Free Audiobook: Liturgy of the Ordinary

BLOG Liturgy

For the month of June, Christian Audio is offering a free audiobook download of Tish Harrison Warren’s Liturgy of the Ordinary; you can access it here.

“In the overlooked moments and routines of our day, we can become aware of God’s presence in surprising ways. How do we embrace the sacred in the ordinary and the ordinary in the sacred? Framed around one ordinary day, this book explores daily life through the lens of liturgy, small practices, and habits that form us. Each chapter looks at something―making the bed, brushing her teeth, losing her keys―that the author does every day. Drawing from the diversity of her life as a campus minister, Anglican priest, friend, wife, and mother, Tish Harrison Warren opens up a practical theology of the everyday. Each activity is related to a spiritual practice as well as an aspect of our Sunday worship. Come and discover the holiness of your every day.”

Free eBook: Escaping Escapism

BLOG Escaping Escapism

For this month, The Good Book Company is offering Dave Griffith-Jones’s Escaping Escapism for free; you can access it here.

“Almost anything that is worth doing is a struggle. Almost anything that benefits other people is tough to do. Almost anything that makes a difference in this world is hard to see through to the end. Which is why, we’ll often do almost anything to escape doing it!

Yet we want to love people well, even when they’re difficult… tackle challenges that we find difficult… and keep moving forwards through times that prove difficult. Deep down we want to get on with doing hard things, fix what needs fixing and change what needs changing.

This book shows us how a bigger, better picture of Jesus will transform us. Our panic and tendency to avoid difficult things can be replaced with joyful, get-things-done confidence and proactivity when we depend on God’s power.

If you avoid difficult things but want to change, this book is for you”

Free Audiobook: Grace is Greater

BLOG Grace is Greaer

For the month of May, Christian Audio is offering a free download of Kyle Idleman’s Grace is Greater; you can access it here.

“The writer of the letter to the Hebrews said, “See to it that no one misses the grace of God.” Over the centuries much ink has been spilled on the subject of grace. Yet perhaps nothing is as hard to explain as God’s grace. It doesn’t make sense. It’s not fair. It can’t possibly cover over what I’ve done. The best way–perhaps the only real way–to understand it is to experience it. But too often in our churches we’re not getting grace across and grace is not experienced.

Bestselling author and pastor Kyle Idleman wants everyone to experience the grace of God. Through the powerful medium of story, Grace Is Greater leads readers past their hang-ups toward an understanding of grace that is bigger than our mistakes, our failures, our desire for revenge, and our seemingly impossible situations. No sin is so great, no bitterness so deep that God’s grace cannot transform the heart and rewrite the story.

Perfect for individuals and also for small groups and church-wide studies, Grace Is Greater will help readers truly grasp God’s grace, even if the Christians around them have failed to live it.”

Free Audiobook: The Pilgrim’s Progress

BLOG Pilgrim's Progress

For the month of February, Christian Audio is offering a free eBook download of John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress; 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.
