For the month of November, Christian Audio is offering Paul Tripp’s Sex and Money audiobook for free; you can download it here.
“Pleasure. We live in a world obsessed with finding it, passionate about enjoying it, and desperate about maintaining it. Chief among such objects of affection are sex and money—two pleasures unequaled in their power to captivate our attention and demand our worship. In what is sure to become an instant classic, popular author Paul David Tripp pulls back the curtain on the lies of our flesh and the ways we distort God’s good gifts, examining the insanity of our culture and exposing our tendency to fall prey to the hollow promises of this world. In exploring how God’s grace frees us from futile pursuits, Tripp directs readers to the wisdom of God in Scripture and the liberating power of the gospel, offering practical guidance on finding true joy and enduring satisfaction.”

Desiring God Ministries has a new eBook available for free download by Jon Bloom titled Don’t Follow Your Heart.
“‘Follow your heart’ is a creed embraced by billions of people. It’s a statement of faith in one of the great pop-cultural myths of our day — a gospel proclaimed in many of our stories, movies, and songs. It can sound so simple, beautiful, and liberating. It’s tempting to believe.
Until you consider that your heart has sociopathic tendencies. Our hearts were never designed to be followed, but to be led. Our hearts were never meant to be gods in whom we believe, but to believe in God.
This book contains 31 meditations for recalibrating your heart. It is a collection of helps for common heart problems. Because your biggest problems in life are heart problems.
Jon Bloom will help you follow Jesus by resisting your heart’s errant predilections and directing it to do all God’s will.”

Randy Alcorn’s God’s Promise of Happiness is available for free download.

We know that we will experience unimaginable joy and happiness in Heaven, but that doesn’t mean we can’t also experience joy and happiness here on earth.
In God’s Promise of Happiness, bestselling author and noted theologian Randy Alcorn shares select passages and scripture from his latest hardcover release, Happiness, that provide insight, wisdom, and proof positive that God not only wants us to be happy, he commands it!”

“In one of the unsurpassed religious masterpieces produced by an American writer, Jonathan Edwards distinguishes between true and false religion by defining a believer’s correct affections and explaining their importance. He further identifies the distinction between genuine-seeming and legitimate affections.
A Christian preacher and one of the greatest theologians of the English-speaking world, Jonathan Edwards played a critical role in the First Great Awakening and oversaw some of the first revivals in 1733 at his church in Northampton, Massachusetts. His famous sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” remains a classic of early American literature, and Religious Affections constitutes essential reading for divinity students and students of American religious history.”

There is another volume of the BE Series Commentary, Be Committed, available for free download; you can find it here.
“For both Ruth and Esther, God used stressful circumstances to bring about His eternal purposes. Ruth’s committment to the God of Naomi affected every generation to come, as she became an ancestor of King David and more importantly, Jesus Christ. Esther’s obedience led to the preservation of her people at a moment in history when all seemed lost.
The stories of Ruth and Esther will make you contemplate: Would I trust God enough to do what they did? Go chapter by chapter through the books of Ruth and Esther to see how the lives of these two remarkable women epitomize the type of faith that glorifies God.”
