  • The Red Circle: My Life in the Navy SEAL Sniper Corps and How I Trained America's Deadliest Marksmen

Brandon Webb's experiences in the world's most elite sniper corps are the stuff of legend. From his grueling years of training in Naval Special Operations to his combat tours in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan, The Red Circle provides a rare and riveting look at the inner workings of the U.S. military through the eyes of a covert operations specialist. Yet it is Webb's distinguished second career as a lead instructor for the shadowy "sniper cell" that makes his story so compelling.

Written in a warm, personal style, Weber presents the characteristics of tender warriors - including learning to speak the language of women, watching out for what lies ahead, and keeping commitments - in an upfront, straightforward style that challenges readers to realize God's plan for men.

A soul-searching reflection on spirituality, A. W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God has been regarded as a classic Christian work since its publication in 1948. Tozer, a beloved, self-taught pastor, implores the reader to let go of material comforts to best cultivate a deeper spiritual life focused on the teachings of Christ. Tozer and his wife were firm practitioners of what he preached; the couple never owned a car and despite the success he found as a Christian writer, never profited greatly, as he donated much of his royalties to those in need.

Come with us to an Enchanted Place, a forest where Winnie-the-Pooh lived with Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Little Roo. The stories are about Christopher Robin and these good companions having wonderful times getting in and out of trouble. It is all very exciting and, really, quite thrilling no matter how young or old you may be. It is painful to try and imagine what the world would be like without them.
