NOW THAT SHE’S FOUND HER FAMILY,
WHAT WILL SHE DO TO PROTECT THEM?

A WOMAN WHO WON’T BE BULLIED.
Ruth Winslow has finally married off her three younger sisters: she’s free to find a husband of her own. She wants a man with a good heart and a big dream. A man who will treat her as a true partner in marriage. But all the men she’s met in Boston want a woman who’ll say yes, dear and not much else. So she registers to become a mail-order bride.

A MAN WITH A SISTER IN DANGER.
Garrett Richards is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t–his sister Elise married the bank’s loan officer so Garrett wouldn’t lose the family ranch. But Garrett suspects that Elise’s husband abuses her, even though Elise denies it.

When he can’t convince Elise to leave her husband, Garrett struggles to make his late parents’ ranch profitable so he can pay off the mortgage. He believes that once Elise’s childhood home is safe, she’ll leave her miserable excuse for a husband.

A VILLAIN WHO HOLDS ALL THE CARDS.
After Garrett misses a payment, Elise’s husband gives him an ultimatum: pay up in three days or I’ll evict you and your new bride.

Garrett’s between a rock and a hard place, but now he’s got Ruth in his corner, and she’s about to come out swinging–not realizing that Bradford is willing to cheat, steal and murder to get his way. Even Bradford’s own son isn’t safe from his father’s fury.

Can Ruth and Garret protect their family from Bradford’s thugs long enough to expose his evil machinations?

In Faith Parson’s heartwarming romance stories, courageous men and their mail-order brides join together to make a new life on the Western frontier. You can find them all at: http://www.amazon.com/Faith-Parsons/e/B015BZQ192/

Franchising McChurch: Feeding Our Obsession with Easy Christianity

Franchising McChurch: Feeding Our Obsession with Easy Christianity

Thomas White

We live in a fast-food nation, where the service is efficient, the products are peer-tested, and size is king. And this consumer-driven approach is seeping into the church.

Across the country, churches are creating entertaining, pop culture-savvy services that feel more market-driven than ministry. On the menu? A proven blend of dynamic music, high-tech dazzle, and topical teachings. And just like any successful product, churches are launching campuses that build on their brand.

But is the franchised church of today leading to the disenfranchised believers of tomorrow? Though thousands flock to these services, how many lives are truly being changed? Have we traded real truth for relevancy?

Franchising McChurch takes an honest look at the rise of consumer-minded ministries. Authors Thomas White and John Yeats tackle a spiritual shift that is raising provocative issues such as:

The blurry line between entertainment and evangelism
A marketing approach to ministry
The warped yardstick for measuring church success
Feel-good messages that avoid tough truths

Candid and compelling, Franchising McChurch calls us back to the heart of Christ’s church, and shares the Biblical design for delivering meaningful, life-changing ministry in a fast-food world.

“Tatlock’s produced a winner….” – Publishers Weekly

The Brain Fog Fix: Reclaim Your Focus, Memory, and Joy in Just 3 Weeks

The Brain Fog Fix: Reclaim Your Focus, Memory, and Joy in Just 3 Weeks

Mike Dow

Is stress preventing you from enjoying your daily life? Do you find that you’re becoming more distracted or forgetful? Are “the blues” sapping your spirits? Or do you simply feel not quite like yourself?

If you want to reclaim you focus, memory, and joy, you’re not alone. There are millions of people fighting against the epidemic of brain fog that’s sweeping the nation. The good news: It’s not an irreparable condition; rather it’s a side effect of modern-day living.

Many of the foods we eat and the habits we have do not support our brains. We no longer get what we need in order to produce essential brain chemicals that keep us energized, calm, focused, optimistic, and inspired. And even worse, our choices could lead to long-term problems, like dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, and anxiety. Sadly, if you look at the way most of us live, it seems almost as though we’ve chosen a lifestyle deliberately intended to undermine our brain chemistry and our health.

Fortunately, there is a solution. The Brain Fog Fix is an easy-to-follow three-week program designed to help naturally restore three of your brain’s most crucial hormones: serotonin, dopamine, and cortisol. Rebalancing these chemicals will in turn enable the rest of your brain’s chemistry to reach optimal levels. Each week of the program focuses on a different element of your life:

In week 1, you’ll improve your mood by modifying your diet and using cognitive strategies to overcome pitfall thought patterns.
In week 2, you’ll increase your energy by focusing on sleep, exercise, and memory-boosting games.
In week 3, you’ll enhance your spirit through practices that help you connect to something larger than yourself and enable you to rediscover your joy in life.

By the end of this simple program, you’ll be thinking more clearly, remembering more accurately, learning more quickly, and unleashing the floodgates of your creativity. And you’ll simply feel better – for now and in the long term.

Finding the Real Jesus: A Guide for Curious Christians and Skeptical Seekers

Finding the Real Jesus: A Guide for Curious Christians and Skeptical Seekers

Lee Strobel

Who was Jesus —really? For centuries, the Christian church has taught that Jesus is the divine Son of God, crucified for sinners and raised from the dead. In recent years, however, that picture of Jesus has come under widely publicized attack from sources ranging from critical scholars to Internet pundits to popular historians and others. The new portraits of Jesus seem persuasive. You can’t help but wonder … Did Christianity merely copy its beliefs from earlier mythology? Did the church suppress alternate gospels? Did Jesus never die on the cross or rise from the dead for sinners? Is the New Testament hopelessly riddled with errors? New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel helps you separate truth from media hype, sound scholarship from bias, and fact from speculation. Digging below the surface, this book provides credible, informed answers to today’s most pressing questions about Jesus.

Truth Matters: Confident Faith in a Confusing World

Truth Matters: Confident Faith in a Confusing World

Andreas Köstenberger

In an interview with Christianity Today in 2012, Ed Stetzer shared that according to LifeWay research among young adults who had attended church regularly for at least a year in high school, 70% stop attending regularly for at least a year between ages 18-22. However, 35% of these had returned to attending twice a month or more by the time they were surveyed for the study. This means that about 4 out of 10 kids leave the church and NEVER RETURN.

Here is how leading experts describe our church kids today: They are unarmed and incapable of defending their faith. They possess a faith that cannot withstand the scrutiny of trials or intellectual questions. They have a shallow belief system. They lack a robust faith. They haven’t learned how to think. They are embarrassingly ignorant of our faith.

Truth Matters is written directly to this audience, arming them with well-reasoned responses to the accusations that are most likely to appear in their lives, either as upcoming lecture notes and test questions or as inner qualms and questions. Things like: What gives the Bible any authority or credibility? Where is God in a world full of suffering? Why should Christianity be any more believable than any other religious system? And many, many more.

Easy to read yet loaded with meat and substance, this book is a level-headed reaction to those who equate Christian faith with “blind faith,” even those whose subtle or stated goal is to separate students from their religious traditions. Readers will discover the kind of historical information and thinking skills that build a sturdy backbone of confidence in high schoolers and young adults, making them able to defend by “reasoned faith” what the Bible claims as truth.

Loosely organized around the theological skepticism of New York Times bestselling author (and southern college educator) Bart Ehrman, this jam-packed counterclaim is a book that parents will want to buy for their kids, a book that youth and student leaders will want to work through one-on-one and in discipleship groups—a book that could prove a lifesaver for young minds and hearts everywhere.

Romans (St. Andrew's Expositional Commentary)

Romans (St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary)

R. C. Sproul

Sproul’s sermons at St. Andrew’s Chapel are the foundation of these never-before-published expositions on Paul’s epistle to the Romans.

Chrysostom had it read aloud to him once a week. Augustine, Luther, and Wesley all came to assured faith through its impact. The Reformers saw it as the God-given key to understanding the whole of Scripture.

Throughout church history the study of the book of Romans has been pivotal to understanding Christian life and doctrine. Convinced that “Paul’s fullest, grandest, most comprehensive statement of the gospel” is just as vital today, R. C. Sproul delivered nearly sixty sermons on Romans from October 2005 to April 2007 at St. Andrew’s Chapel, where he has pastored for more than a decade. These never-before-published, passage-by-passage expositions will enrich any study of this weighty epistle. Part of the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentaries series.
