The fine folks at Christianaudio.com have made the classic Religious Affections by Jonathan Edwards their free book of the month. So, if you’ve never read it before get over there and download it today. Here is their description of the book:
The Religious Affections Quite possibly one of the most important books ever written by America’s greatest theologian. Among the questions asked is, “What is the nature of true religion?” \”What are the signs of a true revival?\” and \”How is the heart changed?\” Edwards used his pulpit and his leadership of the Great Awakening to pen one of the most challenging and inquisitive books ever written.

For this week only, in recognition of Easter, the fine folks at Ligonier Ministries are giving away digital copies of R.C. Sproul’s the Truth of the Cross. It’s actually a book I am going to recommend on the next Basic Bible Podcast. Here’s the description:
In this book, Dr. R.C. Sproul surveys the great work accomplished by Jesus Christ through His crucifixion—the redemption of God’s people. Dr. Sproul considers the atonement from numerous angles and shows conclusively that the cross was absolutely necessary if anyone was to be saved.
Opening the Scriptures, Dr. Sproul shows that God Himself provided salvation by sending Jesus Christ to die on the cross, and the cross was always God’s intended method by which to bring salvation. The Truth of the Cross is an uncompromising reminder that the atonement of Christ is an absolutely essential doctrine of the Christian faith, one that should be studied and understood by all believers.

The fine folks at Crossway are once again offering a free book, this time by one of my favorite authors – Michael Horton. By the way, Dr. Horton has agreed to come on my podcast this month!
Here’s the amazon.com description of the book:
John Calvin, a man adored by some and maligned by others, stands as a legendary figure in Christian history. In Calvin on the Christian Life, professor Michael Horton offers us fresh insights into the Reformer’s personal piety and practical theology by allowing Calvin to speak in his own words.
Drawing not only from his Institutes and biblical commentaries, but also from lesser-known tracts, treatises, and letters, this book will deepen your understanding of Calvin’s theology and ministry by exploring the heart of his spiritual life: confident trust and unwavering joy in the sovereign grace of God.
Part of the Theologians on the Christian Life series.

The fine folks at Grace to You, for a limited time only, are giving away the Gospel According to Paul for free. This is not an e-book but a physical copy! This is one of the many reasons I appreciate the ministry of John MacArthur…
Here’s a description of the book:
John MacArthur’s best seller The Gospel According to Jesus shook the evangelical world. Why? It called the church to consider how it had lost sight of what it means to follow Christ—that it means yielding to Him as Lord. The follow-up book, The Gospel According to the Apostles, answered criticisms to the first book, showing that the concept of “Christ as Lord” was central to the gospel the apostles preached.
Now, John’s newest book, The Gospel According to Paul, takes what you know about the good news even further. No one did more than Paul to help people understand the gospel. This look at the gospel as Paul proclaimed it will ignite your heart with the truth of Jesus Christ crucified, buried, risen, and ascended—the most uplifting truth in the universe.

The fine folks at Ligonier Ministries and the Renewing Your Mind broadcast is offering R.C. Sproul’s Christmas teaching series, The Messiah is Born, as a free download for the next few days only.
Here’s a summary:
Two thousand years ago, the birth of a baby boy in the tiny city of Bethlehem changed the course of world history. However, though many people can recount the circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus, fewer understand the true significance of the birth of the Messiah. In this series, R.C. Sproul examines various themes that we must consider when we look at the first advent of Christ. Dr. Sproul discusses Mary’s role in the nativity and the necessity of Christ’s birth for our redemption, reminding us that the glory of God seen in the birth of Jesus will be seen again at His second coming.
