Love in Disguise
by Penny Zeller


Who knew concealing one’s true identity could be so disastrous?

Who knew asserting one’s independence would cause such embarrassment? If only Almira “Emilie” Crawford Wheeler hadn’t insisted upon carrying her own stack of parcels, she wouldn’t have landed in an unladylike heap on the boardwalk. And what about the half-truth she told the handsome stranger who came to her aid? The stranger she never expected to see again?

Thad Alexander Evanson should have been paying closer attention to the boardwalk, rather than the newfangled automobile motoring down the street. Had he been more astute, a collision with the beautiful parcel-laden stranger might never have happened…

THE DISCIPLE: What It Means to Follow Jesus
by Andy Ripley


A biblical view of what it means to be a true follower of Jesus Christ. The Lord Himself made many powerful and poignant statements about those who would dare to call themselves His disciples. There are great commitments and bold sacrifices to make. His disciples must be made of stern and durable stuff. They must set their sights and their hopes on eternity rather than on the things that can be found while living this short life.

There is no other call known to man that demands more courage, more stamina, or more fortitude than the call to be a disciple of the Lord.

“An excellent & well-rounded book on discipleship, backed up with Scriptures & impacting Theology on what it is to follow Christ.” by Amazon Customer

Hearing the Message of Ecclesiastes
by Christopher J. H. Wright


There is no easy answer to the meaning of life–even when you believe in God.

The book of Ecclesiastes seeks to answer the question: “What do people gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun?” The book’s central character is Qoheleth, who wants to understand the meaning of life as far as he possibly can with the tools of his own empirical observation and reason. He struggles to reconcile the beautiful world that we love and enjoy with the baffling world of injustice, suffering, and death. Qoheleth circles around an abyss of nihilism and pessimism. He lives with unanswered questions. Yet he remains a believer.

The Beautiful Fight
by Gary Thomas


In a groundbreaking book that rethinks spiritual formation, Gary Thomas argues that the contemporary church is in danger of accepting Christianity as a historical reality but not as a present power. Is the grace that pardons powerful enough to transform? Answering with a resounding yes, Thomas presents a compelling picture of what it means to be a “God oasis” in a God-forgetting world.“The first chapter alone is worth reading many times. This is beauty and struggle. This is the death that leads to life.

Thomas rallies you to the Beautiful Fight—the struggle to fully express the wonder and life-changing power of Christ in this world through every aspect of who you are.
