August Book Giveaway

As of today, I will be going on a blog break, though there will be some popular posts re-running and some guest blog posts from you! It is important to rest. Following last weeks bumper book giveaway where we gave away 28 free books in less than an hour, we have another great crop of free resources to give away this month below:

Take Words With You by Tim Kerr

(Please contact takewordswithyou@gmail.com to purchase this book.)

“Many years ago I discovered a precious truth regarding prayer: God loves to hear his own words prayed back to him! When a small child crawls up on the lap of their father and says, “Daddy when are you going to take us to the zoo like you promised?” the father smiles and assures his child he has not forgotten and is very much looking forward to doing what he promised (when the time is right). In the same way, our heavenly Father delights to hear us remind him of his promises to us. The Bible is in fact a great big prayer manual that should fill and guide our prayers each and every day.

It is hoped that the many promises of God written here will be prayed back to God in prayer as we seek to enter into God’s purposes accomplished for us through Christ’s cross. Sometimes we remember the gist of a promise but cannot remember what was said or where it is found in Scripture. This manual has been written to make that process easier by organizing the promises of God by categories and themes.”

Unseen Realities: Heaven and Hell, Angels and Demons by R.C. Sproul

www.christianfocus.com

The concept of the invisible spiritual realm is so often something which is difficult for us to grasp. If we can see, hear, and feel it we can take it on face value that it is a reality. But what about things that are unseen? Scripture speaks about Heaven, hell, angels and Satan which are a part of the invisible spiritual realm. Bible teacher R. C. Sproul helps us glean a better understanding on these and come to a realisation that in fact all four are realities.
“I believe that if we are to be consistent Christians, believing all of the Bible rather than portions of it, we must recognize that the supernatural places and beings described on its pages are real. There is an uncompromised supernaturalism at the heart of the Christian worldview, and we must not let the world’s skepticism with regard to these things affect our belief systems. We must trust and affirm that there is much more to reality than meets the eye.” R. C. Sproul

HCSB Translation

hcsb.org

100 scholars and English stylists from 17 denominations, prayerfully, translated what is one of the most significant Bible translations available, the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB).

Taking into account the significant advancements in scholarship, translation theory, and contemporary English usage, the HCSB will satisfy both those new to the faith and seasoned scholars.

“The Holman Christian Standard Bible is one of the most textually sophisticated English bibles available anywhere.” - Dr. Peter Flint, Canada Research Chair in Dead Sea Scrolls Studies, Trinity Western University

In Light of Eternity: The Life of Leonard Ravenhill

http://www.ravenhillbiography.com/

“My father lived daily in light of eternity, always seeking to please the one who enlisted him as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Before he ever stood in the pulpit, he stood before God. He was a man of prayer. Prayer was his life and his preaching reflected the fact that he had been alone with God.”  – David Ravenhill

“The truth is, even though I am known now as an apologist for the Christian faith, dealing with the intellectual issues of Christianity, I really owe any passion for God, for prayer and for true revival that initially began in me, to Leonard Ravenhill. He, by God’s grace, was the catalyst that has caused the passion to know God to continue to this day.” – Ravi Zacharias
