Trivia -- Final Segment

We've got a dead heat, here -- good thing I have lots of books to give away. Anna and Morning Rose are tied at 3 each. I struggled coming up with a final question that is fair to both of them (like obviously not something from my childhood that only Anna would know). So Josh suggested this final question, and our tiebreaker. You could probably find the answer if you clicked around enough on past posts, or looked online.

Segment 4 -- Church

8. What New Testament scholar is the preaching pastor at the church where Gretchen is a member?

***Edit: We have a winner! Morning Rose, if you would so kindly drop me an e-mail with your address, I will send you: Counseling: How to Counsel Biblically by John MacArthur, The Gender-Neutral Bible Controversy by Vern Poythress and Wayne Grudem, Build-a-Bible Personal size in King James Version (didn't you say that was your preference?) with a blue Bible cover and note pad (it's like a little set), and Mission Compromised by Oliver North (don't know if you like fiction, but I figured in a family of boys, it couldn't hurt!). I also have tossed in a couple of things for your boys (not books, just for fun). Total value? $138.27!! Keep in mind, I did not buy these things, they are a perk of working at a bookstore. Our runner up, Anna, is getting a consolation prize of a leather-bound NLT Bible (I use that for everyday reading), The Journals of Jim Elliot by Elisabeth Elliot and Does This Dress Make Me Look Fat? by Stephen James (not sure about that last one -- it might be dumb, it might be good for a laugh).

Thank you all for participating in The Gretchen Trivia Sweepstakes Challenge. I'd show you all what the prizes are but my camera is broken!

Morning Rose said...

Wow, I'm so excited to win!

Gretchen, could you post your email address so I can send you my address? I'm sure it's in an old post, but thought it might be easier if you posted it again here.

Thanks!

Sad to say I failed miserably. But there was a time when we were together daily and I could've answered more! :)
Miss you - when are you coming for a visit? Maybe Riley's wedding reception? It is Oct 21 (or whatever that Sunday is)

Morning Rose, Anna, the other option to finding the answer (hadn't thought of Josh's blog) was my recent post on commentaries -- I referenced Dr. Schreiner's commentary on Romans. Thanks for playing enthusiastically!

Morning Rose said...

Gretchen, I never answered your question about Bible versions. Yes, we use the King James. Thanks in advance for all the books!
