RAAN Father’s Day Giveaway


On Twitter today, the Reformed African American Network announced their Father’s Day Giveaway Sweepstakes (info below). I am grateful for their ministry.

Last week, concerning Eric Mason’s, Manhood Restored, I posted on Facebook,

If you are looking for a Father’s Day gift that will do more than make dad smell good, dress better, or eat well, get him a copy of Manhood Restored by Eric Mason. Before you say, “He never will read it,” don’t discount the Holy Ghost and give him lest honor than you would give Gold Toe, K&G, Giorgio Armani, or Carolina Kitchen! Get the book for dad and get him off the fence of mediocre manhood – that natural substitute for real manhood. I heard Eric Mason say, “The manliest thing a man can do is worship God.” He is absolutely right: One is not a whole man until he fulfills all his Creator and Savior has designed him to be.

Similarly, of Where Are All the Brothers?, I wrote on Facebook,

If your dad, granddad, uncle, cousin, nephew, son, grandson, brother, husband, or other object of Father’s Day love has not met Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Savior and Lord, who died for our sins and rose again from the dead victoriously, why only get him another trinket when his soul is in jeopardy this very hour? Where Are All The Brothers? will address objections he has to Jesus and the church and points him to the truth of the Gospel (and many other books will do the same). Celebrate the dads in your life, and help unbelieving dads hear the Gospel. Invite your dad to church on Father’s Day, hook him up with dinner, and talk to him about His soul and Jesus. Be prayerful, bold, courageous, and humble.

Kindle and Dad’s Day, hint, hint….

I have been enjoying my Kindle, Wi-Fi from Amazon for a little more than two months. It is a wonderful tool and is helping me stay organized in my reading. If you do not have a Kindle or other wireless reading device, I would encourage you to get one! At this point, I am carrying much of my summer reading on it, as well as about half of the St. John’s College Graduate Institute’s reading curricula (for many of these titles are free). I started with the Kindle app for my phone, which is a good place to start if you cannot afford the Kindle at this moment.

Father’s Day is around the corner! Why not get dad one? Surely he does not need another tie, pair of socks, cologne set, or game for his Xbox. But the vast majority of us could stand to read much more than we do. Reading helps us to love the Lord with our mind (although much more is involved in loving God with the mind than reading), to write better, and to think with greater cultural literacy.

Make it easy for dad! He might pick up more reading simply because of the novelty of the wireless reading device. You even can order him a few Kindle books as gifts.
