Free eBook: Unstuck

Blog Unstuck

For this month, The Good Book Company is offering a free download of Tim Lane’s Unstuck; you can access it here.

“Is there an area in your life that you want to change, but you don’t know how?

Is there a behavior that you’ve tried to stop, but you just can’t seem to do it?

Is there a negative thought pattern that you have attempted to move on from, but nothing you try ever works?

Is there a relationship that you want to repair, but despite all your best intentions, nothing seems to make things better?

In other words, do you want to change, but feel stuck?

Tim Lane takes you on a nine-step journey towards lasting change. This practical and biblical guidance recognizes that the path to lasting change can only be found by growing in grace as we look to Christ and are empowered by the Holy Spirit. So these steps are much more than self-help strategies: they are truths that are rooted in Scripture.

Whatever your struggle, this warm and encouraging book will empower you to break free from unwanted habits and behaviors that don’t seem to go away.

Use this book on your own, with a friend, or in a one-to-one mentoring relationship. Each step ends with a “work it through” exercise to really help you put what you’re reading into practice, so that you can make a change in your life that lasts.

Whatever your struggle, this warm and encouraging book will help you to get unstuck as you look to Christ in the day-to-day pressures of life.”

Free Audiobook: Competing Spectacles

BLOG Competing Spectacles

For the month of January, you can download Tony Reinke’s Competing Spectacles for free; you can access it here.

“We live in a world full of shiny distractions, faced with an onslaught of viral media constantly competing for our attention and demanding our affections. These ever-present visual ‘spectacles’ can quickly erode our hearts, making it more difficult than ever to walk through life actively treasuring that which is most important and yet invisible: Jesus Christ. In a journalistic style, Tony Reinke shows us just how distracting these spectacles in our lives have become and calls us to ask critical questions about what we’re focusing on. The book offers us practical steps to redirect our gaze away from the addictive eye candy of the world and onto the Ultimate Spectacle-leading to the joy and rest our souls crave.”

新書介紹: 非死不可的門徒

BLOG Discipleship

“刺激你的信仰腦細胞,顛覆你的門徒DNA ◎「每一次我禱告,我搖動祢的手……」這首詩歌為何會變「禁歌」? ◎上帝是「不聽禱告的上帝」?這是危言聳聽吧? ◎「今天的禱告會帶得很好耶!」請問怎樣是很好的禱告會? ◎「將最好的獻給主」,上帝還不一定簽收咧! ◎人生以「使命必達」為目的?小心落入現代文明病的陷阱喔! ◎不想用「成功神學」騙人,但「審判」又嚇跑一堆人,說實話難道錯了嗎? ◎開口閉口「神會帶領」,是尊重神的主權,還是推卸自己的責任啊? ◎「宗教都是勸人為善的。」古往今來這句話澆息多少傳福音的熱情?且看劉曉亭如何讓它照妖鏡!

禱告、敬拜、傳福音,這些基本的門徒操練固然重要,但若未經檢視、慎思明辨,很容易就流於形式或自我中心,產生以上種種怪現象。結果,跟隨耶穌的門徒一不小心就變「山寨」,麥子變稗子,「非死不可」變成「必死無疑」。

劉曉亭牧師,累積二十年「劉三講古」的經驗,擅長說故事,喜歡領人認識耶穌。進入網路時代,與時俱進,在facebook發表文章,專挑信仰中最尖銳嗆辣的問題,進行每天一篇信仰答客問。本書收錄40篇精彩文章,幫助讀者重新聚焦於耶穌,校正你我的門徒方位。學作門徒不再是信仰的大悶鍋,而是活出健康整全的生命!”

Free eBook: Awe

Awe.COV.jacket2.indd

Crossway is offering a free download of Paul Tripp’s Awe in exchange for a survey; you can access it here.

Humans are hardwired for awe.

Our hearts are always captured by something—that’s how God made us. But sin threatens to distract us from the glory of our Creator. All too often, we stand in awe of everything but God.

Uncovering the lies we believe about all the earthly things that promise us peace, life, and contentment, Paul Tripp redirects our gaze to God’s awe-inducing glory—showing how such a vision has the potential to impact our every thought, word, and deed.”

新書介紹: 我信故我思

BLOG 我信故我思

“人的信仰決定人的生活,包括價值觀、生活取向、情緒健康等。一個沒有信仰的人,好像沒有舵的船,漂流無定。 本書便是對基督教信仰在生活和人性中的思考,是作者的心靈之聲:「我是在六歲隨家人信主,儘管未能脫離人性的掙扎,但一直自以為在追求敬虔,並且正直誠實。面對我人性的幽暗,我每天都在懺悔,但我的懺悔明顯是在接受和對審判的恐懼使然,而缺少人性的反思。2005年的仲夏,我經歷了一件讓我從惶恐無措,到憤怒,再到反思的事件。在其中我看到人性的敗壞和罪性的權勢?因此,我開始了信仰的反思,因為信,所以我思考!”

Free eBook: The Gift

BLOG The Gift

For the month of November, The Good Book Company is offering a free download of Glen Scrivener’s The Gift; you can access it here.

“Nothing beats the feeling of giving, or receiving, the perfect gift.

The most meaningful gifts we receive make us feel known, loved and valued. And when we give a gift like that, it’s like we’re putting ourselves in our present. And at Christmas, that’s exactly what God did.

This light-hearted and lively book explores how our gift-giving traditions show us a glimpse of a giving God. Evangelist Glen Scrivener helps readers to celebrate the gift of life in a world brimming with beauty, before taking us to John 3:16 to unwrap the Christmas gift that can give us what we’ve always wanted, and what we really need.”
