Estella – A Modern-Day Story of Esther

by Tina Samo

Tucked away between the pages of Nehemiah and Job is the intriguing story of Esther, a young orphan girl who suddenly finds herself in a beauty contest to become the next queen of Persia. It has all of the ingredients of a delightful fairy tale, yet reveals important truths from God’s Word.

What would the story of Esther look like today? What relevant issues would Esther face in today’s culture? How would God use her for a time such as this?

Meet Estella, a modern-day Esther. Orphaned at a young age, she is taken in by a devoted uncle who raises her to love and trust the Lord. Her faith is challenged when she is uprooted from her high school mid-year to attend an elite, private school where she feels anything but welcome. As she is elevated to a prestigious position, she is met with envy and threats. Yet God is faithful. Estella’s plight has not gone unnoticed. She is befriended by an unlikely ally who proves more than trustworthy.

Then Estella realizes that all is not as it seems in this school. When she learns that Christians have been accused of intolerance and targeted for systematic removal, she is forced to make a choice: risk her future by revealing her faith or remain safely silent.

Find how God uses her decision in ways she could never have imagined.



ZAZEN: The Essential Guide for Practicing Zen Meditation in the Lotus Position

by Bino Schree

If you’re interested in learning to practice the art of Zazen meditation, then this book is for you!

Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet, or Kindle device.

Zazen (坐禪) is a kind of meditation practiced by a particular group of Japanese Buddhists, and literally means “to sit in meditation.” The focus of Zazen does not lie in the act of sitting or meditating itself, but rather in using certain actions to achieve enlightenment upon oneself. Think of Zen as the bow and Zazen as the arrow. The bow is the guiding theory behind the practice, while Zazen is the arrow which puts that practice into action. The better you understand the bow and the better you control the arrow, the better you’ll be at hitting your target. When done correctly, Zazen can bring awareness to your life, enabling you to discover a better, freer you. In this book, I’m going to guide you through the concepts of Zen and Zazen, the rituals involved in Zazen, how to actually practice Zazen, the four ways of sitting during Zazen, what to pay attention to with regard to your clothing, posture, and the cosmic mudra when practicing Zazen, as well as some meditative breathing techniques.

  • Understanding Zazen Rituals
  • What You’ll Need

A New Perspective on the Book of Job

by Winson Elgersma

The Book of Job, perhaps one of the greatest pieces of poetic wisdom in both ancient and modern literature, has had countless commentators. One wonders whether there is anything left to say, or whether any new theme of the book could be offered.
Winson Elgersma, in this, A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON THE BOOK OF JOB, has a surprising new take on the theme of Job, one that many Christians will find both enlightening and joyful.
In a book with such depth of wisdom and complexity as the Book of Job, Elgersma, with his trained legal mind, brings out its beauty and insight, long obscured in its complicated presentation, and makes its thoughts more fully knowable. The complicated constructs and poetic language, of the arguments between Job and his three friends, are now presented simply, clearly and concisely.
Many of us miss the subtle point that Job’s friends slandered God. With a lawyer’s understanding of the legal term of slander, Elgersma argues that God does not make faulty products, and that His Creation, including people, have the capacity to unfold in accordance with the creative potential, beauty and good with which it was initially imbued.
Most important, this book will be a revelation for many Christians, and will bring hope and joy to their lives.

Life is not measured just based on material things, but rather on pursuing God’s unique plan for one’s existence. Are you experiencing spiritual emptiness? How wide is the distance between you and the abundant life promised in God’s word? Can one truly enjoy abundant life in a world full of innumerable challenges?

In his book, Five Keys to Abundant Life: Redefining Success in a Stressed Society, Pastor Emmanuel Eliason, explores the true meaning of abundant life from a solid biblical perspective and outlines five indispensable keys for unlocking the doors to abundant life.

This book will equip you with knowledge as to how to seek God first, refocus your attention on the importance of speaking the word of God, rekindle your passion for prayer, discover the secret of sowing what you want to reap, and finally, challenge you to apply all these keys by taking action now!



Refocus

by Ruben Barreto

Today, I want you to declare and believe that you are already making a comeback from whatever is trying to hold you back. You are not some toy of the Devil. You are a born again, blood bought, Christian. You may have needed to refocus, but that never took away the truth that God has a purpose and a blessing for your life. Whatever it takes, begin to refocus on what is most important in your life.



Misfits: War Over Identity

by Tameka Williams

Does your identity speak truth about your inner self, or are you pretending to be something you aren’t to fit in this world? Have you lost yourself, due to tragedy, poverty, broken heartedness, bad relationships or bad decisions? Do you believe God has more for you, but you don’t know what your next move is? We, as people in general, struggle and go through life with an “orphan like spirit” and it leads to a detrimental path or an alternate path than what God has for you.

But now in this hour God is calling you forth- the broken, the over looked, the rebels, the misfits. God is drawing you because now is the time, it doesn’t matter what you have done, or what has been done to you. God wants you and is zealous over you. God desires to bring course correction to your path and heal every broken area of your life.

In Misfits, War over Identity, Tameka Williams shares a heart-wrenching journey through parental loss, rape, and the downward spiral she found herself on. After developing a personal relationship with God, she explains healing and restoration that God has for us all, no matter what our past looks like. This book is not about religion or going to church, it’s about a relationship with God as a Father, through Jesus Christ. God has chosen you, whether you are ready for Him or not. It’s time for the real you to wreak havoc in the kingdom of darkness for the glory of God.



Dancing in the Rain

by Eileen Rife

Loni Parker, a music major struggling to find employment, seeks refuge at Camp Hope only to encounter the man who took her sight.

On the verge of college graduation, Loni Parker seeks employment as a music teacher, but no one will hire her since she’s blind. Or so she thinks. To take her mind off her troubles, her roommate invites her to spring retreat at Camp Hope in the gorgeous North Carolina mountains. Unbeknown to Loni, Michael Ackerman, the director, is an ex-con responsible for the accident that caused her blindness. When Loni warms up to camp and wants to return as a summer counselor, Michael opposes the idea, which only makes Loni want to prove herself all the more. Though she doesn’t expect to fall for the guy. Still, her need for independence and dream of teaching win out, taking her far away from her beloved Camp Hope . . . and a certain director.

Camp director Michael Ackerman recognizes Lonie instantly and wants to avoid her at all costs. Yet, despite the guilt pushing him from her, a growing attraction draws him to the determined woman. She sees more with her heart than the average person does with his eyes. But her presence also dredges up a long-buried anger toward his alcoholic father that he’d just as soon keep hidden. When circumstances spin out of control, Michael is forced to face a past that may destroy his present.
