Your Recipe for Marital Success

Having a successful marriage is not about finding the perfect person. It's not even about always getting along. It's about loving the imperfect person you married in an unselfish manner.

Just as a great meal is made from many ingredients, a great marriage is a combination of different traits. If men and women were the same, life would turn out pretty bland. In this witty and insightful book, Rick Johnson shows you how to go beyond merely tolerating your spouse's differences to using them to add spice and passion to your relationship.

Angels Are for Real: Inspiring, True Stories and Biblical Answers

Angels have been, and will continue to be, a vital part of God's Kingdom--from creation to Jesus' birth and ascension to the end of days. Throughout the ages they have been messengers, protectors, healers, comforters and more to the people of God. Sometimes their presence is as subtle as a whisper of wind, other times as visible as the sun.

In this accessible, comprehensive and encouraging guide, Judith MacNutt pulls back the curtain on these intriguing heavenly beings. She offers insight and many stories of miraculous encounters, revealing what the Bible says about

• what angels look like
• what they do
• why they are important in believers' lives
• the heavenly hierarchy
• what fallen angels are
• and more

When you begin to grasp the importance of angels to God--and your very own life--you will better understand God's power and His extraordinary love for you.

The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket 
by Edgar Allan Poe

 

The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket

 

  • ISBN-13: 9781451688009
  • Publisher: Atria Books
  • Publication date: 6/12/2012

This new edition of Poe's only completed novel represents a welcome option for instructors. The edition features a comprehensive critical introduction detailing the history of Pym scholarship and critical approaches, a detailed chronology of Poe's life, and three valuable appendices that reprint Poe's most important literary sources, a healthy selection of contemporary reviews, and responses by other writers such as Melville and James. The selection of sources and reviews will delight instructors eager to teach the novel in its nineteenth-century context."-Leland S. Person, University of Cincinnati"

 


The War of the Worlds
by H. G. Wells

 

The War of the Worlds

 

  • ISBN-13: 9781451687989
  • Publisher: Atria Books
  • Publication date: 6/12/2012

What is at first believed to be falling stars or harmless meteorites turns out to be cylindrical Martian ships filled with nightmarish, tentacled invaders and their robotic war machines. When curious Englanders come to inspect the massive containers imbedded in the still-smoking countryside, metallic appendages emerge from the pits to kill every living thing in their path with strange heat rays. Then as the surrounding townships slowly devolve into chaos, the Martians begin constructing giant tripod war machines to track down and kill -- or capture -- as many of the human "inferior animals" as possible. The nameless narrator, trapped in a house almost completely crushed by the impact of a starship, watches in horror as the seemingly unstoppable Martians build their mechanical armies, kill hundreds with poisonous gas -- and begin snacking on captured humans!

 

Wells has been called the father of modern science fiction for good reason. Landmark works like The Time Machine, The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Invisible Man, and The War of the Worlds are just as compelling and wildly entertaining today as they were more than a century ago. Fans and historians of the science fiction genre who have yet to read Wells's classic tale of Martian invasion should definitely add this title to their reading lists. Paul Goat Allen

All That I Need, or Live Like a Dog With Its Head Stuck Out the Car Window  

Publisher: Lulu.com

 

All That I Need, or Live Like a Dog With Its Head Stuck Out the Car Window offers up a heaping plate of gratitude. In the best memoir fashion that is also part travel journal, Ms Fritschi plucks the ripe fruits of happiness from her own experiences as examples for all of us to embrace. All That I Need takes the reader on a wondrous journey of sensual discoveries first made in childhood and imparts the wisdom of maintaining (or re-learning) the ability to be satiated with these small pleasures as we age and eventually face our own mortality. She successfully mixes the contents of Mary Poppins carpet bag with Tinkerbelle’s faery dust, the Boston Red Sox with ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, contemporary musical and literary references and learning to swim as an adult to shine a spot-light on the beauty and delights our lives are meant to be.

by Richard L. Mabry

 

 

  • ISBN-13: 9781426726224
  • Publisher: Abingdon Press
  • Publication date: 4/1/2011

When her comatose husband died in the ICU while on life support, the whispers about Dr. Allison Williams began. Another death during her training puts her under suspicion. When the pattern is repeated in the hospital where she is attempting to start over, the whispers turn into a shout: “mercy killing.” What is the dark secret that keeps Allison’s lips sealed when she should be defending herself?

Despite her move to a new city, the midnight phone calls that started after her husband’s death follow Allison. Who is the woman who sobs out, “I know what you did?” What does she mean by “You’ll pay?” And what can Allison do to prevent it?

Two physicians, widowers themselves, offer support, telling Allison they know what she is going through after the death of her husband. But do they? And is it safe to trust either of them with her secret?

 


Behind the Veils of Yemen: How an American Woman Risked Her Life, Family, and Faith to Bring Jesus to Muslim Women

Behind the Veils of Yemen: How an American Woman Risked Her Life, Family, and Faith to Bring Jesus to Muslim Women

  • Publisher: Baker Publishing Group
  • Publication date: 9/1/2011

Women began to arrive in the entry hall, peeling away their black outer coverings. I watched in amazement as shimmering bodies emerged from the black shrouds. One woman sparkled in a purple silk caftan, her arms gleaming with gold jewelry. I smiled to myself. If people only knew what was under those veils. I looked at their faces, artfully painted with makeup, not at all how they appeared in public: dark eyes in narrow black slits. They were like the beauties of Arab folklore. I was awed by the transformation.

With only prayer and a faith that always seemed too small, Audra Grace Shelby departed with her husband and children on a one-way flight to Yemen...deep into the heart of conservative Islam.

With honesty and passion, she shares her harrowing journey as a Christian woman thrust into a culture dangerously different from her own. From the friendships she forged, to her gnawing doubt and fear, to her offers of hope when her new friends' religion failed them, she gives us glimpses of a world most have never seen: behind the veils of real Muslim women--and how the grace of God touches lives in the midst of an Islamic stronghold.

Surrender the Wind

by Rita Gerlach

 

Surrender the Wind

 

  • ISBN-13: 9781426713774
  • Publisher: Abingdon Press
  • Publication date: 3/1/2010

Surrender the Wind is the story of Seth Braxton, a patriot of the American Revolution, who unexpectedly inherits his loyalist grandfather’s estate in England. Seth is torn between the land he fought for and the prospect of reuniting with his sister Caroline, who was a motherless child taken to England at the onset of the war.

 

With no intention of staying permanently, Seth arrives to find his sister grieving over the death of her young son. In the midst of such tragedy, Seth meets Juleah, the daughter of an eccentric landed gentleman. Her independent spirit and gentle soul steal Seth’s heart. After a brief courtship, they marry and she takes her place as the lady of Ten Width Manor, enraging the man who once sought her hand and schemed to make Ten Width his own.

 

From the Virginia wilderness to the dark halls of an isolated English estate, Seth and his beloved Juleah inherit more than an ancestral home. They uncover a sinister plot that leads to murder, abduction, and betrayal--an ominous threat to their new life, love, and faith.
