Spreading the Joy of Calvinism this Reformation Day (One Free Ebook at a Time)

The Joy of Calvinism

The Reformation was about reclaiming a number of truths about Scripture and about God himself. Although the Reformation is commonly associated with Martin Luther and his 95 Theses, John Calvin, a pastor from Geneva, Switzerland, was also instrumental in the task. This mighty reformer is known for pointing believers to the majesty and sovereignty of God.

In celebration of Reformation Day, we’d like to share The Joy of Calvinism with you. In his book, Greg Forster encourages Calvinists and non-Calvinists alike to know God’s personal, unconditional, irresistible, and unbreakable love.

To download the free ebook of The Joy of Calvinism, click on the following format options.

  • Download ebook as a PDF file
  • Download ebook as an EPUB file [Best on Nook, Sony Reader, and Apple iBooks (iOS devices)]
  • Download ebook as a PRC (.MOBi compatible) file [Best on Kindle applications]

The download links will be live through the end of the day 10/31.

  1. The Kindle download comes as a PRC file, which is not what I’m expecting. Is that the right format?

  2. Thanks for your question, Phil, and sorry for the confusion. The .prc format is what is compatible with kindle products, and is comparable to a .mobi format.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions!

  3. So I have a Kindle, but I don’t know how to download files to it from a site like this. I’ve pretty much only gotten books from Amazon. Could you provide a little help? thanks.

  4. MJ, thanks for asking. There are a few ways that I know of…

    1) Instructions via http://blogkindle.com/kindle-faq/#ixzz2Au3bYPXJ

    1. Connect your Kindle to your computer via USB cable. After drivers are installed, you can see your Kindle device as a disk drive
    2. Navigate to “documents” folder on your Kindle device
    3. Copy your files in supported format there (PDF/TXT/MOBI/PRC/AZW)
    4. Safely eject the device

    2) Or you could upload it via the “Send to Kindle” program which can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/sendtokindle

  5. I believe every Kindle user has an email address for sending attachments to their reader. I’ve done that with PDFs and ebooks I have received outside the Amazon marketplace. They appear on my device as docs though, not as books.

  11. I downloaded the epub file for my iPad, but there is no file that is compatible for the ipad. I get a zip file with two folders (META-INF and OEBPS) and a “mimetype” file. I really would like to read the book. Any help?

  12. Thank you so much.

  13. For Kindle (e-ink): Follow the directions from Ted above.

    For iPad/iPhone/Android: You need to download an App to be able to read epubs. For Android, I recommend Aldiko. Here is a few different ebook readers for both devices. http://www.phonearena.com/news/10-e-book-reader-apps-for-Android-iPhone-and-iPad_id28562#1-Aldiko

    After you install that app, you can copy your ebook to your device using your computer. (iTunes, Windows Explorer, etc…)

  17. Thanks for all your encouragement everyone! I’m pleased to hear that you are enjoying the book. Also, I believe I responded to all your questions via email, but if I missed you or you have additional questions please don’t hesitate to ask!
