Free Stuff Fridays (The Good Book Company)

This week’s Free Stuff Friday is sponsored by The Good Book Company, who also sponsored the blog this week. They have five packages of three new releases to give away. Those who do not win will receive an email with the option to download a free e-copy of Zeal Without Burnout by Christopher Ash.

Being the Bad Guys by Stephen McAlpine

The church used to be recognized as a force for good, but this is changing rapidly. Christians are now often seen as the bad guys, losing both respect and influence.

In our post-Christian culture, how do we offer the gospel to those around us who view it as not only wrong but possibly dangerous? And how do we ensure that the secular worldview does not entice us away with its constant barrage of messages about self-determinism?

Author Stephen McAlpine offers an analysis of how our culture ended up this way, explains key points of tension between biblical Christianity and secular culture, and suggests some ways forward for a church that is seen as the bad guy.

An Ocean of Grace by Tim Chester

An inspiring collection of daily devotions and prayers from great Christian writers of the past, including Augustine, Charles Spurgeon, John Bunyan, Catherine Parr, and Martin Luther.

The heart-warming words of these saints of old exalt the grace and glory of Christ’s work, and will encourage and inspire readers as much today as they did when they were first written. Each daily reading has been selected, edited, and introduced by Tim Chester to make these treasures accessible to every reader.

Faithful Leaders by Rico Tice

“Well done, good and faithful servant.” Every ministry leader wants to hear these words when they meet their Lord. But what does successful ministry look like?

There are many books on leadership strategies and church structures, but this one looks at what matters most: the character and attitude of church leaders. In this short, punchy, challenging, and at times surprising book, Rico Tice draws on decades of experience in church leadership to call fellow pastors and others to define success biblically, fight their sin, lead themselves, and serve their churches.
