    Tom Hilpert

Jonah Borden, the coffee-guzzling, wisecracking, mystery-solving man of the cloth, is about to tie the knot with his sweetheart, Leyla Bennett. But just a few weeks before they do, Leyla decides to go undercover in a new cult to get an exclusive exposé which would make her name as a journalist. However, as time goes on, Borden is worried that her commitment to the troubling new religion and her devotion to its evil, charismatic leader are more than just professional. When Borden confronts the cult leader, he is turned away and threatened. Assisted by his friends, Jonah tries to find a way to get Leyla out. What he uncovers is bigger than any of them had guessed.

  • Superior Justice

  • changeling

    derek luptak

    A collection of poems chronicling the struggle of sprouting from barren soil. They are about the pain the butterfly experiences while escaping it's cocoon. They are about searching for God when all seems godless. They express that moment of emergence, that unexplainable transformation brought about by the Christian experience. Like the winds, who knows where they go or where they come from? We just enjoy them while they're here.

  • darkness to light

    danny mullins

    A down-to-earth, rubber-meets-the-road account of one man's journey out of depression. Unresolved emotional pain may be the greatest hindrance to becoming the people we were created to be. It can cripple in ways we are not even aware. It shapes our personality, relationships, and family dynamics. It can and will, without our permission, shape the path of our life. If emotional pain is not recognized and addressed, it can burrow deep within our souls and foster a life of darkness and depression.

  • experiential worship

    bob rognlien

    “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength” (Mark 12:30) should center our experience of God. From Christ we learn that biblical worship involves the following: volition (heart), emotion (soul), intellect (mind), and body (strength). Experiential Worship shows you how to create a place where worshipers come face-to-face with the Father. Index included for easy reference. Ideal for churches of all sizes.

  • The Dangerous kind

    graeme sellers

    Too long have we believed that the highest goal of Christianity is conforming people to good behavior, getting folks to follow the rules, making people nice. Now is the time to raise our danger quotient. "The Dangerous Kind" is a call to arms, a broadside on the tavern door decrying the state that Christians find ourselves in and demanding a change, in both attitude and behavior.


    "Must reading for every leader who wants to do more than create a church of merely nice and moral people. I don't recommend many books, but this is at the top of my list of recommendations" - ARC Director, Mike Bradley
