This week’s Free Stuff Friday is sponsored by Reformation Heritage Books. They have 5 packages to give away, which means 5 winners will each receive the following titles:
Follow Me is an illustrated book of Bible stories for young children. These stories tell the eternal message of the Bible, highlighting the scarlet thread of God’s redemptive history. In the Old Testament, we are pointed to the Lord Jesus as we see how much we need Him and how God promised to save the world through Him. In the New Testament, we learn that Jesus came to earth and increasingly manifested His kingdom by His words and deeds—a kingdom that will never end.
“Precisely what many parents are looking for. This will become the favorite Bible storybook for many children and in many families.”
—Joel R. Beeke
Joyless. Severe. Fanatical. “Haunted by the fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.” That’s the Puritan reputation. But to what extent is that reputation deserved? Drawing on the latest research, and featuring interviews with some of the most celebrated scholars in the field, this beautiful and atmospheric new documentary takes us from the birth of Puritanism all the way through to its influence in the present day.
Feature documentary, thirty-five video lessons, an introductory book, a workbook, and much more.
“The Puritans, as a body, have done more to elevate the national character than any class of Englishmen that ever lived. Ardent lovers of civil liberty, and ready to die in its defense—mighty at the council board, and no less mighty in the battlefield—feared abroad throughout Europe, and invincible at home while united—great with their pens, and no less great with their swords—fearing God very much, and fearing men very little—they were a generation of men who have never received from their country the honor that they deserve.”
–J.C. Ryle (introduction to Thomas Manton’s Works, 2:xi)
“I do think the film would be great for a family to have in their library, but it’s a necessity for every church to have it in their library as well.”
In Laughing at the Days to Come, Tessa Thompson shares a poignant story of physical suffering and her journey to not only understand God’s hand at work in it but to face the future with laughter. This book is gospel centered and hope-filled. Page after page, the author directs our focus to Christ and his work for us. We all face suffering in this fallen world, but we are not without hope. In Laughing at the Days to Come, readers are equipped to face their own stories of suffering with joy because of our present and future hope in Christ.
Tessa Thompson was fifteen years old when she was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease that took away her hearing and would eventually cause chronic pain and other health complications. Faced with a future of uncertainty, she encountered Proverbs: 31:25: “Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.” The godly woman of Proverbs 31 had something Tessa lacked- a vision for life that allowed her to laugh at the future. Tessa recognized she needed this laughter in order to endure lifelong suffering in a way that honored God. In this warmly personal account, Tessa insightfully considers what she calls the Christian’s “peculiar perspective on suffering” and shows you how the hope of God’s Word will enable you to laugh at the days to come even in the midst of tears and suffering.
“A remarkable book by a remarkable woman with a remarkable God.”
With its identity politics, numerous gender identity options, “selfies,” and “you-do-you” mentality, society emphasizes individualism, but it seems like people are having a harder time than ever figuring out who they are. The problem is, they are looking for their identity in the wrong places. Are you seeking your identity in relationships, a career, family, race, gender expression, or other circumstances—and feeling dissatisfied? Then this book is for you. Author Jonathan Landry Cruse offers a fresh, sometimes witty, truly radical, freeing answer to the important question of who you are and helps you understand what the Bible has to say about everything you need for a lasting, fulfilling identity that is found outside of you and in Christ.
“When you forget who you are in Christ, you quit seeking and celebrating what belongs to you in Christ. This book is a welcome cure for the identity amnesia that wreaks havoc on the lives of many Christians and weakens the mission of the church. Read it carefully and then go live its message with hope, courage, and joy.”
B. B. Warfield lived at a time when many people—even those who considered themselves Christians—were questioning the authority of God’s Word. For centuries most people in Europe and North America had taken for granted that the Bible was the word of God, but in Warfield’s lifetime, they were wondering whether it could still be trusted. Warfield was confident that the Bible could be trusted, and as a professor of theology at Princeton Seminary, he devoted his life to teaching and writing about its authority and other important issues of theology. In this biography, Simonetta Carr introduces children to one of America’s greatest Reformed theologians whose timeless writings address challenges to the truths of God’s Word today.
“Warfield was a champion of the faith whose legacy deserves to be kept alive. I am grateful that at last, thanks to Simonetta Carr, our children will become acquainted with him also!”
