More than a century after his death D. L. Moody remains a towering figure whose influence of his evangelism is still felt; the institutions he founded in America continue to flourish; his place in history is secure. But it is his personality that commands attention: rugged, delightful, compassionate, a man of total integrity, with a supreme gift for bringing Christianity before a whole range of contemporary hearers and putting them to work for God. Dwight Lyman Moody (even his wife called him D. L.) was the outstanding evangelist of his time – in his pioneering endeavour and fervour Moody has become an enduring figure of stature and inspiration. He landed at Liverpool, England, unknown and unexpected but when he left Britain -Scotland, Ireland and England were at his feet, he was contagious! John Pollock captures this infectiousness in his classic biography.

He’s raising the son she gave up for adoption. They’re falling for each other, but he doesn’t know she is the mother of his child.
Giving her baby up was the hardest thing Emery Chase had to do, but when she saw her son seven years later in a chance encounter at the grocery store, she wasn’t sure how to handle it. He looked exactly like the pictures she received every six months, and her heart yearned to have a relationship with the child she was forced to give up.
After a car accident that left Seth Wellington with two broken arms, he needed caregiving assistance. The moment Emery Chase presented herself for an interview, he knew she was different but not in a good way. Her edgy appearance was more than his conservative mindset could handle, but her inability to be intimidated won him over in the end.
When two people who couldn’t be more different fell for each other, everything seemed almost perfect until Emery revealed who she really was.
Would they have the chance to become a family or was the betrayal too much to overcome?
*This is a contemporary Christian story with strong Biblical themes and Bible references.
The writings of Jeremiah Burroughs are some of the most readable and engaging Puritan works available. Like his Puritan colleagues, Burroughs sought to explain biblical teaching in a heart-searching manner. In this biography, Phillip L. Simpson opens a window into the life and times of Burroughs, providing the context for his memorable sermons and writings. What becomes apparent is Burroughs’s consistent application of the principles he preached to the conduct of his life. An ardent call for a gospel-driven life and a peaceable character is reflected in both his books and life, which stand out remarkably in an era of turmoil and revolution. This is the first book-length biography of Jeremiah Burroughs.

“A man whose books are known and treasured almost four centuries after his death is a man worth getting to know. Phillip Simpson has done the church a great service in penning this long-overdue account of the life and impact of Jeremiah Burroughs. I am glad to commend it to you.” — Tim Challies
“Jeremiah Burroughs is (rightly) one of the most beloved Puritans of his day and ours. His precise biblical doctrine and spot-on application have given him a well-deserved place in the first rank of Puritan preachers. And while we have been blessed to have many of his works made available to us of late, we were largely ignorant of anything about Burroughs the man, other than short excerpts from reference works such as the Dictionary of National Biography or Benjamin Brook’s Lives of the Puritans.
Now, thanks to Philip Simpson, that has changed. He has meticulously researched Burroughs’s life and has shown us what made the man who and what he was. I am convinced that until we know the life of a man, we cannot fully understand his theology or his passions. We can now become informed admirers of this great man and can thank God even more for giving him to the church.” — Don Kistler

How did we go from John F. Kennedy declaring that religion should play no role in the elections to Bush saying, “I believe that God wants me to be president”?
Historian Randall Balmer takes us on a tour of presidential religiosity in the last half of the twentieth century—from Kennedy’s 1960 speech that proposed an almost absolute wall between American political and religious life to the soft religiosity of Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society; from Richard Nixon’s manipulation of religion to fit his own needs to Gerald Ford’s quiet stoicism; from Jimmy Carter’s introduction of evangelicalism into the mainstream to Ronald Reagan’s co-option of the same group; from Bill Clinton’s covert way of turning religion into a non-issue to George W. Bush’s overt Christian messages, Balmer reveals the role religion has played in the personal and political lives of these American presidents.
Americans were once content to disregard religion as a criterion for voting, as in most of the modern presidential elections before Jimmy Carter. But today’s voters have come to expect candidates to fully disclose their religious views and to deeply illustrate their personal relationship to the Almighty. God in the White House explores the paradox of Americans’ expectation that presidents should simultaneously trumpet their religious views and relationship to God while supporting the separation of church and state. Balmer tells the story of the politicization of religion in the last half of the twentieth century, as well as the “religionization” of our politics. He reflects on the implications of this shift, which have reverberated in both our religious and political worlds, and offers a new lens through which to see not only these extraordinary individuals but also our current political situation.
