Damage Control: How to Stop Making Jesus Look Bad

Damage Control: How to Stop Making Jesus Look Bad

Dean Merrill

It’s time someone stepped up to the plate and preached this message to the choir. I was challenged, encouraged, and convicted while reading “Damage Control.” If you are serious about reaching the lost, this is a must read. I enthusiastically recommend this book.

Fred Flintstone

People don’t like Christians. It’s a sad fact, but it’s true. Instead of being seen as representatives of a loving God, Christians are often seen as narrow-minded, exclusionary, or pushy.

In Damage Control, Dean Merrill examines what Christians can do to stop making Jesus look bad. “Let’s shine a light on what we’re doing wrong–and what we, as ‘field reps,’ could do better,” he says. In three parts, Merrill looks at God’s “shaky plan”–why God left his reputation in the hands of fallible humans–the ways we hurt God’s cause without realizing it, and the ways we can help God’s cause. This insightful and energizing book will show Christians how to engage in spiritual disciplines, peaceful practices, and evangelism to represent Christ for who he really is.

Katie's Dream: A Novel

Katie’s Dream: A Novel

Leisha Kelly

All three of Kelly’s books in this series are quality Christian (historial) fiction. In other words not your typical fluff. The Wortham family and their struggles becomes so endearing to the reader. These books certainly challenge me to greater faith in difficult times. I am eagerly looking forward to the fourth book.

Bride for Keeps, A (Unexpected Brides Book #1): A novel (An Unexpected Brides Novel)

A Tender Tale of Love on the Prairie Perfect for CBA Readers

Although Everett Cline can hardly keep up with the demands of his homestead, he won’t humiliate himself by looking for a helpmate ever again–not after being jilted by three mail-order brides. When a well-meaning neighbor goes behind his back to bring yet another mail-order bride to town, he has good reason to doubt it will work, especially after getting a glimpse at the woman in question. She’s the prettiest woman he’s ever seen, and it’s just not possible she’s there to marry a simple homesteader like him.

Julia Lockwood has never been anything more than a pretty pawn for her father or a business acquisition for her former fiance. Having finally worked up the courage to leave her life in Massachusetts, she’s determined to find a place where people will value her for more than her looks. Having run out of all other options, Julia resorts to a mail-order marriage in far-away Kansas.

Everett is skeptical a cultured woman like Julia could be happy in a life on the plains, while Julia, deeply wounded by a past relationship, is skittish at the idea of marriage at all. When, despite their hesitations, they agree to a marriage in name only, neither one is prepared for the feelings that soon arise to complicate their arrangement. Can two people accustomed to keeping their distance let the barricades around their hearts down long enough to fall in love?

enjoy her style of writing and it seems to flow very well. Some books I’ve read are stilted, choppy and uncomfortable to read because of the lack of flowing sentences and thoughts. No such problem here!

Lynn Austin

If you love Lynn Austin make sure to read this book! The book was 432 pages and I read through it quickly in 3 days because I could not put it down.

Kimberly

vIt seems a perfect backdrop for what Violet Hayes longs to experience: a little mystery, a little romance. To be honest, it is more than a little mystery. She schemed her way to Chicago to discover the mother she barely remembered. As for romance well, with the help of her grandmother and three great aunts, that is coming along nicely as well perhaps too well. Each of her relatives including her saintly grandmother seems to have a separate agenda for her. In the course of a summer, Violet’s world will open wide before her eyes. But in the wake of discovery, she must find a way to determine which path and which man will ultimately be the right lifetime choice for her.

Messenger, The (Against All Expectations Collection Book 5)

Siri Mitchell

I loved this book and finished it in two days. The chapters alternate between the perspectives of Hannah and Jeremiah. I feel that this style allows a greater insight into the characters as the plot develops. The romance aspect of the novel is secondary to the main issues, but is still very satisfying. I highly reccommend this novel to everyone who likes this genre.

A Riveting Tale of Faith and Romance by an Acclaimed Novelist

Hannah Sunderland felt content in her embrace of the Quaker faith

…until her twin brother ran off and joined the army and ended up captured and in jail. Suddenly Hannah’s world turns on end. She longs to bring her brother some measure of comfort in the squalid, frigid prison where he remains. But the Quakers believe they are not to take sides, not to take up arms. Can she sit by and do nothing while he suffers?

Jeremiah Jones has an enormous task before him. Responsibility for a spy ring is now his, and he desperately needs access to the men in prison, whom they are seeking to free. A possible solution is to garner a pass for Hannah. But while she is fine to the eye, she holds only disdain for him–and agreeing would mean disobeying those she loves and abandoning a bedrock of her faith.

With skill and sensitivity, Mitchell tells a story of two unlikely heroes seeking God’s voice, finding the courage to act, and discovering the powerful embrace of love.

Almost Amish

Almost Amish

Kathryn Cushman

This is by far the most unusual Amish book I have ever read. It never lags for entertainment. Chapters move quickly and before you know it there is even a bit of a surprise or two at the end; but it is an end the reader will not want to see coming. You’ll wish it had more chapters to the season.

Harold Wolf

“Cushman crafts strong characters that are
easy to connect with.”–Romantic Times

Julie Charlton is at the breaking point. She’s overwhelmed and burned out, and in today’s unrelenting society, her kids are, too. When her sister-in-law Susan, a Martha Stewart-in-training, lands the chance to participate in a reality TV series promoting simple living, and needs another family to join her, it seems like the perfect opportunity.

The location is an idyllic farm outside an Amish community in Tennessee. Julie, with her two children, joins Susan and her teenage daughter for a summer adventure. Susan needs to succeed in order to become self-sufficient after an ugly divorce, Julie needs to slow down long enough to remember what her priorities are and regain a sense of purpose and meaning. It becomes clear from the start that “living simple” is no simple matter. With the camera watching every move, Susan’s drive for perfection feels a lot like what they left behind, while Julie suddenly finds herself needing to stand up for slowing down. With each new challenge, their season of “going Amish” gets more and more complicated, as each woman learns unexpected lessons about herself and her family.
