Book Giveaway Winner and Farewell

Congratulations goes to Andrea of Foley, Alabama, our winner of the book giveaway Angels by Dr. David Jeremiah.

I am also writing to say "Goodbye". As you have no doubt noticed, my posts have been few and far between the last few months. I've been so busy, I just haven't had the necessary time to devote to blogging and there's no let up in sight for my schedule. SOOOOOOO, much as I hate to do it, I'm going to stop blogging. Who knows, maybe there will be room for it at some point in the future.

It's hard to believe I've been doing this for two years already. It feels like I just began yesterday. Thank you, everyone, for listening to my ramblings! I've meet some great friends in the blogosphere and I appreciate all of you.

Angels -- Book Review and Giveaway

Angels by Dr. David Jeremiah is very complete on the subject of angels and extremely well grounded in scriptures. If you want to become an authority on the topic of angels -- what the Bible says, their role, their characteristics, what they are NOT despite public thought -- then this is the book for you. I found this book more "textbook" than engaging, but it's hard to be scholarly and definitive AND entertaining at the same time. That's not to say it's a hard book to read; in fact, it flows easily. If you're really interested in what the Bible says about angels, Angels by Dr. David Jeremiah is a must have book.

GIVEAWAY: I have one copy of this book to giveaway. To enter the random drawing, please e-mail your name and mailing address to The winner will be announced Friday, February 5th.

You can purchase the book here:

Below is the summary from the publisher:

What are angels? What is their role in God’s plan? Are they present? Do they appear? Do they give us personal insight about our work, our worship?

Many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth. Dr. David Jeremiah uses scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents of heaven, and their role and work in our world—and lives.

More than 60,000 units of this powerful book have sold in two past editions. This repackage of the original 1996 paperback will surely capture the attention of readers of all ages who seek a broad and thorough survey of scripture that clearly separates fact from fiction as it relates to angels. The book will appeal to the thousands who follow Dr. Jeremiah’s books, and radio and TV broadcasts.

Relevant, little known biblical facts help readers sharpen their knowledge and sensitivities toward the spiritual reality of angels. Dr. Jeremiah’s enlightening findings are supported with illustrations and insights from Billy Graham, Corrie ten Boom, C.S. Lewis, and more.
