Get Three Books for FREE!

I really like to give things away for free. I also don’t like to make things complicated. So this is what I am going to do.

Comment on this post and your name will be put in to win not one, not two, but three of my books. These are the books that you will receive as eBooks:

Free BooksThe Watchtower and the Word: A response to the Jehovah’s Witness book, What Does the Bible Really Teach? My book breaks up JW beliefs into three categories and guides you on how to have productive conversations.

Genesis to Revelation: An introduction to the entire Bible. It provides brief introductions to every book of the Bible, suggested passages to read and reflection questions. Great for personal or small group study.

Experiencing God Without Losing Your Mind: God does not expect us to shut off our brain when we become Christians. This book looks at some of the tough questions such as the existence of God, nature of God in the Old Testament, resurrection of Jesus and Christianity among other religions.

I really want to give these three books as eBooks to someone. Just comment on this post by October 31, 2015 and your name will go into the draw.

  1. Hi Stephen, I’m Paulus Roi from Indonesia. I’m a blind person and now I concern in witnessing to Jehovah’s Witnesses. I’m interested to your first book “The Watchtower and the Word”. It must be very useful. 🙂

  2. Hi Stephen, thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to take part in this. Really appreciate it a lot! And to whoever will win, congratulations!

  3. Peter encourages us to have a ready defense (1 Pe 3:15,) as opposed to fear of those who would do harm for the good Christians do (1 Pe 3:13-14) (Schreiner, 2003: 173). Essential to this is the admission and declaration of Jesus’ lordship. It is to this that Peter called the Pentecost crowd. “This Jesus … God has declared both Lord and Christ” (Acts 2:36). Thus, we are to “continue to treat Christ as the holy one, fearing him instead of those who are harming them. Christ is already Lord in any case, but believers demonstrate and acknowledge his lordship in their lives by honoring his name (cf. Matt 6:9 (Schreiner, 2003: 173). We must devote our hearts to Jesus. When the heart is dedicated, the whole person is dedicated. This enables the Christian, protecting him to make him “safe from fear and is able to defend himself against his opponents” (Kistemaker and Hendriksen, 1953–2001: 134).

    However, the defensive readiness is not automatic with our declaration. We can “no longer be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ (Eph 4:14). Further, Paul tells us that we are to “attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ” (Eph 4:13). It is in this maturity that we are able to defend (ἀπολογία) our convictions regarding Jesus.

    Growing in knowledge comes not only in reading God’s word but also reading those who have dedicated themselves to the study of the word and whose writings defend the faith once delivered.

  4. I really wish to receive those three books, however, I hope and pray that the one who is really going to use the books to glorify God should be chosen to receive the books.
