Free Stuff Fridays (Nelson Books)

This week Free Stuff Friday is sponsored by Nelson Books. They are giving away ten copies of Misled: 7 Lies That Distort the Gospel (and How You Can Discern the Truth) by Allen Parr

ABOUT MISLED:

The gospel is under attack today–not only from outside cultural forces but also from within the church. In Misled, popular YouTuber and Bible teacher Allen Parr equips readers to identify and withstand seven of the most common false teachings that undermine the gospel and lead many well-meaning Christians astray.

For an anxious and weary world, the gospel of Jesus Christ is the one true source of deep peace and lasting joy. But today, many supposedly Christian teachers are spreading ideas that amount to what Paul called “another gospel.”

The result? A generation of believers confused about what God really says, what he offers, and what he wants for his children. From the heavy burden of legalism to an overemphasis on prosperity or spiritual gifts to warped understandings of grace, every false teaching has two things in common: they all use half-truths that look and sound biblical (making them very difficult to identify) and they all harm and discourage those who are trying to follow the way of Jesus.

In Misled, Allen Parr weaves together stories from his own spiritual journey and the lives of those he’s ministered to show the painful consequences of following false teachings and to provide clear explanations of what the Bible really teaches about the gospel. Readers will

  • learn about seven of the most misleading and harmful messages that run rampant within the church today;
  • be equipped to identify not only “wolves in shepherd’s clothing” who peddle counterfeit gospels, but also well-intentioned teachers whose half-truths are no less harmful to the church; and
  • discover how they can find the freedom, peace, and joy that only comes from embracing the gospel in all its purity and simplicity.

With the same balanced, Bible-based approach that has made Parr’s YouTube channel a go-to resource, Misled offers clarity and hope for anyone who has felt discouraged or confused in their spiritual journey—and invites readers to find everything they’ve been searching for in the true gospel.
