Free E-Book Alert – God Knows My Name

God Knows My NameIn this powerful and deeply vulnerable book, Beth Redman writes to pass along a message that changed her life—that the God who made us also understands us intimately. He hears our cries and reaches out in love to help us and fight for us. He’s always at work shaping our character. And no matter what others do, He will never, ever leave or forget us. Drawing on Scripture and her own experience, Redman invites us to explore the revolutionary implications of being loved by a God who knows our name. And she invites us to call on His name as well—to respond to His heart and love Him as He has loved us from the beginning.

Free E-Book – The Last Disciple

First-century Rome is a perilous city as Nero stalks the political circles and huddled groups of believers. To be safe, Christians must remain invisible.

Gallus Sergius Vitas is the only man within Nero’s trusted circle willing to do what it takes to keep the empire together. He struggles to lessen Nero’s monstrosities against the people of Rome—especially the Christians. But as three Greek letters are scrawled as graffiti throughout the city, Nero’s anger grows.

As the early church begins to experience the turbulence Christ prophesied as the beginning of the last days, an enemy seeks to find John’s letter, Revelation, and destroy it. Meanwhile the early Christians must decipher it and cling to the hope it provides as they face the greatest of all persecutions.

Free E-Book Alert – Horae Homileticae, Volume 17: Galatians to Ephesians

The twelve chapters that comprise Galatians and Ephesians have been studied and commented on for centuries. Charles Simeon’s work has stood the test of time because of the author’s ability to combine quality biblical scholarship with applicable spiritual insight.

These expository outlines (or “skeletons”) are not a verse-by-verse explanation of the English Bible. Rather, they are a chapter-by-chapter study with explanations of the most important and instructive verses in each chapter. Simeon’s aim with this commentary is “Instruction relative to the Composition of Sermons.” To this end, his exposition of the Scriptures is designed to maintain a focus on the more general aspects of a passage over and above possible treatments of particulars. His test for a sermon, as he teaches in Horae Homileticae, is threefold: does it humble the sinner, exalt the Saviour and promote holiness?

Opposing all human systems of divinity, Simeon’s commentary is also marked by an avoidance of any possible systemization of God’s Word and entanglement with theological controversies. A self-described “moderate Calvinist” or, more plainly, a “Biblical Christian,” Simeon believed that the Bible should speak for itself. “Be Bible Christians, not systems Christians” was his maxim; “My endeavor is to bring out of Scripture what is there, and not to thrust in what I think might be there. I have a great jealousy on this head; never to speak more or less than I believe to be the mind of the Spirit in the passage I am expounding.” With Horae Homileticae this conviction is soundly applied.

Free E-Book – Grace Walk

Now with a fresh cover! The over 250,000-selling Grace Walk has helped thousands of believers leave behind the “manic-depressive” Christian walk: either running around trying to perform to be acceptable to God–or thinking they’ve failed Him again and wondering if they’ll ever measure up.

Living the grace walk gets Christians off this religious roller coaster. Using his own journey from legalism into grace, Steve McVey illustrates the foundational, biblical truths of who believers are in Jesus Christ and how they can let Him live His life through them each day.

As they experience their identity in Jesus Christ, Christians will come to know “Amazing Grace” as not just a song but as their true way of life.

Free E-Book Alert – Be Hopeful (1 Peter): How to Make the Best of Times Out of Your Worst of Times by Warren W. Wiersbe

Once again the fine folks over at David C. Cook publishing are giving us a wonderful free gift.  If you’ve read any part of Warren Wiersbe’s “Be” commentaries, you know what a blessing they and how useful they are as devotion/Bible study tools.  You will want to download this free e-book asap!

In Scripture, hope means the promise of salvation for those who have accepted God and His Son’s death and resurrection.

Christians who possess this hope and live as though then possess it will learn godly submission, holy living, and harmony with other believers. These qualities will prepare them for what Peter pains in his epistle as inevitable—suffering and persecution. Though Peter is writing to warn a people who would soon be under the tyranny of a heathen Roman emperor, some level of suffering will always be part of the believers’ journey. A time is soon coming when living the “comfortable” Christian life will be far more costly than the life willing to give up all.

Free E-Book Alert – The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther by Steven Lawson

From the awesome folks at Ligonier Ministries:

On this day (April 18) in 1521 Martin Luther famously declared:

“Unless I am convinced by Scripture or by clear reasoning that I am in error – for popes and councils have often erred and contradicted themselves – I cannot recant, for I am subject to the Scriptures I have quoted; my conscience is captive to the Word of God. It is unsafe and dangerous to do anything against ones conscience. Here I stand. I cannot do otherwise. So help me God. Amen.”

To mark this significant day in Reformation history, until 11:59 p.m. EST tonight we are offering the eBook edition of Dr. Steven Lawson’s newly released book, The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther, for free.

There are two eBook formats available—the ePub version for devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, or Nook, and the MOBI version for Kindle devices:
