‘The Truth of the Cross’ by R.C. Sproul – FREE for Kindle

We are just days away from celebrating one of the most fundamental Christian holidays, Easter. But what is Easter without the cross? Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf is a center of R.C. Sproul’s book ‘The Truth of the Cross’. The Kindle version of this book is now offered freely on Amazon.com. It is a limited time offer, so make sure you get yours today.

 
Dr. R.C. Sproul surveys the great work accomplished by Jesus Christ through His crucifixion the redemption of God s people. Dr. Sproul considers the atonement from numerous angles and shows conclusively that the cross was absolutely necessary if anyone was to be saved. Opening the Scriptures, Dr. Sproul shows that God Himself provided salvation by sending Jesus Christ to die on the cross, and the cross was always God s intended method by which to bring salvation. The Truth of the Cross is an uncompromising reminder that the atonement of Christ is an absolutely essential doctrine of the Christian faith, one that should be studied and understood by all believers.

 “The Truth of the Cross is the best book on the cross I have read. It is a ‘must’ for every church library and a book that I will give away many times to friends. This is so because it is sober (i.e., it contains historically informed reflections on salient biblical texts), sensible (i.e., it is well-argued), simple (i.e., it holds the reader’s attention through grabbing illustrations and even a seventh-grader can its substance), and spiritual (i.e., it comes from a heart set ablaze by the Spirit).” – Dr. Bruce K. Waltke, Professor RTS

“The cross stands at the very center of our Christian lives. Still, many Christians are confused about the heart of the gospel, for many deviant views are in the air. R.C. Sproul blows the fog away in this wonderfully clear, theologically profound, and pastorally rich work. Learn afresh or anew what God has accomplished in the cross, so that you will boast only in the cross of Jesus Christ.” – Dr. Thomas R. Schreiner, Professor SBTS

Dr. R.C. Sproul is the founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries, an international multimedia ministry based in Lake Mary, Florida, and can be heard teaching around the United States and overseas on his daily radio program Renewing Your Mind. He also serves as senior minister of preaching and teaching at Saint Andrew s Chapel in Sanford, Florida. During his distinguished academic career, Dr. Sproul has helped train men for the ministry as a professor at Reformed Theological Seminary and later at Knox Theological Seminary. He is the author of more than sixty books, including The Holiness of God, Chosen by God, What is Reformed Theology?, The Invisible Hand, Faith Alone, and A Taste of Heaven. He also served as general editor of the Reformation Study Bible.

Crazy Love

Written by Francis Chan and Danae Yankoski

The God of the universe is crazy about you! His love is the most powerful thing in the world and He wants to give it to you, so you can live for Him. If you have made a commitment to follow Christ, then read Crazy Love to be reminded and challenged in your walk. Sharing from his own life struggles and sacrifices, author Francis Chan issues a call for selfless, Christ-like living. Let the love you have received from God impact your life like never before. Foreword by Chris Tomlin.

Forgotten God

Written by Francis Chan and Danae Yankoski

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit–the Helper – so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today’s church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Breakthrough author Francis Chan rips away paper and bows to get at the true source of the church’s power–the Holy Spirit. Chan contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and we are reaping the disastrous results. Thorough scriptural support and compelling narrative form Chan’s invitation to stop and remember the One we’ve forgotten, the Spirit of the living God.

Erasing Hell

Written by Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle

How could a loving God send people to hell? Will people have a chance after they die to believe in Jesus and go to heaven? With a humble respect for God’s Word, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle address the deepest questions you have about eternal destiny. They’ve asked the same questions. Like you, sometimes they just don’t want to believe in hell. But, as they write, “We cannot afford to be wrong on this issue.” This is not a book about who is saying what. It’s a book about what God says. It’s not a book about impersonal theological issues. It’s a book about people God loves. It’s not a book about arguments, doctrine, or being right. It’s a book about the character of God.

This book may not be exactly about the miracles as secular people see them: jaw-dropping, supernatural acts of universal proportions. Yet it IS about miracles how Christians should see them – God’s divine intervention, His grace and loving touch.

“There is no better story than the one our God writes in our lives. This book is a compilation of real happenings in the lives of actual people who are recipients of God’s mercy and grace. I enjoy the author’s writing style, you will not be disappointed. I’m hoping she’ll write a second!” – an Amazon reviewer.

FREE e-Books for Kindle

It just might become a good tradition to share with our readers some of the deals we come across in the department of electronic books. So here is a round-up of some free Kindle deals as of March 2, 2012.

Please keep in mind that the price and availability of books changes from day to day, so before you buy any book that listed as free on this site, make sure it hasn’t changed in price.

Forgiveness Formula: Finding Lasting Freedom in Christ, by CJ Hitz and Shelley Hitz.

“Sometimes life doesn’t seem to make sense or “add up” in our math. We have life circumstances that make us question whether we can truly have a full life. Divorce. Death. Sickness. Financial losses. And life doesn’t seem fair.

Whatever your circumstances, we believe every reader can benefit from what we share in these pages, whether you’ve endured varying levels of pain or struggle in your own life or you know someone who has.”

Journey to the Well: A Novel by Diana Wallis Taylor.

One of the most well-known and loved stories of Jesus’s ministry is the encounter with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well. Now the creative mind of Diana Wallis Taylor imagines how the Samaritan woman got there in the first place. Marah is just a girl of thirteen when her life is set on a path that will eventually lead her to a life-changing encounter with the Messiah. But before that momentous meeting she must traverse through times of love lost and found, cruel and manipulative men, and gossiping women. This creative and accurate portrayal of life in the time of Jesus opens a window into a fascinating world. Taylor’s rich descriptions of the landscapes, lifestyles, and rituals mesh easily with the emotional and very personal story of one woman trying to make a life out of what fate seems to throw at her. This exciting and heartwrenching story will fascinate readers and lend new life to a familiar story.

Wholehearted: Three Life-Changing Commands of Jesus by Roger Wernette

By looking at three truly life-changing commands given to us by Jesus, Roger Wernette guides the reader to a new understanding of what Christianity is all about. He shows you how just eleven words — love God, obey God, & teach others to love and obey God — will unlock God’s power in your own life as never before. Thoroughly biblical, “Wholehearted” is both challenging and uplifting. With discussion questions for each chapter, the book is great for groups as well as for individuals.

The Fence My Father Built by Linda S. Clare is a poignant novel about finding where you belong. Muri Pond is taking her two children, Nova and Tru, home to her father’s home in the desert area of Oregon after the loss of her job and the end of her marriage. She grew up never knowing Joseph Pond, but after his death, she finds she has nowhere else to go, so going to his home makes sense. Until she finds out that his home is a trailer with a group of cobbled together additions and is occupied by her quirky aunt and uncle and their potbellied pigs. That’s only the beginning of Muri’s trouble, however. Joseph left a fight over water rights with the town’s best-loved citizen in which Muri quickly finds herself trapped in as well, plus Nova has no intention of living in the middle of nowhere. Clare puts Muri in the middle of an impossible situation and every turn of the page only seems to turn up the heat. Her writing is powerful and deeply human. I hope she writes more fiction soon!  –  review by Christina Lockstein from Christy’s Book Blog.

Holy Parenting: Making the Common Sacred by Benjamin Kerns

Having a child is truly amazing. However, if we are honest, there is a natural grieving process that happens as we realize our old life is now over. One of the most difficult aspects to get over is losing personal space and time.   All of the freedoms we have grown accustomed to have instantly gone away.

For Christian parents who have once had a thriving walk with God, having little children has made it next to impossible to stay connected the way we used to. But take heart, this season of life doesn’t have to be defined by dry spirituality.

Holy Parenting is a book that walks along with you as a parent; helping you come to terms with this new reality, expand their devotional diet, and provide helpful tools to develop your own faith, as well as the faith of your children.

My Kindle Fire by Jim Cheshire is

“This book is a great companion to the Fire. I have Kindle Fire for Dummies and it is a primer compared to this book. First of all the table of contents is detailed so it is very easy to find a specific point to go to if you are looking to jump into one area before systematically working through this guide.” – Amazon reviewer

“This book is intended for those who have never used a tablet or those who are looking to buy a tablet and they want to know what the Kindle Fire has to offer before deciding on their purchase. The book also contains a great number of pictures and illustrations that explain in detail each step of any process or what components each screen has. Lastly the book can also be used as a reference to learn or explore unknown functions in the Kindle Fire. It will probably not teach very much things to advanced or experienced users of the Kindle Fire as the information is very basic and most of the instructions are intuitive to any user of android phones or other tablets.” – Amazon reviewer

 

Hopefully, you find some of those books useful.

J.C. Ryle: Practical Religion

John Charles Ryle was born on the 10th of May 1816 at Macclesfield, England in the family of a wealthy banker. Being a fine athlete and a highly educated man, John had promising career opportunities both in educational and political spheres. However, while hearing Ephesians 2 read in church in 1838, he felt a spiritual awakening and choose a path of ordained ministry.

Ryle was an earnest gospel preacher and teacher, as well as a prolific writer. As noted by another bearded man of God, John Ryle “was a controversial leader taking a strong stand for the truth and against error. His writing, like his the rest of his ministry, was both robustly doctrinal and devotional. He labored to help people know the Truth, and live by it.”

John Ryle has left a rich legacy of written works that continue to bless the readers even now. Among the favorites are his Holiness and Practical Religion.

Jonathan Edwards and The Works

Jonathan Edwards was the most eminent American philosopher-theologian of his time. A graduate of Yale University and the president of Princeton, Edwards above all was a fiery preacher, whose sermons such as “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” sparked the Great Awakening in the eighteenth-century America.

This weekend’s free offer is The Works of Jonathan Edwards – a collection of the memoirs, treatises and important sermons and essays of this outstanding man. This offer is good only at OSNOVA store – for both Kindle and Nook.

After you download and enjoy this book, we do ask you to consider leaving a review for this book on Amazon or Barnes&Noble.

“…Some people actually imagine that the revelation in God’s Word is not enough to meet our needs. They think that God from time to time carries on an actual conversation with them, chatting with them, satisfying their doubts, testifying to His love for them, promising them support and blessings. As a result, their emotions soar; they are full of bubbling joy that is mixed with self-confidence and a high opinion of themselves. The foundation for these feelings, however, does not lie within the Bible itself, but instead rests on the sudden creations of their imaginations. These people are clearly deluded. God’s Word is for all of us and each of us; He does not need to give particular messages to particular people.” ~ Jonathan Edwards

“By Christ’s purchasing redemption, two things are intended: his satisfaction and his merit; the one pays our debt, and so satisfies; the other procures our title, and so merits. The satisfaction of Christ is to free us from misery; the merit of Christ is to purchase happiness for us.”  ~ Jonathan Edwards

“The enjoyment of [God] is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of earthly friends, are but shadows; but God is the substance. These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams. But God is the ocean.” ~ Jonathan Edwards

‎“Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.” ~ Jonathan Edwards
