Free Stuff Fridays
April 29, 2011
This week’s sponsor of Free Stuff Fridays is CBD Reformed. This how CBD introduces their site: “In order to serve an important segment of our customers more fully, we have developed a more focused website with author, publisher, and product selections reflective of the topics, issues, and concerns of discerning readers from a reformed perspective. We intentionally feature new and classic titles you’re looking for, authors you appreciate, and viewpoints you value.”
They are offering up 5 of the following prize packs (5 winners will each receive all 3 books):
- Historical Theology: An Introduction to Christian Doctrine by Gregg Allison – Retail price $44.99
- A Reader’s Guide to Calvin’s Institutes by Anthony Lane – Retail Price $14.99
- Think by John Piper – retail $19.99
Allison’s Historical Theology is an interesting new book and one that will be in great demand, I’m sure. “Most historical theology texts follow Christian beliefs chronologically, discussing notable doctrinal developments for all areas of theology according to their historical appearance. And while this may be good history, it can make for confusing theology, with the classic theological loci scattered throughout various time periods, movements, and controversies. In Historical Theology, Gregg Allison offers students the opportunity to study the historical development of theology according to a topical-chronological arrangement, setting out the history of Christian doctrine one theological element at a time. Such an approach allows readers to concentrate on one tenet of Christianity and its formulation in the early church, through the Middle Ages, Reformation, and post-Reformation era, and into the modern period.”
In addition, CBD Reformed is offering a 4-day sale (April 29 – May 2) on the following three products:
- Forgotten God by Francis Chan – retail $14.99 / sale $8.99
- Do Hard Things by Alex & Brett Harris - retail $17.99 / sale $9.49
