Emboldened by the prospect of leading his tiny congregation in a nationally-televised, first amendment debate that he considers to be a “fight for the heart and soul of America,” Pastor Wells determines not to let anything or anyone, including his wife and his rebellious sixteen-year old daughter, stand in his way. But when an old high school friend unexpectedly shows up in their small town and a past secret is revealed, Pastor Wells’ constitutional crusade collides with an even greater fight—the fight for the heart and soul of his marriage, his daughter, and, even his own life.

The Russian: Three Complete Novels (The Russian Trilogy)
A thrilling compilation of three complete novels in bestselling author Noel Hynd’s Russian Trilogy.

Conspiracy in Kiev
Working with the U.S. Treasury, federal agent Alexandra LaDuca travels to Ukraine to track a Russian-Ukrainian mobster named Yuri Fedrov during a visit by the American president. Personally and professionally, Alex’s life will be changed forever by the explosive events that transpire in the Ukrainian capital.

Midnight in Marid
U.S. Treasury agent Alexandra LaDuca returns from Conspiracy in Kiev to track down stolen artwork, a small carving called The Pietà of Malta. It seems to be a simple assignment, but nothing about this job is simple, as the mysteries and legends surrounding the relic become increasingly complex with claims of supernatural power.

Countdown in Cairo
Alexandra LaDuca is smart, tough, and cool under fire. But when she travels to Cairo to investigate a former mentor who was believed to be dead, Alex is caught in a bizarre game of double cross, and her life is more perilously on the line than ever.


The Call with Promise: How to Receive the Best from God
In daily life, people always call you with a purpose. Anytime someone calls you, either the person informs you of his or her reason for calling or you end up asking why the person called. This is similar to the call of God. He calls us from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light, and each and every one of us has something to accomplish for His glory. Some of us still don’t know the purpose of our calling, and perhaps we have given up our dreams and goals in life. When God called Abraham, however, He gave him some promises; and all of those promises came to pass. God has attached certain promises to your calling as well and it is time for you to discover what they are.


The Ultimate Wife: Discovering How Every Woman Can Be a Dream Wife
What makes a woman a dream wife? Is it her appearance, her Career, her wealth, her fame, her spiritual life, her Social life, and her talents? I do believe with all my heart that every woman can be a dream wife. Men and women who marry usually love each other deeply, but that love too often transforms into anger and frustration, which leads in turn to separation and divorce. In such cases, something in the relationship was amiss—some problem that ought to have been prevented or addressed in order to establish a happy home. If God leads you down the path of marriage, however, then you must approach the matter in all seriousness. Finding and choosing the person who will complete your life, and joining that person in holy matrimony, is no trifling affair; it requires preparation and direction. Entering into a marriage is like starting a lifelong journey. To successfully face challenges, reach your intended destinations, and enjoy the many other experiences that you will share along the way, you need spiritual, emotional, psychological, physical, and material preparation.


Into the Word
In this roll-your-sleeves-up look at Scripture, each of the studies begins with a short reflection tied to the present day, providing a springboard into the various passages presented from the Old and New Testaments. Then, in a refreshing departure from the typical bible studies in the marketplace, the author doesn’t explain what the passage means or offer support on what she feels God is trying to say from Scripture. Instead, Lotz asks dozens of questions in each study, prompting readers to personally dig into Scripture and discover God’s specific message for themselves.


Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek
Verbal aspect in the Greek language has been a topic of significant debate in recent scholarship. The majority of scholars now believe that an understanding of verbal aspect is even more important than verb tense (past, present, etc.). Until now, however, there have been no accessible textbooks, both in terms of level and price (most titles on the topic retail for more than $100). In this book, Constantine Campbell investigates the function of verbal aspect within the New Testament Greek narrative. He has done a marvelous job in this book of simplifying the concept without getting caught up using terms of linguistics that no one except those schooled in that field can understand. The book includes exercises, an answer key, glossary of key concepts, an appendix covering space and time, and an index to Scripture cited. Professors and students, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, will use this is as a supplemental text in both beginning and advanced Greek courses. Pastors that study the Greek text will also appreciate this resource as a supplement to their preaching and teaching.
