Free E-Books at Monergism

Monergism Books is currently offering several e-books for free.

Some of the titles I'm looking forward to checking out include:

God's CanonGod's Canon - New! - by Steve Hays
Available in Kindle .mobi and ePub formats
Traditionally, the case for the Protestant canon has emphasized external lines of evidence (e.g. Josephus, church fathers), as well as the witness of the Spirit. And that remains a valid line of evidence.

More recently, however, many scholars have been giving close attention to the intertextuality of Scripture as well as the paratextuality of the canon. That's a neglected line of internal evidence for the canon of Scripture. And it dovetails with the self-witness of Scripture.

The chapters in this book emphasize the self-attestation of Scripture to the canon of Scripture via intratextual, intertextual, and paratextual lines of evidence. The Bible is far more self-contained and self-referential than first meets the eye.

To the degree that the canon of Scripture is grounded in the self-witness of Scripture, we have not only a canon of infallible books, but an infallible canon–where one infallible book implicitly bears witness to another (or other) infallible book(s), through a tapestry of allusions, foreshadowings, and other types of cross-attestation.

on GraceA Treatise on Grace
by Jonathan Edwards
Available in Kindle .mobi and ePub formats

Chapter I: [Shewing] That Common and Saving Grace Differ, Not Only in Degree, But in Nature and Kind.
Chapter II: Shewing Wherein All Saving Grace Does Summarily Consist.
Chapter III: Shewing How a Principle of Grace is From the Spirit of God.

All of GraceAll of Grace
by C. H. Spurgeon

Available in Kindle .mobi and ePub formats
Here is my fountain, and here is my cup: find fault if you please; but do drink of the water of life. I only care for this. I had rather bless the soul of the poorest crossing- sweeper, or rag-gatherer, than please a prince of the blood, and fail to convert him to God.


The Reformed FaithThe Reformed Faith
by Loraine Boettner
Available in ePub and Kindle .Mobi formats.
This clear introduction to Reformed theology offers a brief outline and exposition of the main teachings related to God’s sovereignty in salvation.
The purpose of this booklet is to set forth, in plain language and in terms easily understood, the basic differences between the Calvinistic and the Arminian system to theology, and to show what the Bible teaches concerning these subjects.

Consider JesusConsider Jesus: Thoughts for Daily Duty, Service, and Suffering
by Octavius Winslow
a 31-Day Devotional
Available in ePub and Kindle .Mobi formats.
"Consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess."
–Hebrews 3:1




RegenerationRegeneration Or the New Birth
by A.W. Pink
Available here in both Kindle .mobi and ePub formats.
"... to mortify the lusts of the flesh, to be crucified unto the world, to overcome the Devil, to die daily unto sin and live unto righteousness, to be meek and lowly in heart, trustful and obedient, pious and patient, faithful and uncompromising, loving and gentle; in a word, to be a Christian, to be Christ-like, is a task far, far beyond the poor resources of fallen human nature."

Saving FaithSaving Faith
by A. W. Pink

Available here in both Kindle .mobi and ePub formats.
Saving faith is a genuine coming to Christ (Matt. 11:28;John 6:37, etc.). But let us take care that we do not miss the clear and inevitable implication of this term. If I say "I come to the U.S.A." then I necessarily indicate that I left some other country to get here. Thus it is in "coming" to Christ; something has to be left. Coming to Christ not only involves the abandoning of every false object of confidence, it also includes and entails the forsaking of all other competitors for my heart.

Alive or Dead?Alive or Dead?
by J. C. Ryle
Available here in both Kindle .mobi and ePub formats.
"And He has made you alive, who were once dead in trespasses and sins." Ephesians 2:1
The question which forms the title of this paper deserves a thousand thoughts. I invite every reader of this volume to look at it carefully, and ponder it well. Search your own heart, and do not lay down this book without solemn self-inquiry. Are you among the living, or among the dead?


vantilDefending the Faith
Cornelius Van Til
Available in Kindle .mobi and ePub formats
A six-part series on which appeared in Torch and Trumpet in 1951 and 1952. In this series of articles our concern will be to discover some of the main features of one of the Reformed approaches in Christian Apologetics.


Augustine Anti - Pelagian Writings
by St. Augustine
Available in Kindle .mobi and ePub formats
Preface by B. B. Warfield. Includes among other writings, "On the Spirit and the Letter", "On Nature and Grace", " On the Proceedings of Pelagius", "On the Grace of Christ and Original Sin" , "Of Grace and Free Will". "On Rebuke and Grace". "On the Predestination of the Saints", "On the Gift of Perseverance"
"The grace offered by the Lord is not merely one which every individual has full liberty of choosing to receive or reject, but a grace which produces in the heart both choice and will: so that all the good works which follow after are its fruit and effect; the only will which yields obedience being the will which grace itself has made." - Augustine

Yes, as a matter of fact! (well sort of). You can get Kindle for your PC (or MAC) for free at Amazon. Then you can read any Kindle book on your PC if you want.

Here's a link to it:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000426311

The other really cool thing is that your friends can also share their Kindle books with you. For instance, I could loan you one of my Kindle books for a certain amount of time, and then when you're done, you click a button and I get it back in my Kindle library. Pretty cool.:)
