Sixteenth century England. The Protestant Reformation sweeps across Europe into England, bringing political and religious upheaval – and danger to all who embrace this new learning. Into this tumultuous period, young Anne Askew, a gentlewoman from Lincolnshire, forges her way into history.
From the peasant revolt in Northern England, which threatens the very lives of her beloved father and brothers, through a loveless marriage, and finally to the political intrigues of Henry VIII’s court, Anne’s courageous and steadfast faith sustains her. But when her own life is threatened, can Anne’s faith hold true?
Here is the true story of a young English woman, who faced adversity and affliction with the strong belief that Christ is indeed sufficient in all circumstances – and no matter what the cost, the truth of Christ must prevail.
Only Glory Awaits is historical fiction about the life and martyrdom of Anne Askew, a contemporary of Lady Jane Grey.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” — Jesus
Congratulations! Your Goliath Has Arrived.
Enemies often seem to get in the way of our plans, leaving us discouraged and disoriented. But what if these obstacles are a part of God’s plans for us?
Our enemies – whether our weaknesses, circumstances, deep-seated sins, other people, or any other challenge—can become our stepping stool to new breakthroughs in life, if we leverage the opportunity. Just as David’s encounter with Goliath transformed him from a delivery boy to a national hero, our enemies can be a blessing in disguise – if only we recognize and face them head-on.
Human nature tells us to flee our enemies, but Ron Carpenter will challenge you to embrace them. In The Necessity of an Enemy, Ron shares engaging insights like:
• God intended for every enemy to be your footstool for promotion.
• If you want to be number one, you can’t just beat number nine.
• The depth of your battle gives you insight into the greatness of the potential God put in you, and enemies are your key to unlocking that potential.
• All battles are fought over your future, not over your past or present circumstances.
Are you ready to reach your next goal in life? Do you want biblically-based wisdom to help defeat every enemy and move with confidence to your destiny? The Necessity of an Enemy will give you the tools to change your perspective – and find meaning and purpose in all of life’s trials.
Unfit for Love? Pregnant—by a man who will never know or care. Gloria, born into a life of prostitution, sees only one solution: get rid of the child. But then she meets John William MacGregan, a miner, left with a newborn daughter and no one to care for her when his wife died during childbirth. So John and Gloria strike a deal. Gloria will care for Kate, and John will eventually raise her son. There is no offer of, nor seeking for, a hand in marriage. When John leaves the mines to seek his fortune in the new Oregon Territory , Gloria, Kate, and baby Danny must go with him. Yanked away from a life of prostitution, Gloria must finally face the pain that has always plagued her, and her longings for a home, a family, and a life free from shame. Ten Thousand Charms is a beautiful tale of an empty heart floundering…and falling straight into the arms of Christ.
A woman with no future.
A man with no hope.
A God who knows the key to their deepest need lies in each other…
Wyoming Territories, 1860. Gloria is in trouble. A mining camp is a merciless place when you’re young, pregnant…and a prostitute. No matter. Life will not defeat her.
John William McGregan is in despair. His beloved wife died in childbirth. And while John is a resourceful man, raising an infant daughter on his own seems impossible.
Thrown together by a seemingly cruel fate, Gloria and John William make a pact: She will nurse his daughter; he will raise her son. Neither asks for marriage. They are joined by necessity, nothing more.
But after a move to the new Oregon territory, facing John William’s faith day after day, and receiving an older woman’s motherly mentoring, Gloria longs for something more. For the love she’s been denied all her life. If only that life hadn’t made her unfit, not only for John William…but for God.
Then tragedy strikes—making even the resolute John William question his faith. Terrified, Gloria turns to the One she has never been able to trust. But can even God save what now means more to Gloria than life itself: her newfound family?
Can God make something of this mess?
If anyone can create the term messiology, it’s George Verwer. Founder of the world’s largest missions organization, George has spent nearly 60 years leading gospel movements around the globe. Witness to not a few failures—including his own—he can still say this: “I believe history will show that God was doing way more in the midst of our messes than we realized at the time.”
In Messiology, George reflects on his life and ministry to remind us that God works in mysterious ways. He cautions us from getting critical. He urges us toward love, patience, affection, and grace. Major in the majors, minor in rest, and trust God always, even in failure.
Read Messiology, and remember that we’re better together, even when we fall.

This volume highlights points of agreement and disagreement between two leading scholars on the subject of the textual reliability of the New Testament: Bart Ehrman, James A. Gray Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and author of the best-selling book Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why, and Daniel Wallace, Professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary and Executive Director of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts.
This conversation between Ehrman and Wallace allows the reader to see in print how each presents his position in light of the other’s. Contributions follow from an interdisciplinary team featuring specialists in biblical studies, philosophy, and theology. The textual reliability of the New Testament is logically prior to its interpretation and thus important for the Christian religion. This book provides interested readers a fair and balanced case for both sides and allows them to decide for themselves: What does it mean for a text to be textually reliable? How reliable is the New Testament? How reliable is reliable enough?
