Who is the Holy Spirit? (Crucial Questions Series Book 13)

R.C. Sproul

In this Crucial Questions booklet, Dr. R.C. Sproul cuts through the confusion by going back to the Bible. He establishes the biblical teaching on the Spirit’s identity—He is one of the three persons of the Godhead, along with the Father and Son—then briefly sketches some of the most basic yet important roles the Spirit carries out. He shows that the Spirit gives new life to unbelievers, then sanctifies, strengthens, teaches, and anoints them for ministry. This booklet provides a basic understanding of the divine person on whom Christians’ very lives depend.

Dreams By Starlight: A Contemporary Inspirational Romance Novel (The Dreams Series, Book 1)

Dreams By Starlight: A Contemporary Inspirational Romance Novel (The Dreams Series, Book 1)

Staci Stallings

If all the world’s a stage and each of us plays a part, then Camille Wright is the high school wallflower that nobody remembers and only the bullies ever knew was there. However, her headlong dash to Princeton’s Aerospace Engineering program crashes to a heart-jarring halt when in order to “round out all those math classes,” she is unwillingly signed up for drama class. Awkward, shy, and quiet, Camille struggles to stay part of the wall even under the bright lights. But sometimes where you want to be isn’t where you were destined to be at all…

Jaylon Patrick Quinn has been the star so long, not even he remembers when he wasn’t. Confident to the point of obnoxious, smooth to the point of disgusting, Jaylon has his high school peers enthralled. However, the fool’s gold of stardom and the glare of being one-half of the school’s star couple have made Jaylon begin to question if this is really how life is best lived. Now he must decide which direction his future is headed and more importantly, if he really wants to go there at all.

DREAMS BY STARLIGHT contains a strong message of looking past the outside to what’s in the heart. A teen romance, it deals with peer pressure and shows how snide comments can deeply wound another. It also shows how true friendship can help encourage and lift up someone in spite of the difficulties of life. — Vickie McDonough, Award-winning Barbour/Heartsong author

While reading DREAMS BY STARLIGHT, a mantle of hope wrapped itself around me, filling me with the desire to be myself, and to pursue my own hidden dreams. The whole time, I kept wishing it would have been mandatory reading when I was in high school. It would have saved me a whole lot of aggravation knowing it was okay to be me—the me God created me to be. – Deb Ullrick, Heartsong author

This high school romance is an encouraging story of one girl’s coming of age journey to find herself in the rough-and-tumble teen world. A young adult romance, it is intertwined with messages about becoming who you were really meant to be and learning to ward off the destructive words of naysayers.

As the book says, “All that you can do is all that you must.”

*~* EXCERPT *~*

“Okay,” Jaylon said and paused a beat. “Umm, you have to look at me, remember?”

“Oh, y-yeah.” Camille stumbled over the words as she forced her gaze back to his.

Looking back at her was sincere interest. “So, what’s your favorite class?”

She smiled as her entire body instantly relaxed. “Math.”

“Math?” he asked in surprise.

“Yeah. Why? Is that so hard to believe?”

“Well, no. I guess not, but I hate math.” He ran his fingers through his hair to push it back out of his face. “I’m just surprised anybody likes it.”

“You hate it?” she asked, forgetting this was supposed to be hard. “But it’s so fascinating.”

“Fascinating? I can think of another word for it,” he said, wrinkling his nose.

“Oh, yeah? What’s that?”

“Torture.”

She laughed and shook her head. “No, now you’re talking about drama.”

“Huh?” he asked, and her gaze dropped from his to her shoestrings.

With a shove she forced her gaze back up although this time it didn’t lock on his. Instead it wandered around the stage and the auditorium and over to the other partners.

“How can you not like drama?” he asked in genuine confusion. “Drama is awesome.”

Her eyebrows raised as she looked back at him in open-eyed mortification. “Not when you’re me. It isn’t.”

The Listening Life: Embracing Attentiveness in a World of Distraction

The Listening Life: Embracing Attentiveness in a World of Distraction

Adam S. McHugh

Bookwi.se’s Favorite Books of the Year, Non-Fiction

“Be quick to listen, slow to speak.” —James 1:19

How would our lives change if we approached every experience with the intention of listening first?

In this noisy, distracting world, it is difficult to truly hear. People talk past each other, eager to be heard but somehow deaf to what is being said. Listening is an essential skill for healthy relationships, both with God and with other people. But it is more than that: listening is a way of life.

Adam McHugh places listening at the heart of our spirituality, our relationships and our mission in the world. God himself is the God who hears, and we too can learn to hear what God may be saying through creation, through Scripture, through people. By cultivating a posture of listening, we become more attentive and engaged with those around us. Listening shapes us and equips us to be more attuned to people in pain and more able to minister to those in distress.

Our lives are qualitatively different—indeed, better—when we become listeners. Heed the call to the listening life, and hear what God is doing in you and the world.

A Forgotten Truth (The Agency Files Book 4)

A Forgotten Truth (The Agency Files Book 4)

Chautona Havig

The Agency Files:
Whatever it takes: the motto of “The Agency.” It doesn’t exist–not legally speaking. However its effect in the lives of those who benefit from their aid is incalculable. Lives saved, restored, guarded–protected from the side of life most never see. Their clients are usually wealthy, important–desperate. Their other clients–well, they don’t always appreciate the efforts expended on their behalf–not until they aren’t lying on a slab in the morgue.

A Forgotten Truth:
One man holds the key to a secret that has the potential to rock the core of the American government.

The FBI, Homeland Security, and The Agency all compete to find Ryan West before those who seek to silence him succeed.

For Dan Abney, everything’s a blur. On the run from people he can’t name, Dan has one goal in mind: Stay alive and find out who he is.

The North Koreans have stepped up their game, and Mark, in between trying to find Ryan and keep his ex-girlfriend safe, is split between keeping Shin Kim and family safe and extracting all damaging information from him before the country is at risk.

From Portland to Oklahoma, Michigan to Rockland and it surrounding areas, The Agency is stretched thin and racing against a ticking time bomb that threatens more than their existence.

And while Keith is off trying to secure the safety of witnesses and criminals alike, Erika wrestles with the issue dividing her heart and soul. Can she bear to surrender herself–all that she is–and become a “new creature” in Christ? Torn between an aching desire for the peace she sees in her father and Keith and the autonomy she cherishes, Erika is left with anything but peace. Will she surrender? Can she?

Davey’s Daughter: A Suspenseful Romance By The Bestselling Amish Author! (Lancaster Burning)

Linda Byler

Barns are burning in Amish author, Linda Byler’s, second book in the ‘Lancaster Burning’ series, and no one knows who’s doing it or why. Can Sarah Beiler end the terror that is pulling apart her community, even as her own heart is pulled between two young men?

Barns are burning in the Lancaster County’s Amish community, and no one knows who’s doing it or why. Sarah Beiler’s barn was the first to burn and it was quickly followed by two other barn fires. The entire Amish community is on edge and wrestling with how they should respond to these seemingly random crimes. Sarah thinks Ashley, whom she’s learned to know at the local farmers market, knows more about the fires than she will admit. But Sarah can’t convince her to share her secrets. Should the Amish consider police protection as Sarah’s cousin, Melvin, insists, or should the community continue to follow their traditional peaceful approach to violence as Sarah’s father, Davey, the local minister, counsels? Then another barn burns, this one more devastating than any other, and the community again rallies around the distressed family.

Even in the midst of this chaos, life must go on for Sarah and her family. But now it feels as if nothing is normal. The local Amish school board asks Sarah to take over teaching a school where the students are out of control. How will she handle obstinate Amish kids and their defensive parents? Matthew is asking if the Amish church is the right fit for him. Will Sarah follow him if he decides to leave the community? Sarah’s mother can’t stay out of it and keeps urging Sarah to pay more attention to Lee, the well behaved Amish man, who helps anyone in the community in need. How will Sarah respond to all of the forces that are pulling her in different directions? She is Davey’s daughter, after all, raised to love and respect the long-held traditions of her people. But will the outside forces become so great that she gives up her parents’ ways and decides to leave her community? Will her father agree to police protection for the vulnerable Amish farmers especially for those who are widowed—or continue to insist that God will provide?

Sweet Olive (Trumpet & Vine Series Book 1)

Judy Christie

Camille Gardner is trapped in the middle when a unique Southern town collides with the “outside world” and big oil.

A talented negotiator, Camille Gardner agrees to take on one last field assignment for her uncle before she settles down to pursue her real passion—working at an art gallery. But she’d rather be anywhere than Samford, Louisiana, the small southern town where she once spent the worst weeks of her life.

To fulfill the obligation she feels to her uncle, Camille needs to entice a group of rural landowners to sell their mineral rights—and allow use of their precious water for the drilling of natural gas. Instead, she finds herself drawn to the local folk art created by those same landowners and attracted to Marsh Cameron, the attorney representing the landowners.

The charming residents and the traditions of this small community leave Camille conflicted about her family obligations—and her own plans for the future. Perhaps she needs to give Samford a second chance.

“Christie populates her story with a varied cast of Southern small-town characters. Her tendency for unresolved suspense is occasionally unsettling, but, overall, her stories have enough warmth and humor to keep her readers coming back for more.” — CBA Retailers + Resources
