FYI - This is a "sampler" eBook.

Actually, I am not quite sure. It might be a stand alone booklet. (Often these kinds of eBooks are a sample chapter out of a larger work).

Here is a screen shot of the TOC from Follow Me. (I grabbed it from the Vyrso website... I don't own it). I am still unsure about the overlap.

This resource has been offered for free in the past so I picked it up last time.

on page 2 it says:   "This book is adapted from Follow Me: A Call to Die, A Call to Live, copyright 2013 by David Platt."

65 pages - audio is 45 minutes. One of this year's resolutions is to complete a book every week. I can read this one during the week I start a real long book Smile

That is an admirable goal.

Cool  If that is what it takes to keep the numbers going . . .  the problem is i have 15 or so books laying around partially finished.

I'm finished starting books until I start finishing them. The goal is a way to encourage it.

Robert, if you are willing to also write brief reviews, feel free to contact me at "floydhj at outlook dot com" for details on how to get some of the newest books for free.  See http://pastor-patrick.blogspot.com for examples of what is available either as Kindle, etc., e-books or, in some cases, as paper books.  Sorry, no LOGOS books that I have seen.

Blessings,
Floyd

Don't feel so bad, it's happened to me before; especially when reading N.T. Wright.  Sometimes he makes me yell at his books the following words: "GET TO THE POINT!" LOL Stick out tongue He's good, but in small doses, though.  I'm still trying to finish Justification: God's Plan and Paul's Vision but sometimes too many stories in between.  Now imagine when I get to Paul: Fresh Perspectives and the other books in the Christian Origins series.  I already have a headache just thinking about it.  Anyway, good luck with your goals!

Floyd, writing reviews is something I've been contemplating for a while. I have a Wordpress blog reserved. Used to have a blogspot with one little post but looks like it is not there now. Writing . . .

Late last year I bought a set of 14 hard back books for $100. After 37 pages of the first volume (unfortunately not at one sitting) I thought to myself, "Self, has he said anything yet?"

Hi everyone,

Should I add this to my collection?  I am curious as I think a person should have a personal relationship with Jesus.

One of the chapter titles seems to suggest otherwise.  I honestly would not have time for anyone who disagreed.

I don't know. I am downloading it to see if it is just hyperbole or serious. 

I have a lunch date with my wife so it may be this afternoon before I have an answer.

I was wondering the same thing. I purposefully try to have a selection of many perspectives within my library and not just the ones that fit my view.

How do you know if you haven't read it? Huh?

Why not download it and read for yourself; after all, it's free.  If you don't like it you can always hide it or even return it.  The chapter in question may just have a "catchy title" and that's all.  I've seen some headings in other books that are kind of catchy but when I read them it's a total different thing.

Ps. I don't think he passes on everything he disagrees, because it's impossible to agree with everything every book you own says.  If he did so (pass on everything he disagrees on) he'd be 100% inconsistent (which we all are to some degree or another).
