Free eBook: Exalting Jesus in 1,2,3 John

For the month of October, Logos is offering a free download of Daniel Akin’s Exalting Jesus in 1,2,3 John (Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary); you can access it here.

“Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series, projected to be 48 volumes, takes a Christ-centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible. Rather than a verse-by-verse approach, the authors have crafted chapters that explain and apply key passages in their assigned Bible books. Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition. Exalting Jesus in 1, 2 & 3 John is written by Daniel L. Akin.”

Free eBook: Growing in Gratitude

For the month of October, The Good Book Company is offering a free eBook download of Growing in Gratitude; you can access it here.

“How to grow as thankful women of God.

We are often encouraged to ‘count our blessings’. But truly biblical gratitude is much more than this.

Mary K. Mohler unpacks Scripture to help us grow in gracious gratitude—thanking God for who he is, as well as natural gratitude— thanking him for his blessings. She also helps women to identify and deal with some of the things that hinder them so that they can rediscover the joy of a thankful heart.

This thoroughly Bible-centered unpacking of the reasons for gratitude builds on Mary K. Mohler’s 25 years experience in mentoring seminary wives at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this book ideal for group use as well as for individuals.”

Free eBook: Colossians & Philemon For You

For the month of September, The Good Book Company is offering a free eBook download of Mark Meynell’s Colossians and Philemon For You; you can access it here.

“Peace. Provision. Forgiveness. These are basic human needs. Yet who can truly be relied upon to deliver them?

In his letter to the Colossians, Paul shows how these can never come to us through political, philosophical, mystical or religious systems. They only come through Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God.

Mark Meynell unpacks Colossians and Philemon, verse by verse in this expository guide which can be used as a daily devotional or for studying this letter in your church. It will excite ordinary Christians in their faith, equip teachers and preachers in their work, and help us all to root our confidence in the right place.”

Humility, by Andrew Murray, is a classic book on the trait of holiness. ‘Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord, and He will exalt you.’ (James 4:10) Murray explains this highest virtue and that dependence on God is the basis for true Christian blessing.

Free eBook: Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit

For the month of September, Faithlife is offering a free eBook download of Cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit by Christopher Wright; you can access it here.

“How should Christians live? On the one hand, some very legalistic Christians stress the importance of keeping all the rules—that you must do this and never do that if you want to prove you are really a Christian. On the other hand, there are those who reject the whole idea of rules or traditions in the church and see the point of the Christian faith as setting us free from the institutionalized religious burden. But Paul addresses these two competing views by showing us a far better way—a truly Christian way to live our lives. It is the way of the Spirit of God given to us through Christ: ‘Walk by the Spirit . . . led by the Spirit . . . live by the Spirit . . . keep in step with the Spirit.’ That is the heart and soul of Christian living. It is the center and secret of what it means to be a person who belongs to Christ. Pastor and scholar Christopher Wright invites us to live a life in step with the Spirit by cultivating the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These nine chapters, each addressing a different fruit, each conclude with questions for contemplation or discussion. Feed on the Word of God, grow in Christlikeness, and live a fruitful life.”

Free eBook: Is Forgiveness Really Free?

The Good Book Company is offering a free eBook download of Michael Jensen’s Is Forgiveness Really Free?; you can access it here.

“We’re saved by the free gift of God—but how free is that gift when our lives are demanded in return?

Many Christians are confused by the relationship between the grace of God, and the role of laws and commands in the Christian life. What does it mean to live a life of grace? How does grace help us grow? And are we “once saved always saved?” In this short, readable book, Michael Jensen explores the Bible’s teaching on these important questions and delivers some surprising conclusions.”

How can a sinful human stand before a holy God?

In Christ Has Set Us Free, nine seasoned Bible teachers walk through the entirety of Galatians, offering insights on how to interpret and apply its important message about justification by faith. This book will help all who teach or study the Bible better understand what Christ has done to set us free from the power of sin through his death and resurrection.”
