Phoebe and the Rock of Ages: The Gustafson Girls Book 3 (Christian Fiction Series)

Phoebe and the Rock of Ages: The Gustafson Girls Book 3 (Christian Fiction Series)

Becky Doughty

A wild child. A Jesus freak. What will happen when their worlds collide?

MEET PHOEBE GUSTAFSON
Phoebe Gustafson has been running wild her whole life. A gifted artist, she portrays people and places the way she wishes they were, not the way she really sees them. Her jaded perspective is born out of disillusionment, betrayal, and loss, and of memories too painful to dwell on. Rather than face the past, Phoebe charges full throttle into the future, never investing in anything or anyone for longer than it takes to finish a job.

When a family emergency and the charming, unconventional Jesus freak, Trevor Zander, converge on her life at the same time, will Phoebe find the courage to remove her blinders and discolored filters so she can truly see life, and love–and herself–the way they really are?

MEET THE GUSTAFSON GIRLS
When Paul and Simone Gustafson are killed by a drunk driver, the lives of their daughters change irrevocably. Although raised by loving grandparents, it’s the G-FOURce–the Gustafson Four Sisters Club–that binds them together when their differences would tear them apart. All grown up now, Juliette has become the quintessential doormat, Renata, the self-appointed matriarchal figure. Phoebe is, at least according to Renata, borderline narcissistic, and Gia is on the verge of a major identity crisis.

Then there’s Angela Clinton, the senior class darling who drove her cherry black 1970 el Camino into the side of their parents’ car on the night of Juliette’s high school graduation. Angela’s prison sentence is winding down; soon she’ll be eligible for parole and moving back to town. Will the G-FOURce be strong enough to hold them together as they step into the eye of the storm that’s been brewing for the last fifteen years? Will they finally be able to let go of the past and embrace the future, no matter what it holds?

Note: The Gustafson Girls series is Women’s Fiction/Christian Romance written from a Christian world view.

Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre

Mini Farming: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre

Brett L. Markham

Mini Farming describes a holistic approach to small-area farming that will show you how to produce 85 percent of an average family’s food on just a quarter acre—and earn $10,000 in cash annually while spending less than half the time that an ordinary job would require. Even if you have never been a farmer or a gardener, this book covers everything you need to know to get started: buying and saving seeds, starting seedlings, establishing raised beds, soil fertility practices, composting, dealing with pest and disease problems, crop rotation, farm planning, and much more. Because self-suf?ciency is the objective, subjects such as raising backyard chickens and home canning are also covered along with numerous methods for keeping costs down and production high. Materials, tools, and techniques are detailed with photographs, tables, diagrams, and illustrations.

What Is God's Will for My Life?

What Is God’s Will for My Life?

John Ortberg

Let’s face it: making decisions is hard—especially when it comes to the big stuff like, Should I marry this person? Am I in the wrong job? What should I do with my life? We know that God has a plan for us, but how are we supposed to know what that plan is?

In What Is God’s Will for My Life?, bestselling author John Ortberg helps us understand:

If God’s will for my life is so important, why doesn’t he just tell me what it is?
How can I learn to recognize God’s voice?
If I miss God’s guidance on an important decision, am I stuck with “plan B” for the rest of my life?

God does have a plan for your life! It’s time to discover what it is.

Shaped by the Gospel: Doing Balanced, Gospel-Centered Ministry in Your City (Center Church)

Shaped by the Gospel: Doing Balanced, Gospel-Centered Ministry in Your City (Center Church)

Timothy Keller

It is easy to assume that if we understand the gospel and preach it faithfully, our ministry will necessarily be shaped by it—but this is not true. Many churches claim to be gospel-centered but do not have a ministry that is shaped by, centered on, and empowered through the gospel. The implications of the gospel have not yet worked their way into the fabric of how that church does ministry.

Gospel-centered ministry is more theologically driven than program driven. To pursue it, we must spend time reflecting on the essence, the truths, and the very patterns of the gospel itself. The gospel is neither religion nor irreligion, but something else entirely—a third way of relating to God through grace. In Shaped by the Gospel, bestselling author and pastor Timothy Keller addresses several current discussion and conflicts about the nature of the gospel and shows how faithful preaching of the gospel leads to individual and corporate renewal.

This new edition contains the first section of Center Church in an easy-to-read format with new reflections and additional essays from Timothy Keller and several other contributors.

Look and Live: Behold the Soul-Thrilling, Sin-Destroying Glory of Christ

Look and Live: Behold the Soul-Thrilling, Sin-Destroying Glory of Christ

Matt Papa

Only One Addiction Can Set You Free

Matt Papa was a “professional Christian” in full-time ministry, ready and determined to change the world. All the while he was depressed, addicted to the approval of others, and enslaved to sin. But then everything changed. He encountered the glory of God.

All of us live in the tension between where we are and where we ought to be. We try our best to bully our desires into submission. And we all know, this is exhausting.

Are you tired? Stuck? Still fighting the same sin you’ve been fighting for years? The call in these pages is not to work or to strive, but to lift your eyes. You don’t need more willpower. You need a vision of greatness that sweeps you off your feet. You need to see glory.

Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

Look and Live.

“Matt has helped me see that love for God grows out of an experience of beholding the love of God. We burn only as we behold. . . . This is a fantastic book and I commend it to you with the most enthusiastic support.”–from the Foreword by J.D. Greear

“Matt Papa cares about the glory of God, and you can sense that zeal on every page of this dynamic book. He also cares about you and me getting to grips with that glory. . . . Matt guides us through these pages with kindness, seriousness, and love–for God’s greater glory and our greater good.”–Matt Redman, songwriter and worship leader

“Making our lives about one unflinching gaze upon the glory of Christ–what a vision Matt Papa has put before us. I encourage everyone to read this book!”–Tony Merida, pastor, professor, and author

“Matt Papa’s book is a snakebite kit for suffering sinners. Each sentence of Look and Live extracts Satan’s deadly venom and resuscitates the soul with the life-giving power of the glory of God!”–Tony Nolan, snakebite survivor, author, and gospel preacher

“To journey through this book is to go on a quest that will awaken our souls to the reality of the One who is ‘majestic in holiness’ and ‘awesome in glorious deeds.'”–Dr. Brent Crowe, author, speaker, and vice president of Student Leadership University

“I have been wonderfully blessed by Matt Papa’s friendship and ministry. I am grateful his reflections on worship are now shared in Look and Live. It is biblically faithful and keeps the focus of worship where it belongs: on our glorious God.”–Daniel L. Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Matt Papa faithfully points us to the soul-stirring glory of God. Read this book and allow your heart to once again behold the wondrous mystery.”–Matt Boswell, founder of Doxology & Theology, and pastor of ministries and worship at Providence Church, Frisco, Texas

“This is Matt’s life message–that Jesus Christ alone is worth living for, and that when you gaze upon His majesty and glory you will never be the same. This book is theologically robust and practically helpful, packed with Scripture and insight into the person and work of the risen Son of God. . . . This is a true gift to the church.”–Clayton King, president of Crossroads Camps and Clayton King Ministries

“If C. S. Lewis and David Crowder wrote a book together about worship, you would have the rich theology of the great Christian apologist with the deep passion of worship from the contemporary artist. That’s what Matt Papa has given us in Look and Live–a must-read for every worshiper.”–Mike Harland, president of LifeWay Worship

Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers: Finding Freedom from Hurt and Hate

Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers: Finding Freedom from Hurt and Hate

Dr. Leslie Leyland Fields

“If our families are to flourish, we will need to learn and practice ways of forgiving those who have had the greatest impact upon us: our mothers and fathers.”

Do you struggle with the deep pain of a broken relationship with a parent?
Leslie Leyland Fields and Dr. Jill Hubbard invite you to walk with them as they explore the following questions:

What does the Bible say about forgiveness? Why must we forgive at all?
How do we honor those who act dishonorably toward us, especially when those people are as influential as our parents? Can we ever break free from the “sins of our fathers”?
What does forgiveness look like in the lives of real parents and children? Does forgiveness mean I have to let an estranged parent back into my life? Is it possible to forgive a parent who has passed away?

Through the authors’ own compelling personal stories combined with a fresh look at the Scriptures, Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers illustrates and instructs in the practice of authentic forgiveness, leading you away from hate and hurt toward healing, hope, and freedom.

“A call to very hard, but very vital, work of the soul.”

—Dr. Henry Cloud, leadership expert, psychologist, and best-selling author

“Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers is essential reading for anyone who wants to deal with those hurts in a constructive, healing, and God-honoring manner.”

—Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family

“Leslie Leyland Fields and Jill Hubbard take us into raw, messy stories so we can be transformed by that mysterious and painful grace in the force called forgiveness.”

—Scot McKnight, Northern Seminary

Katie McKenna leads a perfect life. She has a fulfilling job, a cute apartment, and a wedding to plan with her soon-to-be fiancé, Dexter. She can think of a billion reasons why she should marry Dexter. He’s everything she wants in a husband.

A Promise in Defiance: Romance in the Rockies Book 3

HEather Blanton

CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES…EVEN FOR THE REDEEMED. When Charles McIntyre founded Defiance, he was more than happy to rule in hell rather than serve in heaven. But things have changed. Now, he has faith, a new wife…and a ten-year-old half-breed son. Infamous madam Delilah Goodnight wants to take it all away from him. How can he protect his kingdom and his loved ones from her schemes without falling back on his past? How does he fight evil if not with evil?

Logan Tillane carries a Bible in his hand, wears a gun on his hip, and fights for lost souls any way he can. Newly arrived in Defiance, he has trouble, though, telling saints from sinners. The challenge only worsens when Delilah flings open the doors to the scandalous Crystal Chandelier. She and the new preacher have opposite plans for the town. One wants to save it, one wants to lead it straight to hell.

For Tillane and McIntyre, finding redemption was a long, hard road. God’s grace has washed away their sins, but the consequences remain and God will not be mocked. For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap…and the harvest is finally at hand.

WARNING: This author attempts to be historically accurate. The story, therefore, contains situations regarding bigotry and racism that some readers may find offensive. Obviously, they do NOT reflect the personal views of the author.

Until the Harvest (Appalachian Blessings Book #2)

Sarah Loudin Thomas

Take This Journey of Broken Souls Restored and Tentative Hearts Brought Fully to Life

When family tragedy derails Henry Phillips’s college studies, he’s left unmoored and feeling abandoned. The only things that can tamp down his grief are the family farm, his fiddle, and an unexpected friendship with sweet but unusual preteen Mayfair Hoffman.

Unfortunately, Mayfair’s older sister, Margaret, despite her spray of freckles and cute, turned-up nose, has a completely different effect. His grandmother’s helper, she’s always around, ready to push his buttons, and it seems at first that she doesn’t care about his troubles.

Henry soon realizes, though, that Margaret’s facing her own struggles. Mayfair’s health and unique gift sit at the heart of those worries. Henry and Margaret soon find themselves relying on each other as potential tragedy collides with growing hope in a warm story of family bonds and the surprising ways healing finds us all.

“Once in a while a new author . . . makes you sit up and take notice.”–Library Journal starred review for Miracle in a Dry Season

“Thomas’ second Appalachian Blessings novel, after Miracle in a Dry Season, uses grief, choice, and consequence to guide the plot into unexpected turns while gently reflecting on Christian healing and scripture. . . . Relaxed in pace yet clear in purpose, Thomas’ lovely inspirational novel examines the struggle to identify and accept love and to learn to love someone in spite of his or her flaws.”–Booklist

“Until the Harvest shines with its depth of character development and relationships. . . . A novel that will resonate with readers with its profound but simple lessons of love and loyalty.” –CBA Retailers + Resources

“True to form, the characters are warm and deep, and readers feel an immediate connection to them. The small-town feel is just what this story needs to be successful, and Thomas paints the setting beautifully. This followup story will delight readers of Thomas’ previous novel, but it reads perfectly as a standalone as well.”–RT Book Reviews, Top Pick
