Free Stuff Fridays

Giveaways / Free Stuff Fridays Collection cover image

This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by Banner of Truth. They are giving away a selection of books that I think will be of interest to you. There will be five winners this week, and each of the winners will receive these three books:

CatechizingCatechizing Our Children: The Whys and Hows of Teaching the Shorter Catechism Today, by Terry Johnson (paperback, 80 pages). Communicating the faith to children is one of the great responsibilities of Christian parents. In this book, Terry Johnson, a father as well as a pastor, shows how the Shorter Catechism can be of great help to parents facing this vital task. Concise, brief, informative, and above all practical, this book will be a great help and a most useful guide to parents and grandparents, pastors and Sunday-school teachers.

The AtonementThe Atonement: In its Relations to the Covenant, the Priesthood, the Intercession of Our Lord, by Hugh Martin (Clothbound, 248 pages). ‘…it is wonderful medicine for the Christian mind and will open up new veins of evangelical truth for preachers to mine. Perhaps for some it will provide even entirely new land on which to graze. In today’s context it is scarcely possible to over-estimate how valuable [Hugh Martin’s] work is.’ – John & Sinclair Ferguson. The Atonement is the most significant contribution to the Christian church by Hugh Martin, an author of extraordinary penetration and great power. At a time when the preaching of the cross has been displaced from many pulpits by talk about man, and where experience-orientated theology has come to reign, Martin’s exposition of the atonement is a book that demands attention

This God Our GodThis God Our God: Creator, Judge, Saviour, by Archibald G. Brown (paperback, 264 pages). ‘Our God is a God of might, and a God of right, and a God of mercy, and a God of truth. On these four attributes, as on four massive blocks of granite, does the soul venture safely to build her eternal hopes.’ — Archibald G. Brown. Preached during the course of his long ministry in London, these sermons were heard by thousands and then read avidly by multitudes who prized his faithful presentation of the ‘gospel of the grace of God’.

Giveaway Rules: You may enter one time. 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.

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager.

  • Not a Life of Ease

    It’s Not a Life of Ease
