Free eBook: Be Transformed

BLOG Be Transformed

For those interested in another volume of Warren Wiersbe’s BE Series Commentaries, the volume Be Transformed (John 13-21) is available for free download here.

“How to pray, how to serve, how to overcome, how to love: Jesus taught the disciples these timeless lessons through hands-on experience and powerful parables that resonated in the hearts of multitudes. Most evident in John 13-21, however, is Christ’s teaching on the transforming power of joy—how to have it, hold onto it, and never let it go.

The more time the disciples spent with Jesus, the deeper their friendships became. The deeper their friendships became, the more they resembled Jesus’ character. It was a preparation period for the new reign of the Holy Spirit, who would come to comfort and dwell within them. It was preparation for their callings—the Great Commission. The calling of God’s people hasn’t changed since then, but you will change as you apply the lessons of this commentary on the greatest teacher who ever lived—Jesus Christ—and hold onto the joy that never forsakes.”

New Book: Finally Free

BLOG Finally Free

“If you have struggled personally against the powerful draw of pornography, or if you have ever tried to help someone fighting this battle, you know how hard it is to break free. But real freedom isn’t found by trying harder to change. Nor is it found in a particular method or program. Only Jesus Christ has the power to free people from the enslaving power of pornography.

In Finally Free, Dr. Heath Lambert, a leader in the biblical counseling movement, lays out eight gospel-centered strategies for overcoming the deceitful lure of pornography. Each chapter clearly demonstrates how the gospel applies to this particular battle and how Jesus can move readers from a life of struggle to a life of purity.

If you or someone you care about is fighting this battle, there is good news: No matter how intense or long-standing the struggle, Jesus Christ can, will, and does set people free from the power of pornography.”

Free Audiobook: Delighting in God

BLOG Delighting in God

For the month of May, Christian Audio is offering A.W. Tozer’s Delighting in God for free. You can download it here.

“We were created in the image of God, and to understand who we are, we need to understand who God is. His very character and nature are reflected through us. Unless we fully grasp who we are, we’ll never become all God wants us to be.

Delighting in God is the message Tozer intended to be the follow-up to The Knowledge of the Holy. He demonstrates how the attributes of God–those things God has revealed about himself–are a way to understand the Christian life of worship and service. We are here to serve and adore him, but we can only fulfill that role by acknowledging who he is, which is the essence of the Christian life and the source of all our fulfillment, joy, and comfort.”

Free eBook: Be Reverent

BLOG Be Reverent

Be Reverent is a commentary on the book of Ezekiel and is available for free download here.

“The modern church has become a comfortable place, as congregations focus on creating warm and welcoming environments. But have casual attitudes replaced reverence for the Lord? The prophet Ezekiel was called to remind God’s people about His holy and glorious nature, and that message remains as relevant today as when it was first delivered. This study examines Ezekiel’s mission to describe the indescribable, a God beyond imagining, a King worthy of our reverence.

Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s best-selling “BE” commentary series, BE Reverent has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. A respected pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Wiersbe calls us to rediscover the awesomeness of the Lord. Filled with inspiring words and images, Ezekiel’s timeless message will draw you into a deeper level of holy reverence for our God.”

Free eBook: Billy Graham

BLOG Billy Graham

For those who want to know more about Billy Graham, Billy Graham: Candid Conversations with a Public Man is available for free download here.

Most people know Billy Graham the preacher. Many know Billy Graham the author. In this remarkable book, Graham reveals a personal side that few have seen before.

For thirty years, Billy Graham and David Frost fascinated television audiences with their conversations about God, the Bible, and Graham’s decades-long ministry. Frost asked the questions that thousands of viewers wanted to ask. Graham answered them with authenticity and grace. Along the way, Graham provided insight into life as an evangelist, a Christian father and grandfather, and a public figure in a changing culture. Most of all, Graham’s words show what it means to live out your beliefs—whether you speak to millions of people around the world or simply want to live faithfully at home and work. With a chronology of Graham’s life, a preface from Frost, and a foreword from his grandson, Tullian Tchividjian, this weaving of stories, interviews, and reflections will inspire you to respond to God’s call with no reserve.”

新書介紹: 明道研經叢書 – 啟示錄

12 Revelation4.ai

“啟示錄的語言具有生發創造和建立的能力,不是客觀、抽象、疏離、冷漠、概念式的約化言說。想像式語言藉著視覺語言的表述,使讀者從日常生活裡驚覺那理所當然的權勢,其實並沒有終極的能力。想像式語言為讀者揭示那久為忽略的啟迪和意義,它解除讀者先入為主的思念。只是對這種語言的特色和限制不知就裡者,不是曲解誤會(如以啟示錄為驚世預言),就是貶抑否定(十九世紀的解經者不少都認為啟示錄作者的寫作水平不高)。另一方面,讀者可以從固有的事物裡瞥見亮光,更清楚地認識世界的本相,甚至因為洞見而活出生命:聽見又遵守其中所記載的,都是有福的(—3,二十二7、9)。如此,啟示錄的文字特色就不是難以解釋的謎團,亦非難以洞悉的密碼了。”
