Challies.com December Giveaway--Modern Parables


I know, I know, it's not about Etsy this time. But my husband reads a blog called Challies.com all the time, and they have this really great giveaway right now.


Tim Challies is the author of the blog, which is a full-time job for him. He does live blogs while at Christian conferences throughout the year, all across the nation. He does book reviews on an almost daily basis. He is currently a brand new author, of his first book, The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment. He also does giveaways each month from some of his sponsors.


This month, the giveaway is for a fantastic DVD set called Modern Parables. "Modern Parables is “an original Bible study curriculum designed for people who like movies. It is the first in a planned series of film-driven studies on the parables. The films are uniquely designed to parallel the original parable and thereby drive the viewer back toward the Biblical text. The 12-lesson study (with 6 additional lessons on cinema and theology) uses short dramatic films that explain Jesus’ parables using the particular strength of the cinematic medium. In other words, just watching the films helps teach the historical, grammatical, contextual and interpretive elements in the parables.”


You can read Tim Challies' review of this DVD set here. If you enter to win this DVD set, please use our referral ID # which is 40928. This will allow us to have more chances to win.


Thank you for reading this, and allowing me to digress from the Etsy promotional content you are used to in this blog.


Have a great day and God bless!
