Special Christmas Giveaway on November 14, 2015 - Angels: A 90-Day Devotional about God's Messengers

I'm very happy today for several reasons - first, I get to announce one more giveaway for my month of Special Christmas Giveaways! This brings the total number of items I'm giving away this year to 24 . . . with just 30 days in the month, 24 giveaways is not, too bad! Twenty-four opportunities for me to give things away . . . I'm a happy person!

Plus, the giveaway I'm announcing today is a very special book, written by a very special lady; my friend, Christa Kinde! And, she was her typical, very sweet self and autographed the book as well!

And, one more reason: the book is about Angels! Since Christmas is probably the time of year when we think most about Angels, it seems like the perfect time of year to share this new book with you . . . and to give one away!

  • Christa takes each Scripture account where angels are mentioned and gives us a Biblically accurate view of who angels are, why they were created, when they were created and what they do.
Zonderkidz says; "Guardian angels. Divine messengers. Fiery spirits. Winged cherubim. The realm where these beings live is invisible to us. Most of the time, so are the angels themselves. So how do we know they’re real? How can we be sure they’re there? And what do we really know about them? Angels: A 90-Day Devotional about God's Messengers explores over one hundred Bible passages in which angels make an appearance. In addition, there are Q and As, myths busters, hymns, Bible story retellings, pop culture references, and trivia which will help you sort fact from fiction. So, spend the next ninety days really exploring the world of angels, and learn more about what is taking place all around you."

I love the focus Christa kept when writing Angels: A 90-Day Devotional about God's Messengers; her focus is on helping us, "sort fact from fiction." So many of us - as adults - have incorrect beliefs about angels. We talk like we believe when a loved one dies, they, "receive their wings" and are now angels. We talk like we believe angels sit on clouds, playing harps and are pretty girls/women with frilly gowns and fancy wings. None of these things are true. Angels are not people who died. Angels do not sit around on clouds playing harps and they are described as warriors and always appear as men.

Christa will take you on a short - 90-Day journey through God's Word with Angels: A 90-Day Devotional about God's Messengers to help you understand the truth about angels and more importantly, how they help you better understand who God is and how great His love is for you!

Angels: A 90-Day Devotional about God's Messengers is a book I'm absolutely giving to my grandson; he is curious and I believe he will enjoy learning the truth about angels . . . and I for one, find great value in him having this firm foundation of Biblical truth upon which to build his view of angels. Angels: A 90-Day Devotional about God's Messengers is an excellent Christmas gift for anyone on your list - child and adult alike!

I'm very happy to say, not only did Christa send me one copy of Angels: A 90-Day Devotional about God's Messengers for me to read, so I could write a review of my own opinion of her book, but she also sent an additional autographed copy for me to give away (USA only)! If you live in the USA, are over the age of 18 and would like to be included in this giveaway for Angels: A 90-Day Devotional about God's Messengers, which will be on November 14, 2015, please comment below to tell me your favorite Bible event where angels make an appearance . . . this is a challenge for me, because of course I love how angels show up many times in the Christmas account, love how the shut the mouths of the lions with Daniel, but I especially love how they show up to surround the humongous army which set out to get Elisha . . . his servant was afraid, but Elisha told him; "greater are those who are with us, than those who are against us" and asked God to, "open" the eyes of his servant - which God did! I LOVE this Bible event!
