Free Stuff Fridays

This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by Shepherd Press, a name you know, I’m sure. Shepherd Press is giving away some great books this week. There will be 5 winners and each of the winners will receive each of the following:

  • Assurance DVDCrucifying Morality: The Gospel of the Beatitudes by R.W. Glenn. “Crucifying Morality walks through Matthew 5:1-12, where Jesus doesn’t prescribe what ought to be in order to experience God’s grace, but describes what is true of people who understand the grace of God.”
  • Assurance: Know You Are Saved DVD by R.W. Glenn, Brian Hedges & Todd Friel. “If you fear that you might not actually be a Christian, join Todd Friel and Pastors RW Glenn and Brian Hedges as they gently lead you through the process of examining yourself to see if you are in the faith. Your Christian walk should be joy filled, not worry laden. Working through this issue can be challenging, but the process is worth the effort as you will know for certain that you are His child.”
  • Christ Formed in You: The Power of the Gospel for Personal Change by Brian G. Hedges. “Christ Formed in You is a book about spiritual formation, the “grace-driven developmental process in which the soul grows in conformity to the image of Christ.” The acid test of all spiritual formation is this: Are you becoming more like Jesus? Are the contours of your character being shaped by his image, formed in his likeness?”
  • Active Spirituality: Grace and Effort in the Christian Life by Brian G. Hedges. “In Active Spirituality, Brian Hedges allows us to read someone else’s mail — a series of warm pastoral letters, written to a young Christian, about the paradox of grace and effort in the life of faith. The wisdom in the letters makes clear that it is both: trying and trusting, running and resting, dependence on grace and exerting disciplined effort. This balance is not about getting my doctrine right, but is key to living a healthy Christian life.”
