Three Little Words (Walker Family): A Novella

Three Little Words (Walker Family): A Novella

Melissa Tagg

Ava Kingsley and Seth Walker might be the most unlikely friends ever. The only thing these two polar opposites have in common is a knack for wordsmithing. Back in college, they were known for their written sparring in the campus newspaper’s popular “He Says/She Says” column.

At their ten-year college reunion, they pick up right where they left off. Except this time their squabbling leads to a surprising turn: friendship and a year-long exchange of emails. So when Ava approaches a crossroads in her athletics department career in Minnesota, Seth is quick to offer the open apartment above the restaurant he’s been remodeling in Maple Valley, Iowa.

Ava doesn’t know where her career will lead her next, but she’s starting to suspect she might see Seth as more than a pen pal. Which would be exciting…except for the fact that he only sees her as a friend.

As Maple Valley grows on her, Ava wonders if there might be something here for her even though Seth is unavailable. And maybe, just maybe, after all the words the two of them have exchanged over the years, they’ll finally be able to say the three that matter most.

Three Little Words is an e-only novella that gives an exciting introduction to Melissa Tagg’s new series about the charismatic Walker family and the endearing town of Maple Valley!

When the Tide Rushes In: A 1930’s Romance (A Grave Encounter Book 2)

Kay Chandler

There’s trouble in the land of cotton when a handsome hobo hops off a train bearing a sinister secret capable of ruining lives—including the pristine life of Lizzie Lancaster, a precocious young heiress.

When the flirtatious Lizzie offers Kiah Grave a ride in her new Model A, her cousin warns her it isn’t right. What will townsfolk say if they see her picking up a vagrant at the tracks like a common chippy? Besides, Lizzie’s mother already has a beau picked out for her—Oliver Weinberger, the Senator’s son. But the daring Lancaster heiress has never bowed to protocol. Her quick wit and spunky attitude, which her father deem endearing, grate heavily upon her highfalutin mother’s nerves.

Perhaps if she’d known the truth from the beginning, Lizzie wouldn’t have fallen in love with the mysterious stranger. But she didn’t and those who knew weren’t willing to tell. But like a splinter in the hand, secrets often fester and work their way out.

Not a Chance: God, Science, and the Revolt against Reason

Not a Chance: God, Science, and the Revolt against Reason

R. C. Sproul

Can chance truly be responsible for all that is?

Despite claiming unbelief in God or any higher power that may have designed or created the world, modern scientists often write and speak of chance as some kind of being or force that can actually cause things to happen. They have excluded any designer but filled in the resultant void with faulty reasoning.

In this classic book, R. C. Sproul and Keith Mathison call the scientific world to employ logic and clarity in their discourse, to leave the word chance as an abstract concept to describe mathematical possibilities rather than an ontological entity that can cause change. Dallas Willard praised Not a Chance as “Sproul at his best, which is very good. He shows secularism to be what it now is: a desperate faith.” This expanded edition includes a new chapter dealing with the most recent attempts to defend irrational scientific statements. A new appendix reviews other literature on scientific discoveries that support belief in a Creator God.

“Powerfully argued. Here science, philosophy, and theology meet.”–Ravi Zacharias, author of The Real Face of Atheism

“Readable, well researched, and compelling. The authors commend Christianity as the best explanation for our world of cause and effect and meaning.”–Douglas Groothuis, professor of philosophy, Denver Seminary

“Sproul shows the reader that a self-creating universe is a self-contradiction. Every Christian who wants to make an effective defense for his or her faith should read this book.”–Steven B. Cowan, coauthor of The Love of Wisdom and coeditor of In Defense of the Bible

“A needed correction for errors that have crept into modern-day science. It is a refreshing and enlightening book that tackles difficult topics and brings them down to the layman.”–Dr. Robert Waltzer, professor and chair of biology, Belhaven University

R.C. Sproul has served the church as a seminary professor, preacher, and author for almost fifty years. He is the founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries and can be heard teaching daily on the radio program Renewing Your Mind, which broadcasts on more than three hundred radio outlets in the United States and throughout fifty countries. He is also a pastor at Saint Andrew’s Chapel in Sanford, Florida.

Keith Mathison is professor of systematic theology at Reformation Bible College in Florida. He has been an associate editor of Tabletalk magazine at Ligonier Ministries and is the author of several books.

THE HOLY SPIRIT - Spiritual Gifts: Amazing Power for Everyday People (Illuminated Bible Study Guides Series)

THE HOLY SPIRIT – Spiritual Gifts: Amazing Power for Everyday People (Illuminated Bible Study Guides Series)

Susan Rohrer

THE HOLY SPIRIT – Spiritual Gifts: Amazing Power for Everyday People (Second Edition)

Do You Want to Experience God’s Power in Your Everday Life?

We sit in our pews. We hear about the awesome power of God the Father. We marvel at the miracles of Jesus. Then off we go, never expecting those supernatural spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit to flow through us in the here and now. That’s exactly what this author did, until one day she was confronted with a stunning possibility: that miracles of biblical proportions can and do still happen, even in the lives of the humblest among us. Even you.

The challenge? It meant getting to know the Holy Spirit, that enigmatic Third Person of the Trinity she’d heard so little about in traditional teaching. It meant braving controversy about spiritual gifts, searching the Scriptures, and venturing into new waters in faith.

Let’s be honest. Even wading toward the depths of the Holy Spirit and the extraordinary spiritual gifts may seem scary. It may even sound kind of kooky or off-base. You don’t want to get in over your head. You fear drowning in error or emotionalism. Still, you may long to deepen your experience with God. You may be asking:

What happened to the power Jesus promised to believers?
Why has the Holy Spirit become such a taboo subject?
Are modern miracles of biblical proportions still happening?
How can I access the supernatural power of God?
Does the Holy Spirit have spiritual gifts for me? If so, which ones?

THE HOLY SPIRIT – Spiritual Gifts: Amazing Power for Everyday People is a step-by-step guide for how to grow in dynamic relationship with the Holy Spirit. It explores how even the most ordinary believer can experience the miracle working power of God in everyday life.

This scripturally-referenced how to book with workbook-style applications is ideal for individual or group Bible Study, geared at building a highly accessible, scriptural foundation for the Person and supernatural spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Tackling tough questions with straight answers, this book tracks an everyday believer’s journey into what may be Christianity’s best kept secret. It dives deep into the often marginalized mysteries of the Holy Spirit, mingling scriptural examples with numerous contemporary anecdotes of the amazing power of God in the lives of everyday believers.

Father, Son, and Holy Who?
Why I Hadn’t Heard This in a Thousand Sermons

Playing by Heart

Anne Mateer

“Mateer’s turn-of-the-century story is full of characters who will touch your heart.”–RT Book Reviews

Lula Bowman has finally achieved her dream: a teaching position and a scholarship to continue her college education in mathematics. But then a shocking phone call from her sister, Jewel, changes everything.

With a heavy heart, Lula returns to her Oklahoma hometown to do right by her sister, but the only teaching job available in Dunn is combination music instructor/basketball coach. Lula doesn’t even consider those real subjects!

Determined to prove herself, Lula commits to covering the job for the rest of the school year. Reluctantly, she turns to the boys’ coach, Chet, to learn the newfangled game of basketball. Chet is handsome and single, but Lula has no plans to fall for a local boy. She’s returning to college and her scholarship as soon as she gets Jewel back on her feet.

However, the more time she spends around Jewel’s family, the girls’ basketball team, music classes, and Chet, the more Lula comes to realize what she’s given up in her single-minded pursuit of degree after degree. God is working on her heart, and her future is starting to look a lot different than she’d expected.

“Filled with warmth and faith, this tale of perseverance and grace serves as a reminder of a more innocent time where, despite life’s difficulties, strength was derived from the joys (and amusements) found in a small, close-knit community.” -Publishers Weekly

“Mateer’s latest is a sweet, quick read . . . by the end, you may find yourselves rooting for Lula and her team of girls.” –RT Book Reviews

Just months after the closure of the Chicago World’s Fair, librarian Lydia Bancroft finds herself fascinated by a mysterious dark-haired and dark-eyed patron. He has never given her his name; he actually never speaks to a single person. All she knows about him is that he loves books as much as she does.

Only when he rescues her in the lobby of the Hartman Hotel does she discover that his name is Sebastian Marks. She also discovers that he lives at the top of the prestigious hotel and that most everyone in Chicago is intrigued by him.

Lydia and Sebastian form a fragile friendship, but when she discovers that Mr. Marks isn’t merely a very wealthy gentleman, but also the proprietor of an infamous saloon and gambling club, she is shocked.

Lydia insists on visiting the club one fateful night and suddenly is a suspect to a murder. She must determine who she can trust, who is innocent, and if Sebastian Marks—the man so many people fear—is actually everything her heart believes him to be.

Take a Chance on Me (Christiansen Family Book 1)

Susan May Warren

2014 Christy Award winner!
Darek Christiansen is almost a dream bachelor—oldest son in the large Christiansen clan, heir to their historic Evergreen Lake Resort, and doting father. But he’s also wounded and angry since the tragic death of his wife, Felicity. No woman in Deep Haven dares come near.

New assistant county attorney Ivy Madison simply doesn’t know any better when she bids on Darek at the charity auction. Nor does she know that when she crafted a plea bargain three years ago to keep Jensen Atwood out of jail and in Deep Haven fulfilling community service, she was releasing the man responsible for Felicity’s death. All Ivy knows is that the Christiansens feel like the family she’s always longed for. And once she gets past Darek’s tough exterior, she finds a man she could spend the rest of her life with. Which scares her almost as much as Darek learning of her involvement in his wife’s case.

Caught between new love and old grudges, Darek must decide if he can set aside the past for a future with Ivy—a future more and more at risk as an approaching wildfire threatens to wipe out the Christiansen resort and Deep Haven itself.
