Blog Anniversary Giveaway 2: The Case for the Resurrection

Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 7.55.14 PMSince it is Holy Week, I thought this week’s blog anniversary giveaway ought to be resurrection focused.

So, here’s what I settled on. Gary Habermas’s message about the theological necessity and the historical truth of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is one message from my time at Liberty University I still remember fondly.

It’s true that without the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Christianity is “vain.” Yet, there are so many trying to tear down this truth. I want to you to be equipped friends.

So, if you want to win this book and be prepared to answer those skeptics comment here at the website, on my Facebook page, or Tweet me (@steakandabible). This drawing will close midnight on Resurrection Sunday (Easter).

If you’ve ever read the account of the prodigal son and identified with the older brother, or read the passage about the woman caught in adultery and (if you’re being honest with yourself ) you would have been in the crowd ready to cast stones, you probably are too.

Thankfully, God’s grace provides hope for all of us addicts.

I recently finished reading Pastor Tullian Tchividjian’s book, One Way Love, which is all about law and grace, how they are different and how they work together. It was a tremendous book and a reminder that I fall back into what he calls “performancism” all too often. And when I do, it’s wrong. (If you want to win a copy of One Way Love details are at the bottom of this post). Continue reading
