THE BODY. being light in Darkness” by Charles Colson.

The Body by Coulson

 

“In this 1993 ECPA Book of the Year, Colson sounds a clarion call for the church to rise above traditional divisions and market-driven programs to be what God has called her to be-His people. In doing so, the Body of Christ can reclaim God’s holy vision for His church. Truly a modern-day classic.”

terror by night

Terror by Night by Terry Caffey and James Pence

a True story I couldn’t put down.

At 3:00 a.m. on March 1, 2008, Terry Caffey awoke to find his daughter’s boyfriend standing in his bedroom with a gun. An instant later the teen opened fire, killing Terry’s wife, his two sons, and wounding him 12 times, before setting the house ablaze. Terry fell into deep depression and planned to kill himself, but God intervened. Upon visiting his burned-out property, Terry noticed a scorched scrap of paper from one of his wife’s books leaning against a tree trunk. The page read: “[God,] I couldn’t understand why You would take my family and leave me behind to struggle along without them. And I guess I still don’t totally understand that part of it. But I do believe that You’re sovereign; You’re in control.” That page was like a direct message from God, and it turned Terry’s life around.

mere christianity

 

In the classic Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis, the most important writer of the 20th century, explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together. Bringing together Lewis’ legendary broadcast talks during World War Two from his three previous books The Case for ChristianityChristian Behavior, and Beyond PersonalityMere Christianityprovides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith.

 

 

 

 

 

the Harbinger

 

“Is it possible…

That there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America’s future?
That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy?
That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America?
That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come?”

 

 

 

Writer to writer

 

Veteran author Cecil (Cec) Murphey made a double commitment when he started writing professionally: (1) He would never stop learning and improving, and (2) He would do whatever he could to help other writers.

* How to get beyond the amateur look;
* Why writing articles is a good place to start;
* The importance of showing and telling;

 

 

 

 

Backfired

 

The faith that gave birth to tolerance is no longer tolerated! * Ten Commandments taken down, “Under God” removed from Pledge, Prayer prohibited, Nativity Scenes banned, Religious Art & Music censored, Salvation Army & Boy Scouts defunded, Christmas carols disallowed… * How did America go from Pilgrims seeking freedom to express their Christian beliefs to today’s discrimination against those very beliefs in the name of tolerance? “From its beginning, the new continent seemed destined to be the home of religious tolerance. Those who claimed the right of individual choice for themselves finally had to grant it to others.

 

Galileos revenge

 

A scathing indictment of the growing role of junk science in our courtrooms. Peter W. Huber shows how time and again lawyers have used—and the courts have accepted—spurious claims by so-called expert witnesses to win astronomical judgments that have bankrupted companies, driven doctors out of practice, and deprived us all of superior technologies and effective, life-saving therapies.

 

 

 

Story of reality

Biblical Christianity is more than just another private religious view. It’s more than just a personal relationship with God or a source of moral teaching.

Christianity is a picture of reality.

It explains why the world is the way it is. When the pieces of this puzzle are properly assembled, we see the big picture clearly. Christianity is a true story of how the world began, why the world is the way it is, what role humans play in the drama, and how all the plotlines of the story are resolved in the end.
