Friday Is for Freebies: God Anthology and the HCSB Study Bible

This week’s giveaway  includes The God Anthology, a new DVD study from Mark Batterson. The God Anthology guides groups on an exploration into six of the critical aspects of God’s character and personhood. In some respects, this study captures the essence of A.W. Tozer’s classic The Knowledge of the Holy for a new generation. But what makes The God Anthology original is the way music and media are incorporated into the experience. National Community Church worship staff has written, composed, and arranged original music for each of the critical aspects of who God is. This experience will not only utilize these songs worshipfully, but will also integrate the use of QR codes, video, and other forms of media as well.

Also included is the black, genuine leather version of the HCSB Study Bible. This Bible has a retail price of $79.99 and features 15,000 study notes, 290 Hebrew and Greek word studies, 66 highly detailed book introductions, 62 maps, 27 topical articles, 20 charts, and 18 illustrations, all focusing on the most important topics and questions in Bible study.

To be eligible to win, answer the following question:

What is your favorite song used in corporate worship?

The deadline to enter is midnight this Saturday.  We will draw the winner from the entries on Monday morning.

    Bless the Lord, Oh my soul… I really like 10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman. God has his hand on this man, and he has been leading worship all around the globe with the songs he has written over the last 20yrs. This one seems to have been ripped right out of psalms, calling us to Bless the Lord.

  2. Brandon mills says

    10,000 reasons by Matt Redman, you’re beautiful by Phil Wickam, and I’m really starting to draw to anything done by Citizens from Mars Hill!

  3. Jason Adams says

    You want me to pick just one? haha – if done well, “How He Loves” by Crowder is amazing. “I Will Rise” and “Sing, Sing, Sing” by Tomlin are also amazing. :-)

  4. Sherry Goth says

    “Amazing Grace”. Being on praise team, I am blessed to see the Holy Spirit use the words to this old hymn shut out all distractions and focus all of us on His truly Amazing Grace. When we sing “when we’ve been there 10,000 years, bright shining as the sun!” or the newer addition ” my chains are gone, I’ve been set free” the faces in that santuary are indescribable! A glimpse of heaven!

  5. Jonathan Smith says

    “Before the Throne of God Above” I often think about the lyrics and every single line just blows me away.

  6. Brodie Smith says

    Just about anything by David Crowder*Band. Probably All This Glory or Oh Great Love of God. Difficult choice.

  7. Brian B. says

    Days of Elijah and How Great is Our God are the first ones to come to mind.

    But it happens often in the service that the leader will lead a song that hasn’t been sung in a while and I’ll think “I love this song.”

  8. John Turner says

    Because He Lives by the Gaithers. With all of the troubles of life these days, be wise Christ lives I can face tomorrow!

  9. Sha'rrell Haws says

    I have more than one really… music has always been a way for me to express my thoughts and feelings when I couldn’t any other way…. one of them is the new version of Amazing Grace….. “My chains are gone, I’ve been set free, My God, My Savior has ransomed me….”

    I just went to a Chirs Tomlin worship experience, they called it a concert. Fell in love with the song “God’s Dance Floor. ” At least I think that is what it is called, I know that is how the chorus goes.

  11. chris w. says

    It’s hard to pick just one. The 3 that resonate with me the most in this season of life include “Sovereign Over Us” by Aaron Keyes, “Fall Afresh” by Jeremy Riddle, and the classic “Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me”. Seriously people… sing “wash me Savior, or I die!” puts things into perspective very quickly!

  12. says

    Like many have said, this is a hard choice as there are so many wonderful and magnificent songs to pick from. But the one that comes to mind quickly is Great I Am. This song really grabs hold of the passion and desire of the congregation to praise God Almighty with all they have and pushes them into a powerful worship together.

  13. Tim Buczek says

    I’d have to go with “Come Thought Fount” because of the joy-driven theology throughout it and the joy-invoking melody that carries it. “Teach me some melodious sonnet, sung by flaming tongues above!”

  14. says

    A Mighty Fortress is Our God! It resounds with power and strength that our Lord Jesus Christ emulates and tells of the victory against evil powers that has happened and will continue to happen till Satan is finally conquered and put in his rightful place.

  15. Dan Brubacher says

    This changes all the time as new songs are written that help to express what is in my heart. But right now, some of my favs included “10,000 Reasons,” “Holy,” “Here for You,” and “Open Up the Heavens.”

  16. John Dye says

    O praise Him – david crowder
    Beautiful things – Gungor
    Mountains Tremble – Delirious
    This is my desire – jeremy camp
    Your love never Fails – Jesus Culture
    How he loves us – david crowder
    Nothing but the Blood – matt Redman

  17. Scott Meier says

    Ok, not really a normal worship song, but I was blown away when we sand the Doxology at the Baptism by the Bay and I actually remembered the words after 30 years :) That was awesome.

  18. Andre Nauta says

    Favorite song right now is “I Am Redeemed” by Big Daddy Weave. Favorite song used in worship is “10,000 Reasons” by Chris Tomlin.

  19. Cindy Rauser says

    I have to say corporately it is still “Revelation Song” by Philips, Craig and Dean. Although, privately “Worn” by Tenth Avenue North is becoming a favorite.
