nearly FREE EBOOK FRIDAY (E.M. Bounds)

Bounds Quote (1)


I made a goal at the beginning of 2015 to make prayer a more consistent part of my life (Training Plans).  I don’t feel like I have made much progress in that area.  Although, I did read the very insightful and challenging book on prayer, The Necessity of Prayer by E.M. Bounds as a result of my desire to improvement my prayer life.

Bounds Quote (3)

I enjoyed The Necessity of Prayer so much that I am currently reading Power through Prayer by E.M. Bounds.  I am more convinced than ever that the Church doesn’t need better methods; it needs better men.  The Church needs men, distinguished by Bible-reading and prayer, possessing the soldier element, to live the Christian life in love and kindness.

Bounds Quote (2)

I highly recommend E.M. Bounds.  You can get The Complete Works of E.M. Bounds for $0.99.  It is not free but fairly close.  I hope you enjoy his writing as much as I have.






nearly FREE EBOOK FRIDAY (William Wordsworth)

December 11, 2015

800px-Benjamin_Robert_Haydon_002The last time I read any Wordsworth was under the compulsion of High School literature.  As you might expect, my appreciation for the poet was rather lacking at the time.

However, I recently was reading a quote by W.R.  Inge where he referenced a poem by William Wordsworth.  A quick Google search later and I had re-discovered a treasure.  I have been thoroughly enjoying the poem Intimations of Immortality.   I particularly like this section of the poem:


Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
 But trailing clouds of glory do we come
 From God, who is our home:
 Heaven lies about us in our infancy! 
 Shades of the prison-house begin to close 
 Upon the growing Boy,
But he beholds the light, and whence it flows,
He sees it in his joy;
The Youth, who daily farther from the east
Must travel, still is Nature’s priest,
And by the vision splendid
Is on his way attended;
At length the Man perceives it die away,
And fade into the light of common day…
~ William Wordsworth

I haven’t gotten too far into Wordsworth but I found The Complete Works of William Wordsworth for $0.99.  It is not free but fairly close.  At this price, I downloaded it to my Kindle for a time that will allow me to merely appreciate without educational compulsion.


FREE EBOOK FRIDAY (The Pursuit of God)

November 27, 2015

51l5b37AaHL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_If you follow my Facebook site, Daily Devotionals, you will know that I appreciate A.W. Tozer.  I tend to post a lot of his quotes.

My appreciation of Tozer started 20 years ago when I first read his book, The Pursuit of God.  Tozer was a pastor of several churches over three decades.  Much of his writing reflects a his concern that the church was on a dangerous course toward compromising with the world.  While he died in 1963, I find his concerns still very applicable and insightful.

Therefore, I was very excited to find The Pursuit of God for FREE as an EBook!  If you have never read any of Tozer’s writing, here is your chance.

Here is the link:  The Pursuit of God

“We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum.”
~ A. W. Tozer


FREE EBOOK FRIDAY (Pilgrim’s Progress)

November 20, 2015

51DEwVfXCUL._SX330_BO1,204,203,200_If you have read much from this blog, it will not come as a surprise to learn that I like allegory.  Therefore, it will be even less of a surprise to learn that I am a big fan of one of the most famous books of Christian allegory, Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan.

This book is testimony to the fact that while technology might change through the years, basic human nature has remained relatively constant from one generation to the next.  Pilgrim’s Progress was written in 1678 and has never been out of print.  The continued popularity of this story demonstrates that the challenges of Christians in 21st Century are still very similar to those of  the 17th Century, allegory protagonist, Christian.

I ran across a deal that I could not help but pass along.  Pilgrim’s Progress for FREE!  Every self-respecting Christian should own a copy of this classic and here is your chance to get it without having to spend any coin.
