Shame, Interrupted by Ed Welch Kindle Edition Free For Limited Time

Shame-Interrupted-199x300I got Shame Interrupted by Ed Welch from the Australian Amazon Kindle store for free.
It will only be available for a couple of days.
The blurb:
No More Hiding
Shame controls far too many of us. Worthless, inferior, rejected, weak, humiliated, failure…it all adds up to wishing we could get away from others and hide. We know what shame feels like. The way out, however, is harder to find. Time doesn’t help, neither does confession, because shame is just as often from what others do to you as it is from what you have done. But the Bible is about shame from start to finish, and, if we are willing, God’s beautiful words break through.
Look at Jesus through the lens of shame and see how the marginalized and worthless are his favorites and become his people. God cares for the shamed. Through Jesus you are covered, adopted, cleansed, and healed.

Billy Graham: Candid Conversations With A Public Man by David Frost – Kindle Edition Free For Limited Time

This looks like a very interesting read.

Thanks to Gospel eBooks for the link.

The blurb:

Billy-Graham-199x300Most people know Billy Graham the preacher.
Many know Billy Graham the author.
In this remarkable book, Graham reveals a personal side that few have seen before.
For thirty years, Billy Graham and David Frost fascinated television audiences with their conversations about God, the Bible, and Graham’s decades-long ministry. Frost asked the questions that thousands of viewers wanted to ask. Graham answered them with authenticity and grace.
Along the way, Graham provided insight into life as an evangelist, a Christian father and grandfather, and a public figure in a changing culture. Most of all, Graham’s words show what it means to live out your beliefs—whether you speak to millions of people around the world or simply want to live faithfully at home and work.
With a chronology of Graham’s life, a preface from Frost, and a foreword from his grandson, Tullian Tchividjian, this weaving of stories, interviews, and reflections will inspire you to respond to God’s call with no reserve.
Sir David Frost, who died in 2013, was an English journalist, comedian, and television host. Known for his history-making interviews with top political figures, Frost is the author of several books, including his autobiography. His famous interviews with Richard Nixon formed the basis for the Oscar-nominated film Frost/Nixon.

Caught Off Guard by William Smith – Kindle Edition Free For A Limited Time

As with some of the free books I list here, I don’t know much about Caught Off Guard or author William Smith, but New Growth Press publish some good material and this is free, so check it out.
The Kindle edition is free at Amazon for a very short time.
Gospel ebooks featured the link.
It was published in 2007 and deals with a theme that doesn’t get dressed a lot.

Caught-Off-Guard-199x300In his book author William P. Smith bridges the chasm between the heart and the head. Where is the reality of God in the middle of careers and groceries? Why are so many believers frustrated with the enormous gap between what they know about God and how they actually live?
In Caught Off Guard, author William P. Smith graciously addresses these seekers who have become dissatisfied with merely “talking theology” and instead yearn to taste and experience the “real thing”, a God who longs for relationship with them. With real stories from today and biblical times, Smith demonstrates surprising and often unnoticed attributes of a loving and purposeful God by proving:

  • How God draws near to the radically undeserving
  • How God responds to people who have feeble faith or even active doubt
  • How God will help you as you seek to live a righteous life
  • How God changes the people around you by radically transforming your heart, mind and soul

In Caught Off Guard, Smith draws an irresistible picture of the heart of God that shatters conventional wisdom, remains true to biblical principles and invites people to reconsider a deeper trust in our uncontrollable, loving God.
