Amazing Crossway E-Book Sale

by Jan 8, 2013Books1 comment

For one week, all of Crossway’s e-books are $5.99. Even the massive Kingdom Through Covenant, normally $31 even as an e-book, is just six bucks. (I also elected to pick up Sojourners and Strangers.)

I recommend spending some time looking through the long list of Crossway authors, Ctrl+clicking on the ones you like (so as to open them in new tabs), and then going through the resultant books looking for some you need.

I almost bought Histories and Fallacies by one of my all-time favs, Carl Trueman, but for three bucks more I can have it in native Kindle format and they’ll automatically cull my highlights onto a web page. I find that to be worth three additional dollars. As it is, these Crossway books can be read on the Kindle but the highlighting feature is not quite as convenient. They do save your books to your account, however, so make sure you keep your username and password!

Review: Why I Preach from the Received Text

Review: Why I Preach from the Received Text

Why I Preach from the Received Text is an anthology of personal testimonies more than it is a collection of careful arguments. It is not intended to be academic, and I see nothing necessarily wrong with that. But it does make countless properly academic claims, and...
