Tranquility Initiative *Giveaway* 2 Winners

Tranquility Initiative by Joan Meijer
About The Book: Prologue: Wars were the inevitable result of the destabilization of the Middle East. They were small wars as wars go; bloody, destructive, battles waged between ethnic groups in the wake of the American invasion of Iraq and its subsequent defeat at the hands of the insurgents. Even with the emergence of dictators, who kept their mutual hatreds and suspicions in check for a time, the differences between ethnic groups and religious factions could not be held in check forever. Now those differences emerged with new vigor. The wars that were the creation of religious leaders hoping for bigger power bases, focused the people's attention on the grievances of their divisive past at the expense of any hope for a prosperous future. Brushfire after brushfire flared up throughout even relatively stable Middle Eastern nations. Before long, they had traveled up into the Muslim areas of the former Soviet Union. They spread in all directions, un…

Mr. Jefferson conducts himself in a gracious manner, though he has been known to lose his temper while playing board games. Mr. Jefferson, resting his chin in his hand, stared down at the board while he considered his next move. Across the table, Wayne waited patiently, organizing his game pieces into neat little rows in front of him. Mr. Jefferson pondered. Wayne smiled. Mr. Jefferson suspected that he was trying to psych him out. "Not this time my friend… Not… This… Tim…

No Paved Road To Freedom *Giveaway*

No Paved Road To Freedom by Sharon Rushton
About The Book: No Paved Road to Freedom is a gripping and emotional story that humanizes the impact of communist occupation in Romania after World War II. It is relevant, it inspires, and it reminds us that freedom is precious. Based on a true story, it documents the extraordinary courage of Cornel Dolana and his family as they pay an incredible price for resisting communism. Cornel makes up his mind to escape the oppression and uses his ingenuity to put his plan in place. His fortitude keeps him moving toward his goal, despite enduring enormous setbacks, brutality, and extreme outdoor elements that few humans could survive. For several decades stories like Cornel’s could not be told for fear of persecution. From hundreds of hours of interviews over several years, author Sharon Rushton incorporated the highlights as well as the many details of Cornel’s experiences. She uses dialogue to bring the story to life. Rushton said, “His story is so i…

Common English Bible Tour - Advent

What is special about the Common English Bible? It’s easier to read and understand. For many, reading the Bible and then truly grasping what it means can be a challenge. Yet the Bible is meant for everyone. The Common English Bible is a new translation of the Bible in a language that readers naturally speak and communicate - a common language.  To keep scripture relevant, and integrated into worship. Cultural and religious settings have changed dramatically. Changes in worship impact the words we use in our churches. And language is changing even faster because of the digital revolution. Combined with huge cultural shifts underway, these changes are so enormous that a completely new translation of the Bible is required.
This week is the beginning of Advent (November 27th to December 24th). The theme of readings and teachings during Advent is often to prepare for the Second Coming while commemorating the First Coming of Christ at Christmas. With the view of directing the thoug…
