Brad Whittington

#2 in Fiction / #1 in Christian Fiction (December 2012)

Can you keep a secret? Mark Cloud isn’t sure he buys the whole God thing anymore. The problem is, he can’t really tell anyone. Especially not his dad, the Baptist preacher.

As the last of the modern nomads, a preacher’s family is always on the move, and Mark has learned to cope with life as the new kid in town. At least he’s in a town.

Until he is whisked away behind the Pine Curtain of East Texas to the microscopic community of Fred. There, his urban coping skills fall flat as he fumbles every attempt to fit in. And the girl of his dreams is immune to his Sixties counterculture charm.

But these frustrations fade in comparison to the crisis prompted by a dusty book he finds lodged between the stacks on the library. Before it’s over, Mark will have to face his doubts. And his father.

This award-winning novel is a moving and hilarious coming-of-age story set against the vibrant backdrop of the 1960s and rural America.

eBook extras: Reader’s Guide, 900+ SAT words, Preview of Living with Fred

Cherish: The One Word That Changes Everything for Your Marriage

Cherish: The One Word That Changes Everything for Your Marriage

Gary L. Thomas

“Most marriages survive by gritting teeth and holding on. But marriages can and will not only survive but thrive when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another.”

Those are the powerful words of bestselling author Gary Thomas in his newest book—Cherish. And in a world desperate for marriage redemption, it is needed now more than ever.

Thomas shows that although there are a countless number of marriages consisting of two people just going through the motions, there are real ways this pattern can be reversed: when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another in proven, loving, and everyday actions and words.

Through personal stories and real world examples, Thomas proves what husbands and wives can begin doing today to turn their marriage around—even a marriage marred by neglect and disrespect.

So how do you cherish your spouse? Thomas will show you how going out of your way to notice them, appreciate them, honor them, encourage them, and hold them close to your heart will bring hope, light, and life into your marriage.

Move Toward the Mess: The Ultimate Fix for a Boring Christian Life

John Hambrick

If your church service feels like a failed pep rally that never leads to the actual game, then it’s time for you to follow Jesus onto the field where the opposition is real and the stakes are extraordinary. It will get messy. It won’t always be comfortable. But you’ll make a difference. And you’ll discover that nobody’s bored out there. Nobody.

But Jeremiah Calhoun Is Very Handsome, Very Alive, and Very Perplexed.
Most Inconvenient Indeed.
With few options of her own, nurse Abigail Stuart agrees to marry her patient, a gravely wounded soldier calling himself Jeremiah Calhoun.

How can she convince him that she isn’t trying to steal his farm? And will she find a way to stay, even though this practical arrangement has turned into a most inconvenient marriage?

The Bug Man Collection: First the Dead, Less than Dead, Ends of the Earth, and Nick of Time (A Bug Man Novel)

The Bug Man Collection: First the Dead, Less than Dead, Ends of the Earth, and Nick of Time (A Bug Man Novel)

Tim Downs

All four novels from the Bug Man series now available in one e-book collection.

First the Dead

Nick tries to find a killer in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina’s attack on New Orleans. But the more he digs the stronger—and deadlier—the resistance becomes. Nick is there to collect bodies, and he’s going to do just that—especially when he starts finding bodies that were clearly dead before the hurricane. He understands that all forensic evidence will soon disintegrate in the hot, contaminated water . . . and he knows that’s exactly what the killer wants to happen.

Less than Dead

Nick has finally met his match. When a grave is discovered on property owned by the front-running candidate for the next presidential election, the FBI immediately becomes involved. The graves then vanish and Nick follows local legend to the bizarre Alena who keeps to herself in the mountains of Northern Virginia, training cadaver dogs. Together they discover that this small town—and the presidential-hopeful—have closets full of skeletons.

Ends of the Earth

Nick struggles to protect a victim’s family from agro-terrorists in North Carolina. After dissecting the remains of a bale of marijuana scattered in the tomato fields, Nick learns that the South American marijuana is strangely infested with a common North Carolina insect: the tobacco hornworm. To further confound the mystery, the bugs are infected with a fungus from Asia, and Nick begins to suspect his victim wasn’t killed because of the marijuana, but because of the insects it contained. He then discovers that a vicious agricultural scheme is underway to cripple US corn and ethanol production.

Nick of Time

The Bug Man is getting married on Saturday . . . if his fiancée can find him.

Forensic entomologist Nick Polchak lives in a world of maggots and blow flies and decomposing bodies. No wonder he’s still single.

But Nick has finally found a woman as strange as he is—dog trainer Alena Savard, a woman who is odd, reclusive, and can seemingly talk to animals. It was a match made in heaven.

Nick and Alena are scheduled to be married on Saturday—but there’s one small problem. Nick has disappeared.

Caught up in a murder case involving an old friend, Nick finds himself on a manhunt that’s drawing him farther and farther from the church where Alena is waiting. But will he make it back in time? Could Nick’s single-minded focus cause him to forget his own wedding? Is he really pursuing a killer, or is he running away from something else?
