Ultimate Bundle: 87 Quality E-Books for Less Than a Tank of Gas?
Why This Craze In Christian Blogging Is Cool
In the blogging world, especially in the “Christian Living” blogging world, there is this new craze called “ultimate bundles,” where different companies unite to put together these insanely discounted bundles of books, music, or movies, etc. tailor made for the blogosphere. Bloggers then find bundles they love and pitch them to their readers as an affiliate.
This is the first one I’ve ever wanted to share with our readers because it is a doozy. This whole bundle thing really is kind of cool. You basically get unlimited access to an insanely huge library with quality e-books for a really low price.
It comes at a good time too. It’s safe to say that there’s an epidemic of anxiety in our world. Marriages struggle to stay healthy in America, and couples are looking for a life preserver. People are fighting to hold on financially or they’re venturing into the frightening waters of self-employment or small businesses — and they need business/financial advice.
And don’t even get me started on parenting. Yikes. What a challenging world for parents who want to raise their kids with solid Christian values. So parents are looking for help, encouragement, and wisdom.
Somewhere in between all of this, spiritual burnout hits. So many Christians are feeling their roots drying up. And so many Christians — and this really kills me — have never had the joy of discovering the Christian classics like Spurgeon or John Wesley or A.W. Tozer to refresh their spiritual weariness.
For the reasons above, this bundle caught my eye. Here’s an excerpt from its press copy:
…you know that authors like Gary Chapman, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Tony Evans and Ray Comfort have lots to offer, but which of their books should you consider and where can you find them? Or how about those stalwart classics by D.L. Moody, Jonathon Edwards, John Wesley or Spurgeon, Calvin, Finney and Tozer?You want to invest in yourself and build yourself back up in the faith, taking strength and courage from those who have gone on before you and won the very battles you are now facing.
But the time it takes to find all these resources and the money it takes to build your library can all seem more than a little too much. You want the help, but time and money keep it all just one-step out of reach.
And then, of course, that’s where they pitch the bundle, and it sparkles with awesomeness. When I looked into the details, it really was kind of jaw-dropping: 87 e-books — well-known, critically acclaimed Christian books too — for $35 (at least until November 10, after which I’m assuming the price goes up — don’t know by how much though).
Here’s a few of the 87 books included in this bundle that stuck out to me as I was skimming through them:
- THE BIBLE INCORPORATED IN YOUR LIFE, JOB AND BUSINESS by Micheal Q. Pink
- THE WAY OF THE MASTER by Kirk Cameron
- THE ART OF STORYTELLING by John Walsh
- ABSOLUTE SURRENDER by Andrew Murray
- MANAGING MONEY GOD’S WAY by Bob Lotich
- ALL OF GRACE by Charles Spurgeon
- FELLOWSHIP OF THE BURNING HEART by A.W. Tozer
- EXTRAORDINARY GRACE by Gary Chapman
- NAMES OF GOD by Nathan Stone
- POWER, PASSION & PRAYER by Charles Finney
- ONE KINGDOM UNDER GOD by Tony Evans
- SAYING YES TO GOD AS A FAMILY by Kristen Welch
- THE PRODIGY PROJECT a novel by Doug Flanders
- 100 WAYS TO LOVE YOUR WIFE by Matthew L. Jacobson
- TEACHING YOUR CHILD TO PRAY by Rick Osborne
- HOW TO KNOW GOD EXISTS by Ray Comfort
Now I definitely get why “ultimate bundles” are so popular right now in the blogosphere. They’re kind of like the Costco of the Internet.
This particular bundle had me at Tozer. My wife’s an infamous bargain hunter — she’s the one who pointed me to this — and even she’s in awe of it. Apparently, bundles must always — ALWAYS (it’s some kind of rule) — have “bonus items” as well. This one has free greeting cards that Dayspring sends you, a free physical book of your choice from Tyndale publishing, a free digital stock image from ChristianPhotoShops.com, and a few other things.
You can buy this bundle here. Go bundles! Why do I suddenly have an urge to go to Costco right now and buy something en masse?
