Amazing deal on the brilliant life changing book: in a pit with a lion on a snowy day by Mark Batterson

“The Christmas shopping season begins Friday so I thought I’d throw out a gift idea. We typically only sell In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day by the case. And if you want a case of 24 books, we’ll hook you up with a sweet deal.
But we’ve decided to do a Christmas special and sell a six-pack of books. Basically, it’s buy three and get three free. I think they’d make a decent stocking stuffer for friends or family. Of course, I’m a biased author! If you do get them a copy of the book, definitely throw in something else like a ’42 flat screen TV or something.

I’m almost done with my confessional for this week…

I’ve got some stuff to tide you over though.

Also a question: Is anybody here interested in design resources and tutorials and how to apply them to church?

This Book is a 4 out of 4 star book and a must read for anybody in ministry.
In the book the writer discusses worship and the importance of it through every aspect.
He goes through our heart our mind, musi, communion, baptism, confession, tradition vs modern…pretty much everything. A fantastic challenging read. The main stream of it all is the commitment our worship has to justice and mercy. A much neglected area in the american church.

Save me From Myself; How I Found God, Quit Korn, Kicked Drugs And Lived To Tell My Story:
4 out of 4 stars
Brian “head” Welch

  • Hardcover: 240 pages
  • Publisher: HarperOne (July 3, 2007)

In 2005 Brian”head” welch gave his life to Christ sparking a media frenzy and controversy in the music industry. Most of us heard about it. Lead guitarist of Korn gets saved and leaves the band. I like most heard every kind of rumor around this and was wondering what the real truth was.

Then i find out through Jason (the man of steel) that instead of coming out with a CD like the rumors said he wrote a book. I thought…man I’d better pick this thing up. I am glad I did.

This is the Brian’s life story basically and it goes from him being a kid,to being in korn all the way to him getting saved. It goes through his Drug and alcohol abuse and his eventual freedom from it. I know what your thinking…Oh yeah another drug testimony. This one is different. I don’t know how best to explain it, but I read this book in 2 days. It had me captivated and amazed with God’s grace on this man. And on top of that the people he has affected since.

My words can’t do this one justice. Go buy it. It is a great redemption story for any Christian to read but more so for non believers and people whos lives are out of control. This book shows the hope we have in Christ.
