Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims [Kindle Edition] Free for a limited time – Daniel R. Hyde

NOTE: This book is no longer free online but you can still purchase and read it for you benefit.

Every once I awhile I find out about free ebooks online. This one I found from Ligonier Ministries which is R.C Sproul’s ministries. I haven’t read the book yet but I think it is a good concept.  Below is a short descripton of the book and a link to download it for free, enjoy!


Who are these guys? That was the question the teenage Daniel R. Hyde posed to his father when he first encountered Reformed believers. With their unique beliefs and practices, these Christians didn t fit any of the categories in his mind.

Not so many years later, Hyde is now Rev. Daniel R. Hyde, a pastor of a Reformed church. Recognizing that many are on the outside looking in, just as he once was, he wrote Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims to explain what Reformed churches believe and why they structure their life and worship as they do.  In layman’s terms, Rev. Hyde sketches the historical roots of the Reformed churches, their scriptural and confessional basis, their key beliefs, and the ways in which those beliefs are put into practice. The result is a roadmap for those encountering the Reformed world for the first time and a primer for those who want to know more about their Reformed heritage.

Recommended Sites Lists Take 2

Some new sites have been added to the recommended list, I encourage you to look at them, I hope you find them useful.

The first to be added this time round is Desiring God.

Yes you may have heard of this one, Its full of John Piper stuff, sermons, video’s, books, articles and so on. The best part is its all free to download and there is a lot of it so browse around and enjoy.

Next up is Kids In Mind.

This is a secular site that we find helpful when considering what movie to watch. They provide a synopsis of movies as well as provide information on the content such as the amount of violence and language, if you want to be more careful in what you watch, this site will help you decide.

More? Ok. This site is called Abort73.

This site is set up for the purpose of tackling the issue of abortion. If you have questions or objections or are just interested to learn more this site will help you see things from the pro life argument.

Sermon Jams.

Sermon Jams are excerpts of sermons put to a beat, sounds strange but once you have listened to some you will appreciate it. Browse this site and you will find videos and other items.

Relevant Revolution.

This is also sermon jams site, sermons with beats behind it. There is a lot on this site. Under the ‘other audio’ link there are other albums or various genres that you can download for free.

The next site is to Ravi Zacharias Just Thinking sermons.

If you have never heard of him, I think he is worth listening to. He can use big words sometimes but We really enjoy him so we thought we would share him.

Lastly, Ravi Zacharias Let My People Think sermons.

Same goes for this one as above.

P.S The reason Ravi has two links is cause its for to different radio programs. Let us know what you think of these site 🙂

Recommended Sites

As you may have noticed at the right of our blog page there is a area called “Recommended Sites” These are websites I think you would find helpful and encourage you to visit. As new ones are added I will tell you why we like them. For now the ones listed are:

Brackenhurst Baptist Church, this is the church I attend. If you are looking for a church and live in the south of JHB please come visit! On the site you can find out more about the church and its beliefs and you can also download sermons of our preachers.

Come&Live! Music Ministry, this is a website for music lovers, it offers a lot of Christian music for free download. they have various genres available.

E-sword, this a a free bible study program. yes there are a few out there, this is our favourite one. It has a lot of bibles, commentaries and dictionaries at its disposal. If you want to grow personally it can prove helpful or if you need to prepare something to share with others this program is very helpful.

The Plumbline Collective -Removed, no longer available at present.

iSix5, here you can find good christian rap music, its grounded in scripture and free to download.

Finally, ZionworX. It is a powerful, professional yet easy-to-use song display program, designed to meet the needs of churches that want to use multimedia in worship. Programs similar to this program would be easy worship. This program is free and can be helpful for the professional touch.

Well that’s all for now guys, if you know any good sites you think I should add let me know. Otherwise check back soon for our next blog post.
