Spotlight: ALL FOR ONE
Brimming with heart, humor, and a bit of mystery, this third book in Melody Carlson's lively new Boomer series packs a poignant punch! In this honest and heartfelt book a quartet of fifty-something women learn that life is complicated, but friends are the best family a girl can have.
Shelley Shepard Gray: Train To Win
Author Shelley Shepard Gray has a brand-new Amish romance in stores—The Caregiver, the first in her new Families of Honor series. "I like to write stories about people who have a strong faith, a quieter way of life, but aren't perfect." Details here!
Novel ROOMS inspires church curriculum
A small group curriculum kit for churches is being developed based on author James L. Rubart's novel Rooms. The kits will be available in September with an expanded study guide and teaching DVD led by the author. Details here!
Francis Chan: Give Now
Author Francis Chan offers a tale about giving generously with Ronnie Wilson's Gift, illustrated by Jim Madsen. Chan cautions it can't be taught to a child simply by reading to them. "[Children] can only internalize this lesson as they learn to give generously along with their parents."
Q&A: Adam Graham
Author Adam Graham discusses his and wife Andrea's superhero comedy Tales Of The Dim Knight. "Alongside the antics it also has a strong Christian element and a marriage in trouble -- so Dim Knight is a blend of The Tick and Fireproof, though the exact mixture is a trade secret."
