Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays
This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by Evangelical Press and they’ve got a pretty good collection of books to give away. They are offering 5 prize packages, each of which will consist of 6 books!

Bitesize BiographiesBitesize Biographies: This growing series from EP Books covers a wide range of Christian history. There is a volume on John Chrysostom (c347-407AD) right up to Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Francis Schaeffer. John Newton and Renee of France (a correspondent of Calvin and a woman largely alone in the troubled Reformation period) are the latest additions to the series. Winners will receive Renee of France by Simonetta Carr, Francis Schaeffer by Mostyn Roberts and John Newton by John Crotts.

How Sermons WorkHow Sermons Work & How to Evaluate Sermons: David Murray and Joel Beeke have written two short but invaluable books that guide the preacher from the nuts and bolts of sermon preparation through to understanding how a sermon should be rightly assessed. Any preacher who has struggled to find a text and then, having preached, been on the emotional rollercoaster from elation to bitter disappointment will find help in these books. Winners will receive both of these books.

Freeing Tangled HeartsFreeing Tangled Hearts: Finally, winners will also receive this brand new volume from Dolores Kimball. “Are you sometimes left confused by the conflicting array of feelings you experience as a woman? Do you let your heart rule your head? In this book Dolores Kimball takes an honest look at our lives as women and urges us not to allow our confusion, our tangled hearts, to rule our lives, but to cast ourselves on the Savior, who alone can change our hearts forever.”

Giveaway Rules: As soon as the winners have been chosen, all names and addresses will be immediately and permanently erased. Winners will be notified by email. The giveaway closes Saturday at noon.
