Kindle Freebies: January 23, 2015

Two books I’ve read and enjoyed are free for a very limited time on Amazon.

The Very Best of Charles de LintCharles de Lint is my favorite author, and he has a short story collection titled The Very Best of Charles de Lint set as free for a limited time (through January 24). The book contains 29 stories that were chosen by polling his readers on social media. These fan favorites make a great place for someone new to Charles de Lint to start, and as someone who has read them all before, it’s nice to have them collected in one place. His stories tend to make me believe in magic and want to check behind every door for faeries and crow girls.

On Guard by William Lane CraigOn Guard: Defending Your Faith with Reason and Precision by William Lane Craig may only be free for the rest of today. This book is an introduction to apologetics, defined by Craig as “that branch of Christian theology which seeks to provide a rational justification for the truth claims of the Christian faith”. It is a shorter and easier-to-read version of his book Reasonable Faith and has illustrations, logic maps, and sidebars to aid in understanding the text.
