A Heartbeat AwayFREE TODAY – Harry Kraus’ book, A Heartbeat Awayis free today for Kindle.

When a brilliant surgeon undergoes a heart transplant, her life transforms as she begins experiencing memories of a murder she never witnessed.

Now she has a new heart. This life that was formerly controlled and predictable is now chaotic. Dr. Taylor had famously protected herself from love or commitment, but her walls are beginning to crumble.
And strangest of all, memories surface that will take her on a journey out of the operating room and into a murder investigation.

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.

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.

Super E-Book Deals for Sunday, January 27, 2013

Coming-Back-Stronger-Brees-Drew-EB9781414346885FREE TODAY – My first thought when I saw that Drew Brees’ book Coming Back Stronger was free today on Kindle was, “No way!” I love football and Brees’ compelling story is worth a read.

When a potentially career-ending shoulder injury left quarterback Drew Brees without a team—and facing the daunting task of having to learn to throw a football all over again—coaches around the NFL wondered, Will he ever come back? After Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, leaving more than 80 percent of the city underwater, many wondered, Will the city ever come back? And with their stadium transformed into a makeshift refugee camp, forcing the Saints to play their entire 2005 season on the road, people questioned, Will the Saints ever come back? It takes a special person to turn adversity into success and despair into hope—yet that is exactly what Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees has done—and with the weight of an entire city on his shoulders. Coming Back Stronger is the ultimate comeback story, not only of one of the NFL’s top quarterbacks, but also of a city and a team that many had all but given up on. Brees’s inspiring message of hope and encouragement proves that with enough faith, determination, and heart, you can overcome any obstacle life throws your way and not only come back, but come back stronger.

Amelia, a Christian who is blind, faces the prospect of living in a saloon with doubt and trepidation, and must rely on all her faith to make the new arrangement work.

As her time in Glory Gulch stretches on, old family secrets surface, and Amelia and her aunt are forced to become the family they always were but never knew.

When two lumber men vie for her attentions, her young, inexperienced heart is frayed, and she must rely on her aunt’s advice to try to make sense of it all. As Amelia faces danger, betrayal, and accusations, the only thing she can do is remain strong in her faith in God and trust him to work everything out. Can relationships be healed, hurts forgiven, and anger controlled because of the unwavering beliefs of one Christian refusing to yield under pressure? Or does this rough place get the better of Amelia and send her packing back to an empty life in which she no longer fits? Could she possibly find love the most unlikely place—a saloon?

The story of R.A. Dickey, baseball’s current NL Cy Young award winner, is nothing short of a miracle.

Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball has been called, The Glass Castle meets Ball Four as Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey weaves searing honesty and baseball insight in this memoir about his unlikely journey to the big leagues.

An English Lit major at the University of Tennessee, Dickey is as articulate and thoughtful as any professional athlete in any sport-and proves it page after page, as he provides fresh and honest insight into baseball and a career unlike any other. Fourteen years ago, Dickey was a heralded No. 1 draft choice of the Texas Rangers, only to have an $810,000 signing bonus, and his lifelong dream, ripped away by an X- ray-and the discovery that he did not have an ulna collateral ligament in his right elbow. Five years ago, he gave up a record six home runs in three innings to the Detroit Tigers-and was effectively consigned to the baseball scrap heap.

Sustained by his profound Christian faith, the love of his wife and children, and a relentless quest for self-awareness and authenticity, the immensely likable Dickey details his transformation from a reckless, risk-taking loner to a grounded, life- affirming big leaguer. He emerged as one of the premier pitchers in the National League in 2010-and the knuckleballing embodiment of the wonders that perseverance and human wisdom can produce. Dickey views his story as one of redemption. Readers will come to see it as something more-a uniquely American story of beating back demons, listening to your heart, and overcoming extraordinary odds.

This is one the baseball fans in your life will appreciate.

Agnes Sparrow prays and when Agnes prays things happen, including major miracles of the cancer, ulcer-healing variety along with various minor miracles not the least of which is the recovery of lost objects and a prize-winning pumpkin.

Why It’s Hard To Love Jesus takes a close look at the story in Luke 7 describing Simon the Pharisee and a sinful woman who anoints Jesus with expensive oil. When we’re confronted with the reality of Jesus, do we remain indifferent and religious like Simon the Pharisee or do we fall at His feet in adoring worship like the woman who had been forgiven much? Joseph Stowell challenges Christians to honestly probe the answer to this penetrating question.

Blessed self forgetfulnessTim Keller’s, The Freedom of Self Forgetfulness, is a short book about finding true Christian joy.

‘What are the marks of a supernaturally changed heart?’

This is one of the questions the Apostle Paul addresses as he writes to the church in Corinth. He’s not after some superficial outward tinkering, but instead a deep–rooted, life–altering change that takes place on the inside. In an age where pleasing people, puffing up your ego and building your résumé are seen as the methods to ‘make it’, the Apostle Paul calls us to find true rest in blessed self–forgetfulness.

In this short and punchy book, best–selling author Timothy Keller, shows that gospel–humility means we can stop connecting every experience, every conversation with ourselves and can thus be free from self–condemnation. A truly gospel–humble person is not a self–hating person or a self–loving person, but a self–forgetful person.

This freedom can be yours…

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.

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?

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.
