Zondervan has discounted 95 of their key eBooks on the Reformation and Reformed theology to recognize the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and Martin Luther's writing of his 95 Theses. See the deals here.
Along with being theologically sound, many of the eBooks in this sale are surprisingly practical. Why? One might be tempted to think about the core doctrines of Christianity from an ivory tower; it can be hard to see how doctrine meets one’s everyday life.
But the eBooks we highlight below—and many others in Zondervan’s 95 eBooks Sale—are written with the aim of inviting God to shape us through biblical doctrine.
Browse the shortlist below and don’t miss this special 95 eBooks Sale from our partner, Zondervan. The sale ends Sunday, November 5, at 11:59 p.m. ET. Sale prices apply to U.S. websites and some websites in the U.K., Australia, and Canada. Apologies to international readers.
1. Faith Alone—The Doctrine of Justification by Thomas Schreiner is 61 percent off.
Sale: $4.99. Original: $12.99
“The doctrine by which the church stands of falls—that’s how Luther described the importance of justification by faith alone,” R. Albert Mohler Jr. writes in his endorsement of Faith Alone. “Thomas Schreiner, one of the most clear-headed and biblically faithful New Testament scholars of our generation, has produced a compelling and careful defense of the doctrine of justification that readers will find both exegetically faithful and theologically enriching. This book will help the church in this generation to stand on solid ground.” Get Faith Alone.
Faith Alone is part of the 5 Solas Series, all of which are included in the 95 eBooks Sale. The other four volumes are:
- Grace Alone by Carl Trueman
- Christ Alone by Stephen Wellum
- God’s Word Alone by Matthew Barrett
- God’s Glory Alone by David VanDrunen
2. Center Church by Timothy Keller is 60 percent off.
Sale: $7.99. Original: $19.99
“In a fast-changing culture that seems alien to many Christians (just as Christians seem alien to many in the culture!),” D. A. Carson writes in his endorsement of Center Church, “it is easy for Christians to throw up their hands in despair and adopt a purely defensive mode. In this important book, Tim Keller unpacks the gospel and gently but firmly reminds us that it is nonnegotiable. At the same time, he enables us to think through how we can responsibly interact with the culture, how we can—indeed, must—appreciate good things within it, and how we can firmly and faithfully apply the gospel to it.” Get Center Church.
The new editions of Center Church are also in the 95 eBooks sale. Each of these volumes includes new contributions, plus responses by Tim Keller:
- Shaped by the Gospel (Part 1 of Center Church) with new contributions by Michael Horton and Dane Ortlund
- Loving the City (Part 2 of Center Church) with new contributions by Daniel Strange, Gabriel Salguero, and Andy Crouch
- Serving a Movement (Part 3 of Center Church) with new contributions by Tim Chester, Daniel Montgomery, Mike Cosper, and Alan Hirsch
3. Worship by the Book, D. A. Carson, ed., is 42 percent off.
“Worship by the Book deserves to be read by a wide audience,” Trevin Wax writes in his evaluation. “The authors [D. A. Carson, Timothy Keller, Mark Ashton, R. Kent Hughes] bring out the best of their traditions and are able to offer sound insights into the nature of biblical worship. Each contributor offers sound, practical advice for all who are involved in corporate worship. Ultimately, it is God’s glory that we must seek in our worship practice for it is in him that we delight.” Get the eBook.
4. Gaining by Losing by J. D. Greear is 70 percent off.
“An excellent book for small groups and church leaders to read and put into practice,” Matt Pierce writes in his TGC review of Gaining by Losing. “It includes numerous practical ideas for reaching your city and sending leaders out all over the world for the sake of the good news.” Pierce summarizes the book’s thesis: “Churches need to shift their focus from building up their own kingdom to building leaders who will be sent out to build up God’s kingdom.” This book will help you accomplish that. Get the eBook.
5. Preaching and Preachers (40th Anniversary Edition) by Martyn Lloyd-Jones is 60 percent off.
“I know of no other book on preaching that will motivate you to preach like this one will,” writes Kevin DeYoung, who edited the 40th anniversary edition. “Pastors will rediscover the romance of preaching. Christians in general will be better equipped to understand the preaching task and why it must have pride of place in the church’s ministry. I love this book because I believe God can use it to make better preachers and encourage better preaching. There is no more vital task. For as the pulpit goes, so goes the church.” Get the eBook.
6. Systematic Theology / Historical Theology Bundle by Wayne Grudem & Gregg Allison is 73 percent off.
Sale: $16.99. Original: $62.99
“Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology has been one of God’s great gifts to the contemporary church,” Justin Taylor writes. “Few would agree with every jot and tittle, but it has been a wonderfully doxological resource for thinking through what the Bible says about its major doctrines.”
The companion volume, Gregg Allison’s Historical Theology, “is an amazingly rich resource that traces the development of 32 major doctrines from the time of the New Testament to writers in the present day,” Grudem writes. “Therefore this book is the story of how the Holy Spirit has guided and protected the people of God over many centuries, and how he is still doing so today.”
