Christian Audio is offering a biography on A.W. Tozer for free this month. Haven’t read it personally but several who have say it is worth getting–especially for free. You will be encouraged by some of this man’s godliness but also realize that he had feet of clay–like all servants of God do.

Justin Taylor notes that D. A. Carson “strongly endorses Dr. Megan Best’s new book, Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: Ethics and the Beginning of Human Life (Matthias Media, 2012): “At last—a single volume examining beginning-of-life issues that is equally competent in biology, theology, philosophy, and pastoral care. This is now the ‘must read’ book in the field, a necessary resource not only for pastors, ethicists, and laypersons who share her Christian convictions, but also for anyone who wants to participate knowledgeably in current bioethical debates.”
Many bloggers I read are talking about the new book by J. D. Greear entitled Stop Asking Jesus into Your Heart: How to Know for Sure You are Saved. It’s on sale right now for a reasonable price in the Kindle edition. You can read one chapter here for free.

It runs about 2.5 hours and lists for $12.98, but we are offering it here for just $7.49.” You can listen to chapter 3 of Who I Am for free by clicking here.
David Murray reviews Building a Pure Life, a “book was forged in the battlefield of personal sanctification as Pastor and Biblical Counselor, Dave Coats, fought for purity in this muddy world. Also, having worked with people in this area of spiritual struggle for many years, he concluded that the best way to help people who already lacked personal discipline and self-control was to provide a workbook format that “forced” them to study the Word of God daily.Over an eight week period of manageable daily lessons, Dave systematically dismantles the heart idols that surround the sins of impurity and gradually builds a new and powerful sense of the greatness and goodness of God. The mind is renewed by daily readings, songs, meditations, and questions, hopefully renewing the heart in the process.” You can buy it here.

A year or so ago, I was alerted about a new/old book called The Hidden Life of Prayer. John Piper strongly endorsed it and it was relatively inexpensive. All of our pastors and deacons read it and interacted with it. It was a helpful little volume on prayer.
Tim Challies is leading an online discussion of it over the next few weeks. Most of you will probably not participate in that but there are some really good deals regarding this book that you might want to check out including a very inexpensive Kindle edition of this classic and a free audiobook just released.
