The other day, I read an interesting article on Logos Bible Software's blog. Ryan Lytton wrote an article (found here) about getting the equivalent of a Master's Degree in Biblical Studies for FREE. Yes, for FREE. I would encourage you to check out the article and the "Degree Program" that he put together. The rest of this post is a comment on his article.
Lytton is absolutely right when he points out that a degree program can be expensive. I am currently enrolled at Nazarene Theological Seminary, and my tuition cost is over $500 per credit hour. Considering that I will require more than 60 credits for my M. Div, the cost is going to be incredibly high. However, in my case, this may be worth it. I have a scholarship that will cover part of the cost, and have a plan to reduce the amount that I have to borrow in order to complete this degree program. However, this may not be the case for everyone, meaning that graduate-level education in Bible, Theology, and related d…
This is a follow-up to my post entitled "Free Christian Kindle Books". Here, I want to provide you with a list of free books from Google Play that you can download and read instantly. Between the books here and the books from the Kindle books post, you can be on your way to having a small Christian library. You will also notice that there is some overlap, most notably in the collection of books by D.L. Moody. If you want more free Christian books, you should check out my post on How To Start A Free Christian Library. The tips there will be beneficial to you as you seek to build your library.
As with the Free Christian Kindle Books post, I plan to update this periodically as I find new, reputable, free books. My standards for being included in this list is the same as it was for the Free Christian Kindle Books post. Without any further delay, I present to you a sample of the free Christian books you can find on Google Play Books.
I have previously written about how to build a free Christian library. In this post, I want to make a list of free Christian Kindle books that I have come across. These books are absolutely free, and can be accessed by anyone with access to Amazon or a Kindle device. I hope to periodically update this post to help maintain an accurate list of free books. This post will not contain a list of every single book. Rather, I will stick to authors that I know are reputable. This does not mean that I agree with every aspect of the individual's theology. Rather, it simply means that these individuals are respected Christian leaders, often from a different tradition than myself. Again, this list will be updated and grow as time goes on.
Hey everyone. I just wanted to drop a note to tell everyone how I started building a free Christian library using Logos Bible Software. I will tell you upfront, it may be slow getting your library started, but I want to show you how to use this software to get books for free.
The first thing to do to get started is to download the Logos software and order Logos 8 Basic Free. This will get you started with about 20 different books, all of them free of charge. Plus, the software is really useful, which is a bonus.
Where you really begin to build your library is by snagging the Logos free book of the month. Each month, Logos offers a free book (or two) to anyone with their software. Furthermore, they offer two or three related books at a HUGE discount. Of course, there is no obligation to buy anything in order to get the free book each month. After a few months, you will have a small library started. Logos is the easiest way to get a free library that I have found yet.
Recently, my fiance and I had the opportunity to go visit the Ark Encounter. This was a trip that I wanted to take for some time prior to our visit. While I have some theological disagreements with Ken Ham, he is an individual that I respect greatly. I have personally met people who have come to faith as the result of the ministry of Answers in Genesis, so I wanted to see what was going on with the Ark Encounter.
We arrived at the Ark at around 12:45. The first few minutes involved standing in line to present our reservation to one of the ticket-takers, then waiting on a bus to take us from the parking lot to the Answers Center, where our day really began.
By the time that we were dropped off by the bus, it was a few minutes after 1 in the afternoon. We only had about 6 hours before the site closed, so we had a choice to make: Ken Ham was slated to speak at the Answers Center at 2. We could listen to him, or we could take some extra time to view the Ark. We chose the latter.
