For a limited time, 9Marks is giving away the ePub and Kindle version of Jonathan Leeman’s book Church Membership: How the World Knows Who Represents Jesus.
Description of the book:

Jonathan Leeman addresses the commonly asked (and often unanswered) question of, “Why should I join a church?” in a time when many are shunning the practice of organized religion. By offering a brief, straightforward explanation of what church membership is and why it’s important, Leeman gives the local church its proper due and builds a case for committing to the local body. Church Membership is a useful tool for churches to distribute en masse to new and potential members of their congregation.

This volume is part of the 9Marks: Building Healthy Churches series. Look for upcoming, quick-read formats of the following marks of a healthy church: expositional preaching, biblical theology, the gospel, conversion, evangelism, church discipline, discipleship and growth, and church leadership.

Buy the hardcover version on Amazon.

Free Ebook: What Is the Gospel? by Greg Gilbert

What is the gospel? It seems like a simple question, yet it has been known to incite some heated responses, even in the church. How are we to formulate a clear, biblical understanding of the gospel? Tradition, reason, and experience all leave us ultimately disappointed. If we want answers, we must turn to the Word of God.

Greg Gilbert does so in What Is the Gospel? Beginning with Paul’s systematic presentation of the gospel in Romans and moving through the sermons in Acts, Gilbert argues that the central structure of the gospel consists of four main subjects: God, man, Christ, and response. The book carefully examines each and then explores the effects the gospel can have in individuals, churches, and the world.

A Parable of Permanence (via Crossway.org)

The chasm between the biblical vision of marriage and the common human conception is—and has always been—gargantuan. In This Momentary Marriage: A Parable of Permanence, John Piper reflects on over forty years of matrimony, exalting the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion and exhorting couples to keep their covenant as a display of Christ’s covenant-keeping love for the church.

He aims to lift the church’s low view of marriage to something infinitely greater, namely, a vision of Jesus’s unswerving allegiance to and affection for his bride. This Momentary Marriage unpacks the biblical vision, its unexpected contours, and its weighty implications for married, single, divorced, and remarried alike. Now available in paperback with a freshly redesigned cover, Piper’s book on marriage holds even greater appeal.

Stranger on the Road to Emmaus John CrossFree: The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus: Who was the Man? What was the Message? Kindle Edition

by John R. Cross (Author)

It’s been called “the most misunderstood book in history.”

Wars have been fought in its name, scandals have been precipitated by it, politics shaped and reshaped at its word. Theologians have both defended and reviled it. Skeptics have done the same. If you are a typical member of the human race, you have often been perplexed by all the “fuss” surrounding the Bible. The question remains, “What does it really say?”
Here is a book that explains the greatest of Bible themes clearly and logically. Rather than focusing on one part—and missing the whole—the author chronologically binds together the entire text into one great universal drama, looking at events from the perspective of those who experienced history in the making. The results are sometimes comical, sometimes frightening—but always true to the intent of the text.
When you are done reading it, you may find yourself believing “the Book” like you never have before. Or you may decide not to. The author’s objective approach leaves that decision up to you.

“Even though I had attended church for over 30 years, the Bible never made sense to me. It was just a bunch of disjointed stories. Now the Bible all fits together in a clear, logical manner. It really is incredible.”

John R. Cross writes from knowledge gained in a life-long study of the Bible. He has extensive experience travelling and living abroad. John and his family are from Canada.

Bloodlines

Free Ebook (Kindle, ePub, PDF): Bloodlines by John Piper

Today as we honor the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and face the continuous presence of racial strife in our culture, may we also reflect on the true source of hope for peace, unity, and reconciliation—Jesus Christ. The good news of Jesus actively undermines the sins that feed racial strife, and leads to a many-colored and many-cultured kingdom of God.

In John Piper’s Bloodlines: Race, Cross, and the Christian, you’ll learn to pursue ethnic harmony from a biblical perspective, and to relate to real people different from yourself, as you take part in the bloodline of Jesus that is comprised of “every tongue, tribe, and nation.”

FREE: Health, Wealth & Happiness: Has the Prosperity Gospel Overshadowed the Gospel of Christ? Kindle Edition
by David W. Jones and Russell Woodbridge

Offer Valid only on January 2, 2016.

The desire for a thriving, healthy, and productive life is as strong as ever, especially in tough economic times. As people become more disillusioned at the state of the economy, they also become more susceptible to the lure of the prosperity gospel and its teachings of health, wealth, and happiness for the faithful. But what happens when the promise of prosperity overshadows the promise of the real gospel–the gospel of Christ?

Believing that the prosperity gospel is constructed upon faulty theology, authors David W. Jones and Russell S. Woodbridge take a closer look at five crucial areas of error relating to the prosperity gospel. In a fair but firm tone, the authors discuss the history and theology of the prosperity gospel movement to reveal its fraudulent core biblical teachings that have been historically and popularly misinterpreted, even by some of today’s most well-known pastors. After an introduction and assessment of the movement, readers are invited to take a look at Scripture to understand what the Bible really says about wealth, poverty, suffering, and giving.

Theologically sound but acessible to all readers, Health, Wealth & Happiness is sure to become a trusted resource for laypersons, pastors, and Christian leaders.
