As the release nears for Michael Horton’s Systematic Theology The Christian Faith I thought it would be fitting to feature another book by Horton as this week’s giveaway.
That book is A Place for Weakness: Preparing Yourself for Suffering. In it Professor Horton “exposes the pop culture that sells Jesus like a product for health and happiness and reminds us that our lives often lead us on difficult routes we must follow by faith.”
If you are interested in learning more about A Place for Weakness check out Todd Pruitt’s review at The Gospel Coalition. In his words “Read this book. Read it if you are at all interested in understanding how the doing, dying, and rising of Christ answers your sufferings. Read it if you are at all interested in how the gospel hushes the law’s loud thunder. Read it to learn how eternal hope is even better than explanations about why we suffer at any given time.”
The giveaway will run though Thursday afternoon with two copies up for grabs. To enter just comment below with your answer to this admittedly self-serving question, what one band would you suggest we check out as we enter 2011?
