“The riveting account of a student leader of the Tiananmen Square protests who becomes a literal prisoner for Christ and then escapes to the West.

What can a woman do for an encore after she backs over her husband’s new laptop with her car?

First Impressions: An Amish Tale of Pride and Prejudice (The Amish Classics Book 1)

Sarah Price

Will pride and prejudice keep the Blank sisters from finding love?

With five daughters and no sons, Daed and Maem Blank are anxious to find their girls suitors who might eventually take over their family farm. When news arrives that Charles Beachey, the son of a prominent Amish farmer, will be returning from Ohio with his cousin Frederick, they are hopeful that the young men might be good matches for their daughters.

The oldest daughter, Jane, starts courting Charles, a well-mannered and very respectful young man, but her younger sister Lizzie is not interested in either courtship or Frederick. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him, finding him full of pride and disdain for her family’s way of life. But in a community and culture where pride is scorned, Lizzie must learn that first impressions can be dangerous and people are not always who they seem to be.

This Amish retelling of the popular Jane Austen classic Pride and Prejudice is a beautiful take on the power of love to overcome class boundaries and prejudices that will win your heart.

Introverts in the Church: Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture

Introverts in the Church: Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture

Adam S. McHugh

Introverts are called and gifted by God. But many churches tend to be extroverted places where introverts are marginalized. Some Christians end up feeling like it’s not as faithful to be an introvert.

Adam McHugh shows how introverts can live and minister in ways consistent with their personalities. He explains how introverts and extroverts process information and approach relationships differently and how introverts can practice Christian spirituality in ways that fit who they are. With practical illustrations from church and parachurch contexts, McHugh offers ways for introverts to serve, lead, worship and even evangelize effectively.

Introverts in the Church is essential reading for any introvert who has ever felt out of place, as well as for church leaders who want to make their churches more welcoming to introverts. Discover God’s call and empowering to thrive as an introvert, for the sake of the church and kingdom.

When we are redeemed by Christ, we are given new life. A life of pervading joy, persistent grace, and promises kept.

Rediscovering Holiness: Know the Fullness of Life with God

Rediscovering Holiness: Know the Fullness of Life with God

J. I. Packer

“There was a time,” writes renowned theologian J. I. Packer in this classic book on biblical holiness, “when all Christians laid great emphasis on God’s call to holiness. But how different it is today! To listen to our sermons and to read the books we write, and then to watch the zany, worldly, quarrelsome way we behave, you would never imagine that once the highway of holiness was clearly marked out for Bible-believers.” In this revised and updated edition of Rediscovering Holiness, the highway is once more clearly marked out for a new generation of readers, pointing to true freedom and joy, both now and in eternity.

The Story of Charlotte's Web: E. B. White's Eccentric Life in Nature and the Birth of an American Classic

The Story of Charlotte’s Web: E. B. White’s Eccentric Life in Nature and the Birth of an American Classic

Michael Sims

While composing what would become his most enduring and popular book, E. B. White obeyed that oft-repeated maxim: “Write what you know.” Helpless pigs, silly geese, clever spiders, greedy rats-White knew all of these characters in the barns and stables where he spent his favorite hours as a child and adult. Painfully shy, “this boy,” White once wrote of himself, “felt for animals a kinship he never felt for people.” It’s all the more impressive, therefore, how many people have felt a kinship with E. B. White.

Michael Sims chronicles White’s animal-rich childhood, his writing about urban nature for the New Yorker, his scientific research into how spiders spin webs and lay eggs, his friendship with his legendary editor, Ursula Nordstrom, the composition and publication of his masterpiece, and his ongoing quest to recapture an enchanted childhood.

Romancing Rebecca by Amazon Top Seller and Award-winning Author Kimberley Montpetit

Rebecca Dash loved spending her teen summers swooning over Jane Austin and helping her aunt at the Starry Skies Bed & Breakfast in Snow Valley.

An Unexpected Grace

An Unexpected Grace

Kristin Von Kreisler

From bestselling author Kristin von Kreisler comes a poignant, uplifting novel of one woman’s journey to healing, and the surprising soul mate that helps guide her there.

Lila Elliot knows she’s lucky. A shooting rampage at her office left several colleagues dead and others seriously wounded. Lila’s injuries will heal in time. Yet though she gratefully retreats to her best friend’s house to recuperate, Lila can’t quite move past her fear and anger. Being drafted into caring for Grace–a shaggy, formerly abused golden retriever–only adds to her stress. Lila has been terrified of dogs since childhood. But Grace, like Lila, needs time and space to recover.

Grace keeps her distance, sensing Lila’s wariness, and only perks up for Adam, the neighbor who rescued her. Though struggling to make sense of her recent tragedy, Lila, an accomplished artist, begins to see beauty in Grace’s wisps of fur and haunted eyes. As Adam points out, Grace, too, has suffered through no fault of her own. And in helping Grace to trust, Lila is being gently nudged toward the courage she needs to do the same.

Rich in warmth and humor, An Unexpected Grace is a story of compassion and connection, and of finding that what truly makes us whole again may be the love we give away.
