R. C. Sproul’s book, The Promises of God: Discovering the One Who Keeps His Word, is free for Nook and Kindle. I don’t know how long it will last. While we’re talking free ebooks, Monergism has over 150 free ebook, and they are all good.
Why Did God Allow Satan to Harm Job and His Family? Certainly, this is a question worth grappling with.

First, some free ebooks. Crossway is giving away Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor: The Life and Reflections of Tom Carson through October 12. Charis: God’s Scandalous Grace for Us is free today for Nook and Kindle. It looks really good.
In Same-Sex Marriage and the Supreme Court: What Now for the Church?, Russell Moore helpfully comments on yesterday’s Supreme Court move. How should Christians respond now that we know that same sex marriage will be the law of the land?
I appreciated Bleep! Why Christians Shouldn’t Cuss. Here is the short answer: “This is why Christians don’t cuss: we cherish the purpose for which God gave words.” This is at least worth thinking about.

I never get enough stuff read. I live in a literary Home Town Buffet. I just don’t have room in my life to consume it all. Here is an article about how busy people find time to read.

Christian Audio’s free book is Francis Schaeffer’s book How Should We Then Live. This is too good to pass up.
Should we tithe in this age of grace? Don Carson tackles this thorny question.
How does church conflict develop? We’ve all probably observed it at some point. My view is that it takes decades for a church to recover from serious conflict. Here is the typical path to tragic conflict. I pray Bowman continues to be spared from this disaster.
In this brief post, Ray Ortlund, using the book of Jonah, reminds his readers of the many resources God has to confront us. Thankfully, God does this.
Here is Tim Challies list of the greatest hymns. You probably won’t completely agree but your list might be very similar to his.

Yes, the 37-second clip is a rambling mess born from almost incomprehensible Biblical ignorance.
