Play Your Way by Jenevieve Woods 

  Not long ago, near a pond covered with snow, lived a family of ducks named Peach, Duckie, and Mama. Peach was a princess in a red dress with white dots, and she always had a big bow on top of her head. Duckie loved baseball and always wore a cap with a big visor. Peach and Duckie were twins, but when Peach was born, she was very, very small. Her legs and wings didn’t grow strong like Duckie’s. Peach would hobble around as best as she could, but her legs and wings did not work as well as they should. “Hmm,” thought Mama. “I must think of a snow adventure, fast! The nearby pond ....”

The Event by Laurence Dunn

  What happened to my father (Stan) five decades after his death in 1966 is called “The Event”. To explain, Stan did go to heaven after his death, but broke all the rules and misbehaved so badly that God had no other choice but to send him back to Earth. He needed to be rehabilitated! Stan’s path to get back into heaven is to do major good deeds on Earth. He has one year to comply or go to hell.

  My big problem is that God sent him back to me. How does a 72-year-old son handle a 53-year-old father?

  “The Event” has everything… Humor, nostalgia, fiction, mystery and suspense ….

All By Design by Andy Harkleroad

  Women’s roles in a church setting have been a growing point of tension in some settings. This short read will hopefully dispel some of that tension as we see from Scripture what God intended for His church. We need to be really careful not to let the culture, whether in the church or out of the church, dictate our conclusions on the matter. The contents of this booklet are captured in the title, All By Design, as I endeavor to show the difference between pragmatism and what God intended. I also hope this book communicates a humble approach to the issue, knowing that we will not all agree 100% on everything.

All That Jesus Commanded by Andy Harkleroad

  In the Great Commission found in Matthew 28:19-20, we find the phrase, “Teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you.” Churches can be perfect in their evangelical efforts to reach the lost; but often, churches fail to follow up with the discipleship process. All That Jesus Commanded was written with the purpose of cutting through all of the opinions of man and concentrate on the true commands of Jesus. It is my prayer that this book will encourage people to live the Christian life under the authority of Jesus Christ and not confuse His commands with church dogma crafted by men.

All the World is Junior High by Andy Harkleroad

  SOCIAL VALIDATION is a major factor in our daily lives. Many bad decisions are made on a regular basis as we clamor for attention. People wreck their lives, families, and reputations as they try to fill a “God-sized hole” in their being.

  Only when one recognizes the need for and embraces the sufficiency of Christ in his or her life will they find freedom from this endless, empty pursuit. It is my hope that this book will first of all expose the reader to his true desire for social validation. Secondly, that the reader would develop a Christ-centered purpose for his life. And finally, give him insight as to the “why” others say and do the things they do.

Through the Righteousness of Faith by Mike Hohenstein

  Righteousness is to a Christian what a robe is to a king:
a covering that identifies its bearer as belonging to royalty.  But unlike a king’s robe, the Christian’s righteousness is not fashioned by any man. It cannot be earned by merit. It is a gift purchased by Jesus Christ so that He could bring us to God. The gift cannot be received through our own efforts, but only through the righteousness of faith. May the pages of this book lead you to that Righteousness.
