Books N More (Dec. 3)

Don’t miss out on today’s FREE Advent deal from Logos. Today’s FREEBIE includes The Cornerstone Biblical Commentary on 1-2 Timothy, Titus, & Hebrews (regularly $26.95). The FREE Art for the Day is here.

For those of you who do not own Logos Bible Software and may think the posts about FREE books from Logos/Vyrso are not relevant to you I want to tell you two ways you can use these resources without spending any additional money.

  1. You can download the Logos 6 Core Engine for FREE (PC and Mac) and it comes with the basics necessary to read and study the Bible. And all the books that I tell you about are then added to your Logos Library. If you take advantage of the deals I post you will get (for FREE) hundreds, if not thousands of dollars worth of Bible Study materials and books. For a list of FREE books in addition to the ones that come with the Core Engine download go here.
  2. If you are not interested in Bible Study Software but prefer to just use a book reader, specifically Kindle – the resources (books) in Logos 6 are able to be sent to your Kindle. This is why instead of buying them in Kindle when they are on sale, I first check with Logos or Vyrso (their ebook publishing arm) and purchase them there. That way I get to use them in both Logos and Kindle. You can also just use the Vyrso reading app if you prefer. Thus you have several options to take advantage of the FREE and reduced price deals that Logos/Vyros offer.

From Amazon Kindle today you can get

Good Children’s Curriculum is not usually cheap. In our small church plant (with lots of children) we are always looking for new ideas and I probably find 1-2 new websites per week (someday I’ll post a list. Much of our ministry is done on-the-fly, not meaning unprepared but meaning on-the-go. We go to an Apartment Complex. We do an after school program at a local elementary school. We do ministry in public parks (and did church services there for a long time). This requires a lot of adaptation and though I probably won’t ever find the perfect curriculum the following are a couple I have come across this past month that seem pretty good and are FREE.

Books N More (Dec. 2)

The FREE Advent Book of the Day from Logos is Calvin’s Calvinism (2 vols). You can also still get Scripture and The Authority of God (NT Wright) along with today’s Advent Art – all for FREE.

Logos is also working on a project of scanning books and has made more than 8,000 available for FREE. You can search by subject, author, title, or even Scripture reference – all here. These are similar to Google books in that they appear as scanned images, not the Logos re-edited and re-published books available in their Bible Study Software. I’m thinking this maybe the first stage before they end up in the Bible Software?

Behold the Lamb is FREE from Amazon Kindle today and the New American Commentary Series is on sale for just $2.99 each as well (that’s a steal!). Also Gene Getz’ Men of Character series is on sale from 99 cents to 2.99 (Also at Vyrso/Logos).

Check out these other deals in December from Thomas Nelson, Baker, and this Grab Bag Assortment that has books by Oswald Chambers on Leadership, Adopting Without Debt and more.

From Paul Tripp’s website you can sign up for FREE Advent Devotional, as well as download the devotional and several videos.

Thanks to Tim Challies update in alerting us to the newest video from The Bible ProjectThe Book of Deuteronomy. This less than seven minute video provides an audio visual journey through Deuteronomy. Great Stuff!

For some good articles on Apologetics – taken straight from the HCSB Apologetics Study Bible For Students go here. You can sign up for 52 weeks of FREE resources here or you can begin viewing or downloading both pdf and videos of the 16 weeks available to date. For additional recommended articles go here and for reading recommendations go here. You can also download a sample of the Apologetics Study Bible or the Apologetics Study Bible for Students

B& H is also offering a FREE pdf of Finding Christ in Exodus from their recently released Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series as well.

Ever struggle with whether Creation was really in six days or not? Check out this interesting article to see what the Apostle Paul thought about it. Related to this is a FREE pdf book download Foundations: Sermons on Genesis 1-2 (I have not read so I am not necessarily agreeing with it’s content but I encourage a broad spectrum of reading and think it will be beneficial and encouraging). A second FREE book, Evangelism Starts With Genesis 1-3 is also available in pdf.

For users of The Word (FREE Bible Software), if you are not aware there are additional websites with hundreds of resources formatted for The Word. Here is one of the best.
