My Publisher is Giving Away My Book – Almost – for the Next 4 Days

Today is unbelievably exciting for me…and I wanted to share it with you! For the first time since my book – How to Enjoy Reading Your Bible – came out last May, my publisher is featuring it in their monthly sale!

Read the reviews or buy my book on Amazon!

They let me know this was coming a few weeks ago – but today through Sunday they dropped the price to $1.99!

QUOTE-The goal is relationshipSince you’re reading this blog, my assumption is that my writing, speaking, blogging, etc. have been an encouragement to you. If you believe the message of relational (vs. informational) Bible study would be an encouragement to others as well, would you help me spread the word? [Insert “pretty-please-with-a-cherry-on-top” here.]

Here are the two reasons I really need your help:

  1. I truly believe this is the message God has called me to share with the world. It has changed my life (and people tell me it has changed theirs too).
  2. Honestly…I want to write more books and publishers look at the traction that’s generated from events like this to determine whether they want to take a chance on an author’s next book.

Here are a few ways you can help:

  • Use this link to buy a copy. (BTW…This is the Amazon link, but my understanding is that it should be $1.99 everywhere for the next five days.)
  • Send one as a gift to someone through Amazon.
  • Copy/Paste this link anywhere and everywhere:

Amazon Sale - June 2016 - VerticalYou could also copy/paste this “pre-made” Facebook post:

When it comes to reading the Bible, is the conversation in your head more “should” than “want?” If so, this book from @KeithFerrin will help you make the switch. And it’s on sale for only $1.99 (but only until Sunday).

Or here’s one for Twitter:

If you love to share pictures instead of text, simply hover over any of the three pictures in this post and you should be able to share them with a click on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. In case you want to share them on other platforms (or save them for later), I’ve put the four pictures you see on this page in this public Dropbox folder.

QUOTE-What if God doesnt want to teach you anything today


Finally…would you please pray with me that God would use these next five days to get my book into the hands of those who need it? Thanks heaps!

Bonus 1How to Enjoy Reading Your Bible – STUDY GUIDE (PDF) Coming Soon! These questions are embedded at the end of each chapter. You can use this standalone version if you want a place to jot down notes, ideas, or questions for discussion.
FILWGW 3D v2Bonus 2Falling in Love with God’s Word: Discovering What God Always Intended Bible Study to Be (PDF – Full Book) The book that started it all. This book explores in great detail all three phases (Foundation, Framing, and Finish Work) of studying a book of the Bible and weaving Scripture Internalization into that process. It is the foundation of Relational Bible Study.

I really believe that if a person were to walk through the tips in this book, then it would completely change their Bible study. I would recommend this book for the individual, but I think that it would be even better if used in a small group study.”

How to Enjoy Reading Your Bible is an excellent book with some of the best advice on how to develop a lifestyle of consistent Bible reading while enjoying it at the same time.”

“This book will be a reference I keep on hand to gift others I meet who desire to know how to read the Bible with a “relational” approach. It is that helpful and I wish I would of had it years ago!”Amazon reviews...

#019: How a Simple eBook Turned Into a Traditional Publishing Contract [Podcast]

I originally wasn’t planning on recording this content for my podcast. However, after having last week’s post quickly become the most commented  on – and shared – post I’ve ever written, I thought I should record the story for my “listening” audience as well.

Main Topic: How a Simple eBook Turned Into a Traditional Publishing Contract.

If you are a listener, hit “play.” If you’ve already listened and you’re looking for the links, Listener Questions, and the Resource of the Week, scroll on down about 10 inches. If you’re a reader, you’ll probably want to head over to last week’s post, where I go into much greater detail.

A Year-Long Journey I Never Could Have Imagined

It started with this simple blog post on November 19, 2012. One of the shortest posts I had ever written or have written since. (Only 392 words.) I had no idea what was about to take place over the next 15 months. I have been chomping at the bit to tell you about it. However, some things have been finalized to the point I can now talk about it publicly. If you have ever wondered what Paul meant when he referred to God as “Him who is able to immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine,” this story is for you…

#013: Two 4-Month Challenges That Will Help You Know and Love the Bible [Podcast]

My request? Give me four months. My promise? You will undertand – and enjoy – the Bible more than you ever thought possible. This episode wraps up our 10-part series looking at each of the tips from my book 10 Tips for Liking the Bible (Because Believing It’s True Is Not Enough)

#010: When Reading Your Study Bible Might Do More Harm Than Good [Podcast]

Before you get mad at me and fill the comments with all the reasons you love your study Bible and would never be without it, notice the first word of the title. “When.”

There is a time for using your study Bible. (I happen to love mine.) And there is a time to NOT use it. To lay it aside. To read the Bible. ONLY the Bible. This episode explores when that time is.

#006: Why Does My Mind Wander When I Read the Bible (and What Do I Do About It)? [Podcast]

“Do you struggle with your mind wandering when you read the Bible?”

I have asked this exact question hundreds of times to thousands of people. Without fail, a vast majority of eyes roll and heads nod.


If you rolled your eyes, sighed, and nodded your head when you read that question (or even the title to this post), this episode is for you.

Here is a taste of what you’ll find in this episode:

Final Day of Launch Week: 3 Lessons, 3 (more) Giveaways, and 1 Reminder

This has been quite a week. [Insert understatement here.]

Old Time - FDP -  Salvatore VuonoI don’t think I have ever had so much fun, been so excited, and so exhausted in the same week.

Before moving on, first the reminder:

Today is the last day to get your $100+ of freebies

Ok, I’ll try to make this quick. (Mainly because it’s after 1am!)

Lesson 1: Having a team is way better than flying solo.

I have had the coolest Launch Team on the planet. Almost 100 people joined a private Facebook group and read, reread, critiqued, encouraged, and prayed me through this whole process. The book is way better because of them. (Not to mention with way fewer typos.)

Heck…the Study Guide wouldn’t have existed without them telling me I needed to write it.

Launch Week Day TWO: One Of The Coolest Days Ever!

First things first: Congratulations to Frank Tan (KidMin Pastor from Georgia) who won the five books giveaway from yesterday. He already replied and said he’s giving them away to his Sunday School team. Very cool.

NOTE: Don’t forget to grab your bonuses if you bought your book yesterday. Here’s how to claim your freebies!

Family jumping in SandCan I just say…Yesterday was a blast!

I had no idea what to expect and I was overwhelmed. I had to force myself not to even glance at my email, Facebook, or Twitter before hanging out with Jesus a bit. I knew that once I looked…I would be running the rest of the day.

And oh boy, was I right.

Time with Jesus = Peaceful and Relaxing.

The rest of the day = An Amazingly Wonderful Blur!

Here’s the rundown…of what I can remember. (Make sure you at least scroll down to see the very cool picture at the end. I was amazed!)
