I apologize if you’ve received more email than usual from me. I’m transitioning some content to this site and backdating it, but people who are subscribed via WordPress (instead of MailerLite) might receive a few extra emails here and there. The good news is that it is helpful content!
The organization I serve with just rebranded ourselves as WordPartners and launched a new website. I’m grateful to God for leading us here and excited to see how He will continue to use the ministry.
This Month’s Recommendations
- The documentary American Gospel: Christ Crucified. This follow-up to the first American Gospel tackles progressive/emergent Christianity. It takes a bold stand for the gospel amongst popular erroneous teaching (although it moves pretty fast and might be hard for some to process). I met a former prosperity pastor a few weeks ago who said the first American Gospel helped him leave the false prosperity movement!
- A free Christian show for kids on YouTube: Superbook (free in Spanish too). My daughter is really enjoying this show.
- Free eBook: John 13-21 For You by Josh Moody
- There are so many free Logos books this month I’ll just link to this roundup. (I can’t vouch for the Anchor Bible Commentary series titles.)
- WTSBooks has a great deal on John Piper’s new book Providence. Buy the hardcover at 50% off, get the ebook free. Or download the free PDF from DesiringGod.
