Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays

I got busy today and forgot all about this week’s Free Stuff Fridays. Thankfully I remembered with enough time to launch it before day’s end. This week’s sponsor is Ligonier Ministries and they are offering a prize fitting for this, the 500th anniversary of John Calvin’s birth. Five winners will each receive a Reformation Trust John Calvin Book Set. This includes three great hardcover books: Living for God’s Glory by Joel Beeke, John Calvin: A Heart for Devotion, Doctrine, and Doxology edited by Burk Parsons, and The Expository Genius of John Calvin by Steven Lawson.

Reformation Trust

I suspect Living for God’s Glory is the one that will most interest most of this site’s readers. “In this comprehensive survey of Reformed Christianity, Dr. Beeke and eight fellow contributors offer twenty eight chapters that trace the history of Calvinism; explore its key doctrinal tenets, such as the so-called five points of Calvinism and the solas of the Protestant Reformation; reveal how Calvinists have sought to live in devotion to God; and survey Calvinism’s influence in the church and in the world at large. In the end, the book asserts that the overriding goal of Calvinism is the glory of God. Saturated with Scripture citations and sprinkled with quotations from wise giants of church history, this book presents Calvinism in a winsome and wondrous fashion.”

Be sure to visit Ligonier’s blog this month for a lot more Calvin-related articles and specials.
