Happy Fifth Birthday (And get a free book!)
Escape to Reality is five years old today. If E2R were a child, it would be starting school. How time flies when you’re growing in grace!
Five years ago E2R had no articles, no subscribers, no comments, no archives, no shares, no nothing. Now the website has 400+ articles on 700+ scriptures that have attracted 15,000+ comments from readers in 200+ countries. That’s a lot of plusses!
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have visited E2R in the past five years. Whether you’re an occasional reader or a subscriber, thanks for stopping by. I trust it has been as rewarding an experience for you as it has for me. Grace is fun!
If you’re a long-term reader you’ll know that I like to give things away on birthdays, and this year I have a very special treat for you.
Next week I will be releasing my new book Grace Classics. This book, which follows Grace Disco, is Volume 2 of E2R’s Greatest Hits. It has some of the very best articles from the past five years – all polished and shiny – along with original material. I will tell you more about Grace Classics in my next post. But if you can’t wait, you can get the book right now on Amazon (or pdf) and this leads me to this year’s special deal:
Buy Grace Classics today and I will give you a copy of Grace Disco for free! This offer expires tomorrow, so get in quick!
But wait, there’s more!
Buy Grace Classics in paperback, and you can also get the Kindle version of Grace Classics for free!
“Paul, I can’t wait to read your new book! How do I take advantage of these awesome offers?”
It’s simple. Once you’ve ordered your book, email your Amazon receipt to: —————-
You will then receive a redemption code that will enable you to download your free PDF copy of Grace Disco. This special birthday offer expires midnight tomorrow and is limited to the first 1,000 downloads, so get in quick.
“And how do I get the free Kindle version of Grace Classics?”
Buy the paperback from Amazon.com and you will automatically qualify to get the Kindle version for free (through the Kindle-matching program).
Thanks again for sharing the journey. The past five years have been great, and the best is yet to come!
Thank you for the offer Paul. But always think of your third world readers, who are unable to buy your books from Amazon due to no credit card transaction in our country. I am writing you this from Ethiopia. Thank you. Solomon
I would be interested to hear from other readers in this situation, especially those who have figured out solutions. PayPal works in just about every country (and doesn’t require a credit card). Although Amazon doesn’t officially accept PayPal, I believe there are workarounds, though I have not tried them.
Update: I just googled this and found several ways to access Amazon without a credit card are described here and here. Hope this helps.
Workaround for European customers: go to amazon.co.uk instead of amazon.com. There your debit card of your bank (maestro) will work, it won’t work at amazon.com. I’m from Belgium, I tried to buy the e-book but it’s for UK customers only. I can only buy it in paperback, which is a lot more expensive due to shipping.
If you’re after the ebook, did you try the pdf option? That didn’t work?
The pdf option does work with paypal ! I didn’t see that option. Thx.
Congratulations Paul on E2R’s 5th birthday. What a wonderful teacher, resource, apologist, theologian, and encourager you’ve been for the Church at large, besides pioneering a furrow for many of us to follow! You’re surfing a wave that can only grow bigger, higher and further! Truly the best is yet to come for you and E2R. Well done mate! 😊👍👆
Thanks, Peter. I know you’ve been here for most of the five years and I have appreciated your regular encouragement. Thank you.
Thanks for your generous offer – I bought both kindle editions because this offer made me aware of these books. Not looking for a freebie – just want to thank you for operating in such a classy way!
Thanks for changing lives
Can you send me a copy of your book? Charles Brockington…
By ordering on AMAZON SMILE you can also have a donation sent to your charity of choice plus buy your book. Win, win! Heather Boothe
Great idea, Heather.
Doggone it, Paul, I already bought both books as soon as I saw them available! Please give my free copy to someone else!
Good morning Paul,
Well I don’t know if it’s morning where you are!
If I have discerned things correctly I believe you are in New Zealand. I look forward to one day visiting there.
What a great offer for people like me. I will be able to give away the paperback version of classics and read my favorite format digital.
I must say, I started this walk over 35 years ago in Grace. Of course you know what happens while we’re sitting in the pews. For the past three years, I have enjoyed my re-found freedom in Jesus!
Every week I sit under the awesome teaching of one of the great leaders of today, who is STANDING in the grace of Jesus. But I must say emphatically, that you are the best prolific writer of grace, second to Paul, of ALL Time! I have and continue to read some of the best, so I believe this to be a warranted opinion.
Once again thank you for a great birthday gift!🎉🎈💥😎
Thanks, M&M, for your kind words. I’m blushing here – and yes it is morning here. About 30 minutes to sunrise.
I’m sorry to hear that Darlene. Non-US prices are based on the US price and I had expected that the Kindle-matching program would apply worldwide. (I don’t have options when setting it up – just a box to tick.) Are other non-US readers finding the same thing? If so, let me know and I will contact the Kindle people.
I am in the middle of reading your book “The Gospel in Ten Words” and I am just loving it! Just so good! I look forward to reading more of your material such as “Grace Classics” and will order soon. Yesterday, I also came across your “Hyper-Grace” (Star Wars style) on YouTube. I want to let you know that it is just awesome and I enjoyed it very much and will be recommending it to all my friends to view. Keep the great material coming!
Hello. Did not receive free E Book, Out Of The Jungle when I signed up a few weeks ago. Thanks.
Life is a journey..not so much a destination, but a Transformation
Sorry to hear that Carol. I’ve just emailed it you. Please check your inbox.
Congratulation for that wonderful achievement. May God continue to bless your ministry in a powerful way, so that your ministry can continue to be a blessing to many. While reading that post, I can see that you talk about different things such as number of publications, comments, scripture verses that you’ve covered, and so forth. You don’t mention how much traffic that you’re getting after that 5 years.
Thank you, Arold. Re: traffic: there’s a number on the bottom right of the sidebar (on the website) if you’re interested.
I see this number 3,541,513 from the blog stats. This is the number of page views that your site has gotten from its inception. I usually see gotquestions.org which is a very authoritative website publishes on a monthly basis how much traffic they get. My conclusion is that this ministry is really having a huge impact on many people.
Happy Birthday E2R! Just FYI, 5 is the number of Grace, if you’re into that kind of stuff. 🙂 Thanks for the offer Paul! I just ordered my copy! Super excited to get this message of the Gospel of Grace into the hearts of as many people as possible! God bless you Bro! (from Dallas, Texas, USA)
Happy Birthday! Congratulations!
I thank you for dilengently showing us JESUS finished work. Happy 5 (grace) birthday!!!
