Because of the recent Price Fixing Settlement between Harper Collins and the Dept of Justice, there is a slow transition back to the ebook store setting the prices on their ebooks instead of the publishers (just like regular paper books.) But we are still in a grey area. Not all books have been released back to Amazon to price and most of the imprints (including Zondervan) have not been released any books back to Amazon. But there are Zondervan books that are free on other sites and
at least right now those books have not been marked as free for Kindle. If you want to get the ePub versions (which might be able to be converted by Calibri) or can be read on an ipad or phone or computer, then you should go ahead and pick them up now. You can also report the lower price to Amazon and that might help.

God’s vision is for each person to grow spiritually toward a life where the Spirit flows through them like a river. The Me I Want to Be guides readers through the great task and joy of becoming God’s best version of ourselves.
Bestselling author John Ortberg uses Scripture to confirm God’s vision for his creation and reassure readers that this is God’s project, not our own. Simply follow His lead and stay on taskâ€”not always easy for real people living in the real world. But this straightforward guide provides the inspiration and the tools people need for sidestepping the barriers they encounter. It also gives clear, practical instructions for building the skills and practices necessary for sustained spiritual growth.
The Me I Want to Be resonates with Christians who are young or old, new or seasoned. It’s the ideal guide for anyone who longs to be spiritually mature, fully alive, and more closely aligned with God’s perfect vision.

If someone asked, ‘Are you a fan of Jesus?’, how would you answer? You attend every movie featuring a certain actor, you know the stats of your sports hero, and can recite each lyric from your favorite band. In short, you’re a huge fan. But are you treating Jesus the same as the other people you admire? The truth is, Jesus wants more than the church attendance, occasional prayer, and the ability to recite Scripture—the fan response. He’s looking for people who are actually willing to sacrifice in order to follow him. In this teen edition of Not a Fan, Kyle Idleman uses humor, personal stories, and biblical truth as he challenges you to look at what it means to call yourself a Christian, and what it means to follow the radical call Jesus presents. So will you be a fan, or a follower?

I have not read any of these books, so they may not be any good. Some of the books from previous Free Book posts or previous Kindle Deal posts are still available.
