The Athlete's Bible: Undefeated is free again, probably for two or three days. It's a rather generic HCSB study Bible with some sports-related devotional stuff at the beginning. The differences between the various "Athlete's Bible" versions are all in the opening material. The book introductions and study materials are identical between them.

Christianbook
Amazon

Note that Christianbook is playing weird with free books again. At the moment, free books in your library can be read online, but not downloaded.

$13.19 Highly-Rated Kindle Book on Roles of Men and Woman Available FREE as a Pdf!

Title: Biblical Foundations for Manhood and Womanhood.
Format: Pdf.
Author(s): Wayne Grudem (editor)
Publisher: Crossway Books.
Pages: 304.
Ebook Rating/Number of Reviews (Amazon): 4.9 (8); 3.95 (96) at GoodReads.
Price: $0.00.
Price of Kindle Mobi at Amazon if available: $13.19.
Book Description (Amazon):
For years a debate has raged over how to define true masculinity and true femininity. While there is agreement that men and women share equally in the privilege of being made in God's image, some views of manhood and womanhood blur God-given gender distinctions.

Wayne Grudem assembled a team of distinguished writers to show how egalitarian views destroy God's ideal for your relationships, marriage, and life purposes. The contributors to this book include:

- John Piper, Pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota
- Bruce A. Ware, Senior Associate Dean of the School of Theology and Professor of Christian Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
-Richard W. Hove, Director of Campus Crusade for Christ at Duke University
-Daniel Doriani, Dean of the Faculty and Professor of New Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary
-Daniel R. Heimbach, Professor of Christian Ethics at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
-Peter Jones, Professor of New Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary in California

These writers explore key issues, including the interchangeability of male-female roles, the meaning of submission, and the historical novelty of egalitarian interpretations of Scripture. This book will demonstrate how some views of manhood and womanhood tamper with our understanding of God's character and why the extremes of male domination and feminism destroy the beauty of our sexual differences-differences that celebrate the excellence of men and women as God created us.

Answers in Genesis is giving away a free download of the Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye debate from two years ago. You have to go through the online store checkout process, but you don't need to create an account and you don't need a credit card. This is the "SD" (as opposed to the "HD") version, which is a 3GB DVD-quality mp4.

Here is a link to the deal page. There's a button on that page that will add the debate and a "discussion guide" to your cart and apply the DEBATE16 discount code.

FREE Pdf Set of Commentaries on the Entire Bible! Plus MORE FREE Pdf Books.

College Press, a publisher in some way affiliated with the Christian Church, offers on their website a free set of commentaries on the entire Bible.

Called the "Bible Study Textbook Series," these are solid, high-quality commentaries that College Press once regularly sold in a hardback dead-tree version. They apparently have been superseded by a new set of commentaries which are based upon the NIV, have different authors, and perhaps have other major changes. It seems that College Press digitized (to pdf format) the old commentaries and placed them on their website. They indicate that they did this as a courtesy to people who might be interested in them.

These commentaries were first published about 40-50 years ago. However, they are non-technical, so there is little information in them that has changed over that period of time. These commentaries are aimed at the people in the pew rather than clergy.

Among the titles listed on the webpage that I'm about to give you the URL for, are a number of other free high quality religious books, mainly on doctrinal subjects. Following that link I'm also giving you a link to a webpage with still more non-commentary books (I don't know why they're on a separate webpage).

Here are the links:

From Zondervan--A Recently Published Book on the Theology of Mark's Gospel. $7.99.

I hesitate to post this book. It is academic/technical. Too, it is above the interest level of the average church member. However, I'm sure that this book will be at the level of, and of interest to, more than one MobileReader.

With those concerns put aside, then, I am going ahead and posting it. For one reason, this recently published (2015) book looks to be excellent. I feel that it could become the standard work on the subject, and that last for many years. Too, it has an almost 5 average combined rating from Amazon, GoodReads, and ChristianBook. And, it is huge, approaching 700 pages in length. Finally, its markdown is big (73% from the digital list price) and the resulting price ($7.99) is great.

A Theology of Mark's Gospel: Good News about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God (Biblical Theology of the New Testament Series). Rated 5 stars, but from only 3 reviews at Amazon at the present moment; rated 4.60 at GoodReads, but from only 5 reviews; rated 5.0 at Christianbook, but from only 1 review. Print list price $44.99; digital list price $29.99; Kindle price now $7.99. Zondervan, publisher. 656 pages. http://www.amazon.com/Theology-Marks...dp/B00UF7WBR8/.

In addition to Amazon, I know that the ebook is available, for $7.99, at Christianbook as well. I'm sure that it is available for that price elsewhere, too.

Book Description
A Theology of Mark’s Gospel is the fourth volume in the BTNT series. This landmark textbook, written by leading New Testament scholar David E. Garland, thoroughly explores the theology of Mark’s Gospel. It both covers major Markan themes and also sets forth the distinctive contribution of Mark to the New Testament and the canon of Scripture, providing readers with an in-depth and holistic grasp of Markan theology in the larger context of the Bible. This substantive, evangelical treatment of Markan theology makes an ideal college- or seminary-level text.

For anyone that uses the Tecarta Bible software for Android or iOS, all of the study Bibles are on sale for either $5.99 or $7.99. Remember that if you don't already have the associated Bible translation, it's included with the study Bible (so the NIV New Century Bible comes with the NIV and the NKJV Study Bible comes with the NKJV).

If it's on your phone or tablet or whatever, just open the software and go to the list of resources. Sometimes it takes a minute to refresh prices from the network.

If you don't have it yet and would like to, it's here.

Devotional Ebook, Blessings of the Cross--FREE with Email Signup.

This book seems to be intended to give one devotion for each of the "40 days to Easter." I just found the book and don't know if the 40 days before Easter has already started, or when it will start, as the case may be.

In addition to several modern-day people, this ebook contains devotions from people of years gone by, like Charles Spurgeon.

I have the direct link to the pdf ebook. But the organization that is giving away this ebook, FaithGateway.com, wishes to offer this as a premium for people signing up for their email messages, which include "the free devotional e-newsletter, Devotionals Daily, offering daily devotions that will allow you to gain a more complete perspective on your personal relationship with Jesus and the power of his work in your life. The daily devotions culminate in readings for Passion Week and Easter Sunday, with inspiring messages and Biblical teachings from some of your favorite Christian authors!" So, I will honor their desire and direct you to the webpage where you can make your request.

Title: Blessings of the Cross.
Format: Pdf.
Author(s): Billy Graham, et al.
Publisher: J. Countryman (a division of Thomas Nelson, Inc.)
Pages: 48.
Ebook Rating/Number of Reviews (Amazon): N/A.
Price: $0.00.
Lowest Price at Amazon if available there: N/A.
Book Description:
Draw closer to our Savior in the days leading up to Easter with the free download of BLESSINGS OF THE CROSS devotional eBook (PDF) by Billy Graham, Max Lucado, Anne Graham Lotz, Stormie Omartian – the entire 48-page devotional eBook!

More than a simple retelling of the Easter story, this Easter devotional eBook will walk your through the Gospel accounts on the life of Jesus, and the difficult road he walked during the final weeks before His crucifixion.

FREE--Mission to Islam and Beyond: A Practical Theology of Mission. Pdf Format.

Although this book deals with missionary work, too, I am posting it because of its wealth of information on Islam.

This book was originally published by New Creations Publications, a publisher in Australia. It seems that it metamorphosed at some point into the New Creation Teaching Ministry. It's available now from their website, free, as a pdf.

This book is scarce today in physical form. It's listed at Amazon, but there are not even any third party sellers there who have it to sell. If you wanted a copy, and were not aware of the pdf on New Creation's website, the least that you probably could obtain a copy of the most recent edition for is $280.76 (http://www.bookfinder.com/search/?ac...and%2520beyond).

Title: Mission to Islam and Beyond: A Practical Theology of Mission.
Format: Pdf.
Author(s): Jens Christensen.
Publisher: New Creation Publications Inc.
Pages: xxii + 474.
Ebook Rating/Number of Reviews (Amazon): None.
Price: $0.00.
Lowest Price at Amazon if available there: N/A.
Book Description (From the Foreword by Geoffrey Bingham):
My wife, family and I lived and worked as missionaries of the Church Missionary Society (CMS) in Pakistan from the years 1957 to 1966. It was my privilege to know Bishop Jens Christensen, who was a Danish Lutheran Bishop working on the North-West Frontier . . . . My own knowledge of Jens Christensen was of a man who was a theologian of great calibre. I would say unhesitatingly that he towered above all others of us in the land. He was a man who worked most of his life amongst Muslims, suffering deep opposition to the point of great tragedy . . . . Some of us regard this particular book as of great theological and practical value for today. Few men have loved and understood the Muslim as did he. Few men have really understood the Christian gospel as did he. Those who really study this volume will find their theological knowledge increased, their insights deepened and their theology questioned . . . .
Comments: Originally entitled The Practical Approach to Muslims. This edition is the second edition (2001), the first having been published in 1977.

Approximately 25 Shepherd's Notes on Sale Now for Only 99 Cents Each!

I notice that several Shepherd's Notes have been put on sale for 99 cents each. I counted 25 of them at Amazon. I think that all, or at least most, of them retail for $4.99 each. So, this amounts to a sweet 80% discount on each of them.

There are Shepherd's Notes that deal with things other than books of the Bible. There is, for example, one on Augustine and one on Bible manners and customs. However, all of the Shepherd's Notes that are in this sale are about specific books of the Bible.

Most of the ones dealing with books of the Bible seem to hover around the 100-page number in length.

I have bought several Shepherd's Notes in the past, but to be honest, I have not used any of them. So, I can't really speak to the quality of them. However, they are written by different authors, which usually means that they will be uneven in quality. So, my recommendation is that you check reviews and ratings at such places as Amazon and GoodReads on each one that you may be interested in.

You can see a complete list here of the Shepherd Notes at Amazon in the Kindle mobi format. They are sorted by price, low to high, so the 99 cent ones will be at the beginning. I know that the same, or nearly the same, Shepherd's Notes are on sale at other places, including Vyrso. I noticed that Amazon also has one on Calvin's Institutes of Religion on sale for 99 cents.
