Today is my birthday. And I’m thankful to God for another year of having the privilege of serving Him on this earth.
I’m still part of what someone has called “The Christian 40-Club” … which includes Derwin Gray, Ed Stetzer, Francis Chan, Donald Miller, Mark Driscoll, Rob Bell, James K.A. Smith and a host of other Christian authors who are in their 40s.
For those wondering how old I am exactly, someone who knows me well recently made the accurate remark that I’m one year younger than Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt.
That and a quarter will buy me a piece of bubble gum.
Anyways, I’m thankful for many things. And among them are all of you who read this blog, who stimulate my thinking with your comments, and who encourage me in the uncommon journey we share.
When I started writing books, I had no idea that anyone would care to read what I had to say.
I’m still humbled by this every day. So thank you . . . especially those of you who subscribe to this blog and have taken the time to read my books.
I’m very appreciative.
Even so, someone axed me what I’d like for my birthday. My answer . . .
That all my blog readers would purchase a copy of my new book Jesus: A Theography from Amazon.com or from their local Family Christian or Barnes & Noble this weekend.
I really believe you will be helped by this book. It will provoke you to love Jesus more, to follow Him more passionately, and to love the Bible more and understand it better as well.
Sooo . . . for the both of you who are interested in fulfilling my b-day wish . . . :-), here are the links for Amazon:
Oh, for those of you who are new to the blog, I don’t profit personally from my book sales. Royalties go to help the poor and for ministry expenses.
Incidentally, on the last few Fridays, I’ve been posting my review of various Bible software programs.
So because of this “intermission” kind of post, I’ll be publishing my review of WORDsearch tomorrow.
