It’s free book Friday!
Since this is the very first free book Friday, we’re celebrating with two contests, in which you can win free books.
My newest book, Deeper into the Word, looks at 100 words from the New Testament, from “Afraid” to “Yoke.” In an easy-to-read style, it examines what each word meant then (when the NT was written) and what it means for us today. This book is a perfect blend between a Bible reference book and a thoughtful devotional.
So the first contest is simple: Post a comment below answering one or more of these questions: What is your favorite New Testament word? Or a New Testament word you’ve often wondered about? Or a verse that has puzzled you? Keri will pick three words to write a blog post about. If she picks your word to write about, you get a free copy of Deeper into the Word!
The second contest is also simple (remember, I’m all about simplicity): click here to go to the Google books page, where you can read more than 30 pages of Deeper into the Word. Based on reading that much, post a review on your blog or your Facebook page, and also on amazon.com. Leave a comment below with the link to your review. Again, three winners will be selected to receive a free copy of Deeper into the Word (so that you can read the rest of the book!).
You have until noon Monday to enter!
Good luck. We’ll announce winners on Monday evening. any questions? leave a comment and I will gladly respond!
I have always wondered about the roots of “forgiveness” and “transgression”. Probably because I asks for so much forgiveness for all of my transgressions!
“Love” It has so many meanings – God’s love – the love between a man and a woman the way it was meant to be had – man’s version of love…..
Actually… I choose:
“Transformation” – How do we truly know God and The Spirit are transforming us? I often get mad at myself for not caring the way the Bible tells us to care and wonder why God hasn’t transformed me to that extent yet. I wonder if I’m truly saved if I continue to sin. I wonder if I’m truly saved if I’m a loner and don’t go to church. I wonder if I’m truly saved if I’m not emotionally stirred about people and about ethical issues or about wrong doings in the world. I’m still praying for new and ongoing transformation.
Rest. I love that word and what the Bible says about it. You probably already used that one. Another is gentleness.
Since I was young and learned the Beatitudes in Sunday School, I have always contemplated them and what their true meaning was. What was really going on around Jesus to prompt him. A lot of his preaching reflects what the society was at his time.

love all these responses. Several mentioned are in the book: rest, love, faith, bless. But keep them coming and share the link on Facebook or Twitter. I’ll post excerpts from the book but also plan to take on a study of a few new ones as well!
My favorite word is blessing. It has a lot of meaning for me as a person God has blessed me in a lot of ways. I sometimes wonder if people forget about the blessings we are given.
Amazed. As in Luke 2, “…all who heard it were amazed.” We who have seen and heard it all are not amazed enough anymore by the good news.
I am wondering about “tongues” and how it would really be significant to those who received this gift, as in the book of Acts, many believers has it but i am wondering about the practice of praying in tongues. Can you control it when the Holy Spirit starts pouring out on you? Or if however you control it, it was like guilty of stopping the Spirit of God. or still am wondering really where it originates. if a person speak in tongues, is there any guarantee that it is from God? if you would enlighten me about this.
I have just posted a review on your book, here’s the link to my blog,
I am a word girl at heart, I studied Linguistics and French at Uni. I am the kind of girl that gets excited when my pastor goes back to the original language. So I am very excited about your new book.
I love the contradiction in Mark 9:24, it often sums up how I feel, and I would dearly like to know the exact meaning of “believe” and “unbelief” in this context.
