Award-Winning Regency Romance from Bestselling Author Julie Klassen

Emma Smallwood, determined to help her widowed father regain his spirits when his academy fails, agrees to travel with him to the distant Cornwall coast, to the cliff-top manor of a baronet and his four sons. But after they arrive and begin teaching the younger boys, mysterious things begin to happen and danger mounts. Who does Emma hear playing the pianoforte, only to find the music room empty? Who sneaks into her room at night? Who rips a page from her journal, only to return it with a chilling illustration?

The baronet’s older sons, Phillip and Henry, wrestle with problems–and secrets–of their own. They both remember Emma Smallwood from their days at her father’s academy. She had been an awkward, studious girl. But now one of them finds himself unexpectedly drawn to her.

When the suspicious acts escalate, can the clever tutor’s daughter figure out which brother to blame…and which brother to trust with her heart?

The Mason Jar by James Russell Lingerfelt. $3.95 on 8/29/13
What if your old college roommate called, raving about a book someone sent her, calling it the most beautiful book she’s ever read? “But,” she said, “it’s about you.” The author is your college ex.

In The Mason Jar, Clayton Fincannon is a Tennessee farm boy raised at the feet of his grandfather. He and his grandfather leave letters for each other in a Mason jar on his grandfather’s desk; letters of counsel and affirmation. When Clayton attends college in Southern California, he meets and falls in love with a dark, debutante, named Savannah. However, when an unmentioned past resurrects in her life and she vanishes, Clayton is left with unanswered questions.

Clayton goes on to serve as a missionary in Africa, while he and his grandfather continue their tradition of writing letters. When Clayton returns home five years later to bury his grandfather, he searches for answers pertaining to Savannah’s disappearance. Little does Clayton know, the answers await him in the missing Mason jar.

A story about a girl who vanished, a former love who wrote a book about her, and a reunion they never imagined.

Written for all audiences, The Mason Jar brings hope to people who have experienced disappointment in life due to separation from loved ones. Written in the fresh, romantic tones of Nicholas Sparks, The Mason Jar interweaves the imagery of Thoreau with the adventures and climatic family struggles common to Dances with Wolves, A River Runs Through It, and Legends of the Fall.

The Messiah Matrix by Kenneth John Atchity. Free on 8/29/13
First Jesuit Pope predicted in THE MESSIAH MATRIX!

To what lengths would the Vatican go to suppress the secret origins of its power? Current papal politics has made this thriller eerily prophetic! The Messiah Matrix is a myth-shattering novel whose protagonists delve into the secrets of the past—and expose the fundamentalists who hide them still.

A renowned scholar-monsignor is killed in Rome while a Roman coin is recovered from a wreck off the coast of ancient Judea. It’s up to his young American protégé–a Jesuit priest–and a vivacious, brilliant archaeologist to connect these seemingly disparate events and unravel the tapestry that conceals in plain view the greatest mystery in the ecclesiastical world. Together they pursue their passion for truth—while fighting to control their passion for each other. What they uncover is an ancient Roman imperial stratagem so controversial the Curia fears it could undermine the very foundations of the Roman Catholic faith–much like the secrets emerging from the Vatican in today’s news.

From the ancient port of Caesarea to Rome’s legendary catacombs and the sacred caves of Cumae, this contemporary novel follows their exhilarating quest to uncover the truth about the historical existence of the real “Christian Savior.”

Classical scholar and Yale Ph.D. Dr. Kenneth John Atchity is the only author alive today capable of creating this literary and historically-based spellbinder.

For more information on The Messiah Matrix, including location maps, blog and more please visit:

Jasius? Who or what is it? All Google has to offer is a two-tailed butterfly or the ring finger. Say it again. Jasius. It has the sound of something strange, yet strangely familiar. Something or someone we all know, yet infinitely beyond our comprehension. Kenneth Atchity’s The Messiah Matrix explores the mystery in a fast-paced, light-hearted novel that is at the same time profoundly disturbing. The story goes forward at three levels. At the top, a rousing twenty-first century adventure that moves from the wrecks littering the floor of the Mediterranean to the corridors of the Vatican. Below that, a carbon-dated epigraphic revisionist history of the first centuries BCE and CE. And, at the deepest level, a sympathetic, fair-minded rational re-examination of “the greatest story ever told.” You may applaud, dispute, chortle, weep, but you will think about this book long after the final page.-Benedict and Nancy Freedman, authors Mrs. Mike, Sappho: The Tenth Muse, The Immortals

In a thriller that rivals anything Dan Brown ever wrote, The Messiah Matrix threatens to take all your beliefs and toss them into the wind. A priest is murdered in Rome. His assassin is also shot and killed while with another priest. A message was delivered. An artifact is found on the floor of the sea. A Jesuit questions his faith and the history of his Church. An archaeologist uncovers the find of a lifetime and loses it.

A connection between Christ and Augustus Caesar? The wise men following a star in 17 BC? Curiouser and curiouser! Although you know what they say about curiosity. The Monsignor searching for the ashes of Christ–which he was killed before explaining. Does the Holy See condone murder? Damn Skippy it does!

This book is amazing! The two main characters of Ryan and Emily are the perfect pair of detectives. Will they be more? You’ll have to read the book! Emily’s coin is vital to the history of Christianity in the world, but will they get it back? On the coin, Augustus was wearing a crown with twelve spikes. What’s up with that?

In this tale we have good guys, very bad guys, the Holy Mother Church, good priests and very, very bad priests and one red-headed archaeology professor who, along with one questioning Jesuit and some of his brothers, may be able to solve the conundrum that is The Messiah Matrix.

The Hole in Our Holiness by Kevin DeYoung. $2.99 on 8/29/13
The “hole in our holiness” is that evangelicals don’t look particularly holy, and, despite the flood of gospel-centered discussions, there seems to be a greater focus on personal depravity than on the pursuit of holiness. Looking to right the balances, Kevin DeYoung presents a popular-level treatment of sanctification and union with Christ, helping readers to see what matters most—being like Jesus. He shows how one can be like Christ in being joined to Christ. The market is ready for DeYoung’s timely book, ready to avoid legalism and ambivalence, and they are ready for someone to articulate the inextricable relationship between grace and holiness.
Torn to Heal by Mike Leake. $0.99 on 8/29/13
God is radically dedicated to our ongoing growth in spiritual maturity and holiness. This is both glorious and terrifying. It is glorious because the Lord of heaven and earth is for us. But it is terrifying because we are idolaters. This means that when God brings greater redemption into our lives he also brings a death sentence to our fallen desires. In love, God will do whatever it takes – even tearing us to shreds if necessary – to replace our feeble pleasures with lasting desire for himself.

Sadly, in our culture two false responses to suffering have become deeply embedded in the Church: deadly dualism and shallow stoicism. Each can effectively hijack God’s good purpose in suffering. Torn to Heal equips us to understand and reject these false and self-defeating approaches to suffering, and to embrace God’s good purpose in our trials.

Nourishing the Seed by Bob Mumford. Free on 8/29/13
Learning to Love what Father Loves

Other seeds fell on good soil, and yielded grain—some a hundred times as much as was sown, some sixty times as much, and some thirty (Matthew 13:8 AMP).

Nourishing the Seed is the result of well-known Bible teacher and author Bob Mumford’s spiritual walk with the Lord. You will come alongside his unfolding journey over the past 55 years of learning to love what God loves. Like his book Mysterious Seed—Maturing in Father’s Love, he passes along to you the bag of seed that the Father gave him.

The DNA of the acorn enables it to become all that God the Father intended: a huge, symmetrical, and fully formed oak tree. Father’s Seed in you comes to maturity in the same way. Nourishing the Seed helps you:

Understand Agape love as the mysterious Kingdom Seed that must be cultivated and nourished to grow and produce fruit in your life.
Address the issues that keep that nourishment from happening.

Thoughts and Questions at the end of each chapter provoke deep and inspiring introspection to form a more meaningful relationship with God the Father. Helpful diagrams and charts throughout also add depth of understanding.

Nourishing the Seed is a compilation of powerful, daily, devotional-size teachings designed to move you spiritually forward. Rather than vague concepts and principles, these teachings will nourish the Seed that is growing within you—the serious believer—so that you can be unshakable and learn to love what Father loves.

The Inspired Leader by Richard Blackaby. Free on 8/29/13
“If you were to ask me where I see God at work today,” writes Richard Blackaby, acclaimed speaker and bestselling co-author, with his father Henry Blackaby, of Experiencing God, “I would tell you, ‘In the marketplace.’” This observation has birthed his newest book The Inspired Leader: 101 Biblical Reflections for Becoming a Person of Influence (August 2012, Russell Media), a compilation of 101 short stories and reflections written by Blackaby and numerous Christian CEOs who work for $100 million companies.

Compelling, challenging and amazingly applicable, The Inspired Leader offers a “spiritual oasis” for business and church leaders.

“The business world can quickly parch our spiritual vitality,” Blackaby notes. “It regularly bombards us with materialistic attitudes. The love of money is widespread. Greed, corruption, selfishness is ubiquitous…As we progress through the week, the spiritual “high” we experienced on Sunday can quickly morph into a desolate wilderness by Friday.”

Rife with Scripture, each reflection offers a real-life scenario involving prolific business people of the past and present. Drawing on lessons from people such as Bernie Madoff, Malcom Gladwell, Henry Ford and Walt Disney, Blackaby and the contributors tie everything back to the Lord and the dependence leaders need to put in Him.

Every story ends with three thought-provoking questions for reflection designed to take a deep and honest look into the reader’s faith journey inside and outside of the workplace. The questions are immensely challenging, since Blackaby and prominent leaders are well-aware of the temptation to devote one’s life to work.

“One of the greatest challenges for business people is to maintain a close walk with Christ while they are immersed in the frenetic demands and schedule of the marketplace,” Blackaby says. “With all the demands upon us, how can we carve out adequate time to spend with our Lord?”

Blackaby is upfront about the fact that The Inspired Leader won’t change someone, but the Holy Spirit can.

“A devotional cannot change your life,” he writes. “But the Holy Spirit, who is with you as you read, can. Welcome His involvement into your life. Eagerly respond to His promptings. Trust Him regardless of how impossible His word may appear to you. And obey. Immediately.”

Whether readers are working in a secular or Christian workplace, whether their faith is thriving or parched, The Inspired Leader is certain to be an oasis and comfort in their spiritual journey.

Fighting for Peace by Dennis D. Morgan. Free on 8/29/13
Conflict in relationships is a fact of life. When people are around each other there is not only the potential for conflict, but there is going to be conflict in some form, to some extent, at some time. Rather than fearing conflict, Dr. Dennis Morgan encourages readers to see conflict as an invitation from God to strengthen relational closeness. Fighting for Peace will challenge you to consider your personal relationship with God, to more fully know and examine yourself, and to move toward others in humility – combating conflict with character.

Praise for Fighting for Peace:

“Many counseling books today feature stories of how ‘John and Sally’ came for help, provide a few features of their tortuous life, and end with–usually–an account of transformation. A different pathway has been chosen in this book, and–in my own view–a better one. Writing with the experience of someone who works on the sharp edge of personal counseling, Dr Morgan’s thinking is anchored in vital biblical teaching, patiently expounded from Scripture, and then carefully drawn out in application. These pages will be read with care and gratitude, for they hold out the promise of help for all those who give counsel as well as for those who need it.”
–Sinclair B. Ferguson, Senior Minister of The First Presbyterian Church of Columbia

“Conflict. It’s all around us. In our world…our nation…our homes. The need for resolution is imminent. In his book, Fighting for Peace, Dr. Morgan presents us with a fresh and new virtue-based positive paradigm for conflict resolution.”
–Dr. Tim Clinton, President of The American Association of Christian Counselors

“We Christians speak of the gospel as life giving, but often we struggle to bring the good news of Christ into our day-to-day living. This book will help. Dennis Morgan weaves together his extensive experience as a psychologist, love for theology, and practical wisdom into this readable invitation to godly humility.”
–Mark R. McMinn, Ph.D., Professor, George Fox University

About the Author:

Dennis Morgan, Psy.D. (Rosemead School of Psychology, Biola University), M.A.T.S. (Reformed Theological Seminary), is a professor in the Graduate School of Columbia International University and is in counseling practice at the Christian Counseling Center of First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, SC. He has written articles and materials related to Christian counseling and spiritual growth, including his previous book Life in Process. Dr. Morgan and his wife, Cynde, are also with Mission to the World, doing consulting and member care through Pro-Family Counseling in Vienna, Austria. They have been married 34 years and have two college age children.

Paul the Disciple by Nathan M. Hausman. Free on 8/11/13
Are you a Bible reader? Have you ever wondered about the Apostle Paul’s “thorn in the flesh, messenger of Satan?” If so, then you are going to like this book. For as long as I have been reading the Bible as a part of my daily discipline, I have been perplexed by Paul’s statements in 2 Corinthians 12:5-10, a passage commonly referred to as his “thorn in the flesh.” What was it? How did he get it? Who sent it to him and why? What was it doing to him that he would describe as “torment?”

It was in April of 2011 that I set out to find the answers. After two years of research, journaling, editing, reading, contemplation, and prayer, I have completed my quest and published my findings for your reading pleasure.

I have to believe that there are other Christians out there that would want to know the truth about Paul’s thorn. Think about this: There is only one time in New Testament Scripture when Jesus said ‘no’ to an earnest request; am I the only one that finds that odd? In His days spent here on earth, Jesus gave sight to the blind, healed multitudes of people, raised the dead to life, and delivered many from demon possession; why say no to the Apostle Paul?

What I can tell you upfront is that I ventured out to find a few simple answers for my own personal satisfaction, but what I found in the process was something that I am compelled to share with you.

This book, brothers and sisters, is my offering to you. Please do enjoy!

Home for Christmas by Melanie Wilber. Free on 8/11/13
I wrote this story during the Christmas season after attending an annual women’s dinner at my church. The festive time fit in perfectly with the rhythm of the holidays, and I knew the setting would make an excellent first scene in a Christmas tale. Two of the main characters, Lindsay and her elderly friend Ruth were consuming my thoughts a few days later. Their sweet friendship was delightful to imagine, and although I didn’t know where their story was headed, I knew I wanted to be along for the journey.

Sorrow came to our family before Christmas arrived. My father-in-law passed away, and the weeks that followed were a unique time of enjoying the holidays and grieving the loss of a close family member. We tried to go on and celebrate Christmas the way we knew he wanted us to, and writing this story was one of the ways my soul had rest during that time. I found comfort in writing about these characters who also struggle to find a balance between joy and grief. May their story encourage you to find contentment in the difficult realities of life and ongoing hope for better days ahead.

Home For Christmas; A Christmas Story:

It’s Lindsay’s favorite time of year. Bound for her childhood home in the central mountains of Washington State, she is looking forward to spending two weeks with her family as they enjoy the holidays together. Some changes are on the horizon, however. One is joyous and fitting for the holidays, but another doesn’t fit at all. The loss of a loved-one at Christmas? How can it be, and how can she cope with tragedy at a time like this?

Her family grieves the loss with her, and God has some unique ways of turning her heart toward the silver lining. But will she have the faith to believe in the blessings He’s had in mind all along? After waiting so many years to find her true love, can a bizarre turn of events lead her straight to him, or is it all too good to be true? Will she allow the grief to be replaced with unparalleled joy or shut down her cautious heart and remain alone in her confusion and despair?

“Home For Christmas” will delight your heart, make you cry, and remind you of the faithfulness of God. Even when our circumstances are beyond our control, they are never beyond His ability to turn our hearts back to peace, joy, and the unpredictable journey of going deeper into His love.

Reason to Believe! by W.F. WHITE. Free on 8/11/13
Are you the type of person who wonders about the afterlife and where you will go after you die? Do you ever wonder about the very purpose of life itself? I am that type of person, and I always knew that there had to be more to life than the day by day drudgery of working, growing old and then dying. During the 1970s my analytical mind kicked into high gear, and I was overcome by an insatiable desire for truth. I came to the conclusion that I had absolutely nothing to lose and much to gain in my quest for truth. I knew that one day I was going to die, and I wanted to be ready for that day. I saw that some people died in their youth while others lived to a ripe old age, but they all had one thing in common, they all died. Even if a person lived to be one hundred years old, what is that in the spectrum of eternity? What does it all mean? It means absolutely nothing.

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For WHAT IS YOUR LIFE? It is even a VAPOUR, that appeareth for a little time, and then VANISHETH away. (James 4:14)

As a young man I would pick up a Bible and flip through the pages, wondering what it was all about. There were so many different books within the Bible, and often the print was so small that before long I would put it back on the table again. Perhaps you have tried in the past to understand the Bible, but you also came away frustrated and bored. I know how you feel because I have been there and done that. I have often wondered “What does this have to do with me?” I am here to encourage you to give the Bible another chance, and hopefully you will be able to put the pieces together for yourself as the Lord blesses your understanding. I remind you that it is my goal to show you, through the Scriptures, that Jesus Christ is the One whom you are looking for, though you may not realize that now.

The subtitle of this book “Biblical Proof: Jesus Christ is the Only Way to Heaven” speaks for itself, and this book is chock full of passages from the Bible, which prove that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.I have also included snippets of my personal testimony throughout the book. It is my hope that I will save you some of the time and trouble that I went through in my search for truth, and I pray that you will come to know the real Jesus Christ.

Love in the House by Chris Jeub. $2.99 on 8/11/13
When the TLC camera crew ventured into the Jeub home for nearly two weeks of filming, they were forced to explain why they chose to have so many children, how they manage our household, and what they do that seems to create so much love in the house. TLC captured over 50 hours of footage but cut it down to a mere 44 minutes. Needless to say, most of what the Jeubs shared ended up on the editing floor. Numerous questions for their family hung in the air after the debut of the “Kids by the Dozen” episode:

How do they keep their grocery bill below $600/month?
What other creative ideas besides the Birthday Bash do they do?
What ever became of their estranged relationship with their oldest daughter?
Wendy looks like she’s a teenager. What keeps her looking so good after 13 (in 2007) kids?
Their lifestyle scares the daylights out of me. Why not them?

Families of all sizes will appreciate the Jeubs’ creative solutions to raising children and managing a home. More importantly, Chris and Wendy honestly tell their life story—trials and blessings alike—that will inspire its readers to a renewed vision for family life.

Mistakes Leaders Make by Dave Kraft. $1.99 on 8/11/13
Following his first book on leadership, Leaders Who Last, Dave Kraft consulted with colleagues, readers, and fellow leaders to generate a list of the top ten fatal mistakes leaders make—fatal in that they can be the end of ministry effectiveness, relationships, and God’s blessing. Drawing on his extensive experience in helping leaders avoid these errors, Kraft methodically addresses each mistake by looking at the problem, the principle, and the practice of a solution. He uses the narrative device of a fictitious church leadership team to illustrate his points in an engaging manner and offers us a professional book, for male and female leaders, written at a trade level.
Facing Your Giants by Max Lucado. $3.03 on 8/11/13
You know your Goliath. You recognize his walk, the thunder of his voice.

He taunts you with bills you can’t pay, people you can’t please, habits you can’t break, failures you can’t forget, and a future you can’t face. But just like David, you can face your giant, even if you aren’t the strongest, the smartest, the best equipped, of the holiest.

David. You could read his story and wonder what God saw in him. His life has little to offer the unstained, straight-A saint. He fell as often as he stood, stumbled as often as he conquered. But for those who know the sound of Goliath, David gives this reminder:

Focus on giants — you stumble; focus on God — your giants tumble.

If you’re ready to face your giants, let his story inspire you. The same God who helped him will help you.

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. $2.99 on 8/11/13

In the summer of 1953, two eleven-year-old boys—best friends—are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy’s mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn’t believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God’s instrument.

Carly is forced to seek a position as governess in the house of Lord Huntington, the Earl of Dunfordshire—a man alone in his own right—and under suspicion for the tragic murder of his well-known and adulteress wife. His governess’s honesty and forthrightness quickly offend his noble person, and he finds himself reeling from her constant evaluation of his lack of parenting skills. However, in the midst of his resentments, he finds himself strangely drawn in by her very no-nonsense ways that drive him to madness. Carly stands her ground in head-to-head battles of will that take her to the brink of dismissal.

Carly and the earl continually fight the feelings growing between them. Both are oblivious to the clouds of deceit and intrigue that are growing around the manor house, some bent upon removing the beautiful, headstrong governess permanently. A final desperate chase leads to an interception of a ship upon the high seas headed for the Mediterranean and a secret society of white-slave traders, opening the way for this book’s sequel.
