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.”

Free eBook: Newton on the Christian Life

BLOG Newton on the Christian Life

Crossway is offering a free download of Newton on the Christian Life by Tony Reinke in exchange for a survey; you can access it here.

“John Newton is best known as the slave trader turned hymn writer who penned the most popular English hymn in history: “Amazing Grace.” However, many Christians are less familiar with the decades he spent in relative obscurity, laboring as a “spiritual doctor” while pastoring small parishes in England. In the latest addition to Crossway’s growing Theologians on the Christian Life series, Tony Reinke introduces modern readers to Newton’s pastoral wisdom by leading them through the many sermons, hymns, and—most importantly—letters that he wrote over the course of his life. Considered by many to be one of the greatest letter writers of all time, Newton has valuable insights to offer modern Christians, especially when it comes to fusing together sound doctrine, lived experience, and godly practice.”

Free eBook: Habits of Grace

BLOG Habits of Grace

For this weekend only, Desiring God is offering a free download of David Mathis’s Habits of Grace; you can access it here.

Hear his voice. Have his ear. Belong to his body.

Three seemingly unremarkable principles shape and strengthen the Christian life: listening to God’s voice, speaking to him in prayer, and joining together with his people as the church.

Though seemingly normal and routine, the everyday “habits of grace” we cultivate give us access to these God-designed channels through which his love and power flow — including the greatest joy of all: knowing and enjoying Jesus.”

Free Audiobook: Jonathan Edwards – America’s Genius

BLOG Jonathan Edwards

For the month of May, Christian Audio is offering a free audiobook download of Jonathan Edwards: America’s Genius; you can access it here.

“Jonathan Edwards was just an ordinary American boy but he was different too. The country he lived in wasn’t the America of today – but a new world full of adventure and opportunity. Battles and Tomahawks were just some of the thrilling adventures that his family lived through.

But Jonathan also loved the small things in life too. In an age of scientific discovery, Edwards saw God’s beauty displayed most perfectly through nature. His journals are filled with drawings of plants, animals, and spiders because he knew that each one of them reflected the creativity of its Creator.

His mind was full of questions and he grappled for the answers.
Intellectually there were few to beat him. However it wasn’t just his amazing intelligence that set him apart from other boys his age – he may have had a thirst for knowledge but he also had a strong desire for the things of God. His genius and abilities teamed up well with his faith and love for the Lord Jesus Christ.

One day the country that would become the United States of America would look back at this man of brilliance as a founding influence on their land.”

Free eBook: Gospel Wakefulness

BLOG Gospel Wakefulness

Crossway is offering a free download of Jared Wilson’s Gospel Wakefulness in exchange for a brief survey; you can access it here.

Do you ever feel like your desire for God is waning? Are you numb to the routine of church? What does it mean to be truly awakened to the wonder of the gospel?

Jared Wilson contends that we must be regularly engaged and engaging others with the good news of the sacrificing, dying, rising, exalted person of Jesus Christ. Wilson reminds us of the death-proof, fail-proof King of kings who is before all things and in all things and holding all things together, and of the Spirit’s power to quicken our hearts and captivate our imaginations. The message of Gospel Wakefulness will make numbness the exception (rather than the norm) and reawaken us to the multifaceted brilliance of the gospel.”
