Update:  The contest is now closed.  If you didn’t get an email, alas, you didn’t win. However, watch this space for more giveaways in the near future of equally provocative booksAnd make sure you buy a copy or two of Dr. Sanders’ book anyway.  You will not be disappointed.

My friend and mentor Fred Sanders’ new book, The Deep Things of God:  How the Trinity Changes Everything, comes out on August 31st, and it’s a doozy.

I’ve argued that Dr. Sanders is one of evangelicalism’s brightest theological lights, and this book is going to prove me right.  Whether you’re a pastor, a layman, or even just a guy who wants a better understanding of Christianity’s central doctrine, this is an absolute must-read.

Here was my blurb:

There simply aren’t enough superlatives to describe how important and timely this book is.  Sanders demonstrates how the Trinity is at the heart of the Gospel and the foundation of the Christian life, and makes his case by bringing forward distinctly evangelical voices.

But this is no book of abstract theology:  Sanders’ work is lively, engaging, and accessible.  He brings the Trinity out of the cloistered walls of academia and into the living room, explaining in terms anyone can understand that we are immersed in the reality of the Triune God. There is no better guide I know of to explore the deep things of God than this book, and it deserves a wide and serious hearing by pastors, theologians, and laymen alike.

In short:  Buy it.  Read it.

Or, win it. I’ve never done a giveaway before, and I wouldn’t if I wasn’t really excited about the book.  But I am, and Crossway was kind enough to give me three copies to give to giveaway.
