You, Your Family and the Internet

You, Your Family and the Internet – free kindle book

How may Christians better understand the dangers and opportunities offered by the Internet? This book resource, written by an expert in the field, explains and illustrates what the technologies are and guides readers to draw on biblical principles (such as self-control and accountability) to help them to apply these to the dangers at hand. It also encourages believers to make the best use of opportunities that arise from judicious use of the World Wide Web.

Today some two billion people around the world use the Internet. Almost 80% of North Americans are connected to the web. But even as we use it, few of us understand the dizzying array of its applications and implications. David Clark guides us through the complexities of the Internet with simple, clear explanations. Even better, he unveils the spiritual implications of the Internet, both positive and negative. Pastors, parents, and teachers will greatly appreciate this book, as will the everyday Christian who, like me, is struggling to keep up with the ever-expanding universe of cyber-space, desiring to use it to God’s glory and the welfare of our families and Christ’s church.

Dr. Joel Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Much has been written about living as Christians in this digital world; much more will be written in the days and years to come. The unique strength of David Clark’s contribution is in his application of key biblical principles that will guide our use of these technologies and inform our dedication to them.

Frugal Tips and Recipes for the Wise Homemaker

Frugal Tips and Recipes for the Wise Homemaker

This ebook is organized in such a way so that you will enjoy just sitting down and reading through it. Recipes and tips will be sprinkled throughout as ladies from my newsletter list share what has worked for them. I felt to keep each lady’s recipes, tips, and thoughts together would better give you an idea where each lady is coming from. I want to personally thank each one who sent me a recipe and/or tip for this ebook. I pray you are blessed as each one shares what has worked in their home and in their family, and you are able to find some frugal ideas to try. I know I learned some new things as I read and researched for this project! In these uncertain times, we need to do what we can to help each other. Sharing from our homemaking experiences is one way we can mentor each other… in the spirit of Titus 2.

The Hour That Changes the World

Hour That Changes the World, The: A Practical Plan for Personal Prayer

The Hour That Changes the World, first published by Baker in 1978, is a classic book on prayer that offers practical suggestions on how readers can revitalize their prayer lives. Dick Eastman challenges Christians to spend one hour each day in prayer, and he outlines a twelve-step prayer program to help them accomplish the task. By dividing one hour into twelve five-minute “points of focus,” such as praise, waiting, confession, and Scripture praying, believers will develop a more consistent habit of daily prayer. The Hour That Changes the World draws heavily on Scripture and classic devotional writers and includes an appendix titled “Scriptural Intercession.”This 25th anniversary edition features a new introduction by Eastman and a new foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada, in which she writes: “The Hour That Changes the World may appear small and modest, but don’t let its size fool you. Full of biblical insights about prayer, packed with testimonies of prayer warriors from years past, brimming with practical suggestions that will help you carve out a purposeful time of praise and intercession, Dick Eastman’s book is arguably the most significant book on prayer written in modern times.”

The Most Misused Verses in the Bible, Surprising Ways God’s Word Is Misunderstood

The Most Misused Verses in the Bible, Surprising Ways God’s Word Is Misunderstood

Are you sure you know what your favorite Bible verses mean?

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”–Philippians 4:13
“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”–Jeremiah 29:11
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good.”–Romans 8:28

These and a surprising number of well-known Scripture passages are commonly misused or misunderstood. Even well-intentioned Christians take important verses out of context, and pastor Eric J. Bargerhuff has seen the effects: confusion, poor decisions, and a distorted view of God’s Word.

In this concise yet thorough book, Bargerhuff helps all of us understand what these verses meant when they were written so we can apply them accurately today. Providing fascinating historical and scriptural insights, he shows how to read God’s promises and instructions in context and appreciate even more the Bible’s eternal message.

Transforming Grace: Living Confidently in God’s Unfailing Love

Transforming Grace: Living Confidently in God’s Unfailing Love by Jerry Bridges

The freedom in falling short of God’s standard relies on His gift of grace. Unfortunately, too many of us forget the free offer. We spend our lives basing our relationship with God on our performance rather than on Him. We see our identity as never being worthy of His love.

The product of more than 10 years of Bible study, Navigator author Jerry Bridges’ Transforming Grace is a fountainhead of inspiration and renewal that will show you just how inexhaustible and generous God’s grace really is.

A Place of Healing by Joni Eareckson Tada

A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain, and God’s Sovereignty

by Joni Eareckson Tada

In this eloquent account of her current struggle with physical pain, Joni Eareckson Tada offers her perspective on divine healing, God’s purposes, and what it means to live with joy. Over four decades ago, a diving accident left Joni a quadriplegic. Today, she faces a new battle: unrelenting pain. The ongoing urgency of this season in her life has caused Joni to return to foundational questions about suffering and God’s will. A Place of Healing is not an ivory-tower treatise on suffering. It’s an intimate look into the life of a mature woman of God. Whether readers are enduring physical pain, financial loss, or relational grief, Joni invites them to process their suffering with her. Together, they will navigate the distance between God’s magnificent yes and heartbreaking no—and find new hope for thriving in-between.

10 People Every Christian Should Know – Wiersbe

Three free eBooks – two are from Amazon and the last is from Vyrso, the book reading section of Logos.  The nice thing about Vyrso books is that when they are full of Scripture the verse works like a pop up just like on my website.  Makes reading much easier. Vyrso does require an account set up even for “free” books.  Like usual these books won’t be available for long.

Backsliding – Bunyan

The Steps of Backsliding according to Christian in Pilgrim’s Progress.

1. They draw off their thoughts, all that they may, from the remembrance of God, death, and judgment to come.

2. Then they cast off by degrees private duties, as closet prayer, curbing their lusts, watching, sorrow for sin, and the like.

3. Then they shun the company of lively and warm Christians.

4. After that they grow cold to public duty, as hearing, reading, godly conference, and the like.

5. Then they begin to pick holes, as we say, in the coats of some of the godly; and that devilishly, that they may have a seeming colour to throw religion (for the sake of some infirmity they have espied in them) behind their backs.

6. Then they begin to adhere to, and associate themselves with, carnal, loose, and wanton men.

7. Then they give way to carnal and wanton discourses in secret; and glad are they if they can see such things in any that are counted honest, that they may the more boldly do it through their example.

8. After this they begin to play with little sins openly.

9. And then, being hardened, they show themselves as they are. Thus, being launched again into the gulf of misery, unless a miracle of grace prevent it, they everlastingly perish in their own deceivings.

Are you traveling along the steps of backsliding?

Do you know others that need to be made aware that they are backsliding or at least moving in that direction?

Has prayer and Bible study faded into the distance?

Are you toying with “little” sins?

Do you pick apart the lives of others:

“They’re not as righteous as they seem to be ….”.
“He ignored me when I said hello last Sunday.”
“They are too judgmental ‘judge not’.”

 

Bible Study based on the book Pilgrim’s Progress in Today’s English.
