This week’s free ebook for The Bible Study App is the biography of John Wesley.
This biography of John Wesley spans his whole life, giving a sketch of his life, theology and ministry. The founder of Methodism, a prolific speaker and a man of deep faith, John Wesley comes alive in this biography. Based on Wesley’s letter and sermons as well as previous biographies, this biography aims to reveal the crucible of trials where Wesley’s faith was formed and to detail Wesley’s “evangelistic appeal to the heart and conscience.” John Wesley the Evangelist is excellent reading for all Christians.

John Wesley’s gift for preaching was the spark that ignited the Methodist movement in eighteenth-century England. In The Collected Sermons of John Wesley, his influential sermons are made available to modern readers in their original language.
Readers can experience impassioned messages on topics such as The Nature of Enthusiasm—and how any true experience of religious devotion will yield heartfelt joy, calling Christians to bold and often unconventional acts of faithfulness—and Free Grace—about God’s grace freely given to all, making transformation and perfection in Christian love possible for any believer. In this free ebook, over 140 of Wesley’s sermons are collected and arranged alphabetically by topic.

George Mueller’s life began as a faithless and dissolute youth. It ended as one of the most remarkable men of God, who daily trusted God’s provision for thousands of orphans, who never asked for money for himself or his work, who withstood the trials of life, and who never failed to place God first in all parts of his life. John Piper, in this short biography, maps out Mueller’s life of faith and his usefulness to the Lord’s work on the earth. Mueller’s inspirational life has lessons for us all.
Not only is it Friday but it’s the first day of February!
Today we wanted to highlight a great FREE resource from Pastor John Piper who also uses The Bible Study App from Olive Tree. Here’s what he says about Olive Tree:
“Olive Tree BibleReader is my default mobile Bible. I use it for devotions every day, usually from my iPad… The split window lets me keep a Greek and Hebrew window open as I read, and the pop-up lexicons fill in the gaps in my memory. The copy-and-paste features let me copy and paste easily to Twitter if I want to create a tweet out of something moving from my devotions.”
“Never before has the Bible been so easily accessible. Go there over and over again through the day. It is the voice of God.”

We’ll also be at the Desiring God conference starting next week so come by our booth for some more great free resources.
Every week employees at Olive Tree gather to pray and reflect on God’s word. Last week we were reminded about the importance of prayer and before our devotional time we watched a short video by John Piper which we thought we’d share with you today.
