Kept

Kept

Sally Bradley

“Gutsy and fast-paced.”—Laura Frantz, author of Love’s Reckoning

“One of the most surprising and best books I’ve read this year.”—MaryLu Tyndall, best-selling author of Legacy of the King’s Pirates series

Life has taught Miska Tomlinson that there are no honorable men. Her womanizing brothers, her absentee father, and Mark, the married baseball player who claims to love her—all have proven undependable. But Miska has life under control. She runs her editing business from her luxury condo, stays fit with daily jogs along Chicago’s lakefront, and in her free time blogs anonymously about life as a kept woman.

Enter new neighbor Dillan Foster. Between his unexpected friendship and her father’s sudden reappearance, Miska loses control of her orderly life. Her relationship with Mark deteriorates, and Miska can’t help comparing him to Dillan. His religious views are so foreign, yet the way he treats her is something she’s longed for. But Dillan discovers exactly who she is and what she has done. Too late she finds herself longing for a man who is determined to never look her way again.

When her blog receives unexpected national press, Miska realizes that her anonymity was an illusion. Caught in a scandal about to break across the nation, Miska wonders if the God Dillan talks about would bother with a woman like her—a woman who’s gone too far and done too much.

“Vibrant characters, compelling questions, modern-day issues… Kept is a contemporary Christian classic along the lines of Redeeming Love. Impossible to put down, this story pulls us into the heart of Chicago and shows us how God’s hand can work, even when we repeatedly make the wrong choices. Sally Bradley’s voice is gripping and clear, and her debut is a shining beacon of how very relevant Christian fiction can be.”—Heather Day Gilbert, author of God’s Daughter and Miranda Warning.

Praying for the Prodigal – Encouragement and Practical Advice While Waiting for the Prodigal to Return

Andrea Merrell

Eighty-eight percent of children raised in an evangelical Christian home will leave the church by the age of eighteen. Most will turn away from authority, parental values, and biblical teaching, losing their potential, their health, and their destiny — sometimes even their life. As a parent, guardian, or loved one, what can you do to prevent this from happening? If it does happen, how do you fight the battle? Is there hope?

In Praying for the Prodigal, Andrea Merrell shares her journey with not one but two prodigals, and how God protected them, restored them, and brought them back from the very flames of death and hell. She gives you practical survival tips to help you keep your sanity in the midst of the crisis, such as establishing boundaries, avoiding the blame game, and learning how to pray the Word of God over your children daily. You will be encouraged by advice straight from the prodigals, and your faith will be strengthened by thirty days of prayers and Scriptures. This book will equip you for the battle ahead and help you hold fast to God’s promises, reminding you to never, never give up on your children — no matter how hopeless the situation may seem.

Searching for Jesus: New Discoveries in the Quest for Jesus of Nazareth---and How They Confirm the Gospel Accounts

Searching for Jesus: New Discoveries in the Quest for Jesus of Nazareth—and How They Confirm the Gospel Accounts

Robert J. Hutchinson

“What if everything the Gospels say
about Jesus… his words, his deeds, his plans… actually turn out to
be… true?” In this exhaustively researched new life of
Jesus, award-winning writer Robert J. Hutchinson argues that Jesus was
not an “apocalyptic prophet” who thought the world was about to end.
Jesus was not a “zealot” revolutionary who wanted to kill the Romans.
Jesus was not a Greek Cynic philosopher. Jesus was not an orthodox rabbi
who accidentally got himself killed by causing a disturbance in the
Temple. Jesus was not a world-hating Gnostic. Jesus was not a delusional
fanatic who tricked his followers into following him.

Instead, the author says, recent research suggests that Jesus was just as the Gospels describe him: a fiery, courageous,
charismatic populist who drew crowds by the tens of thousands and
electrified all of Palestine with his strange and exhilarating
announcement of God’s kingdom in their midst. Jesus reached out to the
most wretched and despised people in society — the demon-possessed, the
deformed, those afflicted with horrible contagious diseases,
prostitutes, even soldiers of an occupation army. Hutchinson shows that
many of the negative ideas about Jesus paraded in the media every
Christmas and Easter are increasingly obsolete. These obsolete
portraits of Jesus, the author says, are based on assumptions, theories
and unproven hypotheses that are more than a century old and that have
been discredited by more recent research.

Written for skeptics and believers alike, Searching for Jesus
reveals how the Gospels are truer than many people have been led to
believe — and Jesus of Nazareth, far from being less than is described in the Gospels, is actually much bigger… and far more interesting.

The Joy Model: A Step-by-Step Guide to Peace, Purpose, and Balance

The Joy Model: A Step-by-Step Guide to Peace, Purpose, and Balance

Jeff Spadafora

Management consultant and Christian life coach Jeff Spadafora provides a blueprint for building a life of greater joy and delivers a plan for frustrated believers to become joyful followers.

An increasing number of adult American Christians are frustrated. Even as they read their Bibles, listen to sermons, and hang out with other Christians, they become painfully aware that something is missing: joy. As a result, many have given up on their faith being a source of joy, and instead they seek meaning, purpose, and joy through their work, relationships, hobbies, possessions, or even more destructive and hollow substitutes.

In The Joy Model, Jeff Spadafora offers a better way, showing readers that joy comes from balancing the practical and spiritual sides of our lives—from the “Doing” and the “Being” of the Christian life. On the spiritual side, he reveals tried and true disciplines that move readers from knowing about God to actually experiencing him. On the practical side, he shows how to transform relationships, attitudes, finances, and work in ways that result in significant increases in joy. Weaving together his own spiritual journey, stories from his experience coaching others, and down-to-earth principles and practices, Spadafora helps readers find the joy in a life that is more vibrant and real than any they have experienced before.

God Is Red: The Secret Story of How Christianity Survived and Flourished in Communist China

God Is Red: The Secret Story of How Christianity Survived and Flourished in Communist China

Liao Yiwu

In God is Red, Chinese dissident journalist and poet Liao Yiwu—once lauded, later imprisoned, and now celebrated author of For a Song and a Hundred Songs and The Corpse Walker—profiles the extraordinary lives of dozens of Chinese Christians, providing a rare glimpse into the underground world of belief that is taking hold within the officially atheistic state of Communist China. Liao felt a kinship with Chinese Christians in their unwavering commitment to the freedom of expression and to finding meaning in a tumultuous society, even though he is not a Christian himself. This is a fascinating tale of otherwise unknown personalities thriving against all odds. God is Red will resonate with readers of Phillip Jenkins’ The Lost History of Christianity and Peter Hessler’s Country Driving.

Living Among Lions: How to Thrive like Daniel in Today's Babylon

Living Among Lions: How to Thrive like Daniel in Today’s Babylon

David Benham

Meet Daniel. A Transformed Man Who Transformed His World.

What does an ancient Jewish prophet have to do with modern America? What, if anything, can we learn from a man who lived 2,400 years ago as a captive in the land we now call Iraq? As it turns out, quite a bit.

David and Jason Benham are convinced the biblical example of Daniel holds the keys to contemporary Christians living victoriously in a world increasingly hostile to people of faith. Like Daniel, many believers today find themselves in an unfriendly environment, one opposed to the God they serve. Yet, like Daniel, they must learn how to take a stand while serving the people around them.

Living Among Lions is for Christian brothers and sisters who have the potential to transform their world but find themselves standing in the shadows wondering how to respond in an unfriendly environment. Divided into three sections, Living Among Lions covers three distinct characteristics that made Daniel strong: Conviction, Commitment, and Courage.

Daniel possessed all of these qualities and lived them out. As a result, God gave him unprecedented favor and supernatural power. A mere slave living in exile, Daniel emerged as one of the most powerful men in the known world. Daniel’s conviction, commitment, and courage empowered him not merely to survive in Babylon but to thrive. He did not conform to his world; he transformed his world.

30 Events That Shaped the Church: Learning from Scandal, Intrigue, War, and Revival

30 Events That Shaped the Church: Learning from Scandal, Intrigue, War, and Revival

Alton Gansky

The church of today did not appear on the earth fully formed but developed over the centuries through historical events that, while they may seem distant, have a direct effect on our everyday lives. Following Jesus’s command to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth, the apostles and their spiritual descendants have grown the church through times of peace and times of war, through persecution and pilgrimage. The church that began as a rag-tag group of Middle Eastern fishermen, tax collectors, and zealots became the multi-ethnic, multifaceted church of today.

Now thirty of those course-altering events are brought to life by consummate storyteller Alton Gansky. Spanning twenty centuries of history, this lively book will entertain and educate readers who love history and who want to know why the church is the way it is today.

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
