AUDIO BIBLES:

AUDIO BIBLES:

I’ve been asked recently about listening to the Bible. Yes, I’m a great fan of hearing the word!

These are the two versions that I listen to. The narration is clear and articulate, and does not intrude on the content of the text as some do.

Here's how I use them: I have The Message on my iPad, and I listen to it every day on my lunch hour, and often at bedtime when I’m trying to slow my brain down. And I meditate on what I'm listening: thinking about it, chewing it over. I’m on my third time though the whole Bible this year. 

I have the ESV on my phone, and I listen to it when I work in the garden or when I’m doing dishes or mowing the lawn. I’ve been through the whole Book, once here, but mostly I’m listening to the book of Hebrews over & over. Such wonderful, rich treasures in there! It's amazing how God uses both of these together in teaching me! 

Note that these are .mp3 format, not the normal Audio CD format. Many (but not all) newer CD players, both home units and especially car units, will play these. Or they’re perfect for loading on your mobile device (as I’ve done). They’ll play on your PC wonderfully (Windows Media Player or iTunes, or many others). They will not play in older CD players.

Narrated (no accent) by Stephen Johnson

Narrated (no accent) by Kelly Ryan Dolan 
Message MP3: http://nwp.link/Tue9WI
This version includes translator Eugene Petersons to the Bible, and to every book in the Bible. Nice addition! 



Here are Audio CD versions. These will play in ANY competent CD player. Note that there are WAY more discs, and therefore, they’re substantially more costly:

Narrated (in a British accent) by Max McLain.
                                                                            
Hmm. I can’t find an Audio CD version of the Message.

And He Healed Them All

FREE BOOK: And He Healed Them All  


When James Wolfer goes to visit his old friend Walter Schrader in a nursing home, he expects to find his former professor as depressed as the last time he visited. He also hopes to get a chance to talk to Jillian Moore, the attractive psychiatrist at the nursing home, about Walter's condition.

Instead of a dour Walter, mourning the disabilities left him by a recent stroke, James finds his friend excited to tell him about a compelling dream he had the previous night. In that dream, and many dreams that follow, Walter believes he is seeing a day in the life of Jesus. And it was a day in which a great multitude came to him, with a whole range of physical and spiritual ailments, and he healed them all.

For Walter this means a new reason to live. For both Jillian and James the dreams become a fascinating revelation of the unbounded grace and mercy of the one who perfectly reflected the image of a loving heavenly Father.

That revelation challenges James to break out of his self-sufficient life without church or the faith of his childhood. With Walter and Jillian by his side he has to navigate the meaning of the dreams as well as the condition of his own soul.

TWO BUCK BOOKS

I've been asked for some good resources for folks who are looking at homesteading, or at growing their own food.

You don't need to be a prepper to grow your own fruits, veggies, herbs, or seeds. Millions of folks are growing some or even all of their own food, saving costs, controlling quality, enjoying better flavor, or just appreciating not needing to depend on grocery stores for their food supply.

I've found a treasure trove of free and nearly-free books on the topic:

http://nwp.link/FreeGardenBooks

And here's a similar list if you want to join the thousands of homes (including in-town homes!) who want to grow chickens for eggs or meat:

http://nwp.link/FreeChickenBooks

Some of the books (like this Backyard Ponds book) are less relevant, but others should be really useful.

Most books will deal with one aspect of the whole picture; it will take a bunch of these free books to complete a competent education (or a competent library) on these topics.

Note that these lists will change, at least every day, and perhaps every hour. If you see something you like, you'll probably want to grab it quickly.

It is Finished: Why you can quit religion and trust in Jesus



Comment: Blaise is one of my favorites in the current crop of writers.

There is a generation who has come to the end of religion and let go of the pressure to "measure up" in their spiritual journey.

They have abandoned the idea of an angry God in the sky who is keeping a list of humanity's rights and wrongs and they are awakening to the picture of pure grace and love found in the Person and life of Jesus Christ.

Their freedom is found in their identity as sons and daughters of the Father who is Perfect Love, and their bliss is anchored in the the overwhelming reality of Christ's finished work for all mankind!

Blaise Foret has struck GOLD with this book "It Is Finished". This book is like a shot of espresso in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. It'll amp you up and get you flying high. With chapter titles like "The Day God Threw a Keg-Party", this book is sure to bring a smile to your face and cheer up your grumpy theology.

The Mother Heart of God: Unveiling the Mystery of the Father's Maternal Love

TWO BUCK BOOK: The Mother Heart of God      
bu Trudy Beyak

TWO BUCK BOOK: http://nwp.link/1pE11ZL

Why don't we talk about God's maternal love? Searching for answers, Trudy Beyak, an award-winning journalist, interviewed 50 global leaders of faith: Ruth Graham, Ravi Zacharias, Raymond Damadian, MRI inventor; J.I. Packer, editor, ESV Bible; Gary Chapman, Tony Campolo, Luci Swindoll, Brennan Manning, Pope Benedict XV1 and many others.

Ruth Graham says this: "When God created men and women to be like Him, women are half the picture." And, Ravi Zacharias agrees, because, according to the Bible, they reflect the "maternal personality of God's love." When no one cares, and you're all alone, God comes close and comforts your soul, as a mother comforts a child [Isaiah 66:13].

What a gift, then, it is to be a mother! The "maternal instinct" to nurture others -corresponds to the Creator, the God of all comfort. Women will no longer need to ask: Dear Lord: Who am I? Discover "50 exclusive interviews" that will transform a woman's life. And there's much more. The Mother Heart of God is a spiritual journey, a personal invitation to every man and woman to experience the love that brings hope and healing to every soul.

Book of the Year: The Lifestyle of a Prophet: A 21-Day Journey to Embracing Your Calling

BOOK OF THE YEAR: The Lifestyle of a Prophet
by James W. Goll, with a foreword by John Sandford

(not a free book)

The Lifestyle of a Prophet, was selected as the BEST CHARISMATIC BOOK of the YEAR globally by the International Christian Retailers Association.

Internationally respected prophet and bestselling author James W. Goll offers a readable, practical approach to the prophetic gifting. Centered around a unique, hands-on 21-day guide, he helps believers develop the intimacy with God essential to hearing his voice clearly and correctly--and then proclaiming his words faithfully.

Through illustrations from his own life and those of John, Daniel, and Ezekiel, Goll exposes common misconceptions, the successes and failures of gifted people throughout church history, and wisdom from the trenches of the prophetic. Devotional prayers and reflection questions follow each chapter. A must-have resource for those in prophetic ministry and all who work with them.

"If your heart says, 'Not my will, but Yours be done,' you will receive much as you read these pages."--James W. Goll

Join respected prophetic leader James W. Goll for an incredible journey into the heart of the prophetic calling. This unique, hands-on 21-day guide will help you develop the intimacy with God essential to hearing His voice clearly. Reflection questions, devotional prayers and practical applications will help you proclaim His words faithfully--and step boldly into your calling.

"What an intelligent and insightful book on prophetic calling--on understanding what that is and what it really means if you believe you are called to witness and serve in a prophetic way. This three week journey really helps you consider what the prophetic is and in some ways helps you realize it may not be what you thought it was. It works through various biblical characters and situations and references the differences--and similarities of those with prophetic callings--that can be found in the Bible. What's so good about it though is that it starts with intimacy, it highlights prayer and relationship before it moves onto wisdom and finally revelation.


It also works hard to ground the ideas into the reality of today and the situations we find ourselves in, so that we can make an informed response to living with and having the lifestyle of a prophet. For anyone interested in the prophetic and in leadership this would make a good study to undertake. It is very well written and has good questions for reflection at the end of each chapter. Though designed for the individual I could see this as a useful tool for those involved with, or setting up, a team based around prophetic prayer or healing as much of the material does have a crossover element to the healing ministries too."

Who Is Jesus?

FREE BOOK: Who Is Jesus?  


No person in history has provoked such widely divergent assessments as Jesus of Nazareth. Some say He was a cunning fraud, while others say He must have been out of His mind. In many cases His story is altered to suit the fancies of those seeking to make Him an ally for a host of militant causes.

However, as Dr. R. C. Sproul points out in this Crucial Questions booklet, there is compelling evidence that Jesus was something more-that He was, in fact, God in the flesh. By wrestling with the biblical titles for Jesus and the accounts of His life and ministry, Dr. Sproul unfolds the scriptural portrait of Jesus, the Son of God.


What Can I Do With My Guilt?



Dr. R.C. Sproul has often asked unbelievers who deny their need for a Savior, “What do you do with your guilt?” The question often breaks through sinful complacency, because feelings of guilt over sin are common. Unbelievers may ignore their sense of guilt, rationalize it, or desensitize it, but it is there. It points to the fact that all people are objectively guilty before God.

So what must we do with our guilt? In this Crucial Questions booklet, Dr. Sproul shows how God can use our feelings of guilt to reveal our true guilt in His sight. He then prescribes the only remedy—the forgiveness that God has provided through Jesus Christ. Here is solid biblical counsel for those who hear the accusations of their consciences.

Jesus, In His Own Words


ONE BUCK BOOK: Jesus, In His Own Words  


(Note: I studied under this guy for a bit. He knows his stuff!)

What if Jesus were to tell you in first person about His time on earth? “You are about to read an account of the life and ministry of Jesus that combines all four gospels into a single narrative and allows Jesus himself to tell us the story,” writes veteran Bible translator Robert H. Mounce at the beginning of Jesus, In His Own Words.

“Although the style is contemporary, the desire is to clarify the meaning of the original text rather than to impress the reader with clever phrases.” To that end, Mounce’s more conversational interpretation of the Gospels allows the reader to “be there” during Christ’s birth and boyhood, at his baptism by John the Baptist, on the hillside when he spoke about the kingdom, amidst the miracle workings, and so on.

His approach makes the words fresh to longtime believers and inviting to those seeking Scripture for the first time. Complementing the prosaic text, a full index of people, places, verse units, basic themes, and paragraph headings is also included.

The Risk Factor: Crossing the Chicken Line Into Your Supernatural Destiny

FREE BOOK: The Risk Factor  
By Kevin Dedmon, Chad Dedmon, with forewords by Bill Johnson and Heidi Baker   


The Risk Factor: Crossing the Chicken Line Into Your Supernatural Destiny was written by a father-son team who discuss the dynamics and importance of risk as a Kingdom lifestyle of faith that rockets believers into the supernatural—and into fulfilling their unique God-given destinies.

Through many down-to-earth and inspiring true stories, the Dedmons raise the standard for what is attainable for all believers—including healing. You are challenged to embrace and celebrate risk and encouraged to take steps to cross your own “chicken line” to see what God will do through you as a world changer and history maker.

What is risk?

R – Radical. There is nothing safe about taking a risk.
I  – Individual. No one can take risk for you.
S  – Sensible. Risk is a key core value of the Kingdom.
K – Kinetic. We cannot just talk about risk—we must take action!


Filled with practical tools as well as theological foundations for living a lifestyle of risk, you will be inspired and motivated to step into new levels of risk—propelling you into supernatural living of joy and success.

CS Lewis: A Life Inspired

ONE BUCK BOOK: CS Lewis: A Life Inspired 


Explore the life of the renowned author of The Chronicles of Narnia and his views on faith, reason, doubt, and love. This enlightening biography examines Lewis’s own rigorous debates about the Christian story and its place in our imperfect lives.

A man of reason and vigorous discourse, and a renowned professor of literature and philosophy, C.S. Lewis, always “Jack” to family and friends, never shied from intellectual debate, and through his written works encouraged others to wrestle with the difficult questions of faith.

A master of visual illustration and allegory, Lewis wrote with the intuitive understanding that his readers wrestled with the same questions about the Christian story, about pain, suffering, and notions of Heaven and Hell, as he himself had wrestled. He also understood that others found reason and imagination to be incompatible aspects of an understanding of God and the universe.


This book did an excellent job of showing how Lewis' early life, particularly his early Atheistic views, shaped his conversion to Christianity. I think few casual Lewis fans know about his journey from adamant Atheist to Christian apologist, and how it influenced his writing. Great read!

The Repurposed and Upcycled Life: When God Turns Trash to Treasure

Vertical Church: What Every Heart Longs for. What Every Church Can Be.

FREE BOOK: Vertical Church 


An emergency call, and I rush from my coziness into the dark community where the police have requested a chaplain. Arriving in minutes, I find the family imploding with grief having just discovered their son hanging in the garage. In a moment of unshakable pain, he jumped off the ladder and into eternity. And I will never shake the look in their eyes when I asked why he hadn’t called a church. “Why would he do that?” Across town, a pool of tears on my kitchen table as an out of town guest feels the weight of his infidelity, despairing that his famished soul finds no refuge and that he has to board a plane to feel fellowship. “Has your church tried to help you?” And the Christian leader confesses he hasn’t been to church in years.

Infighting, backbiting, heartbreaking, frustrating ... church.

Though exceptions do exist, the reality is that church in America is failing one life at a time. Somewhere between pathetically predictable and shamefully entertaining, sadly sentimental and rarely authentic, church has become worst of all ... godless.

Vertical Church points to a new day where God is the seeker, and we are the ones found. In Vertical Church God shows up, and that changes everything.

If you want to experience God as you never have before and witness His hand at work, if you want to wake up to the first thought, “Thank God it’s Sunday,” if you’re ready to feel your heart beat faster as you drive to your place of worship ... then devour and digest the lessons of Vertical Church.



This Day We Fight!: Breaking the Bondage of a Passive Spirit



Author Francis Frangipane tells us that the call of God is a call to war. An enemy lurks at our gates, and one of his first lines of attack is often a spirit of heaviness, which causes Christians to become passive.

As a result, we do not pray with authority against the enemy, rendering themselves defenseless in the unfolding battle.

Backed by experience and delivered with passion, Frangipane's timeless message equips believers to receive a fresh anointing from the Holy Spirit--an anointing that will activate the "war mode" in their hearts.

We stand at the cusp of a major spiritual awakening in our land, and this is no time for surrender. No, This Day We Fight!

If I were going to buy a physical Bible now, this is probably the one I’d get. I’ve been really enjoying the ESV recently, and I love cross references. (I refuse to use a “study Bible” for my daily reading Bible: I want to hear from God, not from an editor or commentator.)

The ESV Bible is equipped with an enhanced navigation feature. Kindle's index feature can be used to navigate directly to any verse. This feature is not supported on the Kindle 1 or any Kindle applications.

Signs, Wonders and a Baptist Preacher: How Jesus Flipped My World Upside Down

By Chad Norris, with a foreword by Jack Deere


Baptist Preacher Takes the "Weird" Out of the Supernatural

Demonstrating humor, candor, and personal vulnerability, this Southern Baptist preacher offers an entertaining, non-religious look at the Holy Spirit. He shares transparently, recounting his own history of depression and panic attacks until Jesus rescued him and showed him how to do the works of the Father. As Norris explains, "I had no paradigm for that." Then he challenges readers to engage with the supernatural.

Even though Jesus said we will do even greater things than he did, we don't. Norris's engaging narrative style lowers readers' defenses and opens their minds to the idea that these "greater things" are more attainable than they think. Because we are loved more than we imagine, says Norris, we are more capable of doing the Father's works than we have ever considered.

(I love it: Chad Norris’s story is a whole lot like Jack Deere’s own story! God's doing it again for this generation!)

Red Letter Revolution: What If Jesus Really Meant What He Said?

ONE BUCK BOOK:  Red Letter Revolution


For all the Christians facing conflict between Jesus’ words and their own lives, for all the non-Christians who feel they rarely see Jesus’ commands reflected in the choices of his followers, Red Letter Revolution is a blueprint for a new kind of Christianity, one consciously centered on the words of Jesus, the Bible’s “red letters.”

Framed as a captivating dialogue between Shane Claiborne, a progressive young evangelical, and Tony Campolo, a seasoned pastor and professor of sociology, Red Letter Revolution is a life-altering manifesto for skeptics and Christians alike. It is a call to a lifestyle that considers first and foremost Jesus’ explicit, liberating message of sacrificial love.

Shane and Tony candidly bring the words of Jesus to bear on contemporary issues of violence, community, Islam, hell, sexuality, civil disobedience, and twenty other critical topics for people of faith and conscience today. The resulting conversations reveal the striking truth that Christians guided unequivocally by the words of Jesus will frequently reach conclusions utterly contrary to those of mainstream evangelical Christianity.

If the Jesus who speaks to you through the Gospels is at odds with the Christian culture you know, if you have ever wanted to stand up and say, “I love Jesus, but that’s not me,” Red Letter Revolution will prove that you are not alone—you may have been a Red Letter Christian all along.
