Experiencing the Resurection by Henry and Melvin Blackaby and GIVE AWAY!

Once again, I have been astounded by how much can be contained in a “petite” sized book! This 5x7, 211-page hardcover book contains more scripture and teaching than I imagine many folks receive in a long time! If you want a detailed, scriptural look at the resurrection and all that it means for the believer and the non-believer, this is a book you need to look into!

The Blackaby’s have done a great job of presenting the Resurrection from several points of view – the mind of God, the life of Christ and the Believer’s Experience. This is a thorough concept that allows us to consider the full scope of what it means to serve a Risen Savior and not a buried god. There seems to be a cry from the world today that there are many ways to God, and as long as you are sincere, you can reach Him from many paths. The Bible states plainly that that belief is a lie. Christ is THE WAY, and the fact that God resurrected Him from the dead gives Him the power and authority to make that a daily truth in our lives.

Resurrection is both physical and spiritual for the believer, and the Blackaby’s do a good job of explaining this as well. Christ’s death and resurrection make salvation possible, but it also makes living in this present time full and joyful. The power of serving a Risen Savior invades every part of the believer’s daily walk, enabling us to live confidently and joyfully as we face the certain trials in this fallen world. I think this is a very thought-provoking book, and I feel it will be an encouragement to many believers. I also think that it could be a great witnessing tool as well as serve as a Bible study. There truly is a lot in this book, and I encourage you to purchase a copy today!

Kim, did you see this announcement on the ACFW loop?

If you know any young aspiring writers .....

This is a competition sponsored by EPIC for Middle School and High School students; fiction, essay and poetry divisions. NO cost to enter. This year, I believe our 3rd competition, received several pieces of TV coverage. It's growing. We had kids compete from as far away as Japan!

Also, at next year's EPICon, which will take place at Lake Las Vegas,
there is planned (still in the planning stages) a Young Writers track during the conference. While parents are attending different workshops, there will be workshops and learning opportunities for young writers.

This is open to home school students as well as public and private schools.

The rules/deadlines/guidelines for the 2009 competition have not been
posted yet, but you can check out EPIC's web site to see what was posted or the 2008 competition.

Check it out NOW, because the deadline is late summer.
