We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Book Giveaway!!!!


A couple weeks ago I posted a list of books which I really, really would like to get into the hands of people who will read them rather than dumping them off at Goodwill to sell.  While ten books were taken, there are still many good ones seeking homes, and you will find the listing below, this time with some explanation as to subject matter.  I will delete titles as they are taken. All of these are paperback books, and most are still new condition because they were purchased for ministry (used books will be noted).

As with previous books I’ve given away, this offer is only for those in the U.S.A. — due to postage costs elsewhere!  You can comment on this post requesting it with your address (comments are moderated and your address will not be posted) or you can email me your address at jude3.gctwm@yahoo.com.  As always, I determine the “winner” by what comes in my inbox first, and I will notify you either by return email or by a comment on the post. (Be patient for a response; I’m not on the computer all the time.)


The Bible Book by Book: An Introduction to Bible Synthesis, by G. Coleman Luck. 253 pages, published by Moody.  Essentially an outline synopsis of every book of the Bible. This one was used by both me and my wife and has some markings and highlights.

The Stranger on the Road To Emmaus, by John R. Cross (6 copies). Goodseed International publications. A really good book for teaching the Gospel and the reason for it.  The premise is that the information in the book, the scripture passages examined, are most likely what Jesus was teaching the apostles on the road to Emmaus; teachings about Creation, the Fall, Noah, Abraham and Isaac, etc, all through the highlights of the Old Testament which point to Jesus. 285 pages, including appendices and endnotes.

Unveiling Islam, by Ergun and Emir Caner (5 copies). Kregel Publications, 256 pages including index and appendices. This is an excellent primer on the history, beliefs, and dangers of Islam.

The Case for Christ, by Lee Strobel. Zondervan Publishing, 280 pages including endnotes. A solid, yet easy-to-understand, examination of the Christian faith so as to demonstrate the truthfulness of it.

My Utmost For His Highest, by Oswald Chambers. Classic daily devotional.

More Than A Carpenter, by Josh McDowell. 129 page beginner’s apologetic. Classic

The Calvary Road, by Roy Hession. 131 pages, devotional on Christian living. Classic.

Why Wait? What You Need to Know About the Teen Sexuality Crisis, by Josh McDowell & Dick Day.  444 pages, including bibliography and endnotes.  This one is used, bought in 1992, with lots of highlighting.  I used it for high school Sunday school lessons when studying this particular topic.  It has some really, really good information.

The Case Against Pornography, by Donald E. Wildmon. 204 pages.  I picked this one up in 1995 so it is a wee bit dated when discussing how the advances in technology help the spread of pornography.  Good examination of the philosophy driving porn as well as the harmful effects. Suggestions on how to counter porn and protect against it.

Hi Alec,

Well, as you know, it's always been a part of my ministry. I'm just wishing I could get someone to take these!

Nel,

I will get the book to you but will be unable to do so this week. If there are any others you find interesting, let me know and I'll send them also. I will be off-line for about a week so I can't respond right away
