Books Make Great Christmas Gifts!

We have another signed copy of David Crowder and Ben Hogan’s book to give away! You know, their book (signed!) Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven But Nobody Wants to Die would make a nice Christmas present, don’t you think?

Books make great Christmas presents. We’re wondering:

Will you be giving any books as gifts this Season?

Are there any books you hope to get for Christmas?

"Comment" your answers... the winner of the FREE SIGNED BOOK will be chosen randomly from the list of comments (only one comment per person, please) on Tuesday, December 15, 2009.

Read an interview with the authors.

The winner from the previous giveaway still has not claimed his prize. Please check the comment section of this post to see if you are the winner.

One of my kids really likes G.P. Taylor's Doppleganger Chronicles. As we both recently finished the first, I might be tempted to buy the 2nd one for her and borrow it while she's at school ;-)

As for myself, maybe a book from Taylor's Shadowmancer series, http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2004/juneweb-only/6-14-42.0.html. I recently finished the first one and found it a great encouragement.
