True Friendship

True Friendship

Vaughan Roberts

In a culture where online communications and communities can be set up in seconds, it is striking that loneliness is still rampant. Even in the church, a place where we might hope for an oasis of love and acceptance, we can find interactions awkward and superficial.

It’s for this reason that Vaughan Roberts takes us back to the Bible, and challenges us to consider our need for true friendship. He’s both honest and clear in his approach as he shows us that knowing and being known by God is the hope we need to begin to deal with the sickness of our ‘self–love’ society.

So whatever the state of your friendships, take heart and take hold of this book – because as you do, you’ll see that we can live out our true humanity as we sacrificially love others for God’s glory.

Each chapter includes thoughtful reflection and discussion questions to help change us as we read, as well as practical suggestions for how we can make a real difference to our friendships.

The Great Evangelical Recession: 6 Factors That Will Crash the American Church...and How to Prepare

The Great Evangelical Recession: 6 Factors That Will Crash the American Church…and How to Prepare

John S. Dickerson

The American church is on the precipice of a spiritual recession. Our overall membership is shrinking. Young Christians are fleeing. Our donations are drying up. Political fervor is dividing us. Even as these crises eat at the church internally, the once friendly host culture of the United States is quickly turning hostile and antagonistic. How can we avoid a devastating collapse?

In The Great Evangelical Recession, award-winning journalist and pastor John Dickerson identifies six factors that are radically eroding the American church and offers biblical solutions to prepare us for spiritual success, even in the face of alarming trends.

If you care about the state of the church in America, this is both your wake-up call and your road map to genuine hope.

“A brilliant book. A must-read for any Christian hoping to see their faith regain traction in a changing world.”–Gabe Lyons, author, The Next Christians; founder, Q Ideas

“John Dickerson is that rarity among evangelicals–a journalist of the highest capacity, but more than that, an analyst of breadth, insight, and laser-sharp foresight. With persuasive force, his book portrays the future status and functioning of the church in a national culture that is alienated from Christianity. Few writers can gather, process, distill, and apply a host of facts with the precision of John Dickerson.”–John McCandlish Phillips, veteran New York Times journalist and author

“An important book that every believer should not only read but heed.”–Cal Thomas, USA Today columnist and Fox News personality

“John Dickerson has pulled together some sobering statistics and laid out a biblical game plan for dealing with the inevitable cultural changes that lie ahead. These aren’t changes that might occur. They are changes that have occurred (the horse-is-already-out-of-the-barn-type changes). I would encourage every Christian leader to read, ponder, and consider the facts and the strategies John presents in The Great Evangelical Recession. It will help prepare you for the future.”–Larry Osborne, pastor and author, North Coast Church, Vista CA

“Nobody likes getting a bad diagnosis–whether it’s medical, financial, or spiritual. But once we get past the reality that things aren’t the way we thought they were, we’re actually in the best position to turn our circumstances around for the good. John Dickerson’s workup on the health and welfare of the evangelical cause may jolt your spiritual senses, but he’s followed it up with a prescription that will work. There’s no gloom or doom in The Great Evangelical Recession–just an honest assessment of where we are and solid hope for what we need to do to get to where we need to be.”–Dr. Tim Kimmel, author of Grace-Based Parenting and In Praise of Plan B

“The Great Evangelical Recession has gone a long way in contextualizing the plight of the church in today’s culture. There is no question that the church has weakened over these last few decades, and before we can expect our Lord to bring healing and revitalization to its health, there must be a humble truthfulness to our condition. John Dickerson’s work has served us well in bringing sense to what brought us to this point and providing honest reflection upon it. I believe we could once again see a dynamic and powerful witness to our world from believers honoring their Lord and bringing glory to their heavenly Father.”–Dr. Darryl DelHousaye, president of Phoenix Seminary

Manuscript for Murder (The Hartfield Mysteries Book 1)

Manuscript for Murder (The Hartfield Mysteries Book 1)

Chautona Havig

Alexa Hartfield. Author, local celebrity, fashion connoisseur. She chose Fairbury for its close proximity to Rockland, its small town atmosphere, and its low crime rate.

Then someone made her life a literary cliché. A mysterious accident with a light bulb sparked an interesting idea for her latest novel—and for Fairbury’s new serial killer. The first replication infuriated her. The second left an even worse taste in her mouth. The third blasted more than her self-confidence, and the fourth beat her down so far she’s considering giving up writing completely.

Who is killing Fairbury’s citizens, and furthermore, why and how are they using her novels to do it?

Adrianne Thorpe has watched as both her twin brother and her sister have had love enter their lives in the past few months. With one already married and the other in a serious relationship, she has had to watch them live out her dream. Though she has dated plenty over the years, Adrianne hasn’t found the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with. Does she just have impossibly high standards? Or is it the small voice in her head telling her that no man would really love her that keeps her from letting anyone get close enough to touch her heart?

From the moment Connor Mackenzie learns that his sister Rebecca is married to Alex Thorpe, he knows his past has come back to haunt him. After over a decade of working in some of the most dangerous areas of the world, he had plans to retire so he could move closer to his sister and nephew. Doing that now will mean being in almost constant contact with the woman who, as a teenager, he had rejected most cruelly. Has she been able to get over their hurt-filled past? Or will he be forced to reconsider where he spends his time post-retirement?

At a time when she is struggling to rearrange the plans and dreams she has for her life, the last thing Adrianne needs is the person she’d loved and lost in high school stepping back into her life. Connor is grateful that Adrianne seems willing—albeit rather reluctantly—to accept his presence in her life because of Alex and Rebecca.. As he spends time around her, Connor realizes that the reason she’s lingered in his thoughts over the years isn’t just because of regret

Will Adrianne be able to see the genuine regret Connor has for their past and give him a second chance to be the man he should have been the first time around? Or will her hurt blind her to the realization of her dreams and the possibility that God has plans for her and Connor?

Stayed tuned for the sixth (and final!) Christian romance book in the BlackThorpe Security series coming late fall 2016.

Harvest of Rubies

Harvest of Rubies

Tessa Afshar

The prophet Nehemiah’s cousin can speak numerous languages, keep complex accounts, write on rolls of parchment and tablets of clay, and solve great mysteries. There is only one problem: she’s a woman in a man’s court.

In her early childhood years, Sarah experienced the death of her mother and her father’s subsequent emotional distance, and she came to two conclusions: God does not care about me, and my accomplishments are the measure of my worth.

Catapulted into the center of the Persian court, Sarah is working too many hours, rubbing elbows with royalty, and solving intrigues for the Queen. Ironically, it isn’t failure—but success—that causes Sarah to lose her only source of external validation.

Sarah soon learns that she has something of worth to offer beyond her ability with languages and sums; her very being proves to be a blessing to others, particularly the aristocrat Darius, whom she is given to in marriage.

Sarah and Darius’ story continues in Harvest of Gold. Darius may be able to learn to love his wife, but can he ever learn to trust Sarah and her Lord?
