Free Book Giveaway: More Ways To Win

A Free Book Giveaway Every Thursday!

This Week's Winner: The winner of last week's book entitled 'Jesus is Coming For You' by R.A. Torrey is...

Randy Scott!

Thank you for visiting and supporting the Baptist Muse. I will have your book shipped out to you as soon as I can get your mailing information. You can email your mailing information to me at Congratulations! Leave a comment on here as soon as you send the email. Sometimes the email gets caught in my spam box and the comment will allow me to know what time period to look for the email in my spam box. Thank you for understanding.

Next Week's Free Book: This week's book is 'The Martyrs Torch: The Message of the Columbine Massacre' by Bruce Porter. The book is brand new and is completely free to the winner of my newest competition.

Product Description: In every age of history, darkness has threatened to extinguish the light. But also in every age of history, heroes and heroines of the faith rose up to hold high the torch of their testimony--witnesses to the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. On a fateful spring day at Columbine High, others lifted up their torch and joined the crimson path of the martyrs' way. We cannot forget their sacrifice. A call is sounding forth from Heaven: "Who will take up the martyrs' torch which fell from these faithful hands?" Will you?

Now There Are Even More Ways To Win!

Contest Rules: There are now many ways to participate in the Free Book Giveaway! You can earn 'tickets' for the 'drawing' in five different ways.

  • Leave a comment: 1 Ticket - You may post a maximum of three non-continuous comments per post. Non-continuous means that you may not have two comments on the same post in a row. Someone else must comment before you can submit your second comment on that particular post. Each comment is worth one ticket.
  • Suggest a Joke or Resource: 2 Tickets - You may suggest any joke that you can come up with for me to add to the newly created jokes section of this website. You may also suggest a valid resource that falls under any one of the resource categories that I have listed. You may post a maximum of three jokes or resources per week. Each joke suggested is worth two tickets.
  • Subscribe to the Email Updates: 3 Tickets - You may sign up for email updates of The Baptist Muse by submitting your email address in the form on the sidebar. You will be given three tickets into the Free Book Giveaway for every week that the email subscription remains active. Subscribing to The Baptist Muse email updates is worth three tickets.
  • Link to an Article: 4 Tickets - If you link to any of the articles posted here at The Baptist Muse, a link back to you will be created at the footer section of the article. This is called a trackback. If for some reason the track back does not appear, leave a comment informing me of the link. There is no limit to the number of links you may create. Each link is worth four tickets.
  • Link via Button or Banner: 5 Tickets - I have created a number of eye-catching buttons and banners that can be used to link to The Baptist Muse. These graphics can be found here. By placing one of these on your site you will receive credit toward the free book every week that it is on your site. Each type of button or banner placed on your site will be counted only once. Each button or banner posted is worth five tickets.

The cut-off for all tickets is Wednesday night at midnight. Everything posted after that is good towards the giveaway on the following Thursday. This will allow me to have a clear time-line for when I can post the awards each week.

To determine the winner, I use a random number generator using the total number of tickets to set the limits of the generator. I will then begin counting through the tickets. The first ticket earned this week will be number one. The second ticket earned this week will be number two. Etc. Whatever the number generator spits out at me, that is the winner of the book. I will then announce the winner and contact you to get your mailing address and I will send it right out to you!

Good luck and happy blogging!

  • Suggest a joke:


    Ed was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary.

    His wife was really angry. She told him, "Tomorrow morning I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in less then 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE!!" The next morning Ed got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, and brought the box back in the house.

    She opened it and found a brand new Bathroom Scale. Ed has been missing since Friday. Please pray for him.

  • Kristina,

    Being married, I had heard the Woman Hitler - Mother In Law joke before, but the others I had not heard. That is a very funny list of anagrams!

    By Blogger Diane Cardot, At 4:28 PM  

  • I really enjoyed reading that list and I am definitely going to add it to the jokes section of the web site. Thanks for submitting it!

  • Thanks for commenting on my blog. My Dad used to teach at CBC in Lexington. I was also there waiting for us to be able to move to Germany. I'm very good friends with Kimmie Spears. My dad's name is Dave Noffsinger. He was there in 2001. We were stationed in Fort Belvoir VA and visiting the Tomb many times. I'm praying for you and thanks for serving our country. God Bless!

  • I met you father when I visited the college a year or two prior to actually going to college there. Wow! I guess it is a small world. Also, when were you guys stationed at Ft. Belvoir? That is where my wife and I live right now!

    Got a joke for ya!


    Mrs. Jones had been a staple of her local congregation for many years and that is why her absence was noticed lately. The pastor decided to drop by her house to check up on her after the Sunday service. He knocked on her door and being that she's nearly 85 it took her a bit to get to the door.
    "Hello, who is it?" she asked.
    "It's Pastor Smith", he answered.
    "OH Hi-Come in, Come in, how's the ministry doing?" She said.
    "Very well, I just wanted to make sure your prayer needs are being met."
    "Oh honey, I haven't felt well lately but I'm getting better"
    Just then the phone rang and she excused herself to get it. The pastor sat near a table with an old reader's digest and a bowl of peanuts. After 15 minutes, then 20, he heard his stomach growl and began to get restless. He started in on the bowl of peanuts and began reading. After 45 minutes, he suddenly realized that he had eaten all of the peanuts.
    Right then Mrs. Jones returned and said, "Oh I sure am sorry, that was my sister from Pittsburgh. She only calls once per month so when she does we have to catch up on everything." The pastor feeling a little embarrassed said "I must also apologize, for while you were gone I got hungry and ate all the peanuts in your little bowl there. Please, forgive me" he said.
    Mrs. Jones replied, "Oh that's ok, without my teeth, all I can do is just suck the chocolate off of them!" she says.

  • That is very funny. Great joke. I love it. My wife thinks that it is very disgusting!

    By Blogger Nicholas Z. Cardot, At 9:01 PM  

  • I agree that it is gross. When I read it, my first thought was, "EEWWWW!" Then I laughed. :)

    By Blogger Nicole, At 12:11 AM  

  • Nicole
    The peanuts joke is funny but it is also disgusting. I have a lot of siblings and that is something they would do.

  • I got this in an email, and I know most of these to be true with some of my family that lives in WV. I thought you would like them!


    1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.

    2. Turn your cap right, your head ain't crooked.

    3. Let's get this straight; it's called a "dirt road." I drive a pickup truck because I want to! No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Mersadies. Drive it or get out of the way!

    4. They are cattle. They're live steaks. That's why they smell funny to you. They smell like money to us. Get over it. Don't like it? Rt. 50 goes east and west, I-79 goes north and south. Pick one.

    5. So you have a $60,000 car. We're impressed! We have $150,000 corn pickers and hay balers that are driven only 3 weeks a year.

    6. So every person in West Virginia waves. It's called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

    7. If that cell phone rings while an 8-point buck and 3 does are coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand! You just better hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

    8. Yeah, we eat catfish &Trout You really want sushi & caviar? You can get it at the corner bait shop.

    9. The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's a holiday held the Monday before Thanksgiving.

    10. We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless of age.

    11. No, there's no "vegetarian special" on the menu. Order steak. Or you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham & turkey.

    12. When we put a spread on a table, there are three main dishes: meats, vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup. Oh, yeah.... We don't care what other folks call that stuff you eat... IT AIN'T REAL CHILI!! And its Sauce for hotdogs,not Chili!

    3. You bring "coke" into my house, it better be brown, wet and served over ice.

    14. You bring "Mary Jane" into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.

    15. College and High School Football is as important here as the Lakers and the Knicks, and we GET loud when we watch them!

    16. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards -- it spooks the fish.

    17. Colleges? We have them all over. We have State Universities, Community Colleges, and Vo-techs. They come outta there with an education plus a love for God and country, and they still wave at everybody when they come for the holidays.

    18. We have a whole ton of folks in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. So don't mess with us. If you do, you will get whipped by the best.

    19. Turn down that car stereo! That thumpity-thump ain't music, anyway. We don't want to hear it anymore than we want to see your underwear. Refer back to #1.

    20. 4 inches of snow ain't no blizzard - it's a flurry. Drive like you got some sense in it, and DON'T take all our bread, milk, and toilet Paper from the grocery stores. This ain't Alaska, worst case you may have to live a whole day without croissants. The pickups with snow blades will have you out the next day.

  • That is very funny and I will definitely want to add that to my jokes section. Thank you for submitting it. Where in the world do you guys get all of your cheesy...errr...I mean funny jokes?
