Philip Bones is a fearless warrior — one who never acknowledges the possibility of defeat.
As a juvenile probation officer, the young man is constantly engaged in spiritual warfare.
But there’s more to Mr. Bones than being a courthouse pigeon. God has burdened his heart to transform the lives of anger-driven, rebellious juvenile delinquents.
More often than not, the wayward youths he sets out to save have no intentions of ever escaping their paths to self-destruction.
Alden Wamboldt, his newest client, is a great example. The thirteen-year-old got himself into legal trouble by assaulting his grandmother with a baseball bat. Who does that? The boy shows no remorse. How dare his grandma confiscate his cell phone!
Motivating Alden to overcome his anger outbursts is going to be a HUGE undertaking. Everyone who knows the teen expects him to either wind up behind bars or in an early grave.
Regardless of what anyone else thinks, Philip Bones is determined his client can beat the odds. Through unorthodox methods, acts of self-sacrifice, and plenty of tough-love, he’s certain he can make a difference.
Mr. Bones might not be able to change the world, but he can make an impact — one teenage criminal at a time.

In a world of hype, we may buy into the idea that through Jesus, we’ll be healthier and wealthier as well as wiser. So what happens when we become ill, or depressed, or bankrupt? Did we do something wrong? Has God abandoned us? As a child, Michael Horton would run up the down escalator, trying to beat it to the top. As Christians, he notes, we sometimes seek God the same way, believing we can climb to him under our own steam. But we can’t, which is why we are blessed that Jesus descends to us, especially during times of trial. In Too Good to Be True, Horton exposes the pop culture that sells Jesus like a product for health and happiness and reminds us that our lives often lead us on difficult routes we must follow by faith. This book offers a series of powerful readings that demonstrate how, through every type of earthly difficulty, our Father keeps his promises from Scripture and works all things together for our good.
