Bible in 90 Days **A Giveaway**

If you’ve been following my blog (or my tweets), you know that I decided to take the challenge with other bloggers to read through the Bible in 90 days. There are almost 100 bloggers participating and many more people who don’t blog but are also reading along. I love the accountability and the online discussion of Scripture.

When I read that Zondervan has an NIV copy of the Bible that is an aid to this type of reading, I was so excited. The great thing about this Bible [in 90 days] is that it is a regular Bible – it just has markers in it to indicate the readings for the day. The other part I love is that it is a large print edition. I got bifocals when I was 18 because of my reading habits, so this feature is especially important to me (and I should mention that I’m not yet 30…*ehem*). When you are doing large chunks of reading every day, it’s nice to be able to see what you’re reading.

**Giveaway**

Zondervan has graciously provided me with a Bible to give away to one of my readers (can I say “lucky” readers if I’m talkin’ about a Bible giveaway?!). I have to tell you, I am so tempted to keep this Bible for myself…but I’m going to be gracious and pass it along! (I even caught my husband cracking it open last night – at which point, I promptly snatched it out of his hand and told him it was for a giveaway … and I handed him one of our own copies.)

A few things about the contest:

**Anyone can enter (you don’t have to be participating in the challenge) – whether you would like to read this yourself or give it as a gift.

**All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what your plans are for the Bible (i.e. are you participating in the challenge? Do you want to gift it to someone? Have you been thinking of joining a Bible plan and want to try it out? Do you just need a Bible?). There’s no wrong answer!!

**One comment per person, please.

Additional entries for:

***Posting about this contest on Facebook with a link back here (be sure to come back here and leave another comment)

***Twittering about this contest with a link back here (again, be sure to come back here and leave a comment – I don’t always trust pingbacks to work properly). You may have one tweet per day. Consider using this script:

Enter to win a @Zondervan copy of the Bible in 90 Days http://tinyurl.com/ybgx8ca (via @wholelivinggal) #b90days

***Blog about either this contest or the 90-day challenge and include a link back to this contest (again and again, be sure to come back here and leave me a comment with a link to your blog).

***For these additional entries, be sure to come back here and leave me a comment with a link. I will be drawing the winner via random.org from the comments that are listed here. I’m honestly not that tech savvy, so help a sister out and just leave comments!

***Make sure your comment includes a way for me to contact you if you are the winner.

Okay, that’s all!

Contest ends Thursday at 9pm EST – at which point I’ll draw a winner and announce here and on twitter.

I’m so excited to give away this Bible to someone!

    Sweet! I’ve been using the One Year Bible, and this sounds like a great next step.

  4. I would love this. I might use it for myself, but I like to keep a bible on hand to have to give away when I meet someone who needs one and this one sounds like a great one for that.

    I would LOVE to win the 90 days Bible! I couldn’t afford to buy one, so I’ve been trying to read along in my regular print Bible. I’m legally blind in my left eye, so it’s a challenge at best! The large print would be a HUGE blessing!

    I’ve joined in the challenge already reading through a copy of the Message that we have – my husband was intrigued when he heard that this version you just read 12 pgs a day…I think winning would help him decide to give it a try

    I have been following your blogs for a while, and I love them. I saw that you have embarked on the challenge and I think it is awesome. If I were to win, I would read the bible myself and then sign the inside cover, and pass on to someone else asking them to do the same. Sign, and pass on when they are done. Blessings on you as you are in home stretch of pregnancy with Baby #2.

    I would use this Bible. Right now we are on the Dave Ramsey plan and getting an extra Bible is not in the budget, not when I have a perfectly good one in the drawer. But I sure wish I could use the official Bible only because it would be easier to keep track of my readings!

  20. I would love to win this bible for my daughter. She reads the bible slowly, but not completely. I know this challenge is just what she has been waiting for. However, her circumstances do not allow her to purchase it herself.

  24. I haven’t been doing the challenge this time, but I’m thinking seriously about trying to catch up–I would love to have this is use, not just this time, but in the future. I like one of the earlier commenter’s idea of using it, signing it, and passing it along to someone else!

    I’m glad I found out on Dec. 31 you’re doing this – I needed a challenge and this is one i’ve never taken – have read through the Bible many times. It’s harder per day than i thought! I’ll give the Bible to anyone who wants to do it, too!
