Jane Urig

HearthLand is a serial novel released in several chapter episodes.

Taking a step back in time–deliberately.

After a trip to Walden Farm and an afternoon talking to Chad and Willow Tesdall, Ralph Myner caught a vision for what life could be like. Against the advice of his nephew, Ralph sinks his entire retirement account into an incredibly risky venture.

Harlan Walker thinks his uncle has gone crazy. With the project in motion, all he can do is try to find people to invest their time, money, and even their lives into Ralph’s project before the man ends up broke and without means to survive.

People come from all walks of life as they embrace a new world–the world of HearthLand.

Episode 13: Despite winter’s attempts to destroy, discourage, and distract Ralph from his dream, Ralph excitedly moves forward with his rapidly expanding dreams. The big investor gala nears, and with it Valentine’s Day brings unexpected joys and troubles. But when a blizzard drives Ralph from his home, a little soul searching leaves him floundering.

And what lengths will her stepchildren go to reclaim their father’s fortune? Lydia soon finds her life–and that of her child’s–on the line.

For me, I love a book with a strong females character, a good mystery, Christian, in a small ocean town selling, and this series has it ALL!!!!

Kat Butler

Someone is intent on destroying the true meaning of Christmas—at least, destroying anything that hints of it. All around crime-scene cleaner Gabby St. Claire’s hometown, anything pointing to Jesus as the “reason for the season” is being sabotaged. The crimes become more twisted as dismembered body parts are found at the vandalisms. Who would go to such great lengths to dampen the joy and hope of Christ’s birthday?

Taking Christian Moral Thought Seriously (B&H Studies in Christian Ethics)

Taking Christian Moral Thought Seriously (B&H Studies in Christian Ethics)

Jeremy A. Evans

his is an excellent work, discussing thoughtfully most of today’s important moral issues. Particularly compelling (and bold) are the essays by J. Noland. I’m recommending this to everyone I know.

Scaramouche

The Death Penalty, Environmentalism, Public Reason, Voting, Abortion. Where does Christian faith belong in discussions about these issues?

In Taking Christian Moral Thought Seriously, editor Jeremy A. Evans establishes that separation of church and state is not a principle of the United States Constitution (or any other founding document). Thus, there should be a social interest in not hindering any religious person’s full participation in the American marketplace of ideas. As such, Evans addresses readers from both the Christian and non-Christian communities through the related scholarship here, knowing either side’s failure to consider one’s well-prepared thoughts in science, politics, and education undermines the very idea of seeking the truth.

Topics include:

* The death penalty
* John Rawls’ theory of public reason
* Whether or not a non-voting stance is permissible for Christians
* Religious disagreement and its impact on the justification of religious beliefs
* How the current models of scientific explanation are not incompatible with religious beliefs
* Creation care—what is our responsibility to the environment?
* Are theologians and philosophers missing the point on the abortion problem?

Acclaim for Taking Christian Moral Thought Seriously:

“This is a long-overdue book. Although there are scores of accessible books written by Christian philosophers addressing traditional topics, such as God’s existence, the problem of evil, and the miraculous, few have broached the areas of ethics, public reason and science while critically and respectfully engaging the most influential philosophers writing on these subjects. Professor Evans has managed to put together such a book. It is a model of clarity without sacrificing philosophical rigor. It is the sort of book that should be in the hands of any Christian desiring to engage the wider culture in an informed and thoughtful manner.”

Francis J. Beckwith
Professor of Philosophy and Church-State Studies, Baylor University

“This text is a great place to get ‘up to speed on aspects of crucial issues that we too seldom ever hear being discussed in evangelical circles.”

Gary R. Habermas
Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University & Theological Seminary

“Taking Christian Moral Thought Seriously truly models what the title itself expresses–a serious-minded, Christianly engagement of important moral and cultural themes. Without exception, each contributor writes with scholarly rigor, insight, and creativity. This book well illustrates how practical, robust, and explanatorily rich the Christian faith is.”

Paul Copan

Professor and Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, Palm Beach Atlantic University

Winning Him Without Words: 10 Keys to Thriving in Your Spiritually Mismatched Marriage

Lynn Donovan

This book is awesome. It has really helped me. The book is well written and has good life applications. You should buy it.

TB

Week after week, they sit in church . . . alone. They are the spiritually mismatched, those who are committed to a spouse who does not share their faith. Feeling abandoned by their spouse and forgotten by their church, they live out their faith in survival mode, guarding the spiritual flame yet never feeling free to share it. But God wants them to thrive–not just survive.

Winning Him Without Words presents ten Christ centered keys to thriving in a spiritual mismatch. Readers are encouraged to commit to Christian community, to release their spouse to God’s capable hands, to find peace in their relationships with Christ and with their spouse, to continue their pursuit of a growing faith, and to love their spouse with fresh enthusiasm. God wants every marriage to exude peace and love, and Winning Him Without Words empowers readers to create that environment in their homes and thrive as God works.

Winning Him Without Words was the recipient of the Nonfiction Book of 2011 Award from the San Diego Christian Writers Guild, one of the largest Christian writers group in the United States.

A cowgirl falls in love and she has doubt that she is worthy of the man she loves this is a very good story

G.H.

Sami Lawson’s scars run deep, and she trusts no one. Ever since her mother abandoned her
family when she was ten, Sami has watched her father grow cold and bitter from a broken heart.
The one question she cannot shake is: Where is God through all this? To her wounded heart, the only answer she can find is: He is not. As Sami gets to know Chase, her walls start to come down, which frightens her. Can she trust this man who seems so sincere? Or will he abandon her just like her mother did?

After hearing rumors about Sami, Chase Townsend expected a “man-eater” of a woman, especially with a nickname like “Wild Cat.” Instead, he is stunned by the beauty with the sparkling blue eyes.
However, Chase quickly figures out that something has happened to Sami, and he has to decide if he is willing to try to help her overcome her bitterness or if he should just let the “Wildcat” be. Because of Chase’s deep trust in God, and his strong perseverance streak, he makes it his mission to show Sami that God loves her and, only He can heal her broken past.

Now that Chase has made it his business to witness to Sami, he finds himself falling in love.
Will his heart be broken when Sami pushes him away?

It is my opinion that this book has been underrated by many casual readers. These essays will provide encouragement, joy, and clarity to any Christian.

John DePoe

The classic Weight of Glory by C.S. Lewis, the most important Christian writer of the 20th century, contains nine sermons delivered by Lewis during World War Two. The nine addresses in Weight of Glory offer guidance, inspiration, and a compassionate apologetic for the Christian faith during a time of great doubt.

The Power of Suffering: Strengthening Your Faith in the Refiner's Fire

The Power of Suffering: Strengthening Your Faith in the Refiner’s Fire

John MacArthur Jr.

This book is so chalked full of powerful messages that give fantastic understanding to why there is suffering in God’s world, that I feel there is not a soul on earth who would not be able to take away something helpful from this book. Macarthur is outlines his messages in a very comprehensible way.

K. Meyer

In today’s modern world of convenience and comfort, suffering can seem senseless. This idea has even crept into the church, where many believe that if we make the right choices and do the right things, pain can be avoided. So it’s little wonder that when do encounter tough situations, we face even tougher questions: Why does God allow suffering? Where is God when I’m hurting?

The Power of Suffering takes an in-depth, honest look at the reality of pain and hurt in the life of a believer. Filled with rich Biblical truths and fresh insights, this study explores how God ultimately uses suffering for good in the lives of His children, and offers encouragement and hope for the heavy heart.

Includes a guide for both personal and group study and features discovery questions, suggestions for prayer, and activities, all designed to connect life-changing truths with everyday living.

Melanie

Grief brought Finley to Ireland. Love will lead her home.

Finley Sinclair is not your typical eighteen-year-old. She’s witty, tough, and driven. With an upcoming interview at the Manhattan music conservatory, Finley needs to compose her audition piece. But her creativity disappeared with the death of her older brother, Will.

She decides to study abroad in Ireland so she can follow Will’s travel journal. It’s the place he felt closest to God, and she’s hopeful being there will help her make peace over losing him. So she agrees to an exchange program and boards the plane.

Beckett Rush, teen heartthrob and Hollywood bad boy, is flying to Ireland to finish filming his latest vampire movie. On the flight, he meets Finley. She’s the one girl who seems immune to his charm. Undeterred, Beckett convinces her to be his assistant in exchange for his help as a tour guide.

Once in Ireland, Finley starts to break down. The loss of her brother and the pressure of school, her audition, and whatever it is that is happening between her and Beckett, leads her to a new and dangerous vice. When is God going to show up for her in this emerald paradise?

Then she experiences something that radically changes her perspective on life. Could it be God convincing her that everything she’s been looking for has been with her all along?

Destiny Junction: Behind Every Door is a Life, and Behind Every Life is a Destiny

Michael Phillips

I really enjoyed reading this well-written book. There are sad times and good times but all are “real” in that they could happen to you or in your community. When tragedy strikes the town, how do the people react? Be inspired. Salvation is a very prevalent theme. Some may think the book preachy but the author makes no apology for this and weaves a great story in between the message. EXCELLENT!

Liz Pomeroy

Destiny Junction is a small town, not unlike any other small town in America. As its name implies, however, it becomes the place where many people’s lives meet destiny.

Through one young lady’s obedient Christian life and the work of the Holy Spirit subsequent to her murder, the lives of many people in the town of Destiny Junction are transformed.

This is their story…a story about life…and what it means…or what it ought to mean.
