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.”

Free eBook: Life in the Wild

BLOG Life in the Wild

For the month of September, The Good Book Company is offering a free download of Life in the Wild by Dan DeWitt; you can access it here.

“We see Jesus, we believe in Jesus and we wait for Jesus, yet still we suffer. This book offers real and rugged answers in life’s dark places. Discover how to live with hope in a fallen, messed- up, “wild” world, and be encouraged.

Walking through Genesis 3, Dan DeWitt shows us how we can look at this world realistically but without despairing, as we wait for God to keep his promise to bring us out of the wild and into his new creation. It’s the contrast between Eden, where everything reflects God’s perfection, and exile, where everything is spoiled by sin. The book helps us survive living in exile – Life in the Wild – until “the glorious day when God will welcome us home, out of the wild”.

This book holds dark and light in balance. It shows how we are living with the effects of the fall (we are messed-up people living in a messed-up place) – but God’s promise, made in Eden, serves as a beacon of light to guide our steps in this fallen world.”
