Found out about a number of eBook deals this week. You don’t have to have an iPad or a Kindle to benefit from these. If you can read this blog post, you can access these deals. (See this for more information on reading Kindle books on your computer or phone.)
Books I’ve read:
- D. A. Carson and Douglas Moo, An Introduction to the New Testament. One of my seminary textbooks. Faithfully deals with introductory issues in NT studies. Glad to convert my paper copy to an eBook. Would prefer to have it in Logos, but right now Amazon has it for 10% of the Logos price. You can get the Kindle version for just $3.99.
- Mark Dever, 9 Marks of a Healthy Church. Very helpful overview of how a biblical ecclesiology (doctrine of the church) shapes the church’s day-to-day and week-to-week practice. The Kindle version is available for $3.49.
Books I’m looking forward to reading:
- Abraham Kuyper, Lectures on Calvinism. Probably Kuyper’s most famous quotation: “There is not a single square inch over the entirety of God’s creation of which Christ, who is Lord of all, does not say, ‘Mine!'” Available for Kindle for just $0.99.
- James Hamilton, God’s Glory in Salvation through Judgment: A Biblical Theology. I’ve wanted to dive into Hamilton’s work since I read Andy Naselli’s review of it. Andy said of it, “I profited immensely from both his big-picture connections and his more detailed exegetical observations. He impressively demonstrates how the whole Bible coheres.” The Kindle version is available for just $8.69.
- Gordon Fee and Douglas Stuart, How to Read the Bible Book by Book. Read and enjoyed their companion book How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth. (Our adult Sunday school class is working through it now.) I’m hopeful that this book will be equally helpful. Available on Kindle for $3.99.
- John Piper, Bloodlines: Race, Cross, and the Christian. The pdf of this book is available for free. You can watch Piper talk about the genesis of Bloodlines. Piper will join Tim Keller for a discussion of race and grace next Wednesday here in NYC. Registration is full, but you can watch it online.
- Monergism has a slate of free eBooks available for download. These include works by Jonathan Edwards (Christian Knowledge, A Treatise on Grace), John Bunyan (Pilgrim’s Progress, Saved by Grace, Grace Abounding, Holy War), George Smeaton (The Doctrine of the Atonement), John Calvin (Institutes of the Christian Religion), and Charles Spurgeon (All of Grace). These are all available in both Kindle and ePub form.
