Anxiety is at an all time high, but there's a prescription for dealing with it. Max Lucado invites listeners into a study of Philippians 4:6-7, where the Apostle Paul admonishes the followers of Christ, "Do not be anxious about anything...." Philippians 4:6 encourages the believer to "be anxious for nothing". As Lucado states, the Apostle Paul seems to leave little leeway here. "Be anxious of nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero."

In this best-selling novel, Patrick D. Smith tells the story of three generations of the MacIveys, a Florida family who battle the hardships of the frontier to rise from a dirt-poor Cracker life to the wealth and standing of real estate tycoons. The story opens in 1858, when Tobias MacIvey arrives in the Florida wilderness to start a new life, and ends in 1968 with Solomon MacIvey, who realizes that the land has been exploited far beyond human need.

On the morning of June 14, 2017, at a practice field for the annual Congressional Baseball Game, a man opened fire on the Republican team, wounding five, including Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise nearly fatally. In heart-pounding fashion, Scalise's minute-by-minute account tells not just his own harrowing story of barely surviving this horrific attack but the stories of heroes who emerged in the seconds after the shooting began; in the minutes, hours, and days after he suffered a devastating gunshot wound, in order to save his life and the lives of his friends.

An anonymous young woman murdered in a run-down hotel, all identifying characteristics dissolved by acid. A father publicly beheaded in the blistering heat of a Saudi Arabian public square. A notorious Syrian biotech expert found eyeless in a Damascus junkyard. Smoldering human remains on a remote mountainside in Afghanistan. A flawless plot to commit an appalling crime against humanity.

First published in 1952, Witness came on the heals of America's trial of the century, in which Whittaker Chambers accused Alger Hiss, a full-standing member of the political establishment, of spying for the Soviet Union. In this penetrating philosophical memoir, Chambers recounts the famous case as well as his own experiences as a Communist agent in the United States, his later renunciation of communism, and his conversion to Christianity.

We always want more out of an autobiography; however bu its nature, the author reveals what he wants and protects what he feels he must. This book was an attempt to defend Whitaker Chamber's legacy, when his honesty was still under attack. Several media outlets still championed Alger Hiss and demonized Chambers, Nixon, and the Unamerican Activities Committee. Time and the fall of the Iron Curtain has proven Hiss's involvement in Soviet espionage. Yet scholars pn the left will deny or justify his actions. Liberal icons will find their statues still standing when other's dirty laundry will be used to pull them down. Even today, critical thinking amd healthy scepticism can prevent us from following a lie that becomes a cult.

When a mutilated body is found hanging in a seedy motel in Philadelphia, forensics specialist Liam Dwyer assumes the crime scene will be business as usual. Instead, the victim turns out to be a woman he’d had an affair with before breaking it off to save his marriage. But there’s a bigger problem: Liam has no memory of where he was or what he did on the night of the murder. Panicked, Liam turns to his brother, Sean, a homicide detective. Sean has his back, but incriminating evidence keeps piling up. From fingerprints to DNA, everything points to Liam....

A who done it without the salacious dialogue or graphic language so common in this genre. See it can be done, authors. In fact, it allows the story to precede with just the facts. I will not call it a moral tale or one told with a redeeming sense of justice, regret or love. Nor does it truly moralize. It is an entertaining listen. The narrator does not overdramatize or change tone to relect different characters. It is reminisent of old film noir movies.

Wrll here is a good story that does not require that you abondon reality nor have to take a shower upon completion. There is no tell-tale agenda philosophically, morally, or politically. How refreshing. I may have to give it a PG13 rating (mild and inferred cursing, violence, child abuse), but that is generally better than most contemporary novels

The downing of Extortion 17 spurred a number of conspiracy theories, such as the idea that the shootdown was revenge for bin Laden's death. In The Final Mission of Extortion 17, Ed Darack debunks this theory and others and uncovers the truth behind this mysterious tragedy. His account of the brave pilots, crew, and passengers of Extortion 17 and the events of that fateful day is interwoven into a rich, complex narrative that also discusses modern joint combat operations and the history of the Afghan war to that date.

A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want - money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman's past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn't know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist - an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.

Usually "Christian" Novels are schmaltzy fare. But Francine Rivers is not your usual Halmark style author. She can pen romances and tear jerkers, but she has the chops to handle scripture and delve into the cost of redemption. This tale deals with promiscuous millennials, graffiti and taggers, acts of grace and a lady of the same name. Where the True romance starts and how it can be rediscovered.
