BloggyGiveaways Blog Carnival!

*THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED. THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED!!*

I have 5 copies of BIBLE ILLUMINATED: The Book: New Testament available to win!!

Never before has a publisher illuminated the Bible with such an array of striking, even provocative contemporary photographs. Wrapped in an arresting cover, Bible Illuminated: The Book: New Testament presents The Bible in a full-color, glossy magazine format, set in running text with no verses, inviting readers to step into the Bible and experience it in a whole new way.

The Book, using the Good News Translation as approved by the American Bible Society, will introduce believers and non-believers to a culturally relevant, accessible Bible and will encourage dialogue between people from all walks of life.

When was the last time you picked it up and read it?

Giveaway Guidelines:

* open to international mailing addresses

* Contest will close Sunday, February 1 at 10pm, CST

* Winners will be chosen using Random.org and will be notified Monday, February 2

Let's try this again. I attempted to leave a comment a couple of days ago, but the system must have been too overwhelmed cause it would accept my post.

I would absolutely 100% love to win a copy of this book because I think it sounds utterly intriguing. I am doing a Bible Study right now so have been reading the regular version, and I think this would be so cool to check out.

Thanks for the opportunity!

What a fantastic idea! It would help non believers because it would teach them the work of God without them thinking it was pushy. I love it and have several people in mind that I would like to give it to (after I read it of course )
