Published by Zondervan, distributed by Apple, price of Free.

There's good news and there's bad news. The good news is you're getting a free book. The bad news is that you have to listen to ME reading it.

The folks at Zondervan have given me permission to give away an audio version of the entire text of my first book, _Jesus Asked._

This will take the form of a weekly podcast. I'll be reading about a half-chapter in a chunk (this should be between 10 and 15 minutes).

Subscribe via iTunes: Just open the Music Store, search for 'Gempf,' click on the title and subscribe button. That way, iTunes will download the new episodes each week.

This link uses your web browser to open iTunes to my podcast:

If you're not using iTunes or not sure you want to subscribe, you can download the individual sound files (mp3s) from my website Annex every week:

Just to remind you:

_Jesus Asked_ is a book about the habit that Jesus had of asking questions all the time. The print version is available from Amazon and other bookshops.

John Ortberg called "highly readable and sorely needed".

Brian McLaren said it was "the best book I've read on Jesus in years," (though I doubt he still thinks that... he's read a lot of Jesus books since then). He does refer to it in passing in his Secret Message of Jesus.

Dr Conrad Gempf is a lecturer in New Testament at London School of Theology. He worked with the NIV Translation Committee on the TNIV and also with Rob Lacey on his street-wise gospel translation, _The Liberator._ He's also the author of _Mealtime Habits of the Messiah_ and, in the UK, the author and presenter of the home group DVD _Christian Life & the Bible.
