Bestselling Author Unveils New Historical Series
Merrill Krause longs for a family of her own, but she’s bound by a promise to her dying mother to care for her father and older brothers until they no longer need her. She enjoys being part of the family business, harvesting ice during the brutal Minnesota winters. Merrill actively takes part, possessing a keen ability to work with the horses–despite the advice of her good friend, who disapproves of her unladylike behavior.
When Rurik Jorgenson arrives in their small town to join his uncle doing carpentry, he soon crosses paths with Merrill. But unlike other men, who are often frightened away by her older brothers, Rurik isn’t intimidated by them or by Merrill’s strength and lack of femininity. As he thrives under the mentorship of his uncle, Rurik dreams of inheriting the business and claiming Merrill as his wife. But while he is determined to start a new life, the past is determined to follow him when his former fiancee and her brother show up in town. Soon Rurik is put in the center of a major scandal that may damage his relationship with Merrill. Can they learn to trust God–and each other–and embrace the promise of love?

The Gospels include at least fifteen different stories about Jesus’ anger. Jesus’ anger shows us what godly anger is. Although sinful anger cannot achieve the righteousness of God, godly anger can rouse a sleeping church. Godly anger stirs people to wake up and be truthful so that many can be healed. Godly anger is the antidote to arrogance and addictions and senseless violence. It’s the cure for selfish fearfulness and complacency. It’s the spark for moral courage. It’s the match that lights new fire for renewal in the church.
More than 85 percent of churches have under two hundred people in weekly attendance. The tendency is to think these churches are ordinary or everyday—conventional wisdom says that bigger is better and Everyday Churches can have only a limited impact. But when Jesus was teaching people about the Kingdom of God, he didn’t follow conventional wisdom. He compared the Kingdom to a mustard seed—the smallest of seeds, but with the potential to change the landscape. Just like the mustard seed, Everyday Churches are small, but filled with potential. Proliferate: A Church Planting Strategy for Everyday Churches explains how the Everyday Church can fulfill Christ’s vision by helping plant churches across the globe. In Proliferate, the reader will:
Understand that Everyday Churches can be involved in church planting.
Build out a vision for their church’s involvement in church multiplication.
Learn to confront obstacles that stand in the way of church multiplication.
Create a communication strategy to engage their church.
Churches of any size can be involved in church multiplication. Gospel-focused churches need to proliferate for the spread of the gospel and the glory of Jesus.
Josh Hamilton was the first player chosen in the first round of the 1999 baseball draft. He was destined to be one of those rare “high-character ” superstars. But in 2001, working his way from the minors to the majors, all of the plans for Josh went off the rails in a moment of weakness. What followed was a 4-year nightmare of drugs and alcohol, estrangement from friends and family, and his eventual suspension from baseball.
BEYOND BELIEF details the events that led up to the derailment. Josh explains how a young man destined for fame and wealth could allow his life to be taken over by drugs and alcohol. But it is also the memoir of a spiritual journey that breaks through pain and heartbreak and leads to the rebirth of his major-league career.
Josh Hamilton makes no excuses and places no blame on anyone other than himself. He takes responsibility for his poor decisions and believes his story can help millions who battle the same demons. “I have been given a platform to tell my story” he says. “I pray every night I am a good messenger.”
