This is a truly delightful love story. I am not a fisherman by any stretch of the imagination, but this story about a tackle store owner who is in need of an employee is just wonderful. The fishing parts I totally enjoyed. The majority of the story revolves around two people and how their relationship develops. I thoroughly enjoyed every single word and highly recommend this story.

Sherri Schoenborn Murray

Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free

Glorious Ruin: How Suffering Sets You Free

Tullian Tchividjian

In this world, one thing is certain: Everybody hurts. Suffering may take the form of tragedy, heartbreak, or addiction. Or it could be something more mundane (but no less real) like resentment, loneliness, or disappointment. But there’s unfortunately no such thing as a painless life. In Glorious Ruin, best-selling author Tullian Tchividjian takes an honest and refreshing look at the reality of suffering, the ways we tie ourselves in knots trying to deal with it, and the comfort of the gospel for those who can’t seem to fix themselves—or others.

This is not so much a book about Why God allows suffering or even How we should approach suffering—it is a book about the tremendously liberating and gloriously counterintuitive truth of a God who suffers with you and for you. It is a book, in other words, about the kind of hope that takes the shape of a cross.

Jesus: Why the World Is Still Fascinated by Him

Jesus: Why the World Is Still Fascinated by Him

Tim LaHaye

Jesus. Love Him or hate Him, He’s everywhere. On our t-shirts, bumper stickers, and even on the covers of leading news magazines, year after year. We see Him on the silver screen, in the headline crawl on the TV news, and on the homemade signs held up at ball games. Hotly debated, He remains the most conspicuous figure of all time, even twenty decades after His inglorious death.

Best-selling author Tim LaHaye, together with coauthor David Minasian, looks back through history and peers into the prophetic future to show us why the world’s “Jesus Fascination” should come as no surprise. After reading about Jesus’ life, legacy, and pervasive influence, you may find yourself connecting the dots of your own spiritual journey and answering the timeless question that came from the lips of Jesus Himself: Who do you say that I am?

Sandcastle Kings: Meeting Jesus in a Spiritually Bankrupt World

Sandcastle Kings: Meeting Jesus in a Spiritually Bankrupt World

Rich Wilkerson Jr.

The world seems to have figured out the formula for manufacturing material success, but when it comes to finding true, lasting happiness, we are as lost as ever. We yearn for more, or less, or something that’s just different from what we have right now.Deep down, we know there must be satisfaction for our longing. We just don’t know where to find it.

In Sandcastle Kings, Rich Wilkerson, Jr. uses four powerful stories from the seventh chapter of Luke to explain why spiritual fulfillment cannot be found in ourselves, in other people, in material things, or even in religion. By studying the stories of the centurion’s faith, the resurrection of the widow’s son, Jesus’ message about John the Baptist, and the anointing by the woman with the alabaster jar, you will be able to face your doubts and insecurities and overcome your anxiety, discontentment, and depression. Wilkerson wants you to understand that the only answer for your spiritual bankruptcy is Jesus and that until you turn to him you will never experience the lasting peace and joy you so desperately crave.

It's Not What You Think: Why Christianity Is About So Much More Than Going to Heaven When You Die

It’s Not What You Think: Why Christianity Is About So Much More Than Going to Heaven When You Die

Jefferson Bethke

E-Book includes a special behind-the-scenes interview with Jefferson Bethke as he shares personal experiences and insights that inspired the writing of It’s Not What You Think.

New York Times best-selling author of Jesus > Religion challenges the accepted thinking of contemporary Christianity with the world-changing message Jesus actually brought.

Jesus was most upset at people for seeing but not seeing. For missing it. For succumbing to the danger and idolatry of forcing God into preconceived ideals. What if there were a better way? What if Jesus came not to help people escape the world but rather to restore it? Best-selling author and spoken word artist Jefferson Bethke says that “Christians have the greatest story ever told but we aren’t telling it.” So in this new book, Bethke tells that story anew, presenting God’s truths from the Old and the New Testaments as the challenging and compelling story that it is—a grand narrative with God at the center. And in doing so, Bethke reminds readers of the life-changing message of Jesus that turned the world upside-down, a world that God is putting back together.

Kiss Me in Carolina (Hunt Family Book 2)

Kiss Me in Carolina (Hunt Family Book 2)

Brooke St. James

It’s been said that the best time to find love is when you aren’t looking for it. Rachel Stephens was a prime example of that. She was solely focused on completing her last year of dental school and love wasn’t even on her radar.

She also wasn’t excited about having London Ryder has a houseguest. The two weren’t necessarily the best of friends, so when London came to L.A. to visit her A-list actor boyfriend, Rachel wondered why she asked to stay with her. In fact, she was beginning to wonder if this actor was really even London’s boyfriend in the first place. But she decided to just grin and bear it.

Rachel never expected London to bring her along on a film shoot. She certainly never expected to spend an afternoon alone with the actor who might just turn out to be the man of her dreams. Then again, sometimes we have to let go of our expectations and accept our destiny.
