Super E-Book Deals for Monday, April 1, 2013

Impact PlayerFREE TODAY – Can you smell it in the air? It’s the start of baseball season. The crack of the bat, the freshly mowed lawn, the aroma of stadium food and crowds lining up for autographs. Baseball season feels like the start of  spring to me and our first free book for April is Bobby Richardson’s Impact Player: Leaving a Lasting Legacy On and Off the Field. Bobby was one of the finest players ever to play second base for the New York Yankees, the founder of Baseball Chapel, and the baseball coach at my college. He was one of the most quality people that I’ve ever met in my life.

Former Yankee Bobby Richardson played alongside Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, Joe Pepitone, and Yogi Berra during one of the most prolific dynasties in baseball history, and he remains to this day the only player from the losing team ever to be named World Series MVP.

In Impact Player, Bobby shares his life story, including never-before-told tales from the Yankee clubhouse during the historic ’55-’65 pennant runs and World Series appearances. The book also features the unlikely friendship Richardson, a devout and outspoken Christian, shared with Yankee legend and renowned drinker and womanizer, Mickey Mantle.

The perfect combination of faith and baseball, Impact Player offers a rare glimpse into one of the most celebrated dynasties in the history of the game, and it paints a fascinating portrait of a life well-lived and the lasting rewards that come from knowing and loving God.

All in Good timeFREE TODAY – Tyndale is making All in Good Timeby Maureen Lang, available for free for Kindle today.

Dessa Caldwell has a dream: to open Pierson House, a refuge for former prostitutes in Denver’s roughest neighborhood. But after exhausting all charitable donations, Dessa still needs a loan, and nearly every bank in town has turned her down. Her last hope hinges on the owner of Hawkins National Bank.

Henry Hawkins has a secret: though he owns the most successful bank in town, his initial capital came from three successful raids on Wells Fargo coaches. Now he’s the most eligible bachelor in Denver, but to protect his criminal past, he’s built a fortress around his heart. Not even the boldest matchmaking mother can tempt him . . . until the day Dessa Caldwell ventures into his bank requesting a loan.

Though he’s certain her proposal is a bad investment, Henry is drawn to Dessa’s passion. But that same passion drives her to make rash decisions about Pierson House . . . and about whom she can trust. One man might hold the key to the future of her mission—but he also threatens to bring Henry’s darkest secrets to light. As the walls around their hearts begin to crumble, Henry and Dessa must choose between their plans and God’s, between safety and love.

church-zero-raising-1st-century-churches-out-of-the-ashes-of-the-21st-century-churchFREE TODAY – David C. Cook is making Church Zero: Raising 1st Century Churches out of the Ashes of the 21st Century Church, by Peyton Jones, available for free for the next two days.

A radical call to reform, Church Zero is a punk-rock approach to the pressing issue of gaining ground as rapidly as the early church.
With a fresh perspective forged in the dirty trenches of international post-Christian societies, Peyton Jones pulls no punches as he brings this message to the American Church: We have lost our way. 

The church is losing ground fast: losing the generation under age 30 and drawing few nonbelievers toward Christ.
Christ gave us a leadership model for commando outreach, and the church has ignored it for too long. Will we continue down the path of self-preservation, defending our stalled church structures? Or will we follow the blueprint Jesus lays out?
Church Zero challenges readers to once again become a radical, dangerous people who cannot be ignored. It’s time to break out!

beyond-mirror-ashley-weis-paperback-cover-artFREE TODAY – Ashley Weis’, Beyond the Mirroris available for free today on Kindle.

Your husband or boyfriend has confessed his addiction to porn, or maybe you found it on your own. Your romance is broken. Your heart is in a million pieces. And on top of that … you can’t seem to get over the aching wound that you are not enough.

It doesn’t matter what other people tell you. There is no pain that compares to this one. The burning desire to be the apple of your husband’s eye and to feel like you’ll never measure up, no matter how hard you try. And is life supposed to be one big beauty pageant anyway? Where is the hope and rest? Is it even possible to feel like enough?

There is rest.

When our husband’s or boyfriend’s porn addiction comes out into the open it completely destroys our trust and security, not to mention our self-esteem. It’s difficult to find the broken pieces of our marriage and heart, much less put them back together, especiallywhen we have no support and we’re told to just get over it or grow up.

Beyond the Mirror defines true beauty – beauty that transcends time and reflects the character of Jesus Christ vs. the counterfeit beauty that leads women down a path of endless striving. Ashley Weis, who has been down this long journey of never measuring up and then discovering her husband’s lust for other women, relates to readers and challenges each of us to break the glass of our own reflections and discover the joy and freedom that is waiting beyond the mirror.

Women who want to learn how to find the beauty in the storm and feel content in who God made them to be, women who have spent their entire lives trying to live up to impossible expectations of this world and themselves, women who have felt the numbness of never being good enough … this book is dedicated to you.

BEYONDBELIEFSUPER DEAL – SAVE 73% – ONLY $3.99

Josh Hamilton’s, Beyond Belief: Finding the Strength to Come Back, is available on Kindle today for just $3.99.

Josh Hamilton was the first player chosen in the first round of the 1999 baseball draft. He was destined to be one of those rare “high-character ” superstars. But in 2001, working his way from the minors to the majors, all of the plans for Josh went off the rails in a moment of weakness. What followed was a 4-year nightmare of drugs and alcohol, estrangement from friends and family, and his eventual suspension from baseball.

BEYOND BELIEF details the events that led up to the derailment. Josh explains how a young man destined for fame and wealth could allow his life to be taken over by drugs and alcohol. But it is also the memoir of a spiritual journey that breaks through pain and heartbreak and leads to the rebirth of his major-league career.

Josh Hamilton makes no excuses and places no blame on anyone other than himself. He takes responsibility for his poor decisions and believes his story can help millions who battle the same demons. “I have been given a platform to tell my story” he says. “I pray every night I am a good messenger.”

Charlotte Vance is a young woman who knows what she wants. But when the man she planned to marry joins the Shakers–a religious group that does not marry–she is left dumbfounded. And when her father brings home a new wife who is young enough to be Charlotte’s sister, it is more than she can bear. With the country–and her own household–on the brink of civil war, this pampered gentlewoman hatches a plan to avoid her new stepmother and win back her man by joining the Shaker community at Harmony Hill. Little does she know that this decision will lead her down a road toward unforeseen peace–and a very unexpected love.

reflectionsonthepsalmsSUPER DEAL – SAVE 79% – ONLY $2.99

C. S. Lewis’, Reflections on the Psalmsis available for just $2.99 today for Kindle.

“We delight to praise what we enjoy because the praise not merely expresses but completes the enjoyment; it is its appointed consummation.”

The Psalms were written as songs; we should read them as poetry, in the spirit of lyric, not as sermons or instructions. But they are also shrouded in mystery, and in this careful reading from one of our most trusted fellow travelers, C.S. Lewis helps us begin to reveal their meaning in our daily lives and in the world. Reflecting again and anew on these beloved passages, we can find both joy and difficulty, but also, always, real enlightenment and moments of transcendent grace.

“This book may not tell the reader all he would like to know about the Psalms, but it will tell him a good deal he will not like to know about himself.” —Times Literary Supplement

“[Lewis] . . . displays in this volume the same keen insight and gifted tongue that have made him one of the most highly respected essayists using the English language.” —Chicago Sunday Tribune

“Full of illuminating observations.” —New York Times
