UPDATE: The Heavenly Springs Book Giveaway just got better! Due to the number of entries, we have decided to increase everyone’s chances by adding a second and third place. So, now the contest looks like this: One Grand Prize winner will still receive 1 copy of “Heaven Taken by Storm”, 1 copy of “The Fight of Faith Crowned”, plus a special surprise! The second place winner will receive a copy of “Heaven Taken by Storm”. The third place winner will receive a copy of “The Fight of Faith Crowned”.
The winners will be announced on Saturday, January 15th.
To kick off the New Year, Heavenly Springs will be giving away 2 Thomas Watson books, plus 1 surprise!
The first book, “Heaven Taken by Storm” is an old Puritan classic that has been out of print for some time now. Thanks to the editing work of Don Kistler it has been made available once more. In this handbook, Watson teaches the Christian how to employ the various means of grace such as the Word of God, prayer, meditation, self-examination, and others, to take the kingdom of heaven by holy violence. You can read about it here.
The second book, “The Fight of Faith Crowned” contains 6 sermons that have not been reprinted for over 300 years. With this publicaton, all of Watson’s sermons are officially available in print! If for nothing else, the last sermon should pique your interest. Joel Beeke & Randall J. Pederson, in “Meet the Puritans” describe how, “The last sermon strips away every excuse for not seeking God and pleads that we bow to the demand of the gospel.” You can read all about it here.
So, just to be clear. One winner. Two books. One special surprise. Sounds like a good deal to me!
If you are interested in entering the contest, all you have to do is leave a comment to let me know. Also, if you would like to increase your chances, post this to your FB profile, or your blog and then let me know that you have done so. I will add your name to the drawing for each time you share!
The winner will be announced next Saturday, January 15th.
International entries welcome!

Enter me in. I gave 97.2% of my books away before I left the USA. I have a box full here. Could use more reading material and TW is one of my favorites. I brought to Kuwait the “Body of Divinity” because I consider it a must in a Calvinists library. Whoever God chooses for this will be much pleased!…and I do have an American address – so no worry.
Eddie Eddings says
oh yeah…facebook done.
