The price for this ESV Outreach New Testament is only $0.50.

This full-size New Testament includes features to help newcomers read and understand it better:

  • “What the New Testament Is All About.”
  • Introductions to each New Testament book.
  • “How to Read the New Testament.” A basic guide for getting started.
  • “Where to Find Help When You Are…” Leads you to the Bible’s answers to your needs.
  • “What the New Testament Says About…” A guide to key Bible verses and words.
  • “Getting Started: A Thirty-Day Reading Plan.” A perfect way for newcomers to dig in.
  • “Six-Month New Testament Reading Plan.” Ideal for readers who want to get serious.
  • “God’s Plan to Save You.” The plan of salvation, clearly outlined from New Testament verses.
  • The ESV’s accurate, readable, and beautiful text is ideal for all readers who receive it.

Imagine the people you can reach with this beautiful and meaningful gift. For the cost of a cup of gourmet coffee, you can give copies to six or eight people who need God’s Word. The impact in their lives will be eternal. Think creatively about how you might be able to distribute dozens or even hundreds of copies of the ESV Outreach New Testament:

Neighbors ∙ Friends ∙ Family members ∙ Church Outreach Programs ∙ Church Visitors ∙ Trick-or-Treaters ∙ Military Families ∙ Door-to-Door Visits ∙ People in Hospitals ∙ Nursing Home Residents ∙ Youth Groups ∙ Mission Trips ∙ Counseling Centers ∙ Community Events ∙ Christmas Parties ∙ Christmas Programs ∙ Send with Christmas Cards ∙ Camps and Retreats ∙ Co-workers ∙ Bible Study Groups ∙ Clubs ∙ Sports Teams ∙ Evangelistic Events ∙ Classmates ∙ Thank You Gifts ∙ Waiters/Waitresses ∙ Mail Carriers.

 

Important Note: I would prefer if Crossway would also include the Old Testament and not just an exclusive NT, even if it would probably double the price. Jesus Christ quoted the OT often in the Gospels. I do know of the people who try to discourage non-Chrstians from reading the OT because they are afraid of what they might discover. Actually it only showed their lack of Biblical understanding of the Word of GOd both the Old and the New.

BUT, is it not better to give the Word even if it is the NT only than giving my own written tracts? I am not oppose to writing tracts and handling them out. I would say give your non-Christian friend a good biblical tract and the ESV NT! And when they have finished reading them both, get them a nice leather bounded Bible!

Here on Veritas Domain, we desire to continually critique or popular culture from a Christian perspective, in the midst of everything else we do. When we look at most movies in Hollywood, we see so many of them being very sinful.

Yet,

Surprise! Moral movies draw 7 times the fans

If the movie industry is only out for profit, why don’t they pursue more of “what works” for profit? Why are profane movies still being made at a faster rate than ‘clean films’? Is there an agenda with the film industry beyond just profit? Something to think about

Challies.com discusses his interest in video games, most of them I enjoyed also (X-Com: UFO Defense, and Civilization), and summarizes Richard Abanes’ new book What Every Parent Needs to Know About Video Games.

I would be very interested to read about video games from a presuppositional perspective. In his post, he boils the book down to two major points.

What I probably would disagree with, based upon my understanding of neutrality, is the first point:

“First, computer games are neither intrinsically good or evil. Like television or theatre, video games are amoral. They can be made good or bad by those who design them, but have no intrinsic morality.”

But further thought about this will have to wait until another day.
