Here at Thinking Matters we love free stuff, so whenever something is free and of a high quality, we go for it!

The free audiobook this month is Delighting in God by A. W. Tozer; you can find it at christianaudio.com/free/. Usually it will cost you $15 (US), however, for one month only, it is free of charge.

Here is the summary from Christianaudio.com

Delighting in God is the message Tozer intended to be the follow-up to The Knowledge of the Holy. He demonstrates how the attributes of God–those things God has revealed about himself–are a way to understand the Christian life of worship and service. We are here to serve and adore him, but we can only fulfill that role by acknowledging who he is, which is the essence of the Christian life and the source of all our fulfillment, joy, and comfort.

Enjoy!

It will include studying the thought of famous theologians like Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, and Barth, etc. One disadvantage of this approach is it presupposes you already have some background knowledge of scripture. Without this background knowledge this method can be like building a castle without blueprints – you are likely to miss large sections of load-bearing walls, and have to demolish and rebuild continually as you discover more.
