— His virtues survive in it; while the foibles and faults of his actual life are for gotten. — T. L. Cuyler
- Unless otherwise noted, books are free but this can change without notice. Doublecheck.
- If you click a link and it doesn’t finish loading, just hit refresh. Sometimes the page just kind of hangs for some reason, I am not sure why.
- If I don’t say, “I loved this book” or “I read this,” Or something along those lines, I haven’t read the book. I haven’t read most of these. I’m just your book bird-dog, sniffing up potential good reads.
- I use various search methods to come up with titles. Then I read the blurbs, a couple of the best and worst of the reviews, and sometimes scan the free pages.
- I screen out so many this way that I end up *not* posting more books I’ve looked over than I post. And yet, still some duds slip through.

Contentiously Contending: A Word to Today’s Apologetics Emphasis by Anton Bosch- FREE as of this posting
Blurb: Are You Contending for the Faith in a Wrong Way?
Contentiously Contending is given as a clarion call to a growing empidemic of christians using social media, blogs and other online venues to create great harm to the testimony of Christ and of His servants. Though corrective words are needed to men publically Anton Bosch teaches us how to do this in the same way Christ and the Apostles did in love and humility. This book will help you to truly contend for the faith.
Broken Things by Andrew Boesharr, Free as of this posting. A novella, Christian fiction, the single 1 star review objected to the religious point of view being in the story.
A more favorable reader reviews: The description to this book was so skimpy I almost didn’t download it, but I remembered I had read Andrea Boeshaar before and liked her writing style. I’m so glad I did, because this was well worth reading. I loved the themes of redemption, forgiveness and second chances.
As a widow, a job comes up that takes Allison Drake Littenberg back to Chicago. She hopes she can mend fences with family members and friends, particularly Jack Callahan, the handsome cop she left back in 1969. Now, 30 years later, Jack is bitter from bad decisions and a nasty divorce. Even so, Allie prays God will use her own broken past to touch lives, as only He can.
All the main characters in the novel are wounded and carrying burdens and hurts. Yet, God weaves their lives in such a way they help each other, and healing takes place, even out of the bad.
There are several minor editing errors, something I’ve never seen in Andrea’s works before. However, there’s not so many, and they’re minor enough that they shouldn’t slow anyone too much. The biggest flaw is the book ends “too be continued.” As far as I can see, there’s not an e-version of the follow-up, PRECIOUS THINGS, only a print one. I hate when authors do this to try to ensure you’ll buy the next one. However, with the way BROKEN THINGS ends and the prologue to PRECIOUS THINGS included, the reader still has closure. The book is so good I would still highly recommend it. This is contemporary Christian romance at its best.
.99 for Kindle: God’s Word in Our Hands: The Bible Preserved for Us
Blurb: In this follow-up book to the landmark From the Mind of God to the Mind of Man, the Text and Translation Committee discusses the historical preservation of the Word of God. The solid facts of the process by which the Bible has come to its present form are explained in detail. The book includes textual criticism of the existing manuscripts and autographs, including the Textus Receptus, the Majority, Eclectic, and Minority texts, and the Masoretic Text. It also provides needed answers to the arguments of those who adhere to extreme or exclusive positions. This book is excellent for pastors, teachers, and laypersons alike. It will prove that all conservative versions are, without a doubt, translations of the plenary verbally inspired Word of God.
4.00 for Kindle: The Answer to the Atheist’s Handbook by Richard Wurmbrand
Blurb: Rev. Wurmbrand languished for fourteen years in Communist prisons. Though beaten and starved, he never broke. Having passed through hell on earth, this courageous Romanian pastor emerged with a burning love for God and his fellow man.
In this remarkable book, conceived while he was in solitary confinement, Wurmbrand demolishes the arguments for atheism as presented by the Soviet Academy of Science in its Atheist’s Handbook.
Throughout the Communist world, people who wanted to get ahead had to master The Atheist’s Handbook. Its teachings were drilled into children at school. But Wurmbrand demonstrates that the atheist creed leaves more questions unanswered than it professes to settle. On the positive side, he marshals the testimony of artists, musicians, writers, philosophers, scientists, statesmen, and saints–all of whom bear eloquent witness to the reality of God.
With the sparkling sense of humor that helped sustain him through unspeakable sufferings, Wurmbrand tells the story of God’s love for us in language anyone can understand. Is there a God? Does He care about man? Can we trust what the Scriptures tell us about Him? Yes, says Rev. Richard Wurmbrand, in a ringing affirmation of faith that comes from the heart–and from the head.
9.99 for Kindle- one of the most inspiring books I ever read. Eternity in Their Hearts (by the author of The Peace Child).
Subject to change without notice: Free Titles were free at the time I copied and pasted the links. But they don’t always stay free. The older, public domain books should, because they are all in the public domain, but sometimes….
Shameless money grubbing: I thought this was common knowledge, but it turns out it’s not- these are affiliate links. If you click on a free title and download it, I get….. nothing. If you click on a free title and while you are at Amazon also buy something else, I get….. something. Depending on what you buy, it will probably be somewhere between 4% and 7.5% of what you spend (I don’t get a percentage on penny sales) but I don’t pretend to understand how all of that side works. People have tried to explain, but they start with numbers and my ears buzz and I can’t hear.
Also, Swagbucks remains my favorite source for free Amazon gift cards. And if you haven’t joined, please click on the link and join so that I can keep getting free Amazon gift cards because I am still shameless. Of course, if you regularly shop on line, you can also sign up for ebates, and then always check ebates first, before you do your regular shopping. You can get quite a tidy sum back on the purchases you were going to make anyway, which is not a bad deal. And then you can use the money for books- or for other things.=)
Don’t have a Kindle? : You don’t have to have a Kindle to take advantage of these offers. You can read them on various free reading apps. I often read mine on my laptop if they are short enough books. Or I will start there to see if I want to finish it later or remove it from my Kindle already. If you’re curious, this is the Kindle I have, and I have used others and mine remains my favorite. Mine has Keyboard 3G, Free 3G + Wi-Fi and I don’t have commercial screensavers. Personally, I don’t like Kindle Fires because I am a crank like that.
If you like these free listings, you should also like my Facebook page, because I list other free titles there several times each week.
Yes, my Kindle gets slow because I stuff it too full since I have no sense of proportion when it comes to owning books, both real and virtual.
You can left click on a title on your Kindle and delete it from your device, while still keeping it in your list of titles at Amazon in case you want to add it back to your Kindle later without paying for the title all over again. Don’t delete it from folder at Amazon unless you want to rid yourself of it permanently. Now that I have my tricksy little new phone, I have added it to my list of devices to which I can download devices. Woot!
commentary sources: Most of the blurbs and book descriptions above are not mine, but come from reviews on Amazon’s page.
