BLOG Truths You Can Trust

SBTS is offering a free download of their faculty’s newest book Truths You Can Trust; you can access it here.

“As secular culture becomes increasingly antagonistic to Christian faith and some theological institutions are lowering their convictional standards, the church needs a foundation of truth. In this book from SBTS Press, faculty members of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary offer 13 truths you can trust in life and ministry. Scholars like Thomas R. Schreiner, Stephen J. Wellum, and Donald S. Whitney write about theological disciplines ranging from systematic theology to counseling, and show how truth still matters.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”
