Free eBook: The Scars That Have Shaped Me

BLOG The Scars That Have Shaped Me

For this weekend only, you can download Vaneetha Rendall Risner’s The Scars That Have Shaped Me for free here.

“Twenty-one surgeries by age thirteen. Years in the hospital. Verbal and physical bullying from schoolmates. Multiple miscarriages as a young wife. The death of a child. A debilitating progressive disease. Riveting pain. Abandonment. Unwanted divorce.

Vaneetha Rendall Risner begged God for grace that would deliver her. But God offered something better: his sustaining grace.

In The Scars That Have Shaped Me, Vaneetha does more than share her stories of pain; she invites other sufferers to taste with her the goodness of a sovereign God who will carry us in our darkest of days.”

HOW DOES THE CHURCH REACH THE UNCHURCHED?

Helping us to see the way forward, this book offers practical ideas and personal stories for engaging with Western society. Find out how to effectively reach people in the context of everyday life and take hold of the opportunity to develop missional communities focused on Jesus.”

The Religious Affections Quite possibly one of the most important books ever written by America’s greatest theologian.

Free Audiobook: Reading the Bible Supernaturally

BLOG Reading the Bible Supernaturally

For the month of July, Christian Audio is offering a free download of John Piper’s Reading the Bible Supernaturally; you can access it here.

“The Bible reveals glorious things. And yet we often miss its power because we read it the same way we read any other book. In Reading the Bible Supernaturally, best-selling author John Piper teaches us how to read the Bible in light of its divine author. In doing so, he highlights the Bible’s unique ability to reveal God to humanity in a way that informs our minds, transforms our hearts, and ignites our love. Ultimately, Piper shows us that in the seemingly ordinary act of reading the Bible, something supernatural happens: we encounter the living God. ”

Free eBook: Not Yet Married

BLOG Not Yet Married

Desiring God is offering Marshall Segal’s Not Yet Married for free download this weekend; you can get it here.

Learn to live and date for more than marriage.

Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God’s purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you “the one,” but about inspiring you to live and date for more now.

If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of perfection, but a mutually flawed pursuit of him. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would have written for yourself, but that’s because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. Trust him, and he will help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.”

Free eBook: The Masculine Mandate

BLOG The Masculine Mandate

Ligonier Ministries is offering a free download of Richard Phillip’s The Masculine Mandate; you can access it here.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A CHRISTIAN MAN?

In this book, Richard D. Phillips cuts through the cultural confusion, highlights God’s mandate for men, and encourages readers to join him on a journey of repentance and renewal. Phillips begins in the Garden of Eden, drawing foundational teaching for men from the earliest chapters of God’s Word. This is teaching that reaches into all of life. Christian men today need to examine their hearts and embrace their God-given mandate. Only then will they be able to recognize their high calling, and by God’s grace, serve faithfully in whatever context God has placed them.”
