Giveaway: True Grit by Deborah Meroff

True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God's SakeFor several weeks I was posting small snippets from a book — True Grit: Women Taking On the World, for God’s Sake by Deborah Meroff — as part of my Lenten observation. When I informed the publisher, Authentic Media, of my plan, they graciously sent me a few copies of the book, to giveaway.

Besides the vast amount of data (which I quoted from), True Grit also contains touching narratives related to each theme or topic; in no way, even in this many posts, have I done more than scratch the surface of this book’s content. It’s well worth reading.

And now the time has come.

To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post with one thing you learned, or one thing that really struck you, from my 40-post series. I’ll accept entries through Tuesday, May 2, 2011. (One entry per person; U.S./Canada only.)

ETA: This giveaway is now closed. See who won.

  1. i thoroughly enjoyed your series…though enjoyed probably isn’t the right word….it was very powerful!
    i learned that in the us women are very lucky….the killings, the children ripped away, the extreme poverty….most us women don’t have to experience that!

  2. This is my favorite post:: https://wordlily.com/2011/04/22/lent-39-widows/

    While I knew there was violence against women in other parts of the world, specifically India (bride burnings), I hadn’t realized the violence in Africa. Thanks for bring all these women to our attention.

  4. It was very eye-opening and saddening to know that these things are still occurring at such alarming rates around the world.
