Free Books From Jerry Bridges and Sproul Today for Kindle

Two books have been made available for free, today in the Kindle Store. Navpress has made available, for free, Jerry Bridge's book Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts. Also, Reformation Trust has made available, today only, R.C. Sproul's book Can I Know God's Will?

Jerry Bridge's Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts discusses God's sovereignty over evil and suffering, and about the rock-solid trust we can have in the goodness of God through it all. From the book's cover:
Adversity is hard to endure and can even be harder to understand. If God were really in control, why would He allow the tragic auto accident or crucial job loss? How could He permit cancer in a loved one or the death of a child? Grappling with His concern for us we ask, “Why is God allowing this?” or “What have I done wrong?”

In an effort to strengthen his own trust in God during a time of adversity, Jerry Bridges began a lengthy Bible study on the topic of God’s sovereignty. What he learned changed his life, and he now shares the fruit of that study with you in Trusting God. As you begin to explore the scope of God’s power over nations, nature, and the detailed lives of individuals, you’ll begin to acknowledge His loving control. And as you come to know Him better, you’ll find yourself trusting Him more completely—even when life hurts.
R.C. Sproul's Can I Know God's Will? is the fourth book in the Crucial Questions series. Having just finished reading another book from this series (Can I Be Sure I'm Saved?), I can attest to the brevity and quality of these books. If the title of Can I Know God's Will? isn't clear enough about the subject matter, here is the official product description:
As human beings, we long to know that our lives will unfold in ways that we will find pleasant and rewarding. As Christians, we have a different focus-we want our lives to be pleasing to God. Thus, we ponder His will and worry that we are not doing what He wants us to do. In this Crucial Questions booklet, Dr. R. C. Sproul outlines timeless principles for discovering and applying the will of God in day-to-day decisions. He then illustrates how these principles should inform two of the most significant decisions we face in life--the choice of a career and the choice of a spouse. Here is valuable guidance for those who are passionate to follow God.
Please note that you should read the page that the link takes you to carefully, as I can only be sure the books have been made free for December 6th. Once this date passes, it is very likely that both books will go back to their regular prices.
