October Giveaway: Share Christ with Grace and Truth This Halloween

By Stephanie Anderson October 6, 2010

Heaven tractI’m Stephanie, the promotions director at EPM, and I wanted to share this month’s giveaway on Randy’s blog. One question that Randy is asked from time to time is, “What do you think about Halloween?” This is a tough question to answer for many Christians, especially for those who are parents of young children. (Click here to read a perspective on Halloween from Randy’s book The Ishbane Conspiracy. John Piper also shares a great video answer to this question.)

For those who have chosen to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters, a good question might be, “How can we share the hope of Christ with those who come to our door?” What a great opportunity to offer the grace and truth that Jesus has given us—and that’s what we hope to encourage you to do. In this month’s giveaway, three winners will receive a copy of Randy’s book The Grace and Truth Paradox, as well as two packages (50 copies) of Randy’s tract “How can we know that we’ll go to Heaven?”

Along with candy, you can share tracts with the children who come to your door. These tracts have the potential to multiply their reach by being passed on to parents and friends. (Check out Literature Ministries International for other tracts you can give away.)

Randy writes in The Grace and Truth Paradox:

Attempts to “soften” the gospel by minimizing truth keep people from Jesus. Attempts to “toughen” the gospel by minimizing grace keep people from Jesus. It’s not enough for us to offer grace or truth.

We must offer both.

Here’s how to enter the giveaway:

  • Leave a comment on this blog post by Thursday, October 21. (If you're reading this post on Amazon or elsewhere on the web, visit Randy's blog here to leave your comment.) If you're a previous EPM giveaway winner, rather than entering, we'd love if you could share this giveaway with your friends.
  • Need help posting a comment? You’re welcome to contact me for help at  stephanie@epm.org. It has come to my attention that some who comment  have had difficulty with the captcha, or “word letter picture” that’s required when you’re commenting. (We use this to prevent spam on our website.) If it gives you an error, press the “Get another” link to get a new one and try commenting again. If it continues to give you difficulty, please do email me. I want you to be able to enter!
  • The three randomly drawn winners will be announced in a blog post on Friday, October 22.

I’d also like to let you know that today and tomorrow, Randy’s book The Grace and Truth Paradox is on sale from EPM for $4.00 (retail $10.99, an over 60% savings). By the way, this is one of Randy’s favorite books he’s written. To find out why, watch the video below:
