free book in Kindle format: “Applied Theology: And Other Things I Needed to Hear” by Mike Stimpson
Here is another
free* book in Kindle format, titled Applied Theology: And Other Things I Needed To Hear, by Mike Stimpson. Mike, an evangelical Christian, has written this book to help us think about living what we believe – in other words, applying our theology. He explains his purpose quite well:
Theology should not be abstract. We should live like it’s true. However, I discovered that there were several areas where my theology was mostly correct, but the truth was not “written on my heart”. I didn’t know how to live it out in my daily life.
Some examples: I believed that God was sovereign, but I got frustrated when stuck in traffic. I read that in God’s presence is fulness of joy, but I kept chasing after money and what it can buy. I knew that Jesus was preparing a place for me, but I acted as if my house would be eternal if I just maintained it well enough.
As I was trying to work through these issues, I didn’t find much to help me. (It may well exist; I just didn’t find it.) So I wrote this book to help me think through some of these issues. In essence, it is what I needed to hear.
If you have been pondering these matters – and a lot of us eventually do – give Applied Theology: And Other Things I Needed To Hear a try.
*Apparently there was a limit to the number of days this book could be free, so it is now listed at $2.99.
