Free Stuff Fridays (Christian Focus Edition)

This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is packed full of books from Christian Focus Publications, a publisher you know well, I am sure. There will be 5 winners this week, and each of those winners will receive the following package of books.

HeldHeld in Honor: Wisdom for Your Marriage from Voices of the Past by Robert L. Plummer, Matthew D. Haste “Are you ever disappointed in your spouse? Do you fight? Do you disagree about money, sex, or in-laws? What if the very struggles you are facing were addressed by thoughtful Christians hundreds of years ago? In Held in Honor, you will find 50 devotional reflections on marriage carefully selected from 2,000 years of church history. Alongside each inspiring historical quote is a brief introduction to the person quoted and an accompanying biblical reflection.”

Helopoulos A Neglected Grace: Family Worship in the Christian Home by Jason Helopoulos. “Pastor Jason Helopoulos calls parents and church leaders to reclaim the practice of family worship. This indispensable means of grace directs our children to seek Christ daily, preparing them to go out into the world as fully functioning Christian adults, who love Christ and see all of life in relation to Him.” Kevin DeYoung says, “I know first-hand that he writes as one who takes seriously all the challenges and all the opportunities fleshed out in this excellent book. The ‘neglected grace’ of family worship is not neglected in his home.”

Motyer Isaiah by the Day: A New Devotional Translation by Alec Motyer. “These daily devotionals are birthed from a lifetime of study on the prophecy of Isaiah. Day by day you will be provided with passages from Isaiah and an opportunity to explore the passage further. Take time to acquaint yourself with these passages from God’s Word and treasure them in your heart. Also coming soon from Alec Motyer is Psalms by the Day (January 2016)

18 words18 Words: The Most Important Words you will Ever Know by J. I. Packer. “If the modern world can be characterised by one thing it is probably the enormous increase in the number of words around – but that increase has also been accompanied by a seemingly corresponding decrease in understanding. J. I. Packer is a master wordsmith. He is also gifted with the ability of showing where truth lies in complicated reasoning. These skills combine to make 18 Words a fascinating read – and a life-changing one.”

one thingOne Thing: Developing a Passion for the Beauty of God by Sam Storms. We were made to glorify God and enjoy him forever. Nothing is more important than understanding this truth. This inspiring work helps us see that beauty has the power to convince the inquiring mind of truth. The soul’s contact with God’s beauty elicits love and forges in us a new affection that no earthly power can overcome. Enjoying God in the revelation of his beauty is the solution to our struggle with sin, the catalyst for substantive and lasting change and is the soul’s satisfaction, with which no rival pleasure can hope to compete.”

  • The Kindness of God

    God’s Goodness in a Cruel World

    There is much to love and appreciate about our God, much for which we ought to give him praise and thanks. One of the attributes we may consider too seldom is his goodness, and as an aspect or component of his goodness, his kindness. And that is the subject of
