Free Tullian Books at Crossway

Crossway Books has a drawing for free copies of two of Tullian Tchvidjian's best books: Surprised by Grace and Jesus + Nothing = Everything. I have read and own copies of both, and have posted about them both on this blog - excellent reads. 

To enter the drawing  go here. They also published this list of Tullian's Twitter feeds. Enjoy!
  • “The power of the gospel is just as necessary and relevant after you become a Christian as it is before.” #jpne
  • “Typically, it’s not that Christians seek to blatantly replace the gospel. What we try to do is add to it.” #jpne
  • “Legalism happens when what we need to do, not what Jesus has already done, becomes the end game.” #jpne
  • “Our performancism leads to pride when we succeed & despair when we fail, but ultimately it leads to slavery.” #jpne
  • “We know God hates bad works; we’re not nearly so convinced that he also hates self-righteous “good” works.” #jpne
  • “Self-righteousness can lead only to the robbery of freedom.” #jpne
  • “Disobedience happens not when we think too much of grace, but when we think too little of it.” #jpne
  • “We’re always to soak first in what God has already done before we set out to do.” #jpne
  • “Only the gospel can free us from the enslaving pressure to defend ourselves.” #jpne
  • “Our ultimate problem is not indifference to God, but idolatry.” #jpne
  • “Christian growth doesn’t happen by first behaving better, but by believing better.” #jpne
  • “We’re liberated by the recognition that God loves us in order to make us lovely, not because we are lovely.” #jpne
  • “What licentious people need is a greater understanding of grace, not a governor on grace.” #jpne
  • “We need to make it clear that Jesus came first not to make bad people good, but to make dead people alive.” #jpne
  • “The primary goal of the gospel is to bring about mortal resurrection, not moral reformation.” #jpne
  • “The gospel of amazing grace gets us in, keeps us in, and will eventually get us to the finish line.” #jpne
  • Preoccupation with our effort instead of with God’s effort for us makes us self-centered and introspective. #jpne
  • Because our self-imposed rules make us feel safe and self-pleased, they become a counterfeit God. #jpne
