Share Some Love – Win a Book

Free stuff. People like it and it’s a good way to allow me to say THANKS to everyone who has been reading my blog, newsletter, and book. So here’s the deal, simply make a comment to this post and you will be entered into a drawing to win a copy of Peppermint-Filled Piñatas.

Your comment can be whatever you want… to say hello, share a thought or encouraging word. On Monday, August 20th I’ll randomly pick a few people who have posted comments and they will win a copy of my book.

(by the way, when you comment there is no need to list your mailing address or anything like that, I’ll get that from you via email if you are one of the lucky “commenters” who wins).

  1. Hey Eric! Thanks for all you do and for the humility you do it with! Mosaic is an inspiration to many and I am thankful to be able to call you guys friends. :)

  2. Hey Eric, remember me? I was Mosaic’s only pregnant intern from three years ago. I love keeping up with you via your blog. Congrats on the new book.

  3. Catherine says:

    Eric it was great to hear you speak when you came to Genesis!

  4. Hi Eric, I enjoyed listening to your messages on the book, and thanks for adding me as a friend in the M network! God Bless!

  5. Eric is a really nice guy.

    Nice guys share stuff.

    Please share with me.

  6. Roses are red,
    I fish with a hook,
    I really hope,
    I win a book!

  7. I bought the book last week, but if I get picked I’ll be a really nice guy and give it away to spread more of the word on love.

  8. Thanks for speaking at my church (Ecclesia) a couple weeks ago! Peppermint-filled pinatas is a great resource that we’ll be using in a small group I’m leading this fall at school.

  9. Need the book in KC

  10. Eric! What is up man? Its me PC, from The Gathering up in Roseville, CA….remember SPEED SCRABBLE at the retreat? We have been getting a hold of PFP up here among the Gathering staff, and its becoming “that book” that everyone is wanting to read….including me…I want to read the book man, and its kind of like food; its always better when its free.

  11. Hi Eric,
    Thanks for showing that being a Christian doesn’t meant that you have to give up having a sense of humor.
    Dance on brother!

  12. Eric, I miss you! Charles told me he saw you at a meeting at Pastor Erwin’s house recently.

  13. Eric – Thanks for the post and for your writing.

  14. Lorna Scott says:

    Hi Eric,
    After reading your interview for Catalyst,and an excerpt from your book, I can’t wait to read your entire book! Thank you for spurring on those of us who belong to Christ to be authentic people who meet people where they are at. I am part of a church in New England which shares your heart. Keep up the awesome work!

  15. I am going to be reading it soon with a group…sort of like a book club. I am a sucker for book discussions. I would love getting the book for free. Count me in. :)

  16. I forgot I got a new e-mail address. If I win, check out this e-mail. Thanks.

  17. I love reading your blogs…I read through RSS feeds though so I rarely comment…but I’m all for trying to win a free book!

    Keep up the good writing!

  18. I really appreciate what I’ve been reading and look forward to hearing more. Enjoy the tour!

  19. Great to meet ya at Origins in May. Had an amazing time. I really look forward to seeing the movement continue.

  20. Thanks for podcasting your P-FP sermons! I appreciate the challenge of applying God’s truth to the everyday.

  21. John Roman says:


    I’m a small church pastor of a bi-cultural church in El Paso (we could have had lunch the other day when you were here) that could use some multi-cultural encouragement. Consider sending me a book.

  22. Love your newsletter! Would love to read the book. Keep spreading Christ’s word and the love.

  23. Love your newsletter. I’ll bet the book is awesome too. Keep spreading Christ’s word and the love!

  24. I’ve really been enjoying you on the Mosaic podcasts!

  25. yay free! with free books, comes my eternal and undying love…

  26. Love listening to your podcasts at mosaic and looking forward to you coming to Scotland

  27. I really enjoyed the podcasts…and I can’t wait to read the book. The story of how you came up with the title of your book reminds me of my grandfather. He went to a Bar Mitzvah and was supposed to bring candy. He brought some peppermints or butterscotch candy…something decidedly not soft. What he didn’t know was that they were going to throw the candy down at the kids at the bar mitzvah.

    Looking forward to readying your book!

  28. Jessica Joy says:

    Hey! I’m thinking of doing a book discussional group at Origins in NYC on Peppermint. . .loved the podcast series! We can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!!!!

  29. ooh! ooh! pick me! pick me!

  30. i think you need to get the book sent over here to South Africa…this is an open invitation to you guys to come here and share your stories, they encourage and challenge us to do the same….to also share our stories of hope, reconcilliation and restoration…

  31. I’ve enjoyed listening to you on Mosaic podcasts, and on the Rick Warren podcast, as well. I’m inspired by what you guys are doing and writing. Keep it up!

    Oh, and pick me! Pick me!

  32. I love Peppermint Filled Pinatas!

    It’s on my Amazon wish list and can’t wait to read beyond the first chapter.

    But I’m a poor seminary student. So the purchase will have to wait until I have a break in textbook purchases.


  33. Well, hmmm. I thought I already left a post here for the book give-away, but it must have been on another entry. So, here’s my post! Your brother was plugging your book in S.S. last week; you should make him your agent.

    “The Waco Connection”

  34. The only thing cooler than buying your book would be to win a copy of it from you. Seriously, I have “Peppermint Filled Pinatas” on my Amazon wishlist and it would be truly awesome to win it…either way, I am very stoked to read it soon.

    Best wishes

  35. yea free stuff!

    have recently discovered your blog and I am going to start blogging soon. Thanks for sharing resources through the great podcast from mosaic. I am the pastor of a small church in kansas that serves a poor community. Thanks.

  37. Thanks for posting all of your thoughts and for the book give away…we need a copy out here in the midwest.. :-)


  38. Hey Eric,
    I can’t wait to read the book. I listened to your message series on the podcast recently, and that’s got me even more excited about it. I’m a little sad your book tour didn’t come through Nebraska, but I dont’ expect to see too many tours come through here. Send a book my way.

  39. shoot, I guess I should learn to read dates. Oh well.

  40. I had a pinata once. It loved it and treasured it and I called it “Joselito.” But then one day all my friends came over and blindfolded me and then the next thing I know my poor Joselito was ripped to shreds. It was a sad day for me, but I’ve been told that your book could help me get past it.
    Thanks for all you do.
    Viva la pinatas.
