book giveaway #1!

As you know, I'm just getting started with WaterBrook Multnomah's blogging for books program. My first review will post later this week (I have to write it first!), and my second will go up next week. One of the things I really like about this program is that they sometimes will offer an extra copy of the reviewed book for bloggers to give away to one of their readers.

My first giveaway book is Tea With Hezbollah by Ted Dekker and Carl Medearis. I just started reading the book this afternoon, and so far it's incredibly engaging. Here's a snippet from the promotional material:
Tea with Hezbollah combines nail-biting narrative with the texture of rich historical background, as readers join novelist Ted Dekker and his co-author and Middle East expert, Carl Medearis, on a hair-raising journey. They are with them in every rocky cab ride, late-night border crossing, and back-room conversation as they sit down one-on-one with some of the most notorious leaders of the Arab world. These candid discussions with leaders of Hezbollah and Hamas, with muftis, sheikhs, and ayatollahs, with Osama bin Laden’s brothers, reveal these men to be real people with emotions, fears, and hopes of their own. Along the way, Dekker and Medearis discover surprising answers and even more surprising questions that they could not have anticipated—questions that lead straight to the heart of Middle Eastern conflict.

Through powerful narrative Tea With Hezbollah will draw the West into a completely fresh understanding of those we call our enemies and the teaching that dares us to love them. A must read for all who see the looming threat rising in the Middle East.

 If you're interested in entering the drawing for this book, just leave a comment on this post. I'll randomly draw a name and will announce the winner when I post the review the week of Jan. 25. (If you choose the "anonymous" option when you comment, be sure to give your first name in the body of the comment.)
