Once in a while a story comes along that resonates with the very essence of what we call “humanity,” and speaks to readers of every age. The Deer Effect is that story – a phenomenal #1 Amazon bestseller lauded for its artistic touch, its tender tapping at emotion, and its mesmerizing ability to speak to the hearts of readers around the world.

“ONE BRITTLE LEAF FOUND ALONG our usual path proved the days had gone wintry. Papery thin as onion skin–blanched from frosty temperatures and yellowing like the pages of an old Bible, the leaf’s long slender shafts, crooked and dry, painted my world. The blue sky dragged me out that Sunday in December—December 5, 2010, if you must know—when the temperature rose to only forty-two Fahrenheit. What was I thinking?

Hold on. Wait a second. Let me back up just a tad. For your information, I’m dead. Although I speak of myself, make no mistakes. I died this day…”

So the story begins about Hannah Demsey who is found dead near the body of a fawn on the side of the road. Rod, Hannah’s husband, sets out on a journey to find the killer. With his faith waning, all truths change when Rod comes face-to-face with the only person who can tell him how his wife really died.

THE DEER EFFECT is a story of loss, redemption and forgiveness.

From the author of DROWNING–winner of the 2011 Forward National Literature Award for Drama and #1 Amazon bestseller.

The Lord is Their Shepherd: Praying Psalm 23 for Your Children

Betsy Duffey

Quietly, a force of power is unleashed, changing the course of the world – the prayers of faithful women and men for children. We will never be able to count the good choices made and bad choices avoided, the lives grown in faith as a result of these prayers.

You too can unleash that power by praying Psalm 23 for your children. This book of devotions and prayers you will learn something important about yourself, your children, and God.

Our relationship to God is like a sheep to a shepherd. In the Bible there are over 700 references to sheep. God often refers to us as his sheep. People and sheep are alike. We are stubborn and anxious. We are crowd pleasers. We are fearful. We are helpless on our own. But God is our shepherd, ready to provide everything we need. It’s all there in Psalm 23.

How can you join in and pray for your children? Everything we want for them is promised in the powerful words of Psalm 23.

Betsy Duffey and Laurie Myers will guide you as you take Psalm 23 and pray its truths and promises for your children.

Gray Matters: Navigating the Space between Legalism and Liberty

Gray Matters: Navigating the Space between Legalism and Liberty

Brett McCracken

Culture. As Christians we’re encouraged to engage it, create it, redeem it. And today many of us are actively cultivating an appreciation for aspects of culture previously stigmatized within the church. Things like alcohol, R-rated movies, and secular music have moved from being forbidden to being celebrated. But are we opening our arms too wide in uncritical embrace of culture? Can there be a healthy, balanced approach–or is that simply wishful thinking?

With the same insight found in his popular Hipster Christianity, Brett McCracken examines some of the hot-button gray areas of Christian cultural consumption, helping to lead us to adopt a more thoughtful approach to consuming culture in the complicated middle ground between legalism and liberty.

“McCracken charges headfirst into controversial questions and leaves no stone unturned. The result is a truly spectacular book that carves a path between an oppressive, rules-based religion and a powerless, free-for-all ‘faith.’ If you start reading it, beware–you won’t be able to put it down.”–Jonathan Merritt, faith and culture writer; author, A Faith of Our Own: Following Jesus Beyond the Culture Wars

“A helpful, critical, reflective exploration of how we should consume culture as Christians, one that is neither reactionary nor defensive, triumphalist nor despairing. Few younger Christians have navigated these turbulent waters with as much even-handed clarity as this book does, which makes it an important read.”–Matthew Lee Anderson, MereOrthodoxy.com; author of Earthen Vessels: Why Our Bodies Matter for Our Faith

“Idealism is all the rage among bright young evangelicals today, but Brett McCracken brings something all too rare to the table: he holds his earnest idealism in tension with lucid good sense and winsome moderation. May his tribe increase!”–John Wilson, editor, Books & Culture

“Martin Luther said the world was like a drunken man, first falling off one side of the horse and then the other. With a fresh and thoughtful look at challenges such as food, music, film, and alcohol, Brett McCracken has offered a new generation a way to stay on the horse.”–Roberta Green Ahmanson, writer and speaker

Brett McCracken is a Los Angeles-based journalist. He is the author of Hipster Christianity and has written for many publications, including the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Books & Culture, Christianity Today, and Relevant. A graduate of Wheaton College and UCLA, Brett currently works as managing editor for Biola magazine and teaches journalism at Biola University.
