The Amish Heart

The Amish Heart

Katie Fisher

An Amish girl following a difficult path. Will she find the strength to complete it?

Eighteen-year-old Ruth Kepthart isn’t looking forward to her Rumspringa at all. All she wants to do is join the Amish faith in full, be baptized, and marry. And deep down inside, she already knows which man would be right for her. Her parents, however, want her to experience more of life.

But Ruth hadn’t anticipated that a murder would shatter the peace in their Amish community. When a woman is found dead, Ruth decides that she will have a Rumspringa after all–and it will be solving the murder.

Luckily, she doesn’t have to walk this difficult path alone. Her best friend Enoch Schuller is with her, to help her and protect her from danger.

Ruth and Enoch soon find themselves trying to solve a murder with little to go on besides rumors. And as Ruth digs deeper into the mystery, she also digs deeper into her own feelings. There might be hope for love after all… if only fear doesn’t get in the way.

Hold the Faith: Early Christianity Comes to Life (The Apostle John Series Book 1)

Hold the Faith: Early Christianity Comes to Life (The Apostle John Series Book 1)

Susan Preston

Curious about early Christianity?

To be a Christian in 1st century Ephesus, under Roman rule, is dangerous.
The arena awaits, a background threat… one that candidates for baptism are reminded of. The decision might cost them their lives. All it takes is the refusal to burn a pinch of incense and declare that Emperor Domitian is lord and god, and Roman ire declares they are subversive, rebels.
Jews are exempt from this edict, but not the followers of the Way. Sometimes Jews will denounce these Christians. They have, after all, turned from the traditions of the fathers, to follow the sect established by an untrained country preacher.
Join Benjamin, great-grandson of the Apostle John, as he discovers the faith of his family is not enough. He needs to make the choice for himself.
He faces another choice… After his father is attacked in the market place, should he help in his father’s shop, or keep his commitment to accompany his great-grandfather, the apostle John, as he prepares to set out to walk around the other six fellowships in the Roman province of Asia Minor? Smyrna, Pergamum, Sardis, Thyatira, Philadelphia and Laodicea.
Meet the cunning false brethren as they try to lure people into their Gnostic beliefs.
Walk in the shoes of the first believers, see how they lived, what they battled with, and how they coped with the choices and challenges of daily life.
Early Christianity comes to life in this ‘fiction-based-on-fact’ book.

Jesus Came to Save Sinners: An Earnest Conversation with Those Who Long for Salvation and Eternal Life

Jesus Came to Save Sinners: An Earnest Conversation with Those Who Long for Salvation and Eternal Life

Charles H. Spurgeon

This is a heart-level conversation with you, the reader. Every excuse, reason, and roadblock for not coming to Christ is examined and duly dealt with. If you think you may be too bad, or if perhaps you really are bad and you sin either openly or behind closed doors, you will discover that life in Christ is for you too. You can reject the message of salvation by faith, or you can choose to live a life of sin after professing faith in Christ, but you cannot change the truth as it is, either for yourself or for others. As such, it behooves you and your family to embrace truth, claim it for your own, and be genuinely set free for now and eternity. Come, and embrace this free gift of God, and live a victorious life for Him.

About the Author

Charles Haddon (C. H.) Spurgeon (1834-1892) was a British Baptist preacher. He started preaching at age 19, and quickly became famous. He is still known as the “Prince of Preachers,” and frequently had more than 10,000 people present to hear him preach at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. His sermons were printed in newspapers, translated into many languages, and published in many books.

Already Gone

Already Gone

Todd Hillard

If you look around in your church today, two-thirds of the young people who are sitting among us have already left in their hearts; soon they will be gone for good.

This is the alarming conclusion from a study Answers in Genesis commissioned from America’s Research Group, led by respected researcher Britt Beemer. The results may unnerve you – they may shake long-held assumptions to the core – but these results need to be taken seriously by the church. Already Gone reveals:

• Why America’s churches have lost an entire generation of believers
• The views of 1,000 twenty-somethings, solidly raised in the church but no longer attending – and their reasons why
• Relevant statistical data effectively teamed with powerful apologetics

The study found that we are losing our kids in elementary, middle school, and high school rather than college, and the “Sunday school syndrome” is contributing to the epidemic, rather than helping alleviate it. This is an alarming wake-up call for the church, showing how our programs and our approaches to Christian education are failing…and our children are paying the price. Though the statistics reveal a huge disconnect taking place between our children and their church experience, Already Gone shows how to fight back for our families, our churches, and our world. We can make a difference today that will affect the statistics of tomorrow in a positive and Christ-focused way!

Fatal Tide (The East Salem Trilogy Book 3)

Fatal Tide (The East Salem Trilogy Book 3)

LIS WIEHL

In East Salem, the elite St. Adrian’s Academy is at the nexus of a satanic apocalypse—and the fatal tide is rising.

When Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights is reunited with the pagans who commissioned it, a dark prophecy begins to unfold in East Salem, beginning with a savage double-murder by hellish creatures straight out of the painting itself. The lone survivor of the attack, a seventeen-year-old Brit, finds sanctuary at Tommy Gunderson’s home—and the place is soon surrounded by demons who seem to be biding their time . . . but for how long?

Tommy’s pond has been contaminated with Provivilan—an insidious drug that could transform New York City’s children into an army of violence addicted murderers. But for an occult cabal in the upper echelons of Linz Pharmaceuticals, contaminating the water supply is just part of an ancient conspiracy against all of humankind.

As the clouds gather, Tommy and Dani realize they must infiltrate Linz and St. Adrian’s to stop the dissemination of Provivilan. Even then, it could take a tangible eruption of the battle between angels and demons to save humanity from the supernatural evils that have been summoned to East Salem.
