Funny how the exceeding riches of God’s grace seem to run out the moment we’re saved. From then on, we tend to base our relationship with Him on our performance rather than on His grace. Of course, God continues to deal with us on the basis of His grace, whether or not we understand it. It’s just that when we don’t, we forgo the abundant freedoms that come from not having to measure up.
The product of more than ten years of Bible study, Transforming Grace is a fountainhead of inspiration and renewal that will show you just how inexhaustible and generous God’s grace really is. You’ll never be able to ask for too much, need too much, hope for too much, or even sin too much. Like a never-ending stream of ocean waves crashing on the shore, His grace “superabounds” toward you without measure.

Readers often think of Job sitting on the ash heap, his life in shambles. But how did he get there? What was Job’s life like before tragedy struck? What did he think as his world came crashing down around him? And what was life like after God restored his wealth, health, and family? Through painstaking research and a writer’s creative mind, Mesu Andrews weaves an emotional and stirring account of this well-known story told through the eyes of the women who loved him. Drawing together the account of Job with those of Esau’s tribe and Jacob’s daughter Dinah, Love Amid the Ashes breathes life, romance, and passion into the classic biblical story of suffering and steadfast faith.

Many books have been written about Jesus Christ that inspire us to want to know him more intimately. While that’s an admirable goal for an author, the book you are about to read does something greater. ‘Look! The Finished Work of Jesus’ doesn’t just cause the reader to hunger to know him more; it fills that very hunger by presenting Jesus in such a way that you actually sense his loving embrace as you read the book.
As I read this book, I found myself delighting again and again in some of the things Mick Mooney has written here. While this book will certainly teach you, it does more than that; it will touch you with a personal awareness of divine agape being expressed to you even as you read. More than once I felt as if my Father’s arms were holding me close while his voice whispered of his love to me through these chapters.
Religion complicates and confuses people by its demands and harsh scrutiny of our behaviour. The grace of God stands in stark contrast to religion by assuring us that because of the finished work of Jesus, we are not only in good standing with God but are actually cherished by him. Grace frees us from trying to prove anything to him, to others or even to ourselves. Mick has a firm grasp on that reality and writes in a way that causes others to understand it too.
The religious climate of the world today promotes the idea that we need to do certain things to earn God’s blessings and to make spiritual progress. This is a book that is counter-cultural to the world of legalism. It points us to Jesus Christ and causes us to see and really believe that what he has done on our behalf is indeed sufficient and that there is nothing left for us to do other than live out of the reality of his finished work.
I predict that ‘Look! The Finished Work of Jesus’ is going to be used by our Father to set many people free from the prison of religious performance and usher them into the rest that only comes by living in his grace.

Our lives revolve around our deepest needs and greatest treasures. Relationships. Family. Financial security. Private hopes and dreams.
Most of our desires are healthy. Yet these longings can become passions we not only pursue, but worship. And while idol worship may seem like ancient history, we still face the modern-day equivalent [version], as natural needs slowly consume our hearts and minds, competing with God’s rightful place in our lives.
No Other gods offers a revealing look at the heart of a woman. Author Kelly Minter explores what happens when good desires become false gods, robbing us of an intimate relationship with our heavenly father.
So discover the freedom in surrender. The healing in worship. And the joy found in exchanging everyday gods for the one true God.

Whether our earthly fathers have been good to us, or have abandoned, abused, or pushed us, or just failed to love us as they should have, we have a Father who is far greater than any we have ever known. He is waiting. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time To Know God as Father.

Originally penned as a 4-part article series for the Society for Church Consulting, this pithy message takes aim at the dearth of Human Resource savvy among many churches today and paints a compelling vision for stewarding our staff with wisdom, compassion, and skill. Daley leans on 25+ years of experience as pastor, consultant, corporate trainer, and leadership coach to unlock a handful of essential mindsets and strategies that will help you decide who to hire, how to develop the staff you have, and when and how to fire when necessary. Very little has been written about this crucial topic, and our churches have a trail of “bodies” in their wake to show for it. It’s time to stop the carnage…and this book will show the way.
Jerome Daley, ACC, DPM, is a leadership coach and business consultant, trainer and speaker. The author of six other books and former publisher of Christian Coaching Magazine, Jerome’s passion is simple: helping organizational leaders thrive in their inner lives and their outer leadership.

Asking good questions is the key to understanding. The Query the Text Series gives you the ability to teach through whole books of the Bible in the natural rhythm of question and answer. Each lesson is designed to be highly interactive and to fit within a thirty to forty-five minute window of time.
In publishing this material, I hope to give teachers an inexpensive option for adult Sunday School curriculum that both increases the interaction level of their small groups and maintains the focus on biblical exposition. Hopefully, many teachers will also find it a little easier “to be ready in season and out of season” with the convenience of having a ready-to-teach lesson always with them on their Kindle or iPad.
Look for other Old and New Testament books to be released soon in the Query the Text Series.

In this concise e-booklet, bible teacher Keith Dorricott surveys 2,000 years of Christianity and explains how the important pattern that was set out in the New Testament in the early church as to how God wanted to be served, was gradually lost over the succeeding centuries. He goes on to discuss how the truth was gradually recovered through the Reformation and the emergence of the Brethren movement, culminating in the re-establishment of Churches of God.

Our church needed a new pastor in late 2009. After we had successfully completed the process, I decided to document the process that we used. I drew heavily on my experience in the corporate world as a software development manager and also my experience as a school board member and other local political activities. However, nothing replaces prayer and seeking God’s wisdom in an undertaking as important as selecting a pastor. I hope this book will help you as you prayerfully undertake this task.
I have not read any of these books, so they may not be any good. Some of the free Christian Kindle books from previous Free Book posts are still available for free. If you want to see all free books as they come out you should follow Books on the Knob on their RSS or Twitter Feed. Or Ireaderreview or the many free book threads on Amazon’s Message Boards.
As always please check to make sure the books are still free before you “buy” them, especially from Amazon. Prices can change quickly. This may be a one day offer. Pick it up quick. If you do buy a book and realize later you have been charged for it, here is a guide on how to return a kindle book.
