What? You’ve already purchased a copy? Well, if you win, then you’ll have an extra copy to give as a gift. (Don’t wait to give it as a Christmas gift: Advent begins December 1 this year, so you’ll want them to have it before then.)

To enter the drawing, just post a comment. I will draw one name at random and send you a copy. Be sure you have a valid email address registered here so I can contact you if you win.

I’ll leave the comments open through Wednesday, November 20. On Thursday, November 21, I’ll draw the winning name and post the winner’s name here on the blog.

In case you didn’t see the notice on Facebook today, Devotions for Rekindling Advent, a FREE booklet of daily devotions for the Advent season, is now available on the Rekindling Advent web page. Just scroll down to the words “Other Relevant Links” and there it is!

Also, the Kindle edition is now available on the book’s Amazon page.

    John Allen and I went to music school together. Believe me–he’s used to lengthy preparation for Christmas, such as Handel “Messiah” rehearsals starting in September or recording sessions for carols (which always seem to take place in April or July).

    But our culture has a great malaise of “Christmas Letdown.” Rediscovering Advent and the 12 Days of Christmas is the cure. Nobody advocates this better than John Allen!

    Cap’n, I remember being a part of a group that sang carols at the Galleria one season. We had to be there for the arrival of Santa Claus, which I think was around Veterans Day. Then we sang every weekend thereafter until Christmas. Oy.
