It’s been rather quiet around here for the past couple of months, so I wanted to give you a quick update. I’ve also added some new content to the blog that I’m excited to share with you!
For the past year I’ve been deeply involved in the settling of my mother’s estate, and, quite frankly, it’s overwhelmed most of life. It is still in process, and will continue to be so well into this year. Needless to say, it has considerably affected my ability to blog as I would like to as we have had to pare back to the bare essentials of life during much of this time.
That being said, I do plan to continue blogging throughout the upcoming months as I am able. Along with occasional regular posts, I also plan to share some excellent material that others have produced that will help to fill in the gaps and will richly compliment the content of the blog.
Which brings me to what I have to share with you today…
One of the most popular sections on the blog is the Resources section. It’s been my desire for some time to add to this section a selection of classic audiobooks on the Christian life. For many years I’ve enjoyed the audiobooks produced by Librivox. They have an extensive library of public domain books, recorded by volunteers, and offered freely and without copyright restrictions. Scattered throughout their vast selection are a good number of classic Christian works. So, I’ve recently added a “Free Audiobooks” sub-section to the “Resources” page on the blog and have searched through the Librivox library to pull out a number of choice selections. To begin with, I have chosen titles that I have personally enjoyed and by authors who have had a significant impact on my life. Below is the list of the books that I presently have posted, and I plan to add additional ones as I go along.
By clicking on the title, you will go to a separate page for that book. There you will find multiple listening and downloading options. In addition to the links from the Librivox website, I’ve also added a WordPress media player with a playlist of the entire book. By using that, you can listen to the chapters continuously all the way through without having to click on each one separately. Simply scroll down until you see: ⇓ Continuous playlist ⇓, and use the player below it. 🙂
I encourage you to take advantage of these offerings, for they are rich in content and are quality productions. May you be blessed by these spiritual classics!

Thanks for these resources, David. Looking forward to your return to blogging, in the Lord’s good time. Recently I was exposed to Hudson Taylor’s ‘Union and Communion’ at a silent retreat day on the Song of Songs – outstanding! Greetings…
Thank you, Erroll! Yes, I agree, “Union and Communion” is indeed an outstanding book. The narrator also does an excellent job with it. Good to hear from you, and thanks for sharing!
Really valuable move. Thank you.
