Next Free Book: Mere Churchianity

Well, since I wrote my review of Under the Overpass for WaterBrook Multnomah, I can now order another new book from the Blogging for Books program.

While there were several good options, I decided to request Michael Spencer’s book Mere Churchianity: Finding Your Way Back to Jesus-Shaped Spirituality. (And, the book is already queued for shipment and should be here in a week or so.) Click the link above for the publisher’s description of the book.

I always enjoyed reading Spencer’s writing (even if I didn’t always agree with him) as the Internet Monk before he died last year. So, I’m looking forward to reading and reviewing this book.

If you blog and like to read, you should definitely sign up for Blogging for Books. (No, I do not get anything if you sign up. I just think it’s a great program for bloggers and want to share it with my readers.)

    Alan,

    I both liked and disliked this book – if that is possible. I wrote a short review of it here: http://eric-carpenter.blogspot.com/2010/07/mere-churchianity.html.

    Eric,

    Good. I like books that force me to think about what I believe. I think that’s why I always like the iMonk’s writings even when I didn’t agree with him.

    Thanks for the heads up about the site, I signed up. Know any other ways to get review copies as a blogger?

    Andy,

    I often get review copies from Energion Publications. I’ve also gotten occasional review copies from Zondervan. I follow their blogs and watch for announcements.
