Free Friday! A Caution to Stir Up and Watch Against Sin

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

This faithful and affectionate appeal to conscience, was originally published on a half-sheet of copy paper, and being only printed on one side of the leaf was called a broadside; probably intended to hang up in the house, or to be pasted inside the cover of the family Bible.

Charles Doe gives the date 1685; but a copy of this rare sheet, clean and perfect as when first printed, was lately discovered in the Stowe Library, among a great number of single-sheet poems, songs, and proclamations; a memorandum on it, in the writing of Narcissus Luttrel, shews that he bought it for one penny, on the 8th of April, 1684. By the liberal permission of Mr. Pickering, of Piccadilly, the present owner of that extraordinary collection, I have been able accurately to correct the very numerous alterations and errors which abound in all the later editions.

Reader, whoever thou art, but especially the young, this unassuming poem is most worthy of being committed to memory. It is a striking detection of the devil’s sophistry. Strive, as you value your peace and happiness, to escape the depths of moral degradation and misery, by avoiding the FIRST overtures of sin. —

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $4.95 is A Caution to Stir Up and Watch Against Sin by John Bunyan.

A Wealth of Valuable Insight for Studying John & Acts

Praised as “one of the greatest living commentators on the New Testament,” Craig Keener has written two massive commentary sets, both highly praised and hailed as two of the best commentaries available on the Bible books of John and Acts. Both sets are now available for your Wordsearch library at our special intro price for a limited time.

Acts: An Exegetical Commentary

Acts: An Exegetical Commentary may be the largest and most thoroughly documented commentary on the book of Acts available. The four volumes are over 4,400 pages and cite more than 45,000 extrabiblical ancient references. An invaluable, exhaustive resource, Keener’s magnum opus will be the first commentary you’ll want to turn to when studying Acts.

Useful not only for the study of Acts but also early Christianity, this work sets Acts in its first-century context. Keener’s primary focus is on the social, historical, and rhetorical aspects of the text while examining how Acts compares with the events of history. He utilizes an unparalleled range of ancient sources and offers a wealth of fresh insights from his decades’ worth of extensive research.
