After my interview with Diana Webb, the author of "Forgotten Women of God" she was so good to offer to give away a copy of her book to one of my lucky readers! If you missed my interview with her make sure you go back and read it. She has beautiful insights into women in the scriptures.

There are three ways to enter the give away.

2) "Like" Diana Webb's facebook page.

and

3) Link to my interview with Diana on either your blog, facebook or twitter.

Please let me know which ones you do.

Excited yet?


Here is is the quiz. There are two rules.

1) You may NOT use google or any other outside source to find answers and 2) please be honest.


Good Luck. I will post the answers in the first comment.

4. Who hammered a tent peg into the temple of the sleeping Canaanite general Sisera after giving him warm goat’s milk?
