Giving Away “Worldliness”

On Monday we’ll be giving away a copy of the book “Worldliness“, edited by C.J. Mahaney, as part of the 2009 Great American Book Giveaway.

Let me whet your appetite with a quote from this book:

All too often, we think about neither what we watch nor how much.? Our watching is just inevitable. We watch by habit. We watch because we’re bored. We unwatchingly watch as the TV stays on for background noise. We watch alone or with others. We gather with friends on Friday night and rent a DVD because there’s nothing else to do…

Please don’t misunderstand. I’m not saying it’s wrong to watch television, rent a DVD, surf the Internet, or spend an evening at the cinema. The hazard is thoughtless watching. Glorifying God is an intentional pursuit. We don’t accidentally drift into holiness; rather, we mature gradually and purposefully, one choice at a time. (From “God, My Heart, and Media” by Craig Cabaniss)

This is a book worth reading!

And it’s not too late to enter the 2009 Great American Book Giveaway.

Never Miss Any Goodness

  • Stephen, I have to admit that when I saw this post title in my RSS feed I was a bit concerned. Don’t do it. Don’t give away “Worldiness”, we have quite enough already. Please consider giving away “godliness” instead.

    Just kidding. Great idea.

    If I don’t win this one, I’m buying it sometime this year. Our singles are going through it currently while the marrieds are doing “When Sinners Say ‘I Do'”. This is one time in my married life that I’ve wished I was single. :)

    This is very of subject, but I was wondering how tempted to anger you would be if I wrote a comment that included your email address with the real punctuation marks in it?

    IF I ever lose my cool and do that you can worward me all the resulting spam.

    Also, can’t hackers duplicate their search for line that contain both “[dot]” and “[at]”?

    OK, sorry, I’m done now.
