Genius of Guinness: The Enduring Legacy of an Irish Dynasty

Genius of Guinness: The Enduring Legacy of an Irish Dynasty

Michele Guinness

When Arthur Guinness sunk his meager savings into a small brewery on the banks of the River Liffey in Dublin, he could not have foreseen the dynasty of brewers and bankers that would carry on his family name. But Guinness also produced another kind of spirit, an extraordinary line of missionary explorers, clerics, and pioneer social workers.
More famous in his day than his brewing cousins, teetotaler Henry Grattan Guinness forsook his earthly inheritance to preach the gospel to thousands and witnessed true revival. His children and grandchildren ventured to unknown lands, risked disease and death, and fearlessly confronted Western governments about the mistreatment of natives in their colonies. They also introduced social and moral reforms to the poverty-stricken East End of London.
The tension between God and Mammon is a recurrent theme in a family pulled in two directions by earthly wealth and heavenly reward. Spanning two hundred years and five generations of perhaps the most famous family in the world, this history chronicles the Guinness family’s meteoric rise to its bitterest tragedies, its fame and its reversals of fortune.
Michele Guinness, with inside access to diaries, letters, and personal recollections, tells the story of the Guinness family from their inauspicious eighteenth-century beginnings down to the present day.

Fascinating Stories of Forgotten Lives (Great Lives Series)

Fascinating Stories of Forgotten Lives (Great Lives Series)

Charles R. Swindoll

Would you rather be a person of significance or a person of prominence?

Think carefully! The answer to that question will shape your entire future.

Pastor, teacher, and beloved author Charles Swindoll says, “Somehow life has taught us poorly. We’re trained to think that the most significant people are star athletes, actors, and musicians—the ones we applaud, those whose autographs we seek, those who have worldly renown.

“They aren’t. Not really. Most often, the people really worth noting are those who turn a ‘nobody’ into a ‘somebody’ but never receive credit.” What is forgotten far too often is this: Success in God’s kingdom and in the church depends upon faithful people the public rarely knows.

The Old Testament contains numerous fascinating stories of forgotten lives—unsung heroes whose actions, sacrifices, or battles failed to ascribe them worldly renown. These great lives, however, reveal significant people whom God honors in the pages of His Word and, therefore, deserve our serious attention and emulation.

Adino took out eight hundred armed, skilled fighting men with his sword.
Eleazar attacked the Philistines by himself for so long that his comrades had to pry his sword out of his grip.
Shammah, while his companions ran like scared cats from their enemies, stood his ground—alone—and was victorious.

And yet, did you recall any of their names? They’re not on the rolls of the rich and famous. Still, they are significant.

In this eighth volume of the bestselling Great Lives from God’s Word series, Chuck will examine little-remembered Bible characters and events. He will help you discover biblical principles and practical applications for living so that you can be who you are in God’s estimation . . . a person of true significance.

When Love Blooms

When Love Blooms

Robin Lee Hatcher

From the moment Gavin Blake set eyes on Emily Harris he knew she would never make it in the rugged high country where backbreaking work and constant hardship were commonplace. She would wilt there like a rose without water. He’d be sending her back to Boise before the first snows. He’d be willing to bet on it.She could say what she wanted. Emily Harris didn’t belong in the hard life of the Blakes. Beautiful and refined, she was accustomed to the best life had to offer. Heaven only knew why she wanted to leave Boise to teach two young girls on a ranch miles from nowhere. He’d wager it had to do with a man. It always did when a beautiful woman was involved. Emily wanted to make some sort of mark on the world before marriage. She wanted to be more than just a society wife. Though she had plenty of opportunities back East, she had come to the Idaho high country looking to make a difference. Gavin’s resistance to her presence made her even more determined to prove herself. Perhaps changing the heart of one man might make the greatest difference of all.

Double Cross (FBI: Houston Book 2)

DiAnn Mills

FBI Agent Laurel Evertson’s investigation into a scam targeting the elderly takes an unexpected twist when key evidence leads her to Morton Wilmington, a felon she arrested five years ago on her first undercover assignment. That case has haunted her since, and though she’s vowed to forget Wilmington—and what she sacrificed to put him away—he is now her best lead.

Houston Police Officer Daniel Hilton fears his grandparents may be the scammer’s next targets, and he’ll do anything to protect his family—even force interagency cooperation. But he’s quickly drawn to Laurel’s empathy and zeal and agrees to follow her lead . . . even if it means teaming up with a felon.

As the unlikely trio uncovers evidence suggesting the scam is more extensive and deadly than they imagined, both Laurel and Daniel find themselves in the crosshairs of a killer. Together they must decide if they can trust Wilmington’s claims of redemption, or if he’s leading them straight into a double cross.

Pyramid of Secrets

Pyramid of Secrets

Tracy Higley

Previously released as City of the Dead.

An unpredictable Pharaoh. An unprecedented pyramid. An unconscionable murder. When all the gods seem to be failing him, Grand Vizier Hemiunu must seek answers among a mysterious Egyptian sect who claim to worship only the One True God.

Hemiunu, Pharaoh’s Grand Vizier, orders his life with justice, truth, and precision. In like manner he orders the unprecedented building project with which Pharaoh has entrusted him. But good order is about to be disrupted. When the Overseer of Constructions is found murdered in Pharaoh’s slaughterhouse, a murderous spiral begins to unfurl around the pyramid. As the court swells with treachery and the body count rises, Hemiunu finds himself caught between his architectural legacy and his instinct for justice.

Meanwhile, troubling facts emerge linking Pharaoh’s wife and the mysterious People of the One, a sect who “worship only one god, whom they say has no name that man knows, yet is the only god, the creator of everything.” When Hemiunu finds himself in the company of these strange people, his spiritual certainties begin to wither along with his professional dreams.

As his long relationship with Pharaoh strains under the weight of his task and the tug of his conscience, Hemiunu faces a disturbing choice: follow the evolving spiritual philosophies that guide his life, or honor the Pharaoh whose friendship and nepotism control his fate.

“Higley gives readers a dose of biblical history set in King Nebuchadnezzar’s palatial gardens . . . The author’s insights into a woman’s inner strength as she searches for the one true God will leave readers rejoicing.” —RT Book Reviews TOP PICK! (on Garden of Madness)
