Free Stuff Fridays

This week’s Free Stuff is sponsored by our good friends Christian Focus. They are offering 5 prize packages this week. Each of the 5 winners will receive all of the following books:

Pleased To DwellPleased to Dwell- A Biblical Introduction to the Incarnation by Peter Mead. At the centre of heaven is Christ, lovingly adored as the forever Lord of all. At the centre of Christmas is Christ, frail and cradled in the tender arms of a young mother. How can the two be put together? Heavenly glory and human frailty? That is the real wonder of Christmas. Pleased to Dwell is an energetic biblical introduction to Christmas. It is an invitation to ponder the Incarnation, and a God who was please to dwell with us.

“This book is perfect food for the heart for all of us who long for a richer understanding of the birth of The King!”

—Joseph M. Stowell (President, Cornerstone University, Grand Rapids, Michigan)

The Christmas Story – The Bible Version by Carine Mackenzie. In the corner of a stable where the animals usually eat there is a baby in a blanket lying in a box. This baby is the Son of God who has been sent to save.

In this book you will find out who needs saving and how it is that this special Child will do it.

“What parent, Sunday School teacher or Pastor would not want a Christ-centered, Biblically faithful and understandable story written for children that is also well illustrated and well written? Now we have one.”

Harry L. Reeder (Pastor of Preaching & Leadership, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama)

BackchatBackchat – Answering Christianity’s Critics by Chris Sinkinson You wish you had an answer, now you do. Sinkinson tackles dodgy science and Christian urban myths whilst reminding us that Christians are not called to win arguments but hearts. Darwin’s death bed conversion – truth or myth? Is God a moral monster? Is this really the God particle? Is the Bible an immoral book? Who was Jesus?

“When Richard Dawkins came on my radio show, I immediately knew who I wanted him to debate it with… Sinkinson, I can think of none better to provide it.”

Justin Brierley (Journalist and host of Premier Radio ‘Unbelievable’ Show)

New Atheism – A Survival Guide by Graham Veale. This summary of the arguments that dominate the current scene of thought unravels the philosophies behind modern popular and academic culture. Veale, a high school teacher, uses these arguments to motivate readers to stop and to think about their own direction and purpose, and ultimately, through consideration of the crucial questions, to find the vital answers.

“This is a great wee book which is an excellent introduction to and summary of, the current controversy surrounding the New Atheism… Highly recommended!”

David Robertson (Pastor, St Peter’s Free Church of Scotland, Dundee & author of Magnificent Obsession and The Dawkins Letters)

STSystematic Theology Volume 1 – Grounded in Holy Scripture and Understood in Light of the Church by Douglas F. Kelly. “I have written this first volume, thinking of my heritage as both Reformed and Catholic; gladly appropriating crucial insights of the whole people of God over the last two thousand years – Eastern Orthodox, Western Catholic, and Reformation Protestant – as they sought to live out the foundational truths of the inspired Word of God.” Douglas F. Kelly

“Douglas F. Kelly is one of the English-speaking world’s leading Reformed theologians. Here we begin to enjoy the fruits of his labors. What a feast it is.”

Ligon Duncan (Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary)

Systematic Theology Volume 2 – The Beauty of Christ – a Trinitarian Vision by Douglas F. Kelly. Douglas F. Kelly returns to the writings of saints and scholars to exemplify the beauty and the wonder of Christ, the Son of God, in this highly-anticipated second volume of systematic theology. Kelly delves through a treasure trove of Patristics, Scholastics, Reformers, Puritans, and Moderns to recover an Augustinian reverence for the beauty of Christ, to illustrate that the Father and the Spirit are most fully revealed through Him, and to make clear that His coming is the restoration of the universe.

“A joy to witness… a model to which others should aspire.”

(Carl R. Trueman ~ Paul Woolley Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
