Super E-Book Deals for Saturday, February 2, 2013

Happy Saturday! Hope you are enjoying a good weekend and getting a chance to read a little bit.

Here are today’s deals.

washingtonFREE TODAY – February is Black History Month, and in honor of this special month, we begin today’s deals with Booker T. Washington’s autobiography. Up From Slavery: An Autobiography is free today on Kindle.

Booker T. Washington (1856 – 1915) was born a slave but would later become one of the most influential black men in United States history. Washington advocated peaceful protest and believed violence would hurt the chance for African-Americans to secure civil rights. W.E.B. Du Bois, another famous writer and civil rights activist in the early 20th century, believed in stronger protests. Though both men went about things different ways they both are still well read today and recognized for helping African-Americans get civil rights.

This version of Up From Slavery: An Autobiography includes a table of contents.

they shall seeFREE TODAY – Athol Dickson’s, They Shall See God is free today for Kindle.

Little Katie was a Christian. Her very best friend Ruth was a Jew. The girls’ eyewitness testimony sent a bad man to Louisiana’s infamous Angola prison. 25 years later, Ruth has become an embittered Rabbi, Kate is a lonely widow, the bad man is out, and people are dying in the strangest of ways.

Torn apart in childhood by animosities beyond their understanding, Kate and Ruth can no longer elude the past’s unfinished business. To survive, these very different women must reach out to each other in spite of the mayhem and mistrust that shrouds one vital truth: sometimes the most dangerous of enemies crouches just inside the human heart.

“The writing… sparkles. Dickson tells a fascinating tale that incorporates murder, mystery, love, fanatical obsession, Jewish and Christian dialogue, and the depths of relationships… It’ll have you tightly in its grip until the final pages.” (Eric Wilson, author of novelizations for Fireproof and Facing the Giants)

“Hooked, hooked and hooked!… A compelling story with profound faith implications… Take short a great ride through the final pages.” (Sigmund Brouwer, author of the Canary List)

DyingSUPER DEAL – SAVE 87% – ONLY $1.99

Lorena McCourtney’s Dying to Read, has over 70 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon.

All she wanted was a paycheck. What she got was a murder.

Cate Kinkaid’s life is . . . well, frankly it’s floundering. Her social life, her career, her haircut–they’re all a mess. Unemployed, she jumps at the chance to work for her PI uncle, even though she has no experience and no instincts. After all, she is just dabbling in the world of private investigating until she can find a “real” job.

All she has to do for her first assignment is determine that a particular woman lives at a particular address. Simple, right? But when she reaches the dark Victorian house, she runs into an hungry horde of gray-haired mystery readers and a dead body. This routine PI job is turning out to be anything but simple. Is Cate in over her head?

think-john-piperSUPER DEAL – SAVE 71% – ONLY $4.61

John Piper’s Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God with a forward by beloved professor, Mark Noll, is available on Kindle today (just two days before Piper’s annual Desiring God Conference) for just $4.61.

This book will help Christians think about thinking. Focusing on the life of the mind helps us to know God better, love him more, and care for the world. Along with an emphasis on emotions and the experience of God, we also need to practice careful thinking about God. Piper contends that “thinking is indispensable on the path to passion for God.” So how are we to maintain a healthy balance of mind and heart, thinking and feeling?

Piper urges us to think for the glory of God. He demonstrates from Scripture that glorifying God with our minds and hearts is not either-or, but both-and. Thinking carefully about God fuels passion and affections for God. Likewise, Christ-exalting emotion leads to disciplined thinking.

Readers will be reminded that “the mind serves to know the truth that fuels the fires of the heart.”
