GOTW – Alba Gu Bra

This week we are giving away the Vision Forum Scotland faith and freedom tour entitled “How the Scots Saved Christendom”

You will have the chance to travel with my good friends Doug Phillips, and Colin Gunn, as well as Christian Historians Joe Morecraft, and Bill Potter to the land of Scotland and learn about the roots of Christianity in the British Isles.

For over 1600 years God has blest the men and women of that tiny island with a missionary zeal that has saved civilization with its dominion oriented zeal to carry out the great commission.

From Columba to the Covenanters you will be amazed at the depth of Christian history in that little country on the edge of the ocean.

To enter simply go the the product page for the set by clicking on one of the images above and come back and tell me which of the messages you would like to hear most. Extra entries for anyone who blogs about the drawing and comes back to tell me in the comments.  One more extra entry to the first person who can define Alba Gu Bra.

Finally read up on R,M, Ballyantyne at my friend Joshua Titus’ blog Ballantyne the Brave, you’ll want to be familiar with it when we do our Ballantyne Giveaway in a few weeks 🙂

Comments

  1. I would love to win this!

  2. IF it isn’t too late to enter, I’d like to! This one sounded like it would be most interesting to my boys: “Stirling and Bannockburn: Wallace and Bruce’s Fight for Independence.”

  3. I posted about this on my blog.

  4. I would love to hear Stirling and Bannockburn. This looks like a great set of CDs! I don’t have a blog, but thanks so much for offering a chance to win this.

  5. I posted on my homeschool/family blog.

  6. I would like to hear The Legacy of the Covenanters: The Market Cross and Martyrs’ Memorial at Greyfriars.

  7. Just one?!! I’m very curious about The Isle of Iona, but I would dearly love to hear them all. We have Scottish roots, too, & we’re very active with Clan Gunn here in Texas.

  8. I’d love to win the set, of course, and hear the On Location CD. Thank you for the chance to win.

  9. I did blog about the giveaway and I thought I left a comment to say so, but I don’t see it now.

  10. Okay, I blogged about it.

    Thanks, Kim

  11. My pick is “The Isle of Iona.” I have all the CDs of the band “Iona” and dream of going there. For more about that little bone to pick with Doug Phillips, I will be blogging abt the giveaway. But I think I’m supposed to comment again when I do. 🙂

  12. Here’s my pick:
    Scotland’s Reformation Legacy: Forerunner to America’s Freedom

    This looks like such a great set of messages!

  13. I got to visit Scotland once… it was a beautiful country. If we won we’d like most to listen to…

    Stirling and Bannockburn: Wallace and Bruce’s Fight for Independence

    [My e-mail is on the fritz… hopefully it is fixed by the end of the week. But if you need, just contact me via a comment on my blog…]

  14. Scotland Forever! How can I choose just ONE topic? I suppose if I had to choose just one, I’d say the stalwart reformer. The part about the druids and the legacy and Samuel Rutherford all sound interesting as well!
    I also blogged about your giveaway here http://fivesaparty.blogspot.com/2008/09/free-giveaway.html
    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  15. I would love to listen to the Isle of Iona. Thank you for having this!

  16. What a wonderful trip to be able to watch and be a part of it!
    “At Blantyre” , the section on David Livingstone’s great missionary adventures would really interest me. Please enter me in your delightful drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

  17. Imagine our surprise as we studied our own genealogy to find out that our family originated from Scotland (and were Highland Covenanters) and not from France as we had always been told. We would absolutely LOVE to hear these teachings on Bravehearts and Covenanters! And we think Alba Gu Bra means Scotland Forever.
    Thank you and God bless you!

  18. Well, I definetly wasn’t an early riser this morning. If I’d stayed up a few more hours I’d be the first one to answer your questions, so I won’t bother now, LOL, I blogged about your giveaway on my blog. Thanks for taking your time to blog and host giveaways. I’d really love to be the fly on your wall. When do you have time to blog and upkeep such a gorgeous site and keep your great family! Keep it up, lady, Thanks again and I think I’ll go with HIstory revived, though any title would be just great! INatalie So, doest that give me 2 entries?

  19. Reading through the list I realize I much I need to listen to all of them, but I would especially like to listen to the John Knox, the Stalwart Reformer.

    Thanks!

  20. At Blantyre, but all of them look great!

  21. At Blantyre: David Livingstone’s Great Missionary Adventures

    I would love to learn more about the history of Scotland!

  22. It’s hard to choose between Knox and Rutherford but I’m looking forward to listening to this one:
    St. Andrew’s Graveyard: The Life and Impact of Samuel Rutherford. Please enter me a second time. I posted about this on my blog. Thank you!

    Angela

  23. Hi, I think I would like to hear Stirling and Bannockburn: Wallace and Bruce’s Fight for Independence the most, although it all looks so interesting. If I don’t win, I will have to start saving up to buy it.

  24. We’ve been reading about the Scottish Covenanters this summer so this would be a big hit in our family. What a great giveaway. Thanks!

    Angela

  25. Can you enter me a second time? I posted about it on my blog. Thanks!

  26. WOW! I have been wanting this, just don’t have the money right now. Thank you soooo much for hosting this giveaway. I would like to hear:

    The Stalwart Reformer

  27. Alba Gu Bra: Scotland Forever!

  28. I’d love to hear “Stirling and Bannockburn.” I’d also like the kids to hear “At Blantyre” as we have read several biographies of David Livingstone.

  29. Scotland’s Reformation Legacy: Forerunner to America’s Freedom

    What another wonderful way to learn about US History and realize it didn’t start here. God’s providence for this country began long ago.

    Oh, and Alba Gu Bra means Scotland forever. 🙂

  30. Of course it is so hard to pick, but we just LOVE The music of Charlie Zahm and so we will pick “On Location in Scotland”!!

    Thanks so much for this wonderful give-away!!!!

  31. I would love to hear the CD At Blantyre. I really hope I win this, my husband was just saying the other day that he wants this set and I would LOVE to be able to give it to him. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Blessings,
    Kimberly – mom to 9, 11 and younger

  32. This sounds like a wonderful resource! I would love to hear “Stirling and Bannockburn,” just because it is one of our favorites. My husband is of Scottish descent, and loves learning more of the history. “Alba Gu Bra” means “Scotland Forever!” 🙂

    Blessings,
    Michele

  33. I would love to listen to them all, but since you said pick the ONE i’d like to listen to the most, it will have to be, The Legacy of the Covenanters: The Market Cross and Martyrs’ Memorial at Greyfriars. I have a blog but little time these days to do more then read a few of my favorites (yours included…does buttering you up count for anything???) so I am not certain I will be able to blog about the contest … who knows maybe time will allow, but the kids and I start school (finally) today and helping my husband in our home based business time may not allow…ok i’ll quit talking now!
    God bless you!
    Thanks,
    Kelly

    P.S. oh yeah and with a little bit of research on the internet and confirmation here in the comments I believe that Alba Gu Bra means Scotland forever!

  34. Hamilton and Wishart: Martyrs who Fanned Freedom’s Flames would be our choice. Thanks for the generous and edifying give-a-ways!

  35. without a doubt- At Blantyre. we so enjoy hearing about david livingstone!

  36. It would have to be “Isle of Iona”. I went to school with a girl named after the island, unfortunately her last name was also something you could “own”! I am from England and my knowledge of Christian history and our fair isle is shocking!

  37. I made two trips to Scotland when I was studying abroad at Oxford University and I quickly fell in LOVE with that country. I long to return. I looked over the list of messages and I really want to hear the one on the “The Isle of Iona.” I just recently read a book to my son on Columba and we both loved it. It sure would be great to learn more. 🙂

  38. Scotland Forever!!!

    Okay–if there was one giveaway I had to pick (past and future), this has to be it! We are descendants of Robert the Bruce, so we love Scottish history!
    “Stirling and Bannockburn” and “The Legacy of the Covenanters” are going neck-and-neck. But we have heard the story of Bruce and Wallace many times, and the Covenanters really need some study. So I’ll go with

    “THE LEGACY OF THE COVENANTERS”

    If I had a blog, I’d blog about it, but I don’t! But it’s the thought that counts, right? So do I still get the extra entries???

  39. Tracy in NC says:

    I can’t wait to hear this story. I think my favorite would be At Blantyre. And I think the quote means “Scotland Forever”.

Don't just think it: say it!
