In other deals, Logos has Brevard Childs’ commentary on Isaiah as their free book of the month while Christian Audio is giving away Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand.

Journey – Here’s the best blog-related news I’ve heard in a while: Tim Keesee has begun a blog. You’ll want to bookmark it, I’m sure. Oh, and he’s got a new episode of Dispatches From the Front coming soon. Here’s the trailer.

An Inheritance of Tears – Here’s a great review of the latest book from Cruciform Press: Inheritance of Tears: Trusting the Lord When Death Visits the Womb.

Through the Eyes of Spurgeon – You can watch this full feature-length documentary for free on YouTube.

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian
