7Jen Hatmaker’s book, 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excessis just $6.99 today for Kindle.

American life can be excessive, to say the least. That’s what Jen Hatmaker had to admit after taking in hurricane victims who commented on the extravagance of her family’s upper middle class home. She once considered herself unmotivated by the lure of prosperity, but upon being called “rich” by an undeniably poor child, evidence to the contrary mounted, and a social experiment turned spiritual was born.

7 is the true story of how Jen (along with her husband and her children to varying degrees) took seven months, identified seven areas of excess, and made seven simple choices to fight back against the modern-day diseases of greed, materialism, and overindulgence.

Food. Clothes. Spending. Media. Possessions. Waste. Stress. They would spend thirty days on each topic, boiling it down to the number seven. Only eat seven foods, wear seven articles of clothing, and spend money in seven places. Eliminate use of seven media types, give away seven things each day for one month, adopt seven green habits, and observe “seven sacred pauses.” So, what’s the payoff from living a deeply reduced life? It’s the discovery of a greatly increased God—a call toward Christ-like simplicity and generosity that transcends social experiment to become a radically better existence.

A House DividedRobert Whitlow’s novel, A House Dividedis available for just $2.99 today for Kindle.

Corbin, a longtime legal champion for the downtrodden, is slowly drinking himself into the grave. His love for “mountain water” has cost him his marriage to the godliest woman he knows, ruined his relationship with his daughter, Roxy, and reduced the business at his small Georgia law firm to a level where he can barely keep the bill collectors at bay. But it isn’t until his son, Ray, threatens to limit Corbin’s time with his grandson that Corbin begins to acknowledge he might have a problem.

Despite the mess that surrounds his personal life and against the advice of everyone he knows, Corbin takes on a high-stakes tort case on behalf of two boys who have contracted non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma due to an alleged chemical exposure. The defendant, a fertilizer company, is the largest employer in the area. The lawsuit becomes a tornado that sucks Corbin, Ray, and Roxy into an increasingly deadly vortex. Equally intense pressure within the family threatens to destroy, once and for all, the thin threads that connect them.

Corbin must find the strength to stand up to his personal demons. Justice for two dying boys depends on it . . . his family depends on it.

“Fans of John Grisham will find much to like here.”

Doctrine MattersJohn Piper’s book, Doctrine Matters: Ten Theological Trademarks From a Lifetime of Preaching, is only $2.99 today for Kindle.

Here is the theological summary of one preacher’s lifetime of investment in a local church. Completing three decades of pastoral ministry at Bethlehem Baptist, John Piper gave a final sermon series on the doctrinal emphases from his years of regular preaching. These ten emphases, delivered first as ten sermons, and now edited for this volume, embody the legacy Piper hopes to leave.

But these chapters are not the memoirs of a retired pastor. These are not truths to be stored away to collect dust. The vision of God in these pages is vibrant and poised to turn the world upside down.

These ten doctrines, as Piper says, are “wildly untamable, explosively uncontainable, and electrically future-creating.” Immerse yourself in this vision of God in his splendor, and you will want to act, to build something. You will find yourself compelled to dream big and risk bigger for the glory of Jesus.

The Apostle MurdersFREE TODAY – Jim Laughter’s, The Apostle Murdersis free today for Kindle.

“A chilling suspense novel with gripping characters and a plot that reaches into the depths of good and evil. Some of Jim Laughter’s best writing.”
Charles W. Sasser, author of THE DETACHMENT DELTA and OSS COMMANDO series.

“Laughter weaves a unique blend of plot and characters that will keep you reading to the end…believer or not.”

Reverend Samuel (Preach) Preston is a full-time Christian evangelist traveling the country preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. But Preach is on a mission — a mission to re-create the martyrdom of the original apostles of Jesus Christ. To his family he is father and grandfather.

The UnveilingFREE TODAY – Tamara Leigh’s, The Unveilingbook one in the Age of Faith series, is available for free today for Kindle.

12th century England: Two men vie for the throne: King Stephen the usurper and young Duke Henry the rightful heir. Amid civil and private wars, alliances are forged, loyalties are betrayed, families are divided, and marriages are made.

For four years, Lady Annyn Bretanne has trained at arms with one end in mind—to avenge her brother’s murder as God has not deemed it worthy to do. Disguised as a squire, she sets off to exact revenge on a man known only by his surname, Wulfrith. But when she holds his fate in her hands, her will wavers and her heart whispers that her enemy may not be an enemy after all.

Baron Wulfrith, renowned trainer of knights, allows no women within his walls for the distraction they breed. What he never expects is that the impetuous young man sent to train under him is a woman who seeks his death—nor that her unveiling will test his faith and distract the warrior from his purpose.

MagdaleneFREE TODAY – Angela Hunt’s, Magdaleneis free today for Kindle.

Mary Magdalene
The controversial woman with a past only one Man could forgive. A true love story that changed the face of history.

“I was Miryam of Magdala, seller of fine fabrics and wife of Yaakov the fisherman. With my husband and son, I held a place of honor among my countrymen until a company of rogue soldiers took everything from me. I might not be Roman, but I knew injustice when I saw it. And I had been most grievously wronged.”

In an era when women are sequestered and silenced, Miryam of Magdala lives a contended life until her son’s careless gesture evokes a hostile action that shatters her serenity. With no hope of justice, Miryam commits an unthinkable act…and descends into depths of darkness that threaten her life and her sanity.

Even after Yeshua the Messiah dramatically restores her life, Miryam can neither forget nor forgive unresolved injustices. Prodded by a hunger for vengeance she will not deny, this woman of uncommon courage risks her life and her heart by drawing destiny into her own hands.

OrthodoxyFREE TODAY – G. K. Chesterton’s classic work, Orthodoxyis free today for Kindle.

Now with a foreword by Matthew Lee Anderson

Antiquated. Unimaginative. Repressive. We’ve all heard these common reactions to orthodox Christian beliefs. Even Christians themselves are guilty of the tendency to discard historic Christianity.

Yet as we read through the literature in Christianity’s past, we learn that we are in better company with our beliefs than we might think. Through his enchanting book, Orthodoxy, G.K. Chesterton reminds us of the paradoxes of our faith and the joy that comes when we explore them.

From the foreword by Matthew Lee Anderson, author of The End of Our Exploring:

“How can we contrive to be at once astonished at the world and yet at home in it?”

And with that question, G.K. Chesterton recounts the heart of an intellectual journey that took him from the edges of a nihilistic pessimism into the center of the paradoxical joy of Christian orthodoxy. His book is not a defense of the Christian faith, at least not primarily, so much as an attempt to explain how the startling paradoxes and sharp edges of the creed explain everything else.

It is a dated work, dealing in the categories and concerns of Chesterton’s contemporaries, and yet it comes nearer timelessness than anything we have today. Though Orthodoxy was written near the start of the 20th century, I have dubbed it the most important book for the 21st. There are few claims I have made in my life that I am more sure of than that one.

Each of the twelve stones represent twelve very distinct areas of focus of which God may be addressing in our lives as we move closer to fulfilling His dreams for each of us. With reports of heavenly gemstones appearing in regions all over the world, the book, The 12 Gemstones of Revelation helps us discover what message these stones might be bringing to this generation, to this world, and most importantly, to our hearts.

creating a missional cultureJR Woodward’s book, Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the Worldis available for just $2.99 today for Kindle.

Once upon a time, Moses had had enough.

Exhausted by the challenge of leading the Israelites from slavery to the Promised Land, Moses cried out to God, “What have I done to displease you that you put the burden of all these people on me? . . . If this is how you are going to treat me, please go ahead and kill me” (Exodus 11:11, 15).

If that sounds hauntingly familiar to you, you may be the senior pastor of a contemporary church. The burden of Christian leadership is becoming increasingly unbearable–demanding skills not native to the art of pastoring; demanding time that makes sabbath rest and even normal sleep patterns seem extravagant; demanding inhuman levels of efficiency, proficiency and even saintliness.

No wonder pastors seem and even feel less human these days. No wonder they burn out or break down at an alarming rate; no wonder the church is missing the mark on its mission.

And the only one who knows that fact is James. Which means the only one who can stop him from ruining the lives of the people James knows and loves, is James.

What is the devil’s plan? And more importantly, with God’s help, can James stop it before it’s too late? Find out now in The Devil’s Game.

Pray for Oklahoma

In the aftermath of yesterday’s horrific tornado that cut a 20 mile swath of destruction into the landscape of Oklahoma, Super E-Book Deals asks our readers to join people across the nation in praying for the people of Oklahoma.

Families in Oklahoma woke up to their new reality this morning. Many parents sent their children to school yesterday and never got a chance to welcome them back. Rescue workers are continuing to work feverishly in hopes that they may find someone or some people still alive. It’s days like yesterday that remind us of how precious life is. If you are a parent, give your child an extra hug today. If you are married, hold your spouse a little longer and put aside the petty argument. If you have a home, consider sharing it with someone in need. And, if you have some extra money, maybe send it to Oklahoma instead of buying another book today. We will only have free books on the site today. Our hope is that you might choose to spend the money that you would have spent purchasing books today on relief efforts for Oklahoma instead.

Jesus Killed My ChurchFREE TODAY – Randy Bohlender’s book, Jesus Killed My Churchis free today for Kindle.
God is forever writing our story, and He gives us the dignity of being able to introduce characters that occasionally wrinkle the plot. Often we fear that we’ve permanently changed the trajectory of what might have been if we’d only been more obedient or pious. He smiles at this. He alone knows how many pages He has left before He needs to bring resolve, and He knows that it’s going to be okay.

Jesus Killed My Church is the story of a church plant that should have gone gangbusters yet managed to go bust, and a church planter who learned that the only measure of success is recognizing the leadership of Jesus as perfect. Randy Bohlender relays his lessons learned in a humorous way that drives home a point – that God has a plan even when ours fall apart.

Paul Addison’s, Churchill: The Unexpected Hero is an Amazon monthly deal at just $2.99.

During the Second World War, Winston Churchill won two resounding victories. The first was a victory over Nazi Germany, the second a victory over the legion of sceptics who had derided his judgement, denied his claims to greatness, and excluded him from high office on the grounds that he was sure to be a danger to King and Country. In this incisive biography, Paul Addison examines both the life of the most iconic figure in twentieth-century British history, and also the battle over
his reputation, which continues to this day. – ;During the Second World War, Winston Churchill won two resounding victories. The first was a victory over Nazi Germany, the second a victory over the legion of sceptics who had derided his judgement, denied his claims to greatness, and excluded him from high office on the grounds that he was sure to be a danger to King and Country.

Churchill was the only British politician of the twentieth century to become an enduring national hero. The curious thing is that it happened at the age of 65, at a time when he was considered to be a spent force, with a track-record of disastrous decisions. All but the most hostile of his adversaries conceded that he possessed great abilities, remarkable eloquence, and a streak of genius. But it was almost universally agreed that he was a shameless egotist, an opportunist without principles or
convictions, an unreliable colleague, an erratic policy-maker who lacked judgement, and a reckless amateur strategist with a dangerous passion for war and bloodshed. At one time or another in his career, he had offended every party and faction in the land, yet despite this he became the embodiment
of national unity, an uncrowned king who threatened to eclipse the monarchy.

In this incisive new biography, Paul Addison tells the story of Churchill’s life in parallel with the history of his reputation. He seeks to explain why Churchill was transformed into a national hero, and why his heroic status has endured ever since in spite of the attempts of iconoclasts to debunk him. He argues that we are now in a position to reach beyond the mythology – both positive and negative – to see the real Winston Churchill, a warrior-statesman whose qualities were remarkably
consistent through all the vicissitudes of his career. – ;…this volume is ideal as a very short introduction to a very big man. – David Reynolds, The English Historical Review;Addison’s book could be read with profit and enjoyment by anyone interested in modern history – The Independent
