Neva Shilling has a heavy load of responsibility while her husband travels to neighboring communities and sells items from his wagon. In his absence, she faithfully runs the Shilling Mercantile, working to keep their business strong as the Depression takes its toll, and caring for their twins.

When a wagon pulls up after supper, Neva and her children rush out—and into the presence of the deputy driving a wagon carrying three young children. The deputy shocks her with the news that Warren and his wife have died, insisting it was their last request that the three children go live with “Aunt Neva.”

Neva’s heart is shattered as she realizes that Warren’s [ … ]

It’s up to the warrior angel Validus and his hand-picked team of heavenly agents to protect the unbelieving [ … ]

SNEAK PEEK: THE RAGAMUFFIN GOSPEL by Brennan Manning, Special Edition

“This is a book I wrote for myself and anyone who has grown
weary and discouraged along the Way.”
—Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel

Read the first chapter of The Ragamuffin Gospel.

Many of us believe in grace, yet we live as if we still have to earn God’s love. We picture God hanging His head in disappointment, tallying our successes and failures on a score sheet. We assume we have to do more, or be a different person, for God to be pleased with us.

Brennan Manning shows us a different, truer image of our relationship with God: We come to God as ragamuffins. Bedraggled, dirty, exhausted. But as we sit at God’s feet, He smiles upon us. He embraces us. He treats us not as failures but as the chosen objects of His love.

SNEAK PEEK: Luther and Katharina by Jody Hedlund

She was a nun of noble birth. He, a heretic, a reformer… an outlaw of the Holy Roman Empire.

Click here to download an excerpt from Luther and Katharina.

In the 16th century, nun Katharina von Bora’s fate fell no further than the Abbey.

Until she read the writings of Martin Luther.
His sweeping Catholic church reformation–condemning a cloistered life and promoting the goodness of marriage–awakened her desire for everything she’d been forbidden.

Including Martin Luther himself.

The attraction—and tension—between them is undeniable. Yet Luther holds fast to his convictions and remains isolated, refusing to risk anyone’s life but his own. Katharina longs for love, but is strong-willed. She clings proudly to her class distinction, pining for nobility over the heart of a reformer.

They couldn’t be more different.

But as the world comes tumbling down around [ … ]
