Free Stuff Fridays (MasterLectures)

Free Stuff Fridays

This week’s Free Stuff Friday is sponsored by MasterLectures, the video streaming platform from Zondervan Academic, who also sponsored the blog this week.

They are giving away five copies of Faith Alone: The Doctrine of Justification, by Thomas R. Schreiner. In this book, Dr. Schreiner looks at the historical and biblical roots of the doctrine of justification. He summarizes the history of the doctrine, looking at the early church and the writings of several of the Reformers. Then, he turns his attention to the Scriptures and walks you through an examination of the key texts in the Old and New Testament.

I also want to remind you that Tom Schreiner and I are hosting a 5-week study of the book of Galatians starting Monday. We’ll be following Dr. Schreiner’s Galatians videos on Zondervan’s MasterLectures platform and discussing the videos each week in a private Facebook group. This will be a unique chance to go deep into Galatians together with a well-known New Testament scholar.

Here’s how to join the Galatians study with Tom Schreiner:

  1. Sign up for the Galatians video course through your MasterLectures account (and be sure to use the code TIMCHALLIES to get the discounted rate).
  2. Then, request to join the private Facebook group.

We’ll begin our study this coming Monday, May 11, so you still have a few more days to sign up. I hope you’ll join us.

  • Unite in Prayer with Persecuted Believers

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…

  • Tell Me

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
