Book Summary:

A National Best Seller! Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler is a soaring debut interweaving the story of a heartbreaking, forbidden love in 1930s Kentucky with an unlikely modern-day friendship Eighty-nine-year-old Isabelle McAllister has a favor to ask her hairdresser Dorrie Curtis. It's a big one. Isabelle wants Dorrie, a black single mom in her thirties, to drop everything to drive her from her home in Arlington, Texas, to a funeral in Cincinnati. With no clear explanation why. Tomorrow. Dorrie, fleeing problems of her own and curious whether she can unlock the secrets of Isabelle's guarded past, scarcely hesitates before agreeing, not knowing it will be a journey that changes both their lives. Over the years, Dorrie and Isabelle have developed more than just a business relationship. They are friends. But Dorrie, fretting over the new man in her life and her teenage son's irresponsible choices, still wonders why Isabelle chose her. Isabelle confesses that, as a willful teen in 1930s Kentucky, she fell deeply in love with Robert Prewitt, a would-be doctor and the black son of her family's housekeeper—in a town where blacks weren't allowed after dark. The tale of their forbidden relationship and its tragic consequences makes it clear Dorrie and Isabelle are headed for a gathering of the utmost importance and that the history of Isabelle's first and greatest love just might help Dorrie find her own way.

At the foot of the Elwha River, the muddy outpost of Port Bonita is about to boom, fueled by a ragtag band of dizzyingly disparate men and women unified only in their visions of a more prosperous future. A failed accountant by the name of Ethan Thornburgh has just arrived in Port Bonita to reclaim the woman he loves and start a family. Ethans obsession with a brighter future impels the damming of the mighty Elwha to harness its power and put Port Bonita on the map. More than a century later, his great-great grandson, a middle manager at a failing fish- packing plant, is destined to oversee the undoing of that vision, as the great Thornburgh dam is marked for demolition, having blocked the very lifeline that could have sustained the town. West of Here is a grand and playful odyssey, a multilayered saga of destiny and greed, adventure and passion, that chronicles the life of one small town, turning Americas history into myth, and myth into a nations shared experience.

Book Summary:

Is God calling me? It’s the foundational question that must be answered by anyone considering entry into ministry leadership and then revisited regularly over a lifetime. Writing to a student and young adult audience—although applicable to leaders of all ages—Iorg declares the purpose of his brief, yet powerful book: “God is calling out a new generation of kingdom leaders who will accelerate the fulfillment of the Great Commission in this generation. My goal is to cut to the heart of the matter and give you tools to work through the call process.” Endorsements “The next best thing to sitting on the porch and discussing this pivotal life question with a wise mentor.” —Ron Ellis, president, California Baptist University “A must read for every seminary student, potential missionary, or pastor-to-be.” —Geoff Hammond, president, North American Mission Board “Every semester students sit down in my office to tell their story and seek a sense of clarity about God's calling for their life. Is God Calling Me? is a great tool for helping them find that clarity. The biblical background and the practical frameworks and stories that Jeff Iorg shares have already been a great help to me in giving those students handles for their questions.” —Darrell Cook, campus minister, Virginia Tech “Acknowledging all believers have a call of God on their life, Iorg effectively categorizes the more specific calls to Christian leadership or missionary service as well as God's call to a particular job or location. His review of the diverse ways God calls will dispel doubts and indecision while giving assurance and confidence.” —Jerry Rankin, president, International Mission Board "I've already been using the contents of Is God Calling Me? in presentations to students here at our seminary. Jeff Iorg has certainly written a volume that speaks to a crucial need for all seminarians. The issue of call has always been paramount to seminarians, but I think its necessity is even more obvious in these early days of the 21st century." —Byron D. Klaus, president, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary

Book Summary:

Logging manager Matt Shaw is wary when Kayla Edwards, the owner of Mountain Specialty Spices, hires his firm to harvest timber on her Appalachian property. It's a place he knows better than the back of his calloused hand—it's his family's old homestead, lost years ago in a painful foreclosure. He's hauled himself up from dirt-floor poor since then, and resolves to stay professional…but Kayla's vivacious beauty makes it hard to focus on his job. Home. That's how army-brat-turned-foodie Kayla feels about her new mountain hideaway. What's more, the hottest lumberjack ever to swing an axe has agreed to manage her timber crop and get the old maple syrup operations back on tap. Matt's ruggedly sexy ways and passion for the land have her falling hard. The heat between them grows wild…until Kayla discovers that Matt hasn't been up front with her. She feels devastated and, worst of all, used. How can Matt prove it's her he wants and not her land? 60,000 words

“This is an autobiography honestly sketched in faith and love celebrating a dream come true. This book is recommended not only for family, friends and Afrikans of the Diaspora with the desire to be in Afrika but also for those of the continent, especially Ghana, who can glean the recognition of their hospitality, and to note also the shortcomings which they take for granted and of which the author has shown understanding and tolerance.” —Professor G. Sodah Ayernor, PhD, President, Afrikan Renaissance Foundation “... In the pages that follow the reader will come to admire Adjoa for sharing so many of the intimate details of her life in Ghana! We see her grow spiritually, emotionally, socially and intellectually. This autobiography is a love story between two mature adults. It is a spiritual awakening for Adjoa who learns to trust the God within! It is an inspirational account of faith in the goodness of humanity! It is an identity narrative about discovering what it means to be African. Lastly, it is a coming of age tale—in Ghana Adjoa learned to embrace her own agency as a woman of African descent!” —Nancy J. Fairley

Book Summary:

Isaiah 61:1: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound." My eyes racing over the words, my heart pounding harder, I'm still hitting the pipe. I can't wait to get done with this stuff. Today is January 10. I felt something unsettling that day. Guilt and shame are my constant companions. I want to stop, but I can't. I don't understand Lord. I really want to stop smoking. "You can't get out this way," Craig shouted at me, obvious disgust and frustration in his voice. "We'll go over the wall," I said, without turning around. Please Lord, don't let me smoke today.
