I was listening to the local Christian radio station last week and the host announced that they were going to hold a little contest. The fifth caller to the radio station would win a book by Ravi Zacharias. Being a fan of this particular apologist, I called the radio station and encountered an answering machine where I was asked to leave my name, number and address. Okay. So I did. And I forgot about it.
I got a phonecall a couple days ago. It was a strangely familiar, smooth-n-smarmy voice saying I had won Ravi Zacharias's book.
It came in the mail today. It's actually an autobiography, " Walking East to West." I adore autobiographies. I am eagerly looking forward to delving into its pages.
A curious bit o' trivia: the book is signed. It says, "With appreciation, Ravi." Wow. Ravi Zacharias appreciates ME!
Yes, I will deign to accept your congratulations.
I like winning things.
