Explanation of the Book:

“I should be dead. Buried in an unmarked grave in Romania. Obviously, I am not. God had other plans.” At just under five feet tall, Virginia Prodan was no match for the towering 6' 10" gun-wielding assassin the Romanian government sent to her office to take her life. It was not the first time her life had been threatened—nor would it be the last. As a young attorney under Nicolae Ceausescu’s brutal communist regime, Virginia had spent her entire life searching for the truth. When she finally found it in the pages of the most forbidden book in all of Romania, Virginia accepted the divine call to defend fellow followers of Christ against unjust persecution in an otherwise ungodly land. For this act of treason, she was kidnapped, beaten, tortured, placed under house arrest, and came within seconds of being executed under the orders of Ceausescu himself. How Virginia not only managed to elude her enemies time and again, but how she also helped expose the appalling secret that would ultimately lead to the demise of Ceausescu’s evil empire is one of the most extraordinary stories ever told. A must-read for all generations, Saving My Assassin is the unforgettable account of one woman’s search for truth, her defiance in the face of evil, and a surprise encounter that proves without a shadow of a doubt that nothing is impossible with God.

Jennifer L. Lane's Faith Adventures shows us in her vulnerability before both God and her readers that: 'Our God isn't shallow. Our God doesn't call us shallow, and He knows that sometimes with a phone call, a run stoplight, a routine blood test, or a sonogram, we can be thrown into the deep end.' Through both her experiences and Scriptures, Jennifer reassures us that: 'He is there in the deep end with us.' She shows us that it is precisely in the moments we choose to face our humanity - our anxiety, hurt and fear - leaning into the arms of our mighty God to hold, soothe and protect us, that our greatest faith adventures are birthed.

Explanation of the Book:

Walker Roberts is a lost man. One fateful night, his entire life was turned upside down. First, he was turned down by the young man he'd been gathering up the nerve to ask out for two years, and then he lost both his parents. Not only that, he discovers his life is not what he thought it was. At thirty-four, how could he not know the truth about his family? Unable to cope, he walks away from the life he'd built for himself, only to discover his ties to Sulfur Springs might be stronger than he realized. Tristan Stone is the youngest and most junior man on the Sulfur Springs Fire Department, making him the probie. His crew is amazing, and he's watched one of his closest friends from high school fall in love with his Lieutenant. So why does he feel like he's missing something? He'd thought he'd done well with hiding his attraction to the very straight Captain Walker Roberts, but has he? Without warning, Captain Roberts disappears in the middle of the night and Tristan realizes just how much he misses the older man once he's gone. Is he coming back? Tragedy strikes in Sulfur Springs and one of their own is caught in the chaos. Will Walker return in time to save the young man he's silently watched for so long? Saving My Sanity is the third book in the Sulfur Springs series. This is a Men of Crooked Bend spin off, but it isn't a requirement that you read that series to enjoy this one. Familiar faces will be seen, but this series takes you off of the ranch and into the lives of those in Sulfur Springs. While each book will focus on a different couple, you should read them in order. Each book contains sexually explicit material between two men and is intended for adults over 18.

Explanation of the Book:

Once I realized that each moment in real life is more dramatic than any novel or screenplay ever written, I finally realized that reality was worth engaging. So often we wonder if anyone notices the lives we lead, but I believe God travels great distances to gather angels who long to see our stories unfold. He is like a director or writer who wants to show off His cast and characters.God, scripture, and truth stand firm, yet our stories and theology influence one another. What do you believe about God, Christ, and our identity as Christians? What are your thoughts on communion, worship, baptism, and heaven? What does God say about our struggle with Him and the emotions we carry inside us? What is the role of the church and the need we have for outside support? And finally, what are the true definitions of repentance and sanctification within the context of a grace-based theology? In your hands, you hold the intersection of my story and my theology. You hold my "Storiology". May it point you to God, igniting a desire to find Him in the middle of your own dramatic, valuable story. Even angels long to look into these things. - 1 Peter 1:12Endorsements:* Bob Blincoe, Ph.D. U.S. Director of Frontiers* Annette Schuster, MA. Director of Kids Need to Know * Bob Krepps.

When a young peasant girl is injured while hunting, she meets a strange, magical man who is a member of a despised race - Mujar. Truemen scorn the shape-shifting unmen for their odd, humble ways, and envy their power over the elements. Mujar do not use their powers for good or evil, they simply exist, immortal and apparently purposeless. Now a scourge is sweeping the land, armies of mounted warriors who cannot be defeated are wiping out Truemankind without mercy. They are known as the Black Riders, but no one knows where they come from or why they seem bent on exterminating every man, woman and child. Talsy traps the Mujar with gold, which has an odd effect on them, to make him help her, but her father intends to throw him in a Pit, from which he will be unable to escape. Talsy does not believe the Mujar deserves such a fate, so she frees him and begs him to take her with him on his journey. He agrees, and they set off across Shamarese, continuing his quest to find an old hermit's lost son. There is far more at stake than Talsy realises, however, and she has innocently stumbled upon the last free Mujar, who has the power to decide the fate of her race.

Explanation of the Book:

Just as Jesus shows us the character of God, diving deeper into the events surrounding his birth gives us a better understanding of that character. Christmas is so much more than the holiday we've turned it into. It's the birth of a promise-God's promise to redeem humankind to himself. Sending Jesus was always God's plan, and there is something for us to learn in every detail surrounding his birth. Christmas Speaks is a simple yet perceptive devotional that's broken down into easily understood segments that weave together scripture and insight, giving the reader a deeper understanding of the vast love God has for us and how we should respond to that love. Each chapter examines a different aspect of the Christmas narrative. As we come to better know the people central to this story, we can begin to apply aspects of their character to our own lives for a more meaningful relationship with God. By coming to a deeper understanding of scripture, we can see how God speaks to the world-if we have ears to listen. Reflect on the words within these pages, and receive what the Holy Spirit has for you.

Explanation of the Book:

*Now with links to video content online! It's been called "the most misunderstood book in history." Wars have been fought in its name, scandals have been precipitated by it, politics shaped and reshaped at its word. Theologians have both defended and reviled it. Skeptics have done the same. If you are a typical member of the human race, you have often been perplexed by all the "fuss" surrounding the Bible. The question remains, "What does it really say?" Here is a book that explains the greatest of Bible themes clearly and logically. Rather than focusing on one part-and missing the whole-the author chronologically binds together the entire text into one great universal drama, looking at events from the perspective of those who experienced history in the making. The results are sometimes comical, sometimes frightening-but always true to the intent of the text. When you are done reading it, you may find yourself believing "the Book" like you never have before. Or you may decide not to. The author's objective approach leaves that decision up to you. "Even though I had attended church for over 30 years, the Bible never made sense to me. It was just a bunch of disjointed stories. Now the Bible all fits together in a clear, logical manner. It really is incredible." John R. Cross writes from knowledge gained in a life-long study of the Bible. He has extensive experience travelling and living abroad. John and his family are from Canada.

Throughout the visit he sensed the evil re-emerging and, sure enough, after he left, the agent was nowhere to be found. When the police interrogated Mister Jones, it was obvious that he knew more than he was telling. What kind of evil was inhabiting the house and what part was Mister Jones playing in its plan?
