Freebie Friday 3 Rachel Held Evans Books

    This biblical view of manhood has always been rammed down my throat. I’ve always hated it, nor do I expect it in my own marriage.

  • willie deuel

    I’m going to read this book whether I win it here or not.

  • Gary

    Count me in David.

  • jason H

    well, it should be an interesting read.. I saw an interview with her last week.
    interesting to say the least.

  • Becky

    My interest is stirred up. Looks interesting!

  • Oh to win this would be a great day!!!

  • Paul

    Love the cartoons… most days.

  • Christina McCleary

    I thought I was the only one who braided challah on Friday.

  • Hazel Price

    Hi David. Am really enjoying your daily posts – very thought provoking. I live in the UK – would you be willing to post the book to me?

    All the best.


    P.S. Looks like I’m the first woman to comment on this issue!

  • Sounds like a very interesting read!

  • There are not words to describe how much I want to read this book. Rachel’s words have breathed life into my soul these past couple of years.

  • Marci

    This book is on my wish list… I would SO love to win!

  • OOOH! How exciting!

    I’m already signed up to the daily cartoon and furthermore, I will be back in New Brunswick later this month, so if I win, then all the better. =;-)


  • Josh Z

    I would like a copy!

  • Rob

    Count me in. If I don’t win, I’ll buy the book in any case.

  • I thought you said you hadn’t read the book?
    Why are you assuming that every woman who might consider herself is stupid?

  • Mary Sweet

    Should be an interesting read.

  • John

    Hi! Love your comics!

  • Rocco

    I would love to get a copy of this book!

  • Kathy Gibbs

    This book sound very interesting. Love the idea. Hope there are good ideas to show why biblical anything needs to be valued in its context and not pasted on our lives for today. Hey David love to win, is it possible to post to Melbourne Australia! Love kathy 🙂

  • Pat B

    I enjoyed Rachel’s reflections on MD’s ‘reading'(!) of Esther – so I’d love to have a peek at this 🙂

  • Amaris

    Crossed fingers as always!

  • Yes, please. 🙂

  • Steve

    Looking forward to reading this book- we’ll see if we can sneak it past council into our church library… (loved the “Biblical Parenting” cartoon, btw.)

  • Bridget Buchan

    Giving it a shot

  • dvid halley


  • I’ll probably win this time. I just bought a copy this week!

  • Scott Finn

    Hi. And loving the way you challenge your readers on a regular basis.

  • Thomas Zumbrock

    Hi! There, I did it. I already subscribe to your daily cartoon, which I love. Thanks for your witty way of challenging me in my spiritual walk.

  • Sandy

    I would love to have this book!

  • Bunny

    I read “Evolving in Monkey Town” when it first came out. Love her writing style!

  • Been following Rachel’s blog for some time. Would love a copy of her book.

  • Bridget Wilson Hall

    Would love a chance to read this book!

  • Ryan Jones

    Thus is cool, all based on yesterdays cartoon makes it very cool of the publisher.

  • Marcella

    Howdy 🙂

  • I enjoyed AJ Jacobs’ book “The Year of Living Biblically,” so this would be a nice complementary read.

    I already receive your daily cartoons. I must say I’m thankful that I’ve never experienced anything even close to the control and abuse you depict. However, in the “know thine enemy” vein, I appreciate the look at the shadow side of our intense desire for a sense of belonging.

  • Martha

    Loved yesterday’s post and love Rachel Held Evans!

  • Nansie Ike

    Would love it!

  • Amy

    Well, I’ve already read it, as I was on the launch team. But I only have a reader’s electronic copy, so I would love to have a “real” one. Planning to buy the book anyway if I don’t win, but free is good too. 🙂

  • Jo Anne Taylor

    A very humorous and exaggerated take on literal interpretation of instructions for women…. Living aside from the clan during menstruation literally when all was necessary was a trip to a local convenience store was funny. lol. Wonder what the pharmacies provided back then….She certainly praised her habby in an interesting way. lol. I’m sure many who aren’t well versed in scripture and proper interpretation will walk away thinking some quirky things if but for a short season but nothing too threatening to themselves I’m sure.

    I’m sure she’ll have some pretty insensitive critics from evangelical circles but they ought to just chill and enjoy the book for what it is, a very humorous spin and exaggeration and a genuine invitation to walk with God.

    Hoping she has continued success.
