From the Interwebs (9/30/13)

For a limited time, Tullian Tchividjian’s book GLORIOUS RUIN: How Suffering Sets You Free is free at Amazon today. From the book cover:

This is not so much a book about why God allows suffering or even How we should approach suffering—it is a book about the tremendously liberating and gloriously counterintuitive truth of a God who suffers with you and for you. It is a book, in other words, about the kind of hope that takes the shape of a cross.

Chris Evans’ FRUIT AT WORK: Mixing Christian Virtues with Business is also free for a limited time.

Fruit at Work is for people at any level of employment who seek a spiritual life that resonates not only in their personal lives, but also in their work. Evans provides guidance for tough situations such as managerial decisions, the need for approval, patience with coworkers, job loss, distraction, team dynamics, and job satisfaction. Here is a new vision for work relationships—one based in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
