I just got a call from a dear friend. He is a pastor. He needs to lose some weight. He read that I need to lose some weight. He challenged me to a weight-loss race. He has to lose 30 pounds. I need to lose 40 pounds. Here’s the deal: the first one to his goal is the winner (the big loser). The prize is this a hard-bound edition of Lectures to My Students by Charles Spurgeon published by Banner of Truth.
I have a copy but mine is an old tattered paperback version that looks like this. So you can imagine how excited I am about having a nice, new copy to read when I go to speak at camps this summer.
(Pastor “you-know-who” I will not reveal your identity unless you want me to, but you might want to start saving your money now because I speak at Lake Ann in mid-July and I plan to take my fresh, new, book with me).
