Two Free E-Books: Amish Cookbook & Christian Novel, The Homecoming

O

ur local newspaper carries a column called, The Amish Cook which I enjoy reading. I am also on their e-mail list.   It’s the column’s 20th anniversary on the 15th of this month and in honor of that, they are giving away a PDF email copy of the 192 page The Original Amish Cookbook, by Elizabeth Coblentz, the first Amish writer of the column, from 1991 – 2002.  If you are interested in it, just go to dropbox.com and login as: orders@oasisnewsfeatures.com.  Use the password “amish15“.  Click on the link that says the Original Amish Cook Cookbook to download your copy!  The material is copyrighted so unauthorized use or republication in any form is not permitted.

Also, a Christian novel by a pastor of 25 years, Dan Walsh, has a free e-book on Amazon, The Homecoming.

    I liked this book and I am free to say so, too. First of all it’s just a good read. Tome’s style is easygoing, conversational, and makes you feel as though you and he are engaged in a conversation. Like some other reviewers, I think the first couple of chapters could use some help, but keep going. It gets better the farther in you get. He finds his stride in the latter half of the book, but the front half is worth you time as well.

    It is so refreshing to read about our freedom in Christ in a non academic tone and by someone who seems to live it. Make no mistakes, this isn’t about setting aside God’s authority and making up our own. Not by a long shot. What this author has accomplished is explaining a lot of that in ways that remove the harsh legalistic tendencies and replacing them with the joy and abundant life promised by Jesus. Of course, along the way he ruffles feathers and rattles cages. That’s the point.

    His work on strongholds is especially complete. He discusses the relapses with skill and clarity. The range of strongholds goes much farther than the usual mention of drugs, alcohol and sex. It gets into your personal space and challenges attitudes and crutches we all cherish. He uses personal experiences that the reader can easily relate to in his or her own life. No details that don’t move the example into the reader’s life.

    Some will object to mention of no helmet, beer, gay and some vernacular terms that you won’t find in the more erudite books that address the same topic. Could we have done without them? Possibly, but then the opportunity for an attitude check related to those areas would have been missed.

    This is one of those books that I’d like my friends to read. Good work, Brian!
