After seeing http://community.logos.com/forums/t/68587.aspx and http://community.logos.com/forums/t/68597.aspx about current offerings, I thought it would with worth it to talk about a few older freebies for which we are thankful.

For me, probably the best has been http://vyrso.com/product/13325/death-and-afterlife-a-theological-introduction  I don't remember for sure when it was offered for free, but it is worth much more than that for the serious and grounded discussion of this issue.

Also good was http://vyrso.com/product/19086/you-lost-me-why-young-christians-are-leaving-churchand-rethinking-faith Something like this book should be read by all church leaders - even if you don't "like" what it has to say.

After all the Romance Novels, http://vyrso.com/product/14263/amish-prayers was a welcome addition.

Promising, but I have not read them are http://vyrso.com/product/20939/and-the-lamb-wins-why-the-end-of-the-world-is-really-good-news and the Chan works that were offered (and I guess are now Logos pre-pubs)

What have the rest of you enjoyed?

Peace, Ken!         *smile*                    Thanks for sharing!

                    Am just now downloading Death and Afterlife.  Missed that somehow when it was a freebie!         Sounds like something I'd like to "ponder and reflect on."    My wife and I made an Easter Commitment to share our Faith somewhat more proactively with a number of precious loved ones and acquaintences!        *smile*              Hopefully, this book will give us a bit of a "boost" in our thinking and outreach!

One of my very most enjoyable free books is this one:

The Constantine Codex

The Constantine Codex

Paul L. Maier

 

Harvard Professor Jonathan Weber is finally enjoying a season of peace when a shocking discovery thrusts him into the national spotlight once again. While touring monasteries in Greece, Jon and his wife Shannon—a seasoned archaeologist—uncover an ancient biblical manuscript containing the lost ending of Mark and an additional book of the Bible. If proven authentic, the codex could forever change the way the world views the holy Word of God. As Jon and Shannon work to validate their find, it soon becomes clear that there are powerful forces who don’t want the codex to go public. When it’s stolen en route to America, Jon and Shannon are swept into a deadly race to find the manuscript and confirm its authenticity before it’s lost forever.

Actually, have read many of Paul Maier's other writings and really appreciate him!    *smile*

I have the following link (which I got off the forum) set to open as a tab on Chrome whenever I open my browser. I can see at a glance if there are any free books I don't own. http://vyrso.com/products/search?q=&start=0&unlocked=no&sort=pricelo&pageSize=60

I get an email notice the moment any product goes to $0 on both vyrso and logos, incl notice of the free book of the month.

Here's one I'm currently reading:

("enjoy" reading is not quite the right word, as the events described are just too depressing...)

https://vyrso.com/product/17605/indescribable-encountering-the-glory-of-god-in-the-beauty-of-the-universe

Just one of the many freebies offered by Vyrso/Logos.

I agree on quite some of the books mantioned before. Apart from that I read http://vyrso.com/product/24084/christians-are-hate-filled-hypocrites-and-other-lies-youve-been-told-a-sociologist-shatters-myths-from-the-secular-and-christian-media

It was a good read and really gave me a fresh look at what is really happining with christianity in contrast5 to what everyone says is happening.

Only sad thing: it was really focussed on the states and I'm european, so in a totally different setting. But this makes it even better for those coming from the states
