The Wish Thief

The Wish Thief

C.D. Verhoff

Soul-stirring fantasy for the holidays that stays with you long after the last page. A teenage girl’s search for the mother lode draws her into a battle against mystical forces.

Glory Alley plans to strike it rich in Queen’s Mesa over the winter break. The money wouldn’t be just for her though. She hopes it will keep her troubled family from self-imploding. Against the odds she finds a treasure beyond compare, but gets more than she bargained for when wicked wybbils, thought to exist only in fairy tales, try to steal it away. Determined to hold onto the prize, she pits her wits against their magical weapons. As the stakes go up, and the clock ticks down, Glory must decide if her ungrateful loved ones are worth the risk.

Add’l Info: The heroine lives on a world similar to present-day Earth with some notable differences. Her planet is two or three thousand years older than ours and Christ hasn’t been born yet. None of the characters have heard of the bible or Jesus. However, the story-beneath-the-story foreshadows His coming. Since the adventure is filtered through Glory’s limited perspective, there are no direct references to Christianity in the book. All is hidden beneath the surface. It is left to the readers to find the symbols and themes that resonate with them, if they so choose. PG-13 equivalent.

Recipient of the Readers’ Favorite 5-Star Medallion.

The perfect novel for Thanksgiving or Christmas. The ending filled me with holiday tears. –Donna

Some of the Christian symbolism seemed like a stretch to me, but people who like that sort of thing will probably love it. Not being of the faith, I chose to focus on the adventure and had a really fun time. –L.R.F.

Glory Alley is a wonderfully likable character with spunk and heart. She finds herself plunged into the world she thought was only a fairy tale–the stunning other-worldly world of the Elboni with Wybbils and a Hoogula. There’s a touch of humor in the story, along with a lot of emotion as Glory tries to help the dysfunctional, sad Alley family–especially Mean Dad, who clearly isn’t a bad guy, but life has dealt him more blows than he can handle. I enjoyed this imaginative book tremendously, rooting for Glory and the whole family. Highly recommended. –Lucy M.

Read it a second time for the symbolism. You will appreciate the story in a whole new light and understand why it’s a good Easter story as well. –Light Reads, Blogger

From start to finish this book was a pleasure to read and ponder. –Jim B.

Before Bethlehem

Before Bethlehem

James J. Flerlage

The Pinnacle of History through the Eyes of a Boy

This spellbinding work of historical fiction offers the eyewitness account of 15-year-old James, son of Joseph bar Jacob, and the dangerous and heartrending choices his family must make in the days leading up to Joseph’s relationship with Mary, and the birth of Jesus of Nazareth.

With crisp prose, tangible description and thought-provoking insights, Before Bethlehem takes readers on a vivid journey to the dusty Galilean village of Nazareth, where Joseph is summoned by Rabbi Boethus, a Sadducean high priest, to marry an orphaned virgin in Jerusalem. By accepting the Rabbi’s request, Joseph unknowingly thrusts himself and his family into a bitter and emotionally draining life-or-death conflict.

Joseph fights to maintain his spiritual integrity while trying desperately to keep his family together and his farm alive. He and James witness abhorring violence at the hands of the Romans, and outlandish abuses of power by their own religious leaders. As his family’s faith and hopes are threatened by scandal and scorn, James struggles between the boy he is and the man he must become.

Before Bethlehem is an eye-opening account of the Nativity story told in a suspenseful, historical context that dares to ask the question: If Joseph should have turned Mary over to be stoned, why didn’t he? His profound answer is one that forever changes the life of his son, James. And it may just change yours, as well.

The Santa Claus Man: The Rise and Fall of a Jazz Age Con Man and the Invention of Christmas in New York

The Santa Claus Man: The Rise and Fall of a Jazz Age Con Man and the Invention of Christmas in New York

Alex Palmer

The true story of John Duval Gluck, Jr., who in 1913 founded the Santa Claus Association, which had the sole authority to answer Santa’s mail in New York City. He ran the organization for 15 years, gaining fame for making the myth of Santa a reality to poor children by arranging for donors to deliver the toys they requested, until a crusading charity commissioner exposed Gluck as a fraud. The story is wide in scope, interweaving a phony Boy Scout group, kidnapping, stolen artwork, and appearances by the era’s biggest stars and New York City’s most famous landmarks. The book is both a personal story and a far-reaching historical one, tracing the history of Christmas celebration in America and the invention of Santa Claus.

A Disruptive Faith: Expect God to Interrupt Your Life

A Disruptive Faith: Expect God to Interrupt Your Life

A.W. Tozer

The word faith is common these days, but placing one’s faith in God is a weighty action, uncommonly fraught with consequence and, by His design, inconvenience. Faith in God is reassuring and comforting only insofar as believers trust Him–and that depth of trust is the mark of a mature Christian who has allowed faith to intrude on his life and shift his gaze away from his own aims, needs, and desires. This is nothing if not a painful and disturbing process.

A Disruptive Faith is A.W. Tozer’s never-before-published teaching on what he termed “faith that perturbs”–faith that contradicts the unbelieving man and threatens the complacency of the Christian. The renowned pastor and teacher insists in these pages that genuine faith breeds dissatisfaction with this life, by God’s design; it weans us from this temporary life and prepares us for the life to come. Readers will learn to be content with this faith-inspired discontent and to experience a fresh hope for eternity with God.
