Jan 30th - Free Christian Kindle Books


The story of Jesus cannot be contained in a history of 33 years on an ancient strip of land along the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. The group of 120 followers Jesus empowered transformed the world with the good news of redemption and reconciliation he preached. In this journey through the book of Acts, discover the leaps of faith taken by the early church to spread the news of the miracles they'd witnessed and the message they'd received.

Their story carries us his current followers into our future. Their devotion and perseverance challenges us to step out in faith and make a difference in Jesus' name. We can experience Jesus' presence and power as the early church did, and be part of the ongoing movement to change the world with his revolutionary message.

Leith Anderson is Senior Pastor of Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, and the President of the National Association of Evangelicals. He is heard weekly on the radio program Faith Matters, broadcast on over 100 U.S. radio stations. His previous books include How to Act Like a Christian and Jesus: An Intimate Portrait of the Man, His Land, and His People.

THE GOOD LIFE - by Chuck Colson

From Publisher's Weekly:
Colson—bestselling author, political figure and ministry leader—wrote this book to help readers answer "deep questions... that [determine] how we will live and how we will die and whether our lives will count for something." It is part memoir, as Colson reflects on his own rights and wrongs. For Colson, how people live comes down to their worldview – how their core beliefs about life shape their actions. He covers key paradoxes (i.e., "Out of suffering and defeat often comes victory") and spends a large section of the book establishing the existence of "capital-T truth," a concept Colson argues provides hope and "makes life a breathtaking challenge." He addresses a number of social and political issues, including evolution, euthanasia and homosexuality. Stories are central to this exploration, and Colson incorporates many different kinds: his own Watergate experience, popular films, stories of war and oppression, and front-page business scandals. While he attempts to conduct his search "without relying on any prior assumptions or sectarian convictions," his Christian faith is ever present, and some who start from an opposing position may find his arguments weak. However, Colson's deep humility is striking, and many will welcome this well-researched book, built on his lifetime of learning and extraordinary experience. (June)

One of the chief difficulties in studying the history of Christianity is the lack of prior exposure to the subject that students often bring with them. Struggling to keep up with the large numbers of names, dates, and places presented to them, it is easy for students to lose sight of the "big picture," the broad sweep of movement and change that instructors most wish to communicate. Justo Gonzalez has written this book to help students gain just such a quick and basic grasp of the main periods and issues in the history of Christianity. Drawing upon his own extensive experience and that of others, he contends that having been introduced to the essentials of church history in a brief and accessible form, students are then far better able to understand and appreciate what they encounter in more detailed lectures and reading.

But when he spies the marks on her back and hears about her stepfather’s advances, Clayton knows he must spirit Vanessa away to safety.As they make their way west, it becomes apparent that there’s something special between Vanessa and Clayton— far more significant than mere friendship or his sense of duty.

Having established that what you were taught in Sunday school is true without a doubt, you may then still wonder what God is like. Beverly explains how our heavenly Father has shown us clearly what He is like, in both the extravagant design revealed in the things that he has made and in His son Jesus Christ. In so doing God reveals how he feels about you and me. This book invites you to commit your mind and heart wholeheartedly, without reservation, to a loving God who rules with power and compassion, who knows you intimately, and who wants your allegiance and who deserves your worship.

There's lots of Christian Kindle eBooks for free today!  Check them all out below!


Following her successful Glimpses of Heaven, Trudy Harris has collected even more true stories of the tender beauty and pain of life's end. Through her own stories and those of medical professionals and hospice workers, Harris brings readers with her on the search for God, forgiveness, faith, repentance, and ultimate acceptance and peace.

Kyle (The Christian Girl's Guide to Style) moves from tween girl writing in her debut adult novel with the unlikely scenario of a 35- year-old love letter found by 23-year-old Claire James in her recently deceased mother's '72 Volkswagen glove compartment. After Claire loses her waitress job and is kicked out of her sister's apartment, she heads to Capitola, Calif., in search of the author of the love letter, having become obsessed with ferreting him out. After a series of clunky mishaps, Claire lands a job and a place to stay, where she conveniently meets up with her mother's long-lost love. Part mystery, part comedy, the story places Claire in the middle of numerous unlikely emotionally charged situations with the residents of Capitola. Determined to unravel the secret behind the love letter, Claire doesn't give up until the truth is told. Kyle's interweaving of so many characters is implausible and contrived, and she fails to connect readers emotionally with Claire and her search.

Rules to Live By: 52 Principles for a Better Life

In our hectic and pressured lives, most of us long for less stumbling around and more consistency and order. At the same time, we want to be flexible and responsive to the needs of our family, friends, and coworkers. To achieve this sense of order, we rustle through self-help books, retool our schedules and priorities, and explore ideas on reinventing ourselves, our marriages, and our families.

Jerry White says he tried all these options but something else has been more helpful: From his early days at the space program in Mission Control at Cape Canaveral, he developed, pursued, and practiced a set of “rules” that have helped him respond to life without having to figure out every situation anew as it arises. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist as Jerry was. Through these fifty-two practical principles, learn how to live a more organized and successful life.

Taken from his years in the military, at NASA, and with The Navigators, Dr. Jerry White shares insights and wisdom to point you toward a more balanced life. His 52 guiding principles do more than just tell you what you should do--they outline the godly life you can have today.
