Free Copies of The Jesus Paradigm

The Jesus Paradigm… and you aren’t even required to review it (though we wouldn’t mind if you did!).

Yesterday on his blog Dave Black said:

8:00 AM I am so excited about what the Lord Jesus is doing in my local church. A revolution is taking place — a new revolution that has to take place if our church is to thrive and fulfill the Cause of Causes. And it’s not about the abolition of the clergy. It’s about the abolition of the laity. We are all sent on mission by the living Christ. My book The Jesus Paradigm studied this new revolution, this downward path of Jesus. I wish I could give away free copies to every believer. My goal in writing the book — and the goal of godly leadership — is to turn an audience into an army. Bethel Hill Baptist Church, possibly like your church, hasn’t needed renewal. It’s needed “newal.” When the world, and not the church, becomes the playing field, and when “the church” is no longer synonymous with “my pastor,” we are on the threshold of a wonderful future. Jesus accepts us but calls us to shape up. He is the ultimate Man of La Mancha. He looks at Aldonza the Harlot and renames her Dulcinea, My Lady. What grace! [Emphasis mine.]

So I emailed Dave and told him I couldn’t afford to give a free copy to every believer, but how about giving away five. He thought that was a great idea, and so do I (it was mine, after all), so here goes.

Comment on this post and say you’d like one. If you already have one, consider commenting and telling us to send it to someone else that you think could use a copy.

Next Friday, if there are more than five requests, I will randomly select five comments, email the writers for a name and physical address, and send out the books. That’s a week and one day. If there are less than five requests (but how could that be?) I’ll extend the deadline.

If you’re a blogger, consider publicizing this offer so more people have a chance to get a copy of this great book.

And now for an infomercial moment … I just decided to add one more thing.

Along with each copy of The Jesus Paradigm I’m going to send a copy of Dave’s newest book, Will You Join the Cause of Global Missions?

How about it?

  • Keith Kenyon

    I enjoy following Dave Black’s blog and am interested in reading The Jesus Paradigm to learn more about “newal” in the church.

  • Chris Freet

    I would love a copy of Dr. Black’s book.

  • Ken Wiest

    I am a daily follower of Dr. Black’s blog and have immensely enjoyed his insights, passion for the great commission and his love of the Bible and our Lord. I have read a couple of his Greek related books and would love to be able to read a book that he considers life transforming for him.

  • David

    I would love to get a copy of this book!

  • I’ve been reading Bro. Dave’s blog for years. In fact, it my very first stop on the internet every day. I’ve been working my way through his wonderful book, “It’s still Greek to me,” and would dearly love to have a copy of “The Jesus Paradigm.” However, for the sake of full disclosure I must admit, if I don’t receive a free copy as a result of commenting here, I will almost certainly buy one (you might want to send the free copies elsewhere).

  • We’ll be completely fair here. Regardless of whether you might buy a book or not, we’ll be randomly selecting the five to receive free books. We have to fulfil our promises!

  • These books sound like great reads and something that will bless my walk with our Lord and make me a better disciple of Jesus Christ so I can do greater works in His name. I would Love and be Honored to win these books …. Thank you, Bless you and have a GODday !!!

  • Tom Yaccarino

    As a follower of this blog I greatly appreciate a shot at the free book. Thanks

  • Charles

    I would love to have a copy. For most of three years our Sunday School class has been studying the parables of Jesus and this would be a great addition to our study.

    Thanks for making available the free copies and good to luck to everyone.

  • Robert

    I would like to be entered in the drawing for Dr. Black’s book please.
