It's not one that Logos offers, so I'm not directing any business away from them by posting this. Thought some of you might want to pick this up while it's free. The Question That Never Goes Away (on the problem of evil).

I am getting an error message when I follow your link.  When I search for the Kindle book, Amazon shows the price as being $7.99?  Am I missing something?

Blessings,
Floyd

Some more checking.  I typed AMAZON's book code "B00EDP2YE8" into their search  box - and came up with your book at your price.  Don't know why the posted link did not work.

Blessings,

Wow, this really was free even on German Amazon! (Kindle deals usually aren't available for international customers, even if the account is located at Amazon.com) Thanks a lot, Rosie!

I don't have a Kindle, but I do have an iPad2 and am considering Amazon's free Kindle app.

I don't have a mac - but use the Kindle app on my Nook HD+ (it is Android based) and PCs (Desktop and Laptop) - all seems to go well.

My biggest complaint with the Kindle is that they only have one kind of highlighting - bright YELLOW.  The Nook (for Nook books) has three or four different colors; LOGOS, of course, has a whole library to choose from or you can create your own.

Floyd

Thanks, Floyd for this tip, and thanks Rosie for the heads-up!

I was on my iPad and got an error message too. I then closed my browser and went to Amazon my normal way and performed a search in the Kindle Store and it showed up as free. I was able to successfully download it then.

I have the app and have never used a Kindle. I appreciate the app a lot versus having to buy an actual Kindle.

This is only true for the Kindle app. On the Kindle Fire there are several colors (which makes me think they will update the app one day).

I would guess I was seeing remnants of my original search.  I did not shut down after trying Rosie's link.  I went straight from trying her link (ERROR)  to searching for the book (offered at a cost of $7.99) to trying Amazon's book ID (offered for $0.00).  That's my best guess.

Maybe on the current models, but on my original Kindle Fire and the Kindle apps, I only have one color - Bright YELLOW.  Don't have a newer one - my new tablet is the Nook HD+.

It looks like there are two kindle versions of the Yancey book. One is the Zondervan copy and that is not free. The other is from Creative Trust Digital (July 9, 2013) and is free.

Milford,

It's free my friend. So what have you got to loose? Give it a try. 

I have a kindle, but I also use the kindle app on my iPad. Works great.

Floyd on Kindle App for iPad there is four color highlighting options.  However when I open the same book on Kindle PC the highlights all show as yellow. Hoping they fix the PC app someday.  My Kindle is black/white only so of course no color highlights.

Floyd, that's weird. The link worked for me when I tested it. But I confess I did edit the link before posting to remove the "ref" (referral) stuff at the end, which is usually superfluous and just gives some kind of kickback to the referrer (which in my case would have been Facebook, as that's where I copied the link from, from a friend of mine having recommended the book).

Thanks for the heads up Rosie. It's free in the UK kindle store too!
