John Gill’s Collected Writings Give Away!!!!!!

I have recently acquired a free copy of Gill’s collected Writings on CD Rom (version 2.2) from Baptist Standard Bearergills-works. I already had a copy of my own. So I’ve decided to give this one away here on this blog. I will take entries for the drawing until midnight Sunday April 12. Here is how to enter:

1st. Post a comment in the comments section of this post linking back to your own blog. The post should say something like, “Hi, I’m Jerad File and I blog here. Please enter me into the drawing to receive a free copy of Gill’s collected writings.”

2nd. Create a post on your blog linking back to this post. This post should say something like, “For the Cause of God and Truth is giving away a free copy of John Gill’s Collected Works. Enter the drawing here.”

3rd.When the drawing deadline comes. I will enter each name into a hat and select one. I’ll announce the winner here on the blog and they can contact me by email with their contact information so that I can send them the prize.

So far in the two months that this blog has been in existance we’ve had around 340 hits. I’m sure that several have been repeat readers. We’ve not been around a long time, and don’t have many readers yet, so I would guess your chances of winning are pretty good.

UPDATE: 03-30-09

Please make sure to check your link to make sure that it is correct. If I can’t verify that it is a valid web address I can’t verify that you have properly registered for the giveaway. Also, please place a link in the comment section that will lead directly to your post on the give away. That will help me out as I find the post on your blog. Thanks.

UPDATE: 04-01-09

I’ve been asked a question about whether more than one contributor for the same blog can enter. Since this blog is also a blog with more than one contributor I sympathize, and so I will allow entries from more than one contributor on the same blog.

Also, Thank you to the light hearted Calvinist for pointing our my spelling mistake. I’ve corrected it.

UPDATE: 04-05-09:

OK. I’ve decided what I’m going to do about making sure that the registration is done correctly. I will enter everyone that leaves a comment in the comment section linking to their blog; however, if I select one that has not created a post linking back here, I will throw it out at that time and select a new winner. Most entries have worked fine, but a few seem to have skipped step two.

UPDATE: 4-10-09:

Only a bit more than 2 days till I hold the drawing. I have been amazed at the response. Before starting this thing we had only received 340 hits in the two months since creating this blog. Now we are pushing 900 just 2 weeks later. Thank you to everyone who has participated. I will continue to take new entries until Midnight, this Sunday.

UPDATE: 4-12-09: I’m sorry that it didn’t occur to me until today that though it may not be midnight yet for me, it may be midnight for someone who registers in the UK. Just to be fair, I’ll be following GMT for entries because wordpress keeps track of statistics based on GMT. So if you want to enter, do so by Midnight GMT today, which I believe is about 7 p.m. for me here in Texas.

  18. OK. I’m game for a giveaway. Even though the winner has already been decreed and if it’s not me, was your offer truly “well-meant?” Which happened first, the decision for the contest or the decree of the winner? In the spirit of opinions concerning John Gill, of course. Whatever…..
