In this four week mini Bible Study you will examine your faith and what it means to have faith in God.
He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
Our faith begins with what we know and believe about God. Our faith will carry us how far we are willing to let it take us. Faith is a choice and we need to begin by choosing to believe in Jesus and His power to move mountains, heal the sick, and save us from all our sins through His sacrifice on the cross.
When we believe in God we then learn to walk in faith and trust God. But first we must believe, and it’s up to us, we can either choose to believe in Him or not. But faith will mean nothing until we believe with all our heart that God is who He says He is.

Are you praying the Lord’s Prayer like it’s a dutiful mantra needed to get to the next step of the worship service, to end a meeting properly, or to remind your group that there’s a spiritual component to your gathering? This book will infuse new energy into this universal and timeless prayer.
The author’s easy to read explanations show the beauty and depths of meaning hidden beneath its traditional words. Using translations arising from the language Jesus spoke, Aramaic, he adds color and freshness to its words. More poetic and mystical than the Greek language, Aramaic invites listeners to explore meanings of words at the levels of body, mind, and spirit. With new understanding, you won’t want to rush through the Lord’s Prayer to get finished, but to meditate on it and let it wash you with new meaning every time you pray it.

This book is a compilation, by popular demand, of twelve challenging articles which were originally commissioned for Needed Truth magazine(www.neededtruth.net) in 2009.
There are times when every Christian believer feels a sense of dissatisfaction with his or her life of discipleship Those of us who love the Lord and value our Bibles will, from time to time, be motivated to explore again the character of radical discipleship as opposed to pew-filling, sermon-tasting comfortable ‘churchianity’ which for many can end up as a sort of passive, if not pious, ‘spectator sport’.
“The Call of Christ” is ideal for times like that and even a glance at some of the topics explored will remind us what being a disciple of Jesus is really all about:
• Called to serve
• Called to suffer
• Called to die
• Called to simple dependence on God
• Called to be saints
• Called as we are
• Called to community
• Called to obey
• Called to possess God’s hope
• Called to share a heavenly calling
It is always good to finish on a high, and we certainly do that in this book. The high point of our discipleship is our worship experience among God’s people. As we journey through the individual contributions which together present us with a biblical kaleidoscope of discipleship, what comes into focus is the fact that the call to Christ is the call to God’s community, and that in turn is the call to worship (and what a worship experience it truly is, as described in the final contribution). Such a mind-blowing privilege explains – and renders so worthwhile – the high demands of true biblical discipleship which all the contributions making up this book present us with.

Note: I have read this prior to regularly reviewing on Bookwi.se Highly recommend both for Peterson’s understanding of how to read scripture and his theory on why he wrote the Message Bible.
Eugene Peterson is convinced that the way we read the Bible is as important as that we read it. Do we read the Bible for information about God and salvation, for principles and “truths” that we can use to live better? Or do we read it in order to listen to God and respond in prayer and obedience?
The second part of Peterson’s momentous five-volume work on spiritual theology, Eat This Book challenges us to read the Scriptures on their own terms, as God’s revelation, and to live them as we read them. With warmth and wisdom Peterson offers greatly needed, down-to-earth counsel on spiritual reading. In these pages he draws readers into a fascinating conversation on the nature of language, the ancient practice of lectio divina, and the role of Scripture translations; included here is the “inside story” behind Peterson’s own popular Bible translation, The Message.
Countering the widespread practice of using the Bible for self-serving purposes, Peterson here serves readers with a nourishing entrée into the formative, life-changing art of spiritual reading.
I have not read any of these books, so they may not be any good. Some of the 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.
