Featured Books Plus a GIVEAWAY: The Way of Hope by Dave and Beth Weikel

23138668The Way of Hope – Growing Close to God Through Loss

Passing through the valley of the shadow of loss can appear to be an unending gray, dry, barren journey from which you would never return. It seems impossible that spiritual life could even continue in such circumstances, let alone grow. Yet it is especially there, in your darkest hour, that God will bring you light and new life like you’ve never known before—if you will see that He is there with you.

Follow The Way of Hope with Beth and Dave Weikel as they lead you along your own dark paths toward the true light, found only in God’s Word. They themselves have passed the way of tragic loss several times and have found always that, through the pain and brokenness, God’s promises in Scripture become so much more meaningful.

Discover personally what it means to be blessed because you mourn— what it means to be comforted by God. He promises you there still can be hope, still new life.

The Turning by Davis Bunn & GIVEAWAY!






Hope is dead. That is the message that Trent Cooper hopes will take the younger generations by storm- while simultaneously launching him into a corporate career of power and wealth. Working for a media company, he hopes to use the seeming despair of the millennials to drive the latest fad by taking away any sense of hope they may have, and making a mockery of religion. Soon the phrase is seen everywhere- from advertisements, to trendies on street corners holding ‘hope is dead’ signs. A new culture of despondency has been born, and it seems there is no way to stop the evil that is rising. . .

A Walk Through the Dark by Eva Piper, with Cecil Murphey

Eva Piper’s life was an ordinary one, until the day that darkness fell. While teaching at school, she received a call that her husband had been in an accident. Anything more was unknown. But rather than being filled with fear, she is overcome by the peace of God, and hears a voice inside her say, This will be difficult, but it’s going to be okay. Don has two broken legs and an arm. She explains, ” I believe God whispered to me to give me the perfect peace of which the Bible speaks and to prepare me for what was ahead.”

What lay ahead were months of agony for her husband as he recovered from his injuries caused by a head-on collision with an 18-wheeler; and a deeply emotionally trying time for Eva as she remained faithfully by his bedside throughout the process, and assumed the responsibilities her husband had always taken care of. Yet, through it all, she finds peace in God as she learns to put her faith in Him in the darkest of times.

Review of 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper

As he is driving home from a minister’s conference, Baptist minister Don Piper collides with a semi-truck that crosses into his lane. He is pronounced dead at the scene. For the next 90 minutes, Piper experiences heaven where he is greeted by those who had influenced him spiritually. He hears beautiful music and feels true peace.

Back on earth, a passing minister who had also been at the conference is led to pray for Don even though he knows the man is dead. Piper miraculously comes back to life and the bliss of heaven is replaced by a long and painful recovery.
For years Piper kept his heavenly experience to himself. Finally, however, friends and family convinced him to share his remarkable story. Continue reading “Review of 90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper”
