Giving away 3 more copies of "Drops Like Stars" by Rob Bell  

Posted by Adam

Surprise boys and girls! Zondervan publishing noticed our recent giveaway of Rob Bell's book, "Drops Like Stars: A Few Thoughts on Creativity and Suffering", and has authorized me to give away 3 more copies. You have until noon, Monday, Novemeber 9th to enter.

You may enter...

  • once for commenting on this post (on the actual blog, not facebook)
  • once for retweeting this contest on Twitter or posting a link to this post in your Facebook status message.
  • once for mentioning this contest with a link to this post on your personal blog.
Good luck! Winners will be announced on the afternoon that the giveaway ends.


P.S. If you aren't interested in the book, don't feel compelled to comment. I really have no desire to read about how you know that Rob Bell is a heretic...even though you've never read anything he's written or heard him speak...but you know because some "discernment" watchdog website told you so.

Well I hope I win a copy this time!! :)

Hey - Would love to win a copy of "Drops Like Stars" by Rob Bell

November 2, 2009 at 3:26 PM

Count me in. Rob Bell is a heretic... a la Jesus of Nazareth.

November 2, 2009 at 3:27 PM

pick me!

November 2, 2009 at 3:41 PM

great to be in good company with heretics like all of you and Rob

November 2, 2009 at 3:52 PM

Wow. I hadn't heard those "Rob Bell is a heretic" comments. Maybe I need to get out more. I do like what he has to say most of the time, though. And a free book is a free book!

November 2, 2009 at 3:56 PM

Count me in. I would like to win a copy of Rob Bell's book. :)

November 2, 2009 at 4:46 PM

I'm curious about this book, and this way I won't have to pay for it. Like a lot of his books though I'll probably pass it along to someone else once I'm done with it...which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Curious about the design considering all his work with NOOMA.

November 2, 2009 at 4:58 PM

Man... Rob Bell... I dunno... I guess I'd like to complete my heresy collection :-)

November 2, 2009 at 4:58 PM

I've not yet filled my heresy quota...count me in.

November 2, 2009 at 5:14 PM

I deserve a copy because of the following:
1) I was forced to stop teaching a Sunday morning class after a couple of fundamentalists in my church found the theological police websites you mentioned;
2) When Bell was in Atlanta, my bride was working out of state, and I didn't have childcare;
3) I probably have incriminating photos from our fraternity days.


November 2, 2009 at 6:04 PM

I would love to review the book from both my spiritual & therapeutic perspectives.

November 2, 2009 at 6:18 PM


If you pass those photos along to me that you speak of, I'll see if I can pull some strings. I've been hoping for some blackmail material that will get my dishes done :).

November 2, 2009 at 6:45 PM

Bell's a heretic in american civil religion...

but then again, so am i. and I'm glad, since even though it claims to follow christ, it often doesn't look or sound like him.

I want the book, because when I saw it I said "i cannot justify spending that much money on an awesome coffee table book..." but i did not say I wouldn't take it for free.

November 2, 2009 at 6:53 PM

Sounds like an interesting book. I've sure enjoyed Rob's other books and tours.

November 2, 2009 at 7:50 PM

Had a chance to get a brief look at this book and it looked quite interesting. Would love a copy of my own!

November 2, 2009 at 10:07 PM

the last time i won something was in first grade when the teacher gave away a paper mache texas flag we made. this is big time.

November 2, 2009 at 10:15 PM

i'd love a free rob bell book.

November 2, 2009 at 10:30 PM

You saying Sime folks would not approve of my changing my name to honor him?

November 3, 2009 at 12:25 AM

Ok, I want the book but only if I dont have to suffer while being creative...

November 3, 2009 at 12:26 AM

I am interested in reading the book. A good friend that heard Bell speak recently said he was great. I admit I am tired of the word heresy thrown around so easily. Like to read it and see for myself. I'll take one.

November 5, 2009 at 11:37 PM
