Free Stuff Fridays

Giveaways / Free Stuff Fridays Collection cover image

This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by Christian Focus. They are offering 5 prize packages this week, which means there will be 5 winners. Each of those winners will receive these books:

  • Burning HeartsBurning Hearts: Preaching to the Affections by Josh Moody and Robin Weekes. Affection is often a neglected theme in our generation of Bible believing Christians. It has not always been so. Previous generations thought a great deal about the centrality of the heart in the Christian life and the need to preach to it. This book will prove a valuable resource as we learn about the place of the affections in our walk with Christ and in preaching Him to ourselves and others. “For some, this little book will be a healthy reminder; for others, it will revolutionize their preaching.” D. A. Carson
  • BedAnd So to Bed…: A Biblical View of Sleep by Adrian Reynold. Sleep is part of our created humanity, a good gift from God to be treasured and enjoyed; an earthly picture of a spiritual reality. In this reflection on sleep, Reynolds reflects on what the Bible has to say about sleep and rest, and how that can impact not only your night but your life. He includes his suggestions for turning off and enjoying rest. “Jesus slept. And so should we. But how? This book will send you to sleep – in a good way… eminently practical advice for the committed sleepers.” Josh Moody
  • Teaching 2 TimothyTeaching 2 Timothy: From Text to Message by Jonathan Griffiths. Paul’s second letter to Timothy is a letter written from one pastor to another, and it is designed to train, equip and encourage Timothy for the work of ministry. This volume is not an academic study of 2 Timothy, but rather an accessible and easily navigable teaching resource which will aid those examining 2 Timothy both to teach and for their own study.
  • TeachingTeaching 1 & 2 Thessalonians: From Text to Message by Angus MacLeay. In a day when church planting is back in fashion, here is Paul speaking to a newly planted fellowship. In a day when Christians in the West are finding themselves under growing pressure from the surrounding culture, here is Paul encouraging a church facing strong opposition. This book enables the leader to apply practical theology to specific situations that still affect the church today.

    It’s Easier to Tear Down than Build Up

    In my travels, I encountered a man whose work is demolition. When buildings are old and decrepit, or even when they just need to be removed to make way for others, his job is to destroy them and haul them away. New or old, big or small, plain or fancy—it makes no difference to him.…
