book "i kissed dating goodbye" because i wanted to read how a young man managed to adopt such Godly standards in regards to dating/courting. i have 3 sons to train and joshua's book set my husband and i on the right course.
i really enjoyed this read and i suspect the book your offering will be just as a great read for the Body of Christ.

please add me on this list to win.
