Weekly Ebook Specials: For the Pastor

In his new book, The Pastor’s Justification, Jared Wilson points out a common struggle of pastors:

The pastoral fraternity is an interesting one. We are a motley bunch of fools. Different personalities and tribes, different methodologies and styles, not to mention denominations and traditions and, of course, theologies. But there is something both lay elders and career elders have in common, something I’ve seen in the thirty-year senior pastor of a southern megachurch as well as the bivocational shepherd of a little, rural New England parish, the laid-back fauxhawked church planter and the fancy mousse-haried charismatic, and in nearly every pastor in between: a profound sense of insecurity for which the only antidote is the gospel.

This week’s ebook specials were picked especially for the pastors and church leaders out there. Each of these books points to the security found in Christ with practical, gospel-centered wisdom from your co-laborers.

To learn more about each title, click on the covers below to find them at Crossway.org. You’ll also find the ebooks at their reduced prices on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Bookshout, Christianbook.com, eChristian, ibooks (apple), Vyrso, or your participating independent bookstore’s site. Discounted prices available through 7/29/2013.*

Weekly Ebook Special: Books on Preaching

Loving, teaching, and rightly dividing the Word of God is every pastor’s privilege and responsibility. If a pastor understands what the Bible says about God, man, and the curse, about Christ and his substitutionary atonement, and about the call to repentance and sacrifice, he’ll develop and preach a sound theology. And sound theology is, in the words of J. Ligon Duncan, “essential to faithful pastoral ministry.”

This week’s ebook specials feature a selection of titles which encourage, teach, and model the preaching of God’s Word.
