  • Faith Still Moves Mountains

    $28.99

    From FOX News anchor and author Harris Faulkner comes a collection of powerful, true-life stories of resilience, healing, rescue, and protection.

    We need reminders of God’s power now more than ever.

    We often think about prayer as a wish list, with God as Santa Claus. The reality is that the power of prayer reminds us not only how small we are, but also how big God is. Prayer is hope put into action. And prayer works.

    From the aftermath of the devastating earthquake in Haiti to the theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, believers testify to how God inspired hope even when all seemed lost.

    Two teenagers who were saved from treacherous seas by a vessel named Amen now give thanks for the rescue that changed their lives. A woman’s near-death experience with COVID-19 turned out to be the crisis freeing her from despair. Others speak to how prayer helped them navigate family trauma, overcome abuse, and cope with mental illness and depression. Historical accounts of miracles testify to God’s power throughout time, and Faulkner recounts the role of faith and prayer in her own life and the life of her father.

    Along with these stories of God’s presence, the book includes an exclusive packet of newly written prayers. Created to reflect the current times, this prayer booklet will provide a road map for putting the lessons of these stories into action.

    Faith Still Moves Mountains reminds us that God’s light always shines through the darkness. Through these testimonies, we learn prayer isn’t just a ritual, it’s a vital spiritual strategy in a world that wants us to give up the fight.

    $19.99

    These stories-like your favorite Christmas ornaments-come in all shapes and sizes. They unfold in a variety of settings, from ancient Bethlehem to rural England.

Such mysteries can never be solved, just as love can never be diagrammed. Christmas is best pondered, not with logic, but imagination.”

  • Thieves Of The Sky

    $12.99

    When I started thinking about my poetry book I decided to write about things that I love and enjoy so much. I feel for poems come out right and enjoyable the poet has to be genuine and true about her feelings and what to write about and word must come from the heart. Also the vocabulary and expressions used must reflect a mastery of the language to choose the most suitable words that will be great match perfect for each situation, that is a skill and a gift that God had blessed me with an I am thankful for that. I have also chosen my subjects and situations based on the simple things in life that people enjoy and find it close to their hearts because I believe that when it comes to poetry the simpler the better. I have also written about a range of topics to make it exciting and give the reader the experience and enjoy different situations and reflections, after all variety is the spice of life. Some of the topics that I picked for my reflections and poems were included animals, nature, cultures and values, and faraway places. I am a huge animal lover and you will feel that throughout this book, I spend a lot of my time looking at them, watching animals and wildlife shows, going to zoos and aquariums. The animal world that shares our planet, there is so much beauty and serenity in connection with nature and learn many lessons in struggle, hard work, and motherhood. However, not everything in the animal kingdom is rosy fairy tales of beautiful fur, colorful feathers, and fluffy cubs, there are also a lot of savagery, blood, and cruel fight for survival. I felt to covey that world as it is just like it takes place in nature in a very unique way that hasn’t been described before that that reader will find interesting and amusing. In “”Thieves of the Sky,”” “”Dracula of the Jungle,”” “”I smell Blood,”” “”Gentle Giants,”” and “”Racing the Wind”” I spoke of the beauty and of heartwarming sights and discipline of these animals, but at the same time I uncovered their schemes and manipulation in stalking their Prays and tearing them apart in cruel and bloody manner as a mean of survival and domination of the strong over the venerable. In a related topic, but also a matter of principle I wanted to make my voice heard to add that to the many calls and protests against the brutality and savagery oh bullfighting in Spain and other places. The torture and sedition that is inflicted on that poor creature is beyond comprehension. I wanted to portray that in an imaginativ

  • Whos Your Daddy

    $33.95

    The art of storytelling and writing, which is integral to the development of the Christian church, must be encouraged. This is important because Jesus often used stories to illustrate or make a point. A well-crafted, Bible-based story has the capacity to capture the imagination, inspire, comfort, and encourage.

    Harvey Cox, in The Seduction of the Spirit, is quoted as saying, ‘All human beings have an innate need to hear and tell stories and to have a story to live by …religion, whatever else it has done, has provided one of the main ways of meeting the abiding need.’

    Who’s Your Daddy? Bible-Based Stories for Modern Families: Season 1 is well-crafted and inspired and provides an opportunity for all to meet the abiding need to ‘hear and tell’ and to have a story to live by.

    The book is a delightful read for teens and families and can be usefully utilised in organisations such as churches and schools to supplement their existing teaching programmes.

    Season 1 begins with the author’s version of the Christmas story, followed by Vol. 1: Sons, which depicts scenes from the lives of young biblical characters from both the Old and New Testaments. The issues explored are varied – teen identity, self acceptance, mentorship, healing, forgiveness, and commitment.

    Vol. 2: Fathers reflects on some of the issues we all face at some point in our lives, such as self-conflict, the grieving process, self-sacrifice, and surrender to God’s divine will. The book’s climax is the Easter edition of the Who’s Your Daddy series which I can only describe as exceptional.

  • Walk With Me

    $12.99

    Perhaps you feel your testimony isn’t worth sharing. Think again. In a world filled with megachurch preachers, complicated theologies, and distortions of the good news of Jesus, what can a down-to-earth faith look like?

    “Daddy loved to fish. This particular afternoon found me with him at one of the ponds close to our camp house out in the Walker community just off the Transport Cemetery Road. I was at an age where playing on the sandy bank with a stick was every bit as entertaining as fishing.

    Making a little too much noise resulted in a plea to be quiet, but he still kept fishing. I went on playing. The nearby minnows would dart in the shallows right along with dad’s patience when I would stamp my feet. He asked me to stop, and he kept on fishing.

    Maybe I took it as a challenge. I’m not sure now what was going through my head, but in a glaring display of the restlessness of a child, I had to slap my foot on that bank one more time. As he started toward me I knew I’d gone too far.

    I’d made a number of mistakes that afternoon, what was one more? I ran. Up the hill and away from certain doom I went. Not even halfway up the hill, terror took over when I realized he was right behind me. Like a scene from an educational program where a lion is chasing a baby deer, you knew it was not going to end well, and the narrator was going to be talking about how it was nature’s way. Man, did I feel sorry for that deer…”

    Walk With Me is a collection of stories and observations meant to encourage faith, examine your hope, and even laugh.

    Grace on Wings, the only charity air ambulance in the United States, was founded in 2006 when a group of volunteers responded to God’s call on their lives. Since then, the ministry has served 271 patients in crisis from a medical emergency. This book shares their stories and some of the amazing patient transport stories. On a deeper level, it challenges all readers to hear and answer God’s call to love and serve others. “I was most captivated by the stories of the patients helped by the Grace on Wings ministry. Countless times while reading the book, I was reminded of the friends who helped the paralytic go through the roof of a house to be healed by Jesus. Dr. Milstead and his team are the friends in that story.” Rev. Dan McNerney, Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship “I remember well the day Hal presented to me and our senior lender. The deep passion oozed out of him. The love of Jesus and commitment to this ministry was compelling.” Karen Miller, President and CEO, The Farmers Bank “Answering the Call tells the wonderful story of friends who heard God’s call to go beyond the usual, beyond the normal way of life, into an exciting and unique way of serving the Lord and helping people who desperately need help. Jim Milstead shares the challenges, the responses, and the blessings of God as the Grace on Wings team steps forward in faith to do the seemingly impossible. This book is a great read, as it turns our personal thoughts into how we too can answer the call and do the impossible with God’s leading.” Donna Thomas, Christian Vision Ministries For more information or to make a flight request, call 1.877.75.GRACE, find Grace on Wings on Facebook, or visit the ministry website at www.graceonwings.org.

  • Devil And Pierre Gernet

    $28.99

    David Bentley Hart – author of The Beauty of the Infinite and The Doors of the Sea – turns his theological imagination to narrative fiction in this collection of four short stories and one novella. Anticipating questions about his shift in genre, Hart writes that “God is no more likely (and a good deal less likely) to be found in theology than in poetry and fiction.” Far from simple allegory, however, these stories beguile and entrance the reader because of Hart’s engrossing, opulent writing style and the deep theological and philosophical questions he raises. Occasionally flabbergasting, often bedazzling, sometimes heartbreaking, and ultimately mesmerizing, these stories are wide ranging in context and scope but united by a common thread of haunting religious and philosophical questions about this life and the next. This powerful collection will engage both the mind and the heart.

  • Use Me Lord

    $32.99

    ‘Use Me, Lord’ is a collection of short, easy- to- read, true stories from the author’s life. These amazing stories reveal the Power of God in everyday life. When one permits God to use them for His Glory, extraordinary events unfold. This book was written to glorify God, lead others to Christ and allow everyone to realize they can be used of God through simple surrender to His will.

    Stories include God’s direction for the author to move with her husband and children from the only home they had ever known to a location far away from family, friends, and church. These stories will encourage and strengthen you to wait on the Lord to provide for your needs. Realizing God’s visible answers to prayer will draw you closer to Him. The author’s passion for the lost and God’s call on her life to win souls for the Kingdom of God is evident.

    Having delayed God’s direction to write this book because she was “too busy”, the author lost her job. After allowing her a few days of self-pity and crying He instructed, “Now write the book.” Her willingness to lose it all to say “Yes” to God is testimony of her faith. ‘Use Me, Lord’ will bring you to tears and make you laugh while allowing you to reflect on what you are doing for the glory of God.

    Moving the Rock portrays several generations of African American women whose families migrated from the South to the Pacific Northwest in the 1940s and 1950s. As members of a small storefront church in central Seattle, these women-grandmothers, mothers, daughters-lean on their faith and church to face the challenges of poverty, racism, ignorance, and health. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, it is painfully obvious that many of us know little about what it is like to be poor and Black in the United States. These powerful, profound stories bring this group of women and their problems (and joys) vividly and movingly to life.

  • Guitar And A Pen

    $36.00

A GUITAR AND A PEN presents, for the first time, the literary work of some of the best storytellers in the world: the songwriters who cut and polish tales down to sparkling three-minute gems. A blend of humor and poignancy, these tales range from Kris Kristofferson’s charming tale of how an explicit natural rock formation causes chaos in a small farming town, to the domestic drama of a Kentucky family with six daughters, to Charlie Daniels’ character-driven fable of money and unhappiness, to Gary Nicholson’s riveting tale of an albino African American singer/songwriter who inspired him to be a musician.

  • Tales And Prayers For New Life In Christ

    $15.95

    What is a story? Is it simple communication, a way to relay information about an event? Is there more to a story than that? In fact, stories are powerful. They not only inspire our imagination, but they also serve as a connection with our past, preserving core events in our history. Stories can create a feeling of community, bonding people together in a common history. They reveal truths to us that would otherwise remain hidden. Sometimes we cannot grasp a notion until it is revealed in a story. From the story of our birth to our newspaper obituary, stories are the fabric of our lives.

    It is no wonder that Jesus taught us using parables, defined in the introduction as “simple translations of the unfathomable word of God into human language.” Like other stories in our lives, Jesus’ parables offer humanity hope and enlightenment. Consequently, stories have pervaded our worship of God, the master storyteller. Through sermons, prayers, and hymns, the grand tale of God’s relationship with humanity is retold every Sunday.

    It is in this spirit that Tales and Prayers for New Life in Christ is given. Each story, complete with a synopsis, a link to the liturgical calendar, and a corresponding scripture, offers us a glimpse into the mystery of life and faith. These stories, including “Angie,” “Bullpen Mud,” and “A Vision of Peace,” can be used in sermons, small group discussions, or even as a complement to personal prayer and reflection. It is suitable for congregations, families, friends, and individuals. Let each tale lay down the foundation on which you create a story of your own.

  • Fire And The Flame

This new book has some quirky twists that I am sure you will enjoy; take a look at the “Fanning the Flames” pages randomly placed between the stories. You will have to decide whether a particular story you are reading is the truth or fiction. I have made it easy for you. Before you get to the end of the “Fired Up” tales, you will have formed your own conclusions; much of the time, you may be right. One important thing I want to leave with you, along with my hope that you will delight in these special stories, is that my love of writing will manifest itself as you read this new collection of “some truth-some fiction” tales.

  • Shining Moments : Visions Of The Holy In Ordinary Lives

    $19.95

    The Bible is filled with stories of shining moments — Moses’ face shone as he came down from the mountain with the ten commandments; Jesus’ face changed and his clothes became dazzling white in a transfiguration witnessed by the disciples; Paul was blinded by a light and heard the voice of Christ on the road to Damascus — and many modern Christians have had equally life-changing experiences of the Lord’s power and presence.

    In this third volume of the acclaimed Visions series, 60 contributors share their authentic, intensely personal accounts of holy experiences. Rosmarie Trapp of the Sound of Music family tells of a moment of assurance when “the Lord visited me in a bright, golden light” whose “golden glow brought peace to my soul.” Ralph Milton, author of the historical novel Julian’s Cell, describes a visitation by his late sister: “We were singing together as we often did as children … I don’t recall ever having a memory or dream as clear and powerful as that one, and it left me with a sense of joy and peace.” Karen Steinke recounts the warmth she felt at the moment of her baptism: “I looked up to see the form of Jesus with an overpowering light surrounding him …”

    Whether they relate transforming moments like visions, healings, or visitations by angels, joyous moments like being in the presence of a loved one who has died, or just the simple sense of God’s presence while singing in church or sitting in a sunny meadow on a warm spring day, the vignettes in Shining Moments are a testament to the indescribable comfort and peace of an encounter with the divine. And because each story also illustrates a scripture passage, Shining Moments is a valuable preaching resource and an excellent catalyst for small group discussion. But even more, this book provides inspiring and heart-warming reading for personal devotion and spiritual growth.

  • 30 Days Of Love

    How can you love when you might not know the true meaning? This simple four-letter word is easily defined without context. However, once context is added, it changes.

But be forewarned- because God inspired this book, it will invoke thought and divine revelation, so read it at a slow pace. This book guarantees moments of reflection and insight. Also, because of its 30 different and independent accounts of love through poetry and short stories, it is an easy read and the perfect travel book. Just remember life and love are choice driven, so choose 30 Days of Love, and you will not be disappointed.
