Weekly Free Book – The Mourner’s Comforter

Every Friday we offer a free book until the following Monday with no strings attached.

This is just our way of saying thank you for being a part of the Wordsearch family!

Today’s free book, usually $9.95, is The Mourner’s Comforter by Charles Spurgeon.

The preacher giving himself up wholly to his preaching, and discharging his work in the power of the Spirit, is to aim at the results which are mentioned in the text. He must pity broken hearts and endeavor to bind them up. He must remember the Lord’s prisoners and seek their release.

If he does not aim at these objects he forgets the design of true preaching, which is not for preaching’s sake, much less for the preacher’s sake; but all for the sake of the people of God, many of whom Satan holds in bondage under sin. He must never reckon that his preaching has succeeded unless he continually hears the joyful cries of liberated captives and the songs of mourners comforted.”

How Christianity Shapes Our World

How does the Christian faith influence our understanding of culture, literature, philosophy, government, beauty, art, or work? How does the Christian intellectual tradition help us understand truth? How does the Christian intellectual tradition shape our approach to education?

In a secular culture that is, at best, indifferent to the Christian faith, the Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition Series explores how the Christian faith shapes how we live and think in society throughout history and what that means for us today.

The Great Tradition of Christian Thought

Each of the 15 volumes in the Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition Series explores issues and ideas surrounding an academic discipline.
Some of the examples include Education, History, Literature, Political Thought, Natural Sciences, and Ethics and Moral Reasoning.
The authors highlight how Christian thought influenced each area, its significance for serving both church and society, and its application for Christian thinking and learning.

Weekly Free Book – Four Words for Tough Times

Every Friday we offer a free book until the following Monday with no strings attached. This is just our way of saying thank you for being a part of the Wordsearch family!

Today’s free book, usually $12.00, is Four Words for Tough Times: Have Faith in God! by Arthur T. Jones.

Company downsizing, financial problems, bankruptcy, domestic violence, crime, divorce, psychological and physical abuse, continuing racism, malicious militias, alcohol and drug abuse, illness, poor educational systems, and uncontrollable children are among the problems that members of your church face daily. Coming to the pastors and members or our counseling ministry for help with these problems, they constantly remind us that Christians are not exempt from the problems encountered by the rest of society.

However, Christians have a way out. They have the assurance that God is working all things together for their good (Romans 8:28). Sometimes however, in the midst of the storms of life, Christians forget that their God is always with them.
