Would you like a shot at receiving a free Bible? Keep reading!
Most of you know the Common English Bible (CEB) has been my go-to Bible for personal use as well as ministry for the past year. The CEB is the most recent committee-based translation of the Scriptures. It’s the product of serious scholarship and marvelously achieves its goals of being both accurate and accessible. It’s a translation children and adults alike can truly share. It’s freshness in rendering makes it a true pleasure to read for both newbies to Scripture and those of us who are quite familiar with the Bible. The more you read it, the more you’ll like it. More importantly, the more you read it the more you’ll understand Scripture. You owe it to yourself to learn more about this translation and to become very familiar with it. It would make a fine gift to give, or receive, this Christmas! Hint, hint.
And that’s one reason, starting today, you’ll see me participating in the CEB’s Thank You-Come Again-I Promise blog tour. That means you’ll see daily posts here from now until the end of January dealing with a variety of texts and topics, all of which will spotlight the Common English Bible.
“So how do I get my free Bible?,” you ask. Simple. The publishers of the CEB are enabling me, and all of the participant writers for this blog tour, to give away a free CEB every week. You’ll have a shot at receiving a copy by being the first to leave an encouraging or helpful comment on any of my daily posts from today through the tour’s conclusion at the end of January. Be the first to end your comment with the statement “I’d like one CEB to go, please” and you’ll receive your free Bible, no strings attached. Sorry, no repeat winners. If you’re the winner one week, all you’ll need to do to receive your Bible is to send me your name, postal address, and e-mail address so I can pass it along to the CEB publishers. They’ll be the ones who mail your free Bible to you.
Finally, a few brief notes regarding upcoming postings here.
Since this is National Bible Week, this week’s CEB blog tour posts will deal specifically with the Common English Bible, its creation, content, and more. You’ll find this interesting.
Our daily devotional posts in our Journey Thru James will conclude this coming Sunday (Nov. 27). What a blessing this reflective walk with James has been for me and I pray it has been the same for you!
MoSt Church‘s winter Bible class quarter study in the Psalms – Prayers of the Heart – will begin on Sun., Dec. 4 and will run through the end of February. Watch for weekly posts here in connection with this study as we seek the answer to this question: “How can I truly grow in my understanding and practice of prayer?”
MoSt Church’s church-wide Bible reading project for 2012 – Uncommon Truth for Common People (UTCP) – will start up on Mon., Jan. 2. You’ll find posts here supplementing the UTCP reading project most weekdays throughout 2012. I’ll make note here on my site as soon as I learn that the companion Bible for this project has come off the press, the Common English Daily Companion Bible.
Remember, be the first to comment with “I’d like one CEB to go, please” and you’ll receive a free Bible.
