IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS

Susette Williams

SCROOGE FALLS IN LOVE
Tate Stephens begrudgingly agrees to play Scrooge in the school Christmas play. Tate is irritated that Charity Fletcher, his nephew’s teacher, chose his handicapped nephew for the part of Tiny Tim. He thinks it’s cruel to typecast his nephew that way. Can the school play be a success, or will Tate become the Scrooge who spoils Christmas?

Charity is inspired by how precocious, outgoing, and sweet Matthias Reeves is in spite of his bone disease. His over-protective uncle, Tate, though, can be infuriating. Perhaps Tate will make a similar transformation as Scrooge in the play. If Matthias is lucky, his teacher and uncle might find true love with a happily ever after ending.

Dean Anderson has a successful career, women falling all over him, and a carefree lifestyle – until his ex starts spreading rumors. His agent thinks accepting guardianship of orphaned four-year-old twins is the perfect thing to make his fans fall in love with him all over again. Too bad their sister isn’t one of his fans, and has no intention of changing her mind.

The Broken Trail (Sweet River Redemption Book 1)

Christa MacDonald

Katherine Grant takes the job at Sweet River Christian Academy hoping a small town in the wilderness of Maine will be a vacation from her high-powered career and a break from the emotional toll of the secrets she has buried deep. With the school director on a power trip and evidence of shady dealings, there’s nothing relaxing about it. Maybe it would be easier if she wasn’t so distracted by Captain MacAlister, the local cop she can’t get along with, yet can’t get out of her head. She didn’t trek up to the middle of nowhere to lose her heart.

Mac doesn’t need the kind of trouble he believes Katherine will bring. He’s got enough to deal with from poachers to drug crime. Mac has rules to maintain his faith, like avoiding the pull of an attractive woman who doesn’t fit his life. But when he meets Katherine, he’s drawn in by her intelligence and strength, despite getting burned by her quick temper.

When near tragedy strikes, Katherine reveals her feelings, and Mac doesn’t hesitate to respond. If only their scars, both seen and unseen, didn’t threaten to tear them apart. Two wary hearts must soften and two steel wills bend if they have any hope of making it down the broken trail to love.

One Race One Blood

One Race One Blood

Charles Ware

It is a rarely discussed fact of history that the premise of Darwinian evolution has been deeply rooted in the worst racist ideology since its inception. This significant book gives a thorough account of the effects of evolution on the history of the United States, including slavery and the Civil rights movement, and goes beyond to show the global harvest of death and tragedy that still finds its roots in Darwin’s destructive writings.

The tragic legacy of Darwin’s controversial speculations on evolution has led to terrible consequences taken to the deadliest extremes. One Race One Blood reveals the origins of these horrors, as well as the truth revealed in Scripture that God created only one race.

You will discover:
• Nazi Germany used evolutionary concepts to justify the extermination of “unfit” people groups such as Jews, Gypsies, and Slavs
• The origins of people groups, the genetics of skin color, and the biblical truths on “interracial” marriage
• Eye-opening discussion on racism and its roots in the hearts and minds of millions still today.

Within these compelling pages, Dr. A. Charles Ware, president of Crossroads Bible College, and Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis examine the historical roots of racism that have permeated evolutionary thought, and the Bible’s response to this disturbing issue. This is a crucial and timely study that profoundly addresses the Christian worldview regarding “race” from a compassionate and uniquely compelling perspective.

shifting from a Christian worldview to a Jesus prism; and
moving from religious leaders to disciple leaders.

Jesus: Uncovering the Life, Teachings, and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary

Marcus J. Borg

From top Jesus expert Marcus Borg, a completely updated and revised version of his vision of Jesus—as charismatic healer, sage, and prophet, a man living in the power of the spirit and dedicated to radical social change.

Fully revised and updated, this is Borg’s major book on the historial Jesus. He shows how the Gospel portraits of Jesus, historically seen, make sense. Borg takes into account all the recent developments in historical Jesus scholarship, as well as new theories on who Jesus was and how the Gospels reflect that.

The original version of this book was published well before popular fascination with the historical Jesus. Now this new version takes advantage of all the research that has gone on since the 80s. The revisions establish it as Borg’s big but popular book on Jesus.

At the Crossroad (Sweet River Redemption Book 2)

Christa MacDonald

As friendship turns to love, can grace bridge two conflicted hearts?

Erin Sullivan has had to endure the rumor mill of Sweet River, Maine grinding through her family’s scandals for years. Being a single mom and the subject of small-town misinformation and judgement had taught her not to hope for good things. No matter how strong her feelings were for Pastor Dan Cooper, she planned to keep them buried for the sake of his reputation and the good of her own heart.

Dan Cooper had become pastor of the Calvary Church thinking it would be temporary, that his mother would recover from her stroke, and he’d be back in the mission field in a matter of months. Three years later he is struggling in a job he never wanted, waiting for direction from God, and questioning his calling.

When Erin sees that Dan is alone in his struggle, she reaches out to help, and he comes to rely on her quiet strength and kindness. Erin tells herself it’s only friendship, but it quickly becomes more. Now, she has to reckon with a man in the midst of a spiritual storm. As his turmoil takes its toll on them, it may be more than her heart can take. Dan is determined to find his way, but it may have to be without the woman he’s come to love.
