Guest Blogging and Free eBooks

I'm a guest blogger over at Boats without Oars; my post is here.

In other online resources you should know about:

I don't have an eBook ready to go, but I know someone who is offering his eBook free today--and it should be of special interest to Lutherans. 

Pastor Paul Meier has written Praying the Gospels with Martin Luther:  Finding Freedom in Love, and today and tomorrow, he's offering it as a free download!

Here's a description:

"If Martin Luther preached today what he preached in 1525-1540, his friends would have to protect him again – but this time, from many Protestants.

Martin Luther’s scholastic writings provided the theological foundation for change in the institutional church. Yet his sermons reveal that love lies at the heart of biblical interpretation and application. Through the Word, he unlocked the chains of religious legalism that make living one’s religion less about obedience and more about love.

In what he considered one of his greatest works, a collection of sermons called the Church Postil, Luther applied biblical texts to the practice of daily living. Meier has written prayers based on the gospel sermons to teach the principles of his practical theology in a way that makes them accessible to the average person."

While I haven't read this book, I've read Meier's writing, and it's eloquent and useful.  I have no doubt you'll find similar writing in his current work.
