BOOK GIVEAWAY: Near Christianity

I am told that my book, Near Christianity: How Journeys along Jewish-Christian Borders Saved my Faith in God, is on Barnes & Noble shelves in places as exotic as Springfield, IL! The generous folks at Zondervan would like to celebrate the occasion by giving away a copy. You can enter in four fun-filled ways:

(1) follow me on twitter (and comment below saying that you have) @AnthonyLe_Donne

(2) visit www.NearChristianity.com and sign up for a free sample chapter (comment below saying that you have)

(3) share www.NearChristianity.com on any form of social media (comment below saying that you have) #nearchristianity

(4) comment below with your favorite line from a Coen Brothers flick

Sensible contestants do all of the above and comment below four times. Thus they increase their chance of triumph fourfold. And that, my friends, is very gospelish.

  1. Even though I followed you on Twitter slightly prior to this announcement (I believe it was last night?), I am still applying for qualification under category 1.

  8. "If a frog had wings, it wouldn't bump its ass a-hoppin." Hudsucker Proxy.

    Favorite because I think it might be the source of the most bizarro quote by one of the Boston Red Sox's most bizarro managers, Jimy Williams, who explained why he wouldn't answer hypOthetical questions from the Boston press corps by saying, "If a frog had wings, it wouldn't bump its booty." Cleaned up for the kids, of course. People don't cuss in baseball.
