A History of Western Philosophy and Theology John FrameReformed Theological Seminary has released free audio on iTunesU of John Frame’s course Legacy: History of Philosophy and Christian Thought.

This course covers the same material as his book A History of Western Philosophy and Theology which is available on Amazon (Hardcover and Kindle) as well as the Westminster Theological Seminary Bookstore. Read a description of the book:

A History of Western Philosophy and Theology is the fruit of John Frame’s forty- five years of teaching philosophical subjects. No other survey of the history of Western thought offers the same invigorating blend of expositional clarity, critical insight, and biblical wisdom. The supplemental study questions, bibliographies, links to audio lectures, quotes from influential thinkers, twenty appendices, and indexed glossary make this an excellent main textbook choice for seminary- and college-level courses and for personal study.

3 Free A.W. Tozer Kindle Books

Aiden Wilson Tozer (1897 – 1963) was an American Christian pastor, preacher, beloved author, magazine editor, and spiritual mentor. 

Here are three free A.W. Tozer Kindle Books:

1. The Knowledge of the Holy – A. W. Tozer (right click to download)

2. Man – The Dwelling Place of God – A. W. Tozer (right click to download)

3. The Pursuit of God – A. W. Tozer (right click to download) or download the free version from the Kindle Store.

Here’s a powerful story shared by Randy Alcorn about The Knowledge of the Holy:

Five years ago a friend and I had lunch with Bruce Ware, who teaches theology at Southern Seminary in Louisville, and Gerry Breshears, theology professor at Western Seminary in Portland.

Bruce asked me, “Randy, of all books besides the Bible itself, what book has had the greatest influence on your life?” And I said, “That’s easy. Without a doubt it’s A. W. Tozer’s book The Knowledge of the Holy.”

Bruce smiled and said, “You’re kidding. That’s the book that has had the biggest influence on my life!”

And then Gerry Breshears said, “Okay, this is crazy. That’s my number one book too!”

If you haven’t read The Knowledge of the Holy, I encourage you to. (Or listen to the excellent audio read by Scott Brick, only 4.5 hours). Give God a chance to use it in your life as he has in so many others. It’s a short book written with extraordinary concision and power. Tozer observes, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” Utterly true, and with incredible life-shaping impact.

Francis Chan Marriage book - You and Me Forever

Best-selling Christian author Francis Chan’s new book on marriage called You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity is available as a free PDF (with email opt-in).

Here’s a description of the book from Amazon:

Marriage is great, but it’s not forever. It’s until death do us part. Then come eternal rewards or regrets depending on how we spent our lives.

In his latest book, Francis Chan joins together with his wife Lisa to address the question many couples wonder at the altar: “How do I have a healthy marriage?” Setting aside typical topics on marriage, Francis and Lisa dive into Scripture to understand what it means to have a relationship that satisfies the deepest parts of our souls.

In the same way Crazy Love changed the way we saw our personal relationship with God, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity will radically shift the way we see one of the most important relationships in our life.  Jesus was right. We have it all backwards. The way to have a great marriage is by not focusing on marriage.

Whether you are single, dating or married, You and Me Forever will help you discover the adventure that you were made for ­­and learn how to thrive in it.

(You will also want to check out the free iOS and Android App the Chans made to go along with the book.)

R.C. Sproul is the author of The Barber Who Wanted to Pray, a children’s book based on Martin Luther’s A Simple Way to Pray.

The audiobook of the story is available below (courtesy of Ligonier Ministries).

The book’s description on Amazon:

This imaginative tale, based on a true story, begins one evening with Mr. McFarland leading family devotions. When his daughter asks him how she should pray, Mr. McFarland shares a 500-year-old story—a story about a barber and his famous customer.

Master Peter is a barber well known to all in his village. One day, when Martin Luther the Reformer walks into his shop, the barber musters up the courage to ask the outlawed monk how to pray. Dr. Luther responds by writing a letter to the barber (a letter that we know today as the book, A Simple Way to Pray!). The barber’s life is changed as he encounters a model for prayer by using the Lord’s Prayer, the Ten Commandments, and the Apostles’ Creed.

R. C. Sproul’s beautifully illustrated story will engage children and help them learn to pray according to the Bible. Dr. Sproul’s unique gift for explaining complex truths will make this a treasured book to be returned to time after time—a delight for both children and their parents!

“Preparing Our Hearts for Easter”

What is Lent? The word “Lent” comes from the Old English word “lengten,” which simply means “spring” — when the days lengthen and new life springs forth. It is a time in which we anticipate the victory of the light and life of Christ over the darkness of sin and death. It is, to borrow a phrase from C.S. Lewis, a season of a kind of “happiness and wonder that makes you serious.”

It is our prayer that as you journey with us from Ash Wednesday to Easter, you would be reminded of the reality of our broken humanity, but as days grow brighter, you would experience with greater abundance the reality of God’s redeeming grace. And so, just as we carefully prepare for big events in our personal lives, such as a wedding or commencement, Lent invites us to make our hearts ready for remembering Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Click here for free access to the devotionals.

Based on positive feedback, we are making these devotionals (from 2011) available again for use. You can add all forty dates of lent to your calendar (along with the individual page link for each days devotional), by clicking on the one of the options below.
