A Country LifeFREE TODAY – Arthur Elfstrom’s beautiful book, A Country Life: A Collection of Poems, is free today-Wednesday 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.

Waking UpFREE TODAY – Ted Dekker’s, Waking Up: How I Found My Faith by Losing It, is free today for Kindle.

Waking up is a vulnerable 27-page expose of the personal journey the author and most who call themselves Christian find themselves on in this life. A journey full of inconsistencies that are unsustainable and eventually lead to a fractured worldview. And yet that same journey can lead to a radical rediscovery of love, peace and identity in a world blurred by confusion, unworthiness and anxiety.

“If there is one elephant in the room among most of us who call ourselves Christian, it is that what we think and say we believe and what we actually experience are all too often two, radically different realities,” the author writes. “Ironically, we ourselves are often the last to see this disparity.”

We claim to be saved in the next life, but can we find peace in the storms that rise up against us in this life? The answer is an unequivocal yes. But that yes means looking at ourselves and the world around us differently which leads to a new way of being in the world. So take a look. See what millions of Christians are now seeing.

This short booklet is an invitation for all who can relate with the author’s writing to take the journey themselves through A.D 33, a radical novel of discovery, and The Forgotten Way Meditations, 21 short reflections on life that will change the way you see yourself and the world.

The Centurion's WifeFREE TODAY – Davis Bunn and Janette Oke’s book, The Centurion’s Wifeis free today for Kindle.

Janette Oke has dreamed for years of retelling a story in a biblical time frame from a female protagonist’s perspective, and Davis Bunn is elated to be working with her again on this sweeping saga of the dramatic events surrounding the birth of Christianity…and the very personal story of Leah, a young Jewess of mixed heritage trapped in a vortex of competing political agendas and private trauma.

Caught up in the maelstrom following the death of an obscure rabbi in the Roman backwater of first-century Palestine, Leah finds herself also engulfed in her own turmoil–facing the prospect of an arranged marriage to a Roman soldier, Alban, who seems to care for nothing but his own ambitions. Head of the garrison near Galilee, he has been assigned by Palestine’s governor to ferret out the truth behind rumors of a political execution gone awry. Leah’s mistress, the governor’s wife, secretly commissions Leah also to discover what really has become of this man whose death–and missing body–is causing such furor.

This epic drama is threaded with the tale of an unlikely romance and framed with dangers and betrayals from unexpected sources. At its core, The Centurion’s Wife unfolds the testing of loyalties–between two young people whose inner searchings they cannot express, between their irreconcilable heritages, and ultimately between their humanity and the Divine they yearn to encounter.

The Hidden FlameBOOK TWO – THE HIDDEN FLAME

In first-century Judea, the followers of the Way have burgeoned into a vibrant, growing community that cannot be ignored. Jerusalem is in turmoil as its religious leaders on one side, and their Roman rulers on the other, conspire to stamp out the fledgling Church. And Abigail, who thought she had finally found home and safety, is caught between the opposing forces.

Two suitors desire the lovely Abigail’s hand in marriage. One, a successful Hebrew merchant and widower with important connections among the Sanhedrin, is looking for a mother for his children. The Roman soldier Linux is fascinated by her winsome charm and possibly could offer the sanctuary–maybe even the love–or which she yearns. But her heart has been captured by neither of these. Will her faith and courage survive a heartbreak beyond comprehension as the followers face a gathering storm of persecution they never could have foreseen?

A glimmer of hope beckons Abigail forward….

The Damascus WayTHE DAMASCUS WAY

Julia has everything money can buy…except for acceptance by either the Gentiles or the Jews. Her Greek father already has a wife and family, leaving Julia and her Hebrew mother second-class citizens. But when they are introduced to followers of the Way, they become part of that community of believers.

Abigail’s brother, Jacob, now a young man, is attempting to discover his own place as a Christian. He is concerned that being more serious about his faith means trading away the exhilaration of his current profession as a caravan guard. Hired by Julia’s father to protect the wealthy merchant’s caravans on the secretive “Frankincense Trail”–undercover transport of this highly valuable commodity–Jacob also passes letters and messages between various communities of believers. He is alarmed to find out that Julia, hardly more than a girl, is also a messenger. Can their immediate mistrust be put aside to finally bring their hearts together?

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.

Goodness & MercyFREE TODAY – Patti Hill’s, Goodness & Mercyis free today for Kindle.

Mercy is heartache comforted, a truth whispered, a healing granted. And sometimes, mercy comes at the worst possible moment. At least, Lucy thinks so.

After the death of her parents, sixteen-year-old Lucy Richter struggles to keep a promise to her father–to save what remains of her family. Lucy fails tragically but won’t allow her dwindling family to disappear. She shanghais her twin siblings, Goody and Mercy, from a Wisconsin orphanage to a Colorado peach ranch and an aunt who is a less-than-welcoming stranger. Lucy is prepared to keep the peace with her aunt, but will her sister’s gifts draw unwanted attention and crush Lucy’s dream of family?

And World War II rages on. Absent men strain the running of Honey Sweet Ranch and force alliances of the most intriguing and unlikely kind, including German POWs. Within these relationships, Lucy is given the chance to discover an unfamiliar and healing faith.

With her defining style, Patti Hill tells a story of love and loss with one of America’s darkest times as a backdrop. Hill’s characters resonate, and her descriptions draw the reader into a drama that is perfectly paced and infused with a wondrous hope.

“…Goodness & Mercy is one of the most startlingly beautiful novels I’ve ever read…Poignant and real, this book touches a deep chord in the human experience.” Traci DePree, author of the “Lake Emily” series

Be HopefulFREE TODAY – Any other Warren Wiersbe fans out there? His “Be” series was one of the greatest gifts that I received as a young pastor. Today, Warren’s book, Be Hopeful: How to Make the Best of Times Out of Your Worst of Timesa commentary on 1 Peter, is free today for Kindle.

In Scripture, hope means the promise of salvation for those who have accepted God and His Son’s death and resurrection.

Christians who possess this hope and live as though then possess it will learn godly submission, holy living, and harmony with other believers. These qualities will prepare them for what Peter pains in his epistle as inevitable—suffering and persecution. Though Peter is writing to warn a people who would soon be under the tyranny of a heathen Roman emperor, some level of suffering will always be part of the believers’ journey. A time is soon coming when living the “comfortable” Christian life will be far more costly than the life willing to give up all.

After the FallFREE TODAY – Craig DeMartino’s, After the Fallis free today for Kindle.

Craig DeMartino never thought this would happen to him. He was 100 feet up a cliff in Rocky Mountain National Park when—with one step—his 13 years of rock climbing experience and 15 pounds of gear plummeted with him to the ground. Expert climbers say that if you fall 10 feet you have a 10% chance of dying, a 20% chance at 20 feet, 30% at 30, and so on. Craig fell 100 feet. By basic calculation, Craig should not be alive today. But he is.

In the months that followed, the pain, the subsequent partial leg amputation, the media attention, and the knowledge that his body was broken challenged Craig on a daily basis. Scarier still was the realization that his faith was broken too. Slowly, as his physical body recovered, Craig’s emotional and spiritual body strengthened as well. In prayer, Craig learned to take God out of a box and allow His plan and promise to be revealed. Looking back, the doctors and nurses played a big role in Craig’s recovery, but it was a series of miracles that saved his life.

For anyone who has been knocked down or run over by life, After the Fall not only offers an engaging read but also provides a clear message of hope: sometimes the greatest gift we can receive isn’t just healing, but the power to endure.

The Narrow Path

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.

andSUPER DEAL – SAVE 84% – ONLY $2.99

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.
