Many of us are familiar with the Ten Commandments but hardly ever consciously think about how to act on them. Jamie Snyder’s Thou Shall aims to provide readers with advice on how to actively practice these commands; download it here.
“THOU SHALL NOT. The Ten Commandments are vital pillars of Christianity, but building a life entirely on not doing leaves much of God’s purpose for your life undone. A fresh look at the Bible reveals significantly more “Thou Shall” callings from God than “Thou Shall Not” directives.
A vibrant Christian life is far more about active faith than passive avoidance of sin. The biblical God is defined by movement and action. Jesus’s life teaches engagement, sacrifice, and service. God calls us to go, act, advocate, and serve. THOU SHALL.”

David C. Cook is offering a free eBook download of Be Hopeful (1 Peter) of its BE Series Commentary by Warren Wiersbe; download it here.
“We can expect to suffer for our faith, but we can also be hopeful, writes Warren Wiersbe. God’s grace is ours for the asking. We can prepare for the best of God’s blessing rather than fear the worst of man’s hatred.”

For the month of April, Christian Audio is offering a free download of Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand; download it here.
“After years of imprisonment and solitary confinement, enduring inhumane torture, Richard Wurmbrand emerges with a powerful testimony of courageous faith. Even today, believers are suffering and dying for Christ, yet their faith will not falter under the most unthinkable persecutions.

From now until April 9th, Christian Audio is offering David Platt’s Radical in audiobook format for free; download it here.
“In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple–then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a “successful” suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus.
Finally, he urges you to join in The Radical Experiment – a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring.”
