Free eBook: Revolutionary Work

For a limited time, 10ofThose is offering William Taylor’s Revolutionary Work for free (use discount code “WORK” at checkout); you can access it here.

“We spend more time working than doing almost anything else, yet work is often difficult, unsatisfying and frustrating. Sometimes our efforts feel never–ending, and the idea that we should be working for the Lord is often squeezed out.

This book, based on a series of sermons by William Taylor, will help you to see that being a Christian can make a difference to how we experience work. William argues that ‘the Bible’s teaching on work is not only liberating but also exhilarating and refreshingly realistic’.

Whatever type of work you’re involved in, you’ll find this book full of wisdom on how to be a wise and godly worker.”

Free eBook: A Call to Spiritual Reformation

IVP is offering D.A. Carson’s A Call to Spiritual Reformation for free; you can access it here:

” ‘God doesn’t demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules: he only wants his people to know him more intimately,’ says D. A. Carson. ‘If we are to make any headway in reforming our personal and corporate praying, then we shall have to begin by listening afresh to Scripture and seeking God’s help in understanding how to apply Scripture to our lives, our homes and our churches.’

In this widely appreciated exposition, Carson works through several of the apostle Paul’s prayers in such a way that we hear God speak to us today, and find strength and direction to improve our praying, both for God’s glory and for our good.”

Free Audiobook: The Pilgrim’s Progress

For the month of April, you can download John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress for free; you can access it here.

“John Bunyan was a simple maker and mender of pots and kettles who received very little education. In spite of that, he penned the most successful allegory ever written. He lost his first wife and was imprisoned for twelve years for his compelling—but unlicensed—preaching. Nevertheless, his preaching about the gravity of sin, salvation by grace, the cost of discipleship, perseverance, and the glory of eternal life lives on in the signs and symbols of The Pilgrim’s Progress. Embark on a perilous journey with Christian, the lead character, from the City of Destruction to the luminous safe haven of the Celestial City. The journey will encourage you to ‘set your hope fully on the grace to be given you’ amidst the obstacles of life.”

Free eBook: John 13-21 For You

For the month of March, The Good Book Company is offering Josh Moody’s John 13-21 For You for free download; you can access it here.

“Josh Moody takes readers to the upper room with the disciples, to the cross with the Lord Jesus, and on to the empty tomb and the shores of Lake Galilee, showing at each point how gazing at the surprising glory of the God of the cross transforms his followers.

This Expository Guide takes you verse by verse through the text in an accessible and applied way. It is less academic than a traditional commentary and can be read cover-to-cover, used in personal devotions, used to lead small group studies, or used for sermon preparation.”

Free eBook: A Time for Confidence

For a limited time, Ligonier Ministries is offering a free eBook download of A Time for Confidence by Stephen Nichols; you can access it here.

“As members of a society that is quickly abandoning its Christian past, followers of Christ often feel disoriented or even frightened. When human leaders and political advocates fail us, doubts arise and the road to compromise beckons.

In this book, Dr. Stephen J. Nichols points to the almighty God as the source and ground of our confidence. Though the whole world may shake around us, His kingdom is unshakable. This is a time for confidence.”

Free eBook: Tempted and Tried

For the month of March, Faithlife is offering Russell Moore’s Tempted and Tried for free; you can access it here.

“Although temptation is a common and well-acknowledged part of the human experience, few realize the truth behind temptation and fewer still know how to defeat it. Tempted and Tried will not reassure Christians by claiming that temptation is less powerful or less prevalent than it is; instead, it will prepare believers for battle by telling the truth about the cosmic war that is raging. Moore shows that the temptation of every Christian is part of a broader conspiracy against God, a conspiracy that confronts everyone who shares the flesh of Jesus through human birth and especially confronts those who share the Spirit of Christ through the new birth of redemption.

Moore walks readers through the Devil’s ancient strategies for temptation revealed in Jesus’ wilderness testing. Moore considers how those strategies might appear in a contemporary context and points readers to a way of escape. Tempted and Tried will remind Christians that temptation must be understood in terms of warfare, encouraging them with the truth that victory has already been secured through the triumph of Christ.”

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.”
