Free Stuff Fridays (Banner of Truth Edition)

This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by Banner of Truth. They are offering up 5 prize packages, each of which contains 3 of their new books. All 5 winners will receive these books:

Jewels from NewtonJewels from John Newton: Daily Readings from the Works of John Newton. ‘In few writers are Christian doctrine, experience and practice more happily balanced than in the author of these letters, and few write with more simplicity, piety and force.’ (C.H. Spurgeon). This volume of daily devotional readings, is largely drawn from Newton’s prolific correspondence, and covers a wide variety of topics related to the Christian’s life and experience. Although written more than two hundred years ago, it remains as relevant and edifying as ever.

Every Promise of Your Word: The Gospel According to Joshua, by Rhett Dodson. ‘The book of Joshua is a promise of hope and a call to repentance that the church needs to hear. With faithful interpretation, holy imagination, skillful illustration, and spiritual illumination, Dodson opens up the biblical text so that we see not just ancient Israel, but ourselves and the Lord Jesus. This book is an ideal companion for personal devotion or family worship’ (Joel Beeke).

Sad DepartureA Sad Departure: Why We Could Not Stay in the Church of Scotland, by David Randall. ‘Every Pastor should read this book’ (Al Mohler). ‘David Randall has written a lucid manifesto explaining why he and others are leaving the Church of Scotland now. The arguments he proffers for departure from this historic church stand equally true and compelling for any believer or pastor in any denomination which has officially allowed a departure from the Word of God’ (John MacArthur). ‘A Sad Departure tells a dark story, almost novelesque in character. A church’s Theological Commission reaches a unanimous conclusion on the teaching on marriage given in its ultimate authority, the Bible. But then its General Assembly acts in a way that ignores, demeans, and rejects that teaching. Thus behind these sad departures lies the prior and much sadder departure of the Kirk from its sacred constitution. This is a thoughtful, honest and solemnising book written out of a deep personal and pastoral concern for the cause of the gospel’ (Sinclair Ferguson).

    Cognitive Decline and Common Faults

    When visiting a far-off church, I met a man who, with sadness, told me about his father’s final sermon. A lifelong pastor and preacher, his father had withdrawn from full-time ministry several years prior, but still preached from time to time.

    The Three Greatest Enemies of Marriage

    Marriage brings us many joys. But since it exists in this world and not some other, it also brings its share of sorrows. It is like everything else in that way—there are times we marvel at its beauties and times we lament its difficulties. A divine gift that was meant to be only good is…
