Crossway is offering a free eBook download of Why the Reformation Still Matters in exchange for a survey; you can access it here.
“Does the Reformation Still Matter?
In 1517, a German monk nailed a poster to the door of a church, disputing key doctrines taught by the Roman Catholic Church in that day. This moment set in motion a movement that changed the entire trajectory of church history. But do the Reformers still have something to teach us?
In this accessible primer, Michael Reeves and Tim Chester answer eleven key questions raised by the Reformers—questions that remain critically important for the church today.”

The Good Book Company is offering Helen Thorne’s Purity is Possible for free this month; you can check it out here.
“One in five Christian women use pornography. One in three visitors to a porn site is a woman. Many, many more women read explicit books like Fifty Shades of Gray. Even more than that write their own pornography—not on paper for publication, but in their heads for their own use.
Helen Thorne knows all this because she’s done it.
But no one talks about it. Our churches are silent on it. There are very few books about it. It is the unspoken struggle of thousands of Christian women—perhaps you, and probably someone you know.”

For the month of October, Christian Audio is offering a free download of Sinclair Ferguson’s The Whole Christ; you can access it here.
“Sinclair Ferguson leads readers to rediscover an eighteenth-century debate on law and gospel: the Marrow Controversy. After sketching the history of the debate, Ferguson moves on to discuss the theology itself, acting as a wise guide for walking the path between legalism (overemphasis on the law) on the one side and antinomianism (wholesale rejection of the law) on the other.”

The Good Book Company is offering Tim Chester’s Gospel-Centered Family for free; you can download it here.
“Numerous books set out to help Christian parents in the challenging mission of raising their children well—so what’s different about this one? Well, the answer’s in the title! It’s not about how the gospel fits into Christian family life, but how family life should fit into the gospel—God’s greatest purpose for this universe, achieved in Christ.
Many books aim to raise up competent, balanced parents and well-trained, well-rounded children. But Tim Chester and Ed Moll focus on families growing God-knowing, Christ-confessing, grace-receiving, servant-hearted, mission-minded believers—adults and children together.
Christian families should be about…
– not just making good citizens but also church planters, missionaries, reformers, servants and evangelists;
– not just learning about God but also showing him to others;
– not just controlling behavior but also changing the heart;
– not just parents and children, but being an integral part of the wider church family.
In twelve concise chapters, Gospel-Centered Family takes us through the major Bible principles for family life, challenging us to give up our ‘respectable’ middle-class idols, and to become the distinctively different people that God, through his gospel, calls us to be.”
