Free eBook: Passion

For the month of February, you can download Passion by Mike McKinley for free; you can access it here.

“Some people see Jesus’ death as a historical footnote, buried in the past. Christians understand it is much more than that, and know it has transformed their future.

But often we don’t realize how much Jesus’ last day should change our present, too.

Walking readers through Luke’s Gospel, US pastor and well-known author Mike McKinley looks at the events of the last day of Jesus’ earthly life. At each point, he pauses to marvel at the love Christ has for His people; and shows how Jesus’ people can learn from His passion, His care, and His integrity.

This unique book is perfect for both new and mature Christians. While great for reading at any time in the year, it’s particularly helpful to read during Lent or Holy Week.”

Free eBook: The Cross

For a limited time, you can download J.C. Ryle’s The Cross for free; you can access it here.

I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me, and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20

I want to tell you what perhaps the greatest Christian who ever lived (the Apostle Paul) thought of the cross of Christ. Believe me, the cross is of deepest importance. This is no mere question of controversy; this is not one of those points on which men may agree to differ and feel that differences will not shut them out of heaven. A man must be right on this subject, or he is lost forever. Heaven or hell, happiness or misery, life or death, blessing or cursing in the last day – all hinges on the answer to this question: ‘What do you think about the cross of Christ?

Let me show you:
1. What the apostle Paul did not glory in.
2. What Paul did glory in.
3. Why all Christians should think and feel about the cross like Paul.”

Free eBook: Be Courageous

For a limited time, you can download Warren Wiersbe’s BE series commentary, Be Courageous: Take Heart from God’s Example, for free here.

“Encounter the ultimate profile in courage. It takes courage to walk out our faith. Courage to stand for what we believe. To set our standards on Biblical truth, not cultural trends. To pursue a life defined by integrity and character. And we find no greater profile in courage than in the life of Christ. This study follows our Savior as he faced opposition, challenged critics, and courageously chose to make the ultimate sacrifice.  Part of Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s best-selling “BE” commentary series, BE Courageous has now been updated with study questions and a new introduction by Ken Baugh. A respected pastor and Bible teacher, Dr. Wiersbe explores the courageous life of Christ. You’ll be encouraged to trust God, and inspired to embrace fearless living.”

Free eBook: 1 Peter For You

For the month of January, The Good Book Company is offering a free eBook download of 1 Peter For You by Juan Sanchez; you can access it here.

“The book of 1 Peter could have been written for our times—a time of antagonism toward biblical ethics, and the marginalization of biblical Christians. Into that culture—our culture—Peter speaks of hope and offers joy as he points believers home to heaven.

Juan Sanchez brings his experience of ministry in the US and Latin America, and his pastoral wisdom and insight, to this wonderful epistle—an epistle that every Christian needs to treasure today.”

Free Audiobook: Christmas Playlist

Christian Audio is offering a free download of Alistair Begg’s Christmas Playlist; you can access it here.

“Christmas is a great time to give a non-Christian friend or church visitor a short book getting to the heart of what it’s truly all about. This is perfect for giving out at church events, or with a present. Music is everywhere at Christmas chart-toppers, carols, children’s tunes… Alistair Begg takes us to four songs that were sung by people at the very first Christmas (and his favorite carol). In this short, winsome book a teenage girl, a respected priest, a group of angels and an old man bring readers to the heart of Christmas, showing them the joy and peace that comes from meeting a baby who lay in the food trough and changed eternity.”
