The ThornFREE TODAY – Beverly Lewis’ book, The Thornthe first book in The Rose Trilogy series is available for free today on Kindle.

Lancaster County, with its rolling meadows and secret byways, may seem idyllic, but it is not without its thorns. THE ROSE TRILOGY is the stirring saga of two Amish sisters on the fringes of the church, and the unforeseen discoveries that change their lives.

Rose Kauffman, a spirited young woman, has a close friendship with the bishop’s foster son. Nick dresses Plain and works hard but stirs up plenty of trouble too. Rose’s sister cautions her against becoming too involved, but Rose is being courted by a good, Amish fellow, so dismisses the warnings. Meanwhile, Rose keeps house for an English widower but is startled when he forbids her to ever go upstairs. What is the man hiding?

Rose’s older sister, Hen, knows more than she should about falling for the wrong man. Unable to abandon her Amish ways, Hen is soon separated from her very modern husband. Mattie, their young daughter, must visit her father regularly, but Hen demands she wear Amish attire–and speak Pennsylvania Dutch, despite her husband’s wishes. Will Hen be able to reestablish her place among the People she abandoned? And will she be able to convince Rose to steer clear of rogue neighbor Nick?

Out of CommissionFREE TODAY – Paul Chappell’s, Out of Commission: Getting Every Christian Back to the Great Commission, is free today for Kindle.

Is Christ’s last command your first priority? Out of Commission is a call for every Christian to reengage in reaching the lost through focused soulwinning and fervent discipleship.

You’d be hard pressed to meet a dedicated Christian who doesn’t say the greatest work on Earth is evangelization. But, while all of us give lip service to evangelizing and discipling, the effect of our labor seems woefully behind. Somewhere there is a disconnect between the priorities we claim and the actions we practice. Something is broken—or maybe just out of commission.

This book is an invitation to “look under the hood”—to examine why we don’t witness for Christ as we should, why our local churches are neglecting soulwinning and discipleship, and how we can get back to making Christ’s last command our first priority.

Written for every Christian who desires to obey the Great Commission of Christ, this comprehensive volume is motivational and practical, diagnostic and corrective. Whether you are new to evangelism or an experienced soulwinner, Out of Commission will challenge and equip you to share your faith and more effectively reach your community for Christ.

A Country LifeArthur Elfstrom’s, A Country Life: A Collection of Poemsis available for free today for Kindle.

Arthur Theodore Elfstrom (1906-1980) was a master storyteller. His medium was poetry. A Country Life, is the book that he always wanted to publish when he was alive. In its pages you will see the memories of a boy growing up a Michigan farm. These poems will inspire and encourage you.

Art was a man of deep faith. His poems reflect that faith. He loved Jesus with all of his heart. He loved his wife. He loved his daughters. He loved his sons-in-law. And he loved his grandchildren. It was his faith in Christ that was his beacon of light in the darkest of days, his compass on the journey of life, and his hope for eternity.

The pages herein contain the poems of a man who was continually in awe of the creative genius of God. The poems cover the beautiful themes of family, faith, discovery, nature, scrumptious food, boyhood adventures, busy towns, and sleepy meadows. Farmers, their wives, rascally sons, a hermit, pet rabbits and trusty horses all play prominent roles in the narrative of the poetry. Each poem tells a story of a time when the pace of life was simpler. Families were in tune with each other; not continually connected to electronic devices. Relationships with friends and neighbors mattered. Shared meals, piping hot coffee, hard work, and prayer were part of everyday life for the Swedish immigrants living on a farm near Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Enjoy . . . A Country Life.

PujolsSUPER DEAL – SAVE 94% – ONLY 99 CENTS

Baseball fans are sure to enjoy, Pujols: More Than The Game, available today for Kindle for just 99 cents.

After a decade starring for the St. Louis Cardinals, Albert Pujols is already compared with names in the highest reaches of baseball’s pantheon: Ruth, Gehrig, Aaron, Mays. Slugging his way toward the Hall of Fame, Pujols has raised the game’s standard for greatness beyond any statistical measure. But the standard by which Pujols measures himself has less to do with baseball performance than with honoring God and exemplifying his faith for the millions who follow him.

From his birthplace in the Dominican Republic to his high-school days in Kansas City, from a single season in the minor leagues to the World Series and nine All-Star Games, Pujols has developed his immense talents on the baseball diamond, all the while focusing his direction—and the direction of his family—with the belief that a higher power is behind every achievement.

Authors Scott Lamb and Tim Ellsworth spare no tale of this growing baseball legend, all the while accentuating “the unseen hand of divine providence” that has shaped the man Albert Pujols has become. It’s a story that will inspire, and a reminder of the human quality behind superhuman achievement.

A story—still in the making—of allowing God’s strength to guide one man’s path to be the best his game has ever seen.

His numbers are staggering.

In 2010 Albert Pujols became the first player in baseball history to bat .300 with 30 home runs and 100 runs batted in for ten consecutive seasons. Babe Ruth didn’t do it. Ted Williams didn’t do it. Hank Aaron didn’t do it. The fact that this was accomplished in Pujols’ first ten seasons only makes the achievement more, well, Ruthian.

Albert Pujols’ story goes beyond numbers, though. Beyond the bright lights and packed stadiums of Major League Baseball. Even beyond the adulation of millions who have come to see the St. Louis Cardinal star as the rare “once-in-a-lifetime-player” who transcends team loyalties.

Through the 2010 season, Pujols hit 408 home runs. And every time he touched home plate after sending another baseball to a random bookshelf or trophy case, Pujols pointed heavenward. Toward the strength behind his other, worldly talents, toward the inspiration that lifts him on a daily basis, regardless of his team’s place in the standings. For Jesus Christ is Albert Pujols’ first love. Faith, family, then maybe baseball.

SUPER DEAL – SAVE 94% – ONLY 99 CENTS

The Case for FaithLee Strobel’s book, The Case for Faithis only 99 cents today for Kindle.

In his #1 best-seller The Case for Christ, legally trained investigative reporter Lee Strobel examined the claims of Christ, reaching the hard-won verdict that Jesus is God’s unique son.

But despite the compelling historical evidence that Strobel presented, many people grapple with serious concerns about faith in God. As in a court of law, they want to shout, “Objection!” They say, “If God is love, then what about all the suffering in our world?” Or, “If Jesus is the door to heaven, then what about the millions who have never heard of him?” Or, “If God cares for everyone, then why does he eternally torture some in hell?”

In The Case for Faith, Strobel turns his tenacious investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief–the eight “heart” barriers to faith. The Case for Faith is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with formidable intellectual barriers standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in discussing Christianity with even their most skeptical friends.

UnmutedFREE TODAY – Jim Wall’s, Unmuted: Restoring Your Church’s Voiceis available for free today for Kindle.

The Church has lost its voice in America. It’s time to get it back.
Most people still believe in God. Many of them hold a negative view of church. Frankly, they’ve given up on it. And it’s only getting worse as time goes on. Though some churches are growing, church attendance overall continues to shrink, while our culture sinks deeper into darkness. A world—increasingly desperate for hope—is begging us to do something right now to restore the voice of hope in the world. We must act now.

In Unmuted: Restoring Your Church’s Voice, you will find everything you need to do just that in your community, using the six primary dynamics established by the original Acts 2 church:

• They were unified around a God-given vision
• They were empowered by the Holy Spirit
• They preached a relevant, simple truth
• They were hungry to know God
• They genuinely cared for one another
• They unselfishly cared about the community around them

Incorporate these six dynamics into the unique DNA of your church and you will raise a generation of mature, close-knit Christians, committed to defining their lives by the God-given vision of making disciples of everyone, everywhere. You will also see your church’s influence grow. You can still make a difference in your world!

What is the GospelSUPER DEAL – SAVE 92% – ONLY 99 CENTS

Greg Gilbert’s, What  Is The Gospelis available for just 99 cents today for Kindle.

What is the gospel? It seems like a simple question, yet it has been known to incite some heated responses, even in the church. How are we to formulate a clear, biblical understanding of the gospel? Tradition, reason, and experience all leave us ultimately disappointed. If we want answers, we must turn to the Word of God.

Greg Gilbert does so in What Is the Gospel? Beginning with Paul’s systematic presentation of the gospel in Romans and moving through the sermons in Acts, Gilbert argues that the central structure of the gospel consists of four main subjects: God, man, Christ, and a response. The book carefully examines each and then explores the effects the gospel can have in individuals, churches, and the world. Both Christian and non-Christian readers will gain a clearer understanding of the gospel in this valuable resource.

FREE TODAY – Gail Sattler’s, The Narrow Pathis free today on Kindle.

The Narrow Path is a story about a couple who must face their differences and learn to work together as they look toward a lifetime of love. Miranda Klassen’s Mennonite church is big and modern and she loves the mixture of faith, action, and activity. But in order to follow her dream she moves across the country to a small town to organize the 75th anniversary celebration of an Old Order Mennonite church. Ted Wiebe has been assigned to assist and guide Miranda, feeling good that his church has chosen another Mennonite. But except for sharing the same basic faith and denomination, their churches have nothing else in common. His church embraces old-style roots, so Ted expects to find someone similar at the airport: a woman who never wears pants, no body piercing (including pierced ears), no makeup, and wearing a head covering as a sign of modesty, someone else who lives in accordance with old-fashioned values. But the woman who acknowledges him is wearing unreasonably high and outlandishly expensive shoes, denim jeans, and makeup, including bright red lipstick. As she gets off the plane she’s fiddling with an iPod and yapping on the cell phone. When Miranda enters Ted’s church and community she feels like she’s been transported back into Little House On The Prairie. Ted is supposed to help Miranda fit in, and Miranda is supposed to help his church reach out into the community. When it’s time to start planning and organizing for the celebration, then the fun really begins.

christianishFREE TODAY – Mark Steele’s, Christianish: What If We’re Not Really Following Jesus at All? is available for free today for Kindle.

It may feel like authentic faith. It may even look like the real deal. Yet it’s often easy to settle for the souvenir t-shirt—the appearance of a transformed heart—instead of taking the actual trip through true life-change. We find ourselves settling for a personal faith that’s been polluted by culture, and diluted by other people’s take on spirituality.

Christianish tells the story of one man’s journey to move from the in-between to a life that’s centered on Christ. To move forward, author Mark Steele goes back to the beginning, to examine Christ’s life and words. Through stories and insights that are sometimes profound, often hilarious, and always honest, Mark delivers a compelling look at what our faith is all about.

Jumping Through FiresSUPER DEAL – SAVE 86% – ONLY $1.99

David Nasser is one of my favorite authors. If you enjoy reading authors like Francis Chan or David Platt, you’ll love Nasser. His book, Jumping through Fires: The Gripping Story of One Man’s Escape from Revolution to Redemption, is only $1.99 for Kindle today.

Religion has left an undeniable mark in our world. Some see it as the answer to every problem, while others see it as the problem itself. Simply put, religion is the single greatest force in history. But in a much more intimate sense, what does religion mean to one life?

In this honest, suspenseful, and moving memoir, author David Nasser tells of a life filled with heartbreak and healing. Forced to escape from a country gripped in a religious revolution, David and his family run for their lives in an attempt to find refuge. Through the lens of a terrified boy we see the destructive power of religion and the pull of peer pressure as he tries to fit into a new culture.

Nasser’s raw and transparent account of his transition from hating religion to having a living faith in Christ will impact readers from across the religious spectrum. His unflinchingly honest, yet humorous, assessment of the church from an outsider’s point of view will both enlighten readers and spur them to renewed and refined outreach.

For anyone who has seen the lie of religion, whether in Iran or Alabama or anywhere in between, Nasser offers the truth of Jesus.

For the City relates the wisdom gleaned from years of serving their cities for the sake of God’s kingdom.

Hugh Halter and Matt Smay’s, AND: The Gathered and Scattered Church, is just $2.99 for Kindle today.

What is happening to the church in America today? By all appearances, it looks like we are ‘doing’ church better than we ever have. Our programs are effective, our pastors are relevant, and our buildings are increasing in size. In the past 30 years the number of mega-churches has increased from under 100 to over 7,500. In the past 10 years the number of multi-site churches has increased from under 100 to over 2,000. By the numbers, these church movements enjoy the national platform, the national voice, and the resources to profoundly impact the Kingdom.
But to what end? In spite of the rapid growth of these prevailing church movements we are still losing ground, and the church in the west is in massive decline. Numerous studies and books have been written documenting the flight of members from the institutional church.
Yet the local church is Jesus’ plan for reaching the world.
The strength of the mega-church and multi-site models can be found in a strong emphasis on attracting people to the church, where they have an opportunity to encounter Jesus Christ. Yet many younger leaders are rejecting this model in favor of a more incarnational approach to ministry. These missional communities tend to focus their attention on trying to release people into ministry.
In recent years a growing schism has emerged between those calling themselves incarnational leaders and those leading the prevailing church models. But what if we were able to incorporate the insights of both models into a cohesive understanding of the church? Can we bring together the very best of the attractional AND missional models for church ministry?
What is needed is not is another book about how to do church better. Our focus on the form church is misguided when the vast majority of unchurched Christians and non-believers aren’t moving toward any form of church. Beautifully Sent will give permission for leaders to value existing church forms while catalyzing a missional movement of incarnational people into the world.

secondthanksgivingFREE TODAY – The Second Thanksgivingwritten by Douglas Lloyd McIntosh, is free today 0n Kindle.

Has Almighty God intervened in American history? Many great Americans have thought so, including President Abraham Lincoln.

In a Civil War era prologue to this historically accurate story about the Pilgrims of Plymouth in 1623, Lincoln signs his wartime proclamation making the traditional New England holiday of Thanksgiving a permanent national holiday for the United States of America. Laying down his pen, Lincoln disabuses his listeners of several false or inaccurate legends about the Mayflower Pilgrims. They were not perfect people but all-too-human, the usual combination of admirable strengths and appalling weaknesses. They made mistakes in 1623 that nearly destroyed their settlement at Plymouth. With their backs to the wall they eventually declared a day of fasting, humiliation and prayer. With no other hope remaining, they saw their desperate prayers lead to an astounding demonstration of God’s existence, power and mercy—divine intervention on a scale seldom experienced outside the pages of the Bible. The Pilgrims owed their very survival to this extraordinary instance of providential American history.

As President Lincoln says, “Our nation began with a miracle.”

In the spring of 1623, feisty and beautiful Hester Cooke arrives in New Plymouth with her two young daughters and little son to be reunited with the love of her life, husband Francis Cooke, and their elder son John, whom she has not seen since both sailed on the Mayflower nearly three years earlier. The previous year’s harvest has been catastrophic, far too meager to celebrate with feasting similar to the First Thanksgiving of 1621. The people of Plymouth barely survived last winter, thanks only to what men like Francis and boys like John have learned about hunting, gathering and fishing from their friends in the local Wampanoag “Indian” Tribe. Even now the settlers are living on the verge of starvation.

Reunited with son John, Hester discovers that her husband Francis is out on a dangerous mission with Captain Miles Standish and other militiamen to prevent a conflict between a group of dishonest English traders and the distant Massachusett Tribe from exploding into open warfare that could destroy Plymouth. After the peril is defused for the present, Hester and Francis are reunited at last, settling into their new lives. As the planting season begins, Governor William Bradford and the Plymouth town council reach a momentous decision. Defying the rules set down by their London financial backers, they abandon communal farming (a form of what would now be called socialism) in favor of private property and free enterprise.

The opportunity to profit from one’s own hard work on one’s own land soon has every man, woman and child out working in the fields. Lack of motivation is a thing of the past, but Hester and Francis soon discover that Christians who take their faith seriously can still fall prey to overwork, insensitivity, envy, selfishness and strife.

These conflicts play out over one of the most dramatic years in American colonial history. The great Wampanoag chieftain Massasoit Ousamequin, who has kept the peace, falls ill to the point of death. The Pilgrims learn that two Massachusett braves are attempting to start a war to destroy all the white newcomers. Should these troublemakers be stopped, even if by a murderous preemptive strike?

What happens afterward, when nature itself seems to turn against all the inhabitants of the land, with the fingers of blame pointed squarely at the people of Plymouth by enraged Native Americans? What happens when the situation becomes so ominous, so deadly, so far beyond human solution, that the Pilgrims have nowhere to turn except to God and the power of prayer?

A novel about true historical events from screenwriter Douglas Lloyd McIntosh, who adapted LOVE’S LONG JOURNEY and LOVE’S ABIDING JOY for the Hallmark Channel, films in the LOVE COMES SOFTLY series by the beloved Christian novelist Janette Oke.

sacred

SUPER DEAL – SAVE 77% – ONLY $2.99

Chris Surber’s, The Sacred Journeyis on sale for just $2.99 today.

The Sacred Journey is a collection of insights, thoughts, and personal experiences centered on and emanating from the Beatitudes of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount.

Within its pages we are invited to consider the radical love with which God pursues His creation. God in Jesus Christ was determined to make a way for sinners to be forgiven at the Cross. While man had sinned and caused a divide between himself and His creator, God has insisted that those who receive the grace and mercy offered in His Son shall be forgiven of sin and reconciled unto God in eternally secure love.

God in salvation is singly focused on reconciling all who will place their trust, their faith, and their hope in that sacrifice. It is not we who make our way to God through good works, right belief, perfectly ordered creedal statements, or any other edifice of human composition. It is God who pursues us heatedly to receive the radical beauty of the violence of the Cross.

God has pursued, forgiven, and reconciled us unto Himself. Through the wrath which was poured out upon Jesus, mercy was poured out on us. Salvation is purely the work of God’s mercy and grace. We who have received Him have done so by faith when we have responded to the pull of God on our hearts. Grace rests upon us because God has loved us. What, in response to such a violent grace, should our reply to God be?

Firing-Jesus-Main

FREE TODAY – In last night’s posting, I introduced you to Greg Stier, the person that I believe is more passionate about reaching this generation of students with the Gospel than anyone else I know.

This past fall, Stier wrote the book Firing Jesus. It’s a short e-book with the following premise:

Would Jesus Make the Cut at Your Church?

Here’s the setting.

Three-and-a-half months ago JC Davidson was hired as the youth leader at Spring Valley Church. But his unorthodox approach to youth ministry has raised more than a few eyebrows and stirred up controversy. An emergency meeting is called to force the issue of whether he should stay or be let go. The book explores the reactions, political maneuvering and ministry approach in a way that gets you thinking, “Could this happen at my church?”

Firing Jesus takes you on an imaginary journey into how Jesus might lead as a youth pastor in the 21st Century…and one potential response for how the church might react.

Download your copy here. When you do, you will also receive the bi-weekly e-zine “energize”, specially designed for youth leaders to give you ongoing help, tips and encouragement as you seek to make disciples who make disciples.

callingFREE TODAY – I think of Janette Oke as the “godmother” of Christian historical fiction. For years, Oke, a best-selling Christian author, has told compelling stories in a way that brings readers into the historical context.

Her stories are fused with adventure, faith in God, great story telling and pure romance that leave readers feeling like their faith has grown stronger.

The Calling of Emily Evans, was originally published in 1990. I remember purchasing the book as a gift for my wife when we were dating. It is book number one in Oke’s Women of the West series of books.

The book tells the story of Emily. Here is Amazon’s description.

She feels God nudging her toward ministry, but what options are there for a young single woman? Emily Evans has a hard time getting herself to class on time, much less figuring out God’s will for her life. Then, to her surprise, she feels that God is calling her into full-time Christian service. She expects the Lord will also provide her with a companion to share her life and ministry, but Emily does not want to marry any of the available young men. She squares her shoulders and decides she will accept the task of opening a new church in a pioneer community–alone. When Emily arrives at her new assignment, she is disappointed to find the church building in disrepair. After many days of hard work fixing it up, she announces her first service and is once again disappointed, this time in the size of her congregation. Is her faith strong enough to stand against the local doubters and myriad challenges that will test her calling?

The book is really an introduction to spiritual disciplines. Amazon describes it this way:

40 Days with Jesus is an introduction to the spiritual disciplines/habits necessary to grow in intimacy with God. Habits such as Bible reading, prayer, evangelism, repentance, worship, and service. 

Many people bemoan that their spiritual lives seem dry and empty. It does not have to be this way. God has given us spiritual means – to find a way out of the desert into the waters of God’s grace. 

40 Days with Jesus, exists to answer such questions as: How does spiritual growth happen? What can hurt our spiritual growth? What practices has God given us to grow spiritually? How is intimacy with God possible? How can we love our neighbors? How can we make a difference in the world? Who is Jesus?

What could happen if we took 40 days to walk with Jesus by using the spiritual habits? What might we learn? What might change in us? 

Spiritual maturity is slow and a life long process.Take 40 days and discover the God who made you, loves you, died for you, and wants you to grow to be more like Him.

trip-lee-the-good-life-book-cover

SUPER DEAL – 51% OFF – ONLY $5.43

Trip Lee is better known as a Christian rap artist than he is as an author. This book may change all of that. In The Good Life, Lee disputes the notion that the good life is all about material things. Here is Amazon’s description of this book, which is garnering huge praise from the likes of Matt Chandler, Mark Dever, Kirk Franklin, Kevin DeYoung, Thabiti Anyabwile, and Lecrae.

Nicer car, bigger house, whatever your heart desires. Everybody wants to live The Good Life. But what happens when dreams become nightmares and the promise of freedom leads to a life of imprisonment? What happens when you discover that all that’s gold loses its glitter? Maybe the rich and famous aren’t living The Good Life. Maybe our dreams are rooted in lies. And maybe, just maybe those who have less really have more. What is The Good Life…really?

In this book, titled after his acclaimed fourth album, The Good Life, Christian rap artist and author, Trip Lee, unveils what the world, the flesh and the devil promote as the ultimate and most satisfying life. He then explains what The Good Life really is: a life within our reach and yet beyond anything this world has to offer. Imagine: The Good Life.

defying-gravity-how-survive-storms-pastoral-ministry-daniel-henderson-paperback-cover-art

SUPER DEAL – 87% OFF – ONLY $1.99

Daniel Henderson is one of my favorite pastors. For years, Henderson has been passionate about spiritual renewal, that is brought about when believers gather together in prayer. In 2010, Henderson published a practical book for pastors and church leaders entitled Defying Gravity: How to Survive the Storms of Pastoral Ministry.

This is how Amazon describes the book:

Satan is a strategic foe.  His darts and doubts are designed to undermine the power of truth.  He knows the importance of destroying the integrity and well-being of spiritual leaders in order to decimate the church of Jesus Christ.  Pastors and church leaders need to learn about how to prepare for and protect themselves so they can lead effectively and without “losing altitude”.  Defying Gravity makes leaders aware of the pitfalls of ministry and equips them with the tools to avoid these temptations and traps.

This book is the fruit of Daniel Henderson’s 25 years of pastoral ministry, mostly spent as the senior pastor of three churches.  It also reflects his very active ministry in the past 11 years as a speaker in pastors’ conferences and renewal events, which have given him many occasions for interaction with hurting pastors.  From those lessons learned he instructs on the nine gauges on the leadership instrument panel that you need to monitor to keep soaring no matter what storms come your way. The nine gauges he refers to are applied truth, spiritual intimacy, personal integrity, Biblical identity, genuine accountability, eternal significance, healthy family life, indispensable pain, and a captivating call.
