* You’re at home and you get a call that your assistant can’t find your leadership notes.

* You’re on the road and discover that you have lost your sermon notes.

* You’re about to teach a class and learned that you brought the wrong lesson plan.

* You’re sister calls (again) and needs help with her computer.

Any of these scenarios ever happen to you? Wish there was an easy, low cost solution?  Ever ask yourself, “Why me?”

Introducing TeamViewer.com.  The free remote control solution for people who like free stuff.

The program is free for personal use and very easy to use (even for your sister).

The best part is that it works on both PC’s and Mac’s!  You can even connect to a Mac from a PC. (or PC to Mac or Mac to Mac or PC to PC).  Did I mention that it’s Free yet?

After you install the software on both computers (which is super easy to do) each computer will have an I.D. and password.  Share this info. with the person who you want to communicate with and, Whoala! Bingo! Bam! Lotteria! You’re in.

Once you’re connected to the other computer, you can transfer files, chat, (all connections are 100% secure – https/SSL ) You can even connect to the other computer while its unattended!  Plus you can remotely reboot and reconnect to the remote computer.  That’s cool!

I’ve tried other free remote control programs including; gotomypc.com, logmein.com, pcanywhere and realvnc.com.  TeamViewer is the best and easiest remote control software that I’ve used in years.  I highly recommend it.

The next time you need to access the lyrics to the new song for your worship team, handouts for the church leadership meeting or need to get that one file that you forgot to bring with you, remember that there’s a free solution just for you, TeamViewer.com.

By they way, for those who just have to ask, the photos above have absolutely nothing to do with this program.  You don’t need to purchase a physical remote control or two cans and string.

Download Apostle Paul

Download, Apostle Paul, a full-length college course for only $15.95 (price will increase soon).  If you don’t have time to take a college class then you definitely do not want to miss out on this excellent opportunity.  I’ve purchased this product myself and it’s very engaging.  It even comes with class notes!

Paul

Historian Luke Timothy Johnson, the best-selling author of The Real Jesus, offers a fresh and historically grounded assessment of the life and letters of Christianity’s “apostle to the Gentiles” in this 12-lecture series.

“One of the most fascinating, important, and controversial figures in the religious history of the West, Paul the Apostle continues to find champions and detractors, sometimes in surprising places,” says Professor Johnson.

Coming to grips with Christianity means coming to grips with Paul. There is no figure aside from Jesus himself who is more important to the history of this world religion, and no figure from the age of the early church about whom we know more or of whom we have a more rounded view.

You consider his letters to the Thessalonians, Corinthians, and Galatians. You explore his religious commitments as a member of the Pharisaic movement, his persecution of the Christian sect, the dramatic experience that changed him into an apostle, and his work as a missionary and church founder.

Course Lecture Titles include:

1.    An Apostle Admired and Despised
2.    How Should We Read Paul?
3.    Paul’s Life and Letters
4.    Problems of Early Christianity
5.    First and Second Thessalonians
6.    Life in the World—First Corinthians
7.    Life in Christ—Second Corinthians
8.    Life and Law—Galatians
9.    Life and Righteousness—Romans
10.    Fellowship—Letters from Captivity
11.    History and Theology
12.    Paul’s Influence

The course, Apostle Paul, is being offered by The Teaching Company, the force in adult education that distributes lectures by professors from some of the nation’s leading universities.

Download the 12 lectures for only $15.95 (my preference) or purchase the six audio CD’s for only $19.95.  What have you got to loose?

131 Christians Everyone Should Know

131

Calvin, Luther, Zwingli, Moody and Wesly.  Do any of these names ring a bell.

If not, I suggest that you get acquainted with them.  Why?  Because they are history’s most awe-inspiring Christians.

If you’re new to the Bible or even if you’re a veteran Christian, I highly recommend getting the book, 131 Christians Everyone Should Know (Holman Reference)You will not be disappointed.

131

Becoming familiar with the lives of those that have shaped Christianity (as well as history itself) helps to understand and see God’s plan for the Ages.

It also helps to understand  the work of God in the life of His servants.  You will gain knowledge of how Scripture came to be,  how church traditions came to be and so much more.

From the editors of Christian History, these 131 biographies offer succinct and powerful portraits of remarkable believers such as St. Augustine, Johann Sebastian Bach, Constantine, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Teresa of Avila, Joan of Arc, Polycarp, and over one hundred others.

Spending time with just one of these great Christians will inspire you to deeper thought and a greater appreciation for the men and women who have given of themselves for the good news of the Gospel.

Timelines, quotes and background information reveal each figure’s place in history, how they lived, what they believed, and how their faith affected the course of history.    The book also contains a topical index that will help you find illustrations for teaching and preaching.

Who is your favorite believer in Christian history?

Free Bible Resource Ebooks

Ebooks

What’s an ebook?

Good question.  Ebooks are real books written by real people saved in electronic format.  Most of us are used to reading books on paper.  Paper is just the way a book is packaged and delivered.  When you read an ebook it’s a computerized version of the book.  You could read ebooks on your computer and on your PDA or Smartphone.

To read an ebook on your PDA all you need is an ebook reader (eReader).  An eReader is a small program that allows your PDA to display the contents of the eBook.  There are many type of eReaders.  For the ebooks I mention in this post I recommend using Olive Tree’s BibleReader® software, (it’s Free).

Once you download an ebook to your PDA it’s stays with you where ever you go.   No more lugging around your favorites books.  Ebooks are portable.  They are always with you.  If you get stuck some place waiting in line just open your ebook and pick up where you left off.

ebook

Another nice thing about ebooks is that you can have many ebooks on your PDA.   No matter how many ebooks your have, your PDA will not get heavier or bulkier.

Ebooks also allow you to read in the dark.   Since all PDA’s have a built-in backlight, you don’t have to worry about leaving the lights on or fiddling around with a tiny book light.  Ebooks are cool.

iphoneebook

There are all kinds of ebooks; books, magazines, references, etc.   There is something for everyone.

The Bible is also available as an ebook.  I use the Free American Standard Version Bible on my Palm 755p.  It works great!  The YouVersion Bible is also an excellent online Bible for PDA and Smartphones.  If you have an iPhone, access the Bible directly from the web.  Just go to: enetbible.com. For Free Bible programs for the PC, MAC and cell phone click here.

There are ebooks that are Free and there are eBooks that are not Free.  I prefer Free.   Google “Free Ebooks” and you will find a plethora of Free ebooks.   One of my favorites sites for Free Bible Resource Ebooks is Olive Tree.  Check them out.  Also visit the Visit the World Ebook Fair for millions of ebooks.

So go ahead give it a try, download an ebook today.  One I have found to be very interesting is the free ebook, “Prayer and Praying Men” by E. M. Bounds. In it the author shares practical lessons of prayer from the saints of the Old and New Testaments from the comfort of your PDA or Smartphone.

Chapters highlight the life of prayer as we see it in Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Hezekiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, Samuel, Daniel, and Paul, with five chapters devoted to Paul alone.   By the way, you can also ready this book online here.

Check out my ebook, “Blogger Guide to Profits“.  It will show you how to make money from a blog.  If you are a iPhone user check out the BibleReader™ for iPhone or IPod Touch (free of course).  It’s a full-featured Bible reading and study application.   Read and study the Bible with your favorite Bible translations, commentaries, and study tools anytime, anywhere.  For a full review of BibleReader™ for iPhone click here.  If you’re a Blackberry user, check out the new BibleReader for Blackberry with storage card here.

Learn to Share the Gospel on your Palm

Do you know how to share your faith?

Download a FREE little program (for your Palm PDA) and learn how to present the Gospel in an effective biblically based manner.

The program comes from Evangelism Explosion.  I like its ease of use and the creativity of the program. The program asks 2 simple questions, “Do you know for certain that you are going to be with God in heaven?” and ‘Why should God let you into his heaven?” It’s a clear cut interactive presentation of the Gospel.  The presentation is also available online here.

evangelism explosion
Use it to learn how to share the Gospel or install it on your Palm PDA then lend it to a friend so he can go through the presentation.   Click here to download the Free program.    Basically it’s a Gospel Tract for Palm OS Handhelds.

Evangelism Explosion (EE) International is reaching out to teach the world how to evangelize.   This free download shows you an easy, effective and biblical way to share your faith using a Palm PDA.

How do you respond when someone asks about your faith in God, in Christ, your belief in Heaven and Hell, in the Bible? Do you become defensive, do you fight, go into combat mode, become intimidated?  None of these extremes are necessary nor are they appropriate.  Check out EE’s  Answers to Tough Questions for some pretty good responses for those who are skeptical and may question your faith.


If you want to learn more about sharing your faith check out this FREE four-session course by ChristianBible Studies.com called, Sharing Your Faith.  It looks at the apostle Paul’s life, and his advice in the book of 1 Thessalonians to help us overcome our uncertainties and fears about sharing our faith.

30 Day Guide For New Believers

Global Media Outreach (A ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ) has put together a web site that provides a Free 30 day guide for new believers.   What I really like is their easy to remember domain name:  LookUntoJesus.com

look unto jesus

look unto jesus

The site also contains 6 easy steps for people who have recently given their life to Christ or are renewing their faith in Christ.  Each day, they have noted, there are over 1 million internet searches, from people all around the world, for spiritual terms like “I need God”…”Who is Jesus” …”prayer”, etc.  Their goal is to reach these people for Christ through cutting edge and emerging technologies.

They also provide online small groups, live chat sessions and several “how to” booklets that teach the basic truths about the Christian life.   Written by Dr. Bill Bright, the late founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, these “Transferable Concepts” are designed to present Christian truths that you can learn and then share with others.

If you are looking for a good site for new believers, check out:  LookUntoJesus.com presenting the good news of Jesus Christ over the Internet.

Got Small Groups?

If you have a lot of Bible Study Groups in your church (sometimes called small groups, life cell groups, ministry teams etc.) you know how challenging it can be to manage all of the information involved (structure, enrollment, attendance, etc.)  If you’re tired of all the paperwork required to track your church small groups let ChurchTeams help.

church reams

Church Teams is a web based program that empowers your leaders to update and use the information they need in order to enhance the quality of your small group’s communication, coaching, and tracking.  The beauty of ChurchTeams.com is that the entire program is available from any computer with internet access.  Some of the other features include:

  • Easy integration with your church website in minutes.
  • Built in mapping and filtering make it easy for people to find the best group for them.
  • Group leaders receive automatic e-mail reminders to post group attendance and notes each week.
  • Administrators and leaders can quickly generate attendance, absentee, and other reports.
  • Leaders, group members, and people not yet in groups can be e-mailed directly.
  • Five layers of security ensure that your data is safe.

We recently have started using this program at my church and I like it a lot.  Church Teams allows group leaders to post their attendance and group notes from their home or workplace over the Internet.  Leaders can even use it to communicate to their whole group.  This weekly update can help even the infrequent attenders feel connected and helps coaches and pastors know the condition of their groups better than ever before.  Check them out at ChurchTeams.com
