Book Giveaway — Emergent

As a part of celebrating the birth of my son Charles, I will be doing a series of weekly themed book giveaways.  If you want to receive the books mentioned just leave a comment to let me know, and the winner will be randomly selected.  Each week’s winner will be announced the following week when I post the next set of books to be given away.  Also note that all of these books come from my own collection and may contain some (usually minimal) markings in the margins and the body of the text.

That said, the theme of this week’s giveaway is the Emergent church and the books are:

  • Brian McLaren’s ‘New Kind of Christian’ Trilogy (A New Kind of Christian; The Story We Find Ourselves In; & The Last Word and the Word After That);
  • Jesus Wants to Save Christians: A Manifesto for the Church in Exile by Rob Bell & Dan Golden;
  • The Moral Quest: Foundations of Christian Ethics by Stan Grenz.


  1. Well, I just picked up #2 in the McLaren series, and am looking at picking up #3 at some point. I’m not sure if you’re looking to give them away as a set, but if not, I would like to throw my name in the hat for The Last Word …

    Hope all is going well for father, mother and new son.

  2. Sure, I’m in!

  3. Wow! Really? I would love to have the chance.

  4. Hi,

    I have been reading and enjoying your blog for a bit. I would like to put my name in the hat.



  5. I have a friend who has just begun to express interest in understanding postmodernism from a christian perspective and the emerging church. This book set would be a great step into that conversation.

    Thanks for this offer and congratulations on the birth of your son!

  6. Would love to read these books! Already read McLaren’s trilogy, but they’d make a great gift for a friend who works as a chaplin at a university. Thanks for doing this, really love your blog.

  7. i’d love them dan, they’d be a great addition to theStory’s library.

  8. yeah! free books!!

  9. Dan,

    Thank you but I don’t want the book If you can find the time I what I want you to look at this blogpost.

    I would be very eager to see your response to this because it approaches one of your main themes in a different way.

  10. Too late to get in? All books that I would be interested in.

  11. Hey Dan,
    You owe me ;)!

    I’m in for all the books, but ‘Jesus Wants to Save Christians.’ I just got it.

    email me. I’d like you to come and speak in a class I’m teaching in Toronto. You’re in Vancouver now? Fill me in!


  12. I’d love the Grenz book. :)

  13. Nothing like free books to get folks coming out of the wood works, and I was just thinking of purchasing Bell’s book…(crossing fingers).

  14. Free books sound amazing! I’m wondering how giving away books is related to the birth of your son though… but I won’t complain!

  15. […] — Biblical Studies First of all, congratulations to Josh Chin, winner of last weeks Emergent giveaway.  This week, as we continue to celebrate the birth of Charles (by spreading the love), the theme […]
