Finding Work God’s Way by Bradley Paul. Free on 6/3/13
I wrote this book to help people find work in ways they may have never thought possible. I am a huge fan of Dave Ramsey a financial advice guru and good christian. I mean after all, you never know what one good job will do to someones life, and the people, families they support.

After we moved from California to Texas. It was not easy but with God on our side he made all things possible. “If God is for you who can be against you” And he can do the same for you! This book tells both how God, Church and good old fashion life experience got me through possibly one of the toughest times in my life and how I never gave up, due to putting God and my Church first in my life, a strong family, my Glorious Wife and my previous interviewing and job applying/searching skills. I wrote this book to give hope in tough times especially to those who recently joined the ranks of the unemployed or to those who have been out of work for some time.

Amazingly while writing this book I became unemployed again. I am now writing and trusting this book with more clarity than I ever thought possible. This book I hope will serve for you as it is for me, a reference and a tool to get back to work.

The Best of Jonathan’s Corner: An Anthology of Orthodox Christian Theology by C. J. S. Hayward. Free on 5/30/13
Foreword

By Sydney Nicoletta W. Freedman

‘The Best of Jonathan’s Corner: An Anthology of Orthodox Christian Theology’ is a book that provides not only a good introduction to the author’s work but also a dose of the clear thinking and spiritual wisdom prescribed for our times. The author lives to create treasure, and he has mined, refined, and gathered wisdom for our age. It is not new knowledge, but rather, it has been artfully distilled from the writings of Church Fathers and his own life, from study and experience.

The pieces in this book speak with clarity about spiritual topics and with depth about practical ones, addressing the intrigues and issues that we all face, explore, and question. Orthodox Christian readers will find insightful discussions of art and worship, such as ‘Lesser Icons,’ and lucid, applicable discussions of the spiritual life, such as ‘God the Spiritual Father.’ This Eastern Orthodox perspective may shed light on matters for readers from other traditions as well. Such is especially true for pieces on such timely issues as economic hardship (‘Money’ and ‘The Best Things in Life are Free’) and the discussion of religion and science, including ‘”Religion and Science” Is Not Just Intelligent Design vs. Evolution.’. Regarding this latter work, a Roman Catholic reader recently deemed it to be one of the ‘most intelligent and erudite’ things that he has ever read. The essays on silence, the place of technology, and nature are treasures among the discussions of such popular and important issues. For those concerned with Orthodox theology and where it stands in relation to other denominations, ‘An Open Letter to Catholics on Orthodoxy and Ecumenism’ is profitable reading.
Illuminating reflections on the Christian life, including ‘An Author’s Musing Memoirs’ and ‘Maximum Christ, Maximum Ambition, Maximum Repentance,’ crown the theological articles, stemming from Hayward’s experiences and vast knowledge of Orthodox theology. The homilies, articles, commentaries, and essays in this book are treasure enough, but the talented writer has also included numerous creative pieces.

The poetic and fictional works in this book offer the same spiritual knowledge for which our society thirsts but in the deeper and more elevated way that is inherent to their genres. Some of the poems, ‘Open,’ for example, are prayers, which readers may find to voice some of their own words and which fittingly glorify God and His saints. Other poetry, such as ‘How shall I Tell an Alchemist,’ pointedly deals with questions of spirituality and theology with the magnified acuity that only this particular art can achieve. Socratic dialogue (‘The Damned Backswing’) and other creative forms play their part as well, rounding out the book.

The work that stands out most among the creative pieces, perhaps among all of them, is that which opens the book, ‘The Angelic Letters.’ I have had the pleasure of reading nearly all of Hayward’s writings, and I was delighted that he undertook to write such a work. Readers who are familiar with C. S. Lewis’ ‘The Screwtape Letters’ will recognize at once that it is the very book which that author desired, but felt unable, to write in order to balance the demonic correspondence. It is a mark of Hayward’s skill, knowledge, and spiritual insight that he has successfully written something that such a theologian as Lewis did not wish to attempt, and according to a psychologist of his acquaintance, the average Harvard PhD has not ever met someone as talented as Hayward. He has of course accomplished this work with God’s help, but one must realize the spiritual struggle, mental effort, careful study, and deep prayer that has gone into every piece in this anthology.

Honoring A Child Born To Heaven by K.M. Logan. Free on 5/30/13
Every life no matter how fleeting is precious. “Honoring A Child Born To Heaven” is a book of hope and healing for Parents who have suffered through pregnancy loss of any kind, particularly miscarriage. It includes touching ways to honor a baby who was born to heaven rather than their mother’s arms. This book is written from a Christian perspective of hope by a Mother who has gone through multiple miscarriages herself. It doesn’t attempt to but a band-aid on grief but gives the reader permission to commemorate, celebrate and remember the life of their little one in whatever way they see fit.
For Love’s Sake: One Young Woman’s Trek with the World’s Poor and Your Open Door to a Life of Experiential Love by Jessica J. Davis. Free on 5/30/13
For Love’s Sake weaves the real-life stories of two young women—Jessica J. Davis and Mary the mother of Jesus—into a supernatural adventure. Both women took big leaps of faith to journey deeper into the heart of God.

Jessica leaves middle-class America the day after high school graduation to travel throughout Africa ministering to the poor. She discovers how the vibrant land and amazing people reveal the upside-down nature of God’s Kingdom. Mary was called to bridge Heaven and earth by bringing life to a new movement of God into the world around her. They both experience great joy and profound sorrow.

For Love’s Sake opens the camouflaged “back door” of missions—living in outrageous fellowship with God—onto roads packed with heavenly encounters, miracles, and the reality of suffering in war zones.

With captivating transparency, For Love’s Sake is a wide-open stare into one woman’s fascinating trek with the poor, a brutal attack and threat on her life, and her honest reflections of the good, the bad, and the ugly underside of a life laid down for love.

Impossibility is not a period at the end of faith’s sentence. Faith, in the life of the believer, is meant to be tested. Without adversities faith will never become strong and overcoming.

God has not planned crises, pain and disaster to enter our lives as a dead-end to faith’s venture. Many situations vaunt themselves as “impossible”, but when they are stripped from their “I” and “M” and become dependent on God, they become “God-possible”.

In this book:
• Live life victoriously as you learn to rely on God.
• Learn how to overcome all life’s obstacles.
• Watch depression and anxiety disappear.
• Understand why God is allowing you to experience mountains.

Each chapter of Bigger Than Impossible highlights a specific area of Lydia Chorpening’s difficult past, and contrasts it with Scriptures which make God bigger than the seemingly impossible. By utilizing the complete assurance of these Biblical concepts you will develop your trust in the God who is bigger than impossible.

In his first book, the best-selling God & Football: Faith and Fanaticism in the SEC, humorist Chad Gibbs explored his own struggles to balance faith in God with passion for pigskin. Now Gibbs is back asking how Christian fans can love their enemies, when we can’t even love rival fans.

From the cross-country culture war of Lakers vs. Celtics, to the cross-state hate-fest of Alabama vs. Auburn, Gibbs spent one year attending the most intense rivalry games in sports (Yankees vs. Red Sox, Duke vs. Carolina, and many more), observing the darker side of fan culture, and pondering the problems rivalry games present to the Christian fan.

The result… Love Thy Rival, an enlightening, laugh-a-minute look at what sports’ greatest rivalries teach us about one of Jesus’ most difficult commands: Love your enemies.

Faith Works by Joey Enejoh

Faith Works by Joey Enejoh This is the amazing story of a young couple who had all hopes and dreams for the very best in life and later encountered the sudden harshness of life in their marriage. In the midst of their problem, even though it was uneasy for them, they made an unusual choice that led to their desired miracle. A decision based on Faith in God.

The story of this couple demonstrates that faith works in the real world. But faith cannot be separated from works because faith without works is dead. We can therefore apply faith in our daily lives and get the desired response we want. Read on and discover for yourself!

If you are wondering if God really cares about you and the people that matter to you. I would like you to know that God truly loves you and always wants the best for you. God plans for you to excel always at whatever you do.

However, there is a way more pleasing to God to receive from Him. An unflinching faith in God that He is committed to doing what He says concerning you is what turns things around in your favor.
