Book Giveaway — Pastoral

Mel, Charles and I are back from our travels and getting settled in, once again, to life in Vancouver.  That means I can now return to my ongoing book giveaways (which I’ve initiated as one way of celebrating the birth of wee Charlie).  Just to remind everybody of how this works — if you want the books listed below (and you have to want all of them) just leave a comment and I will put your name in a random draw.  If I draw your name, I will mail the books to you, free of charge.  Simple, right?  Here are the books up for grabs this time:

1. Joyful Exiles: Life in Christ on the Dangerous Edge of Things by James M. Houston.

2. The God I Don’t Understand: Reflections on the Tough Questions of Faith by Christopher J. H. Wright.

3. Can God Be Trusted? Faith and the Challenge of Evil by John G. Stackhouse Jr.

4. Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Its Cure by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones.

5. Forgive and Forget: Healing the Hurts We Don’t Deserve by Lewis B. Smedes.

6. A Tale of Three Kings: A Study in Brokenness by Gene Edwards.


  1. Jesse from Portland. Books are goooooood.

  2. Congrats on the birth of your son, Dan.

  3. I’m in.

  4. Thank you for the books

  5. Thanks for your generosity.

  6. I don’t know you from Adam… but if you want to give me some books I’ll take’em!

  7. This is very generous of you. Thanks!

  8. Looking forward to reading them! Thanks!

  9. Dan, I would love to take your books from you.

    Where did you travel?

  10. Hey Elliot,

    We just went back to Ontario to visit some family, do a bit of networking, and so I could speak at a conference. It was good fun, but also tiring to travel with a newborn (with colic!).

    (Oh, and Ryan, thanks for the congrats!)

  11. I’m in but I will swing you the postage cost (if we win) cos’ we live in a country where it costs a ridiculous amount to send stuff to.

  12. Dan,
    I’m not asking for any books, but I was wondering what you thought of A Tale of Three Kings. On the one hand, I love it because it shows how God can shape someone willing to be shaped by suffering, but on the other hand I worry that the message to those suffering could be harmful and wrong-headed. I’d be interested to hear your perspective.

  13. Just adding this because I forgot to check “notify my of follow-up comments ia email.”

  14. I’m in.

  15. i just finished joyful exiles. it wasn’t bad.

  16. Please enter me, but where did you travel to?

    Thanks for giveaway!
