This is the riveting and untold story of the son of the mastermind behind the famous Krupp diamond heist. From the banks of the Concho River during the great depression to the planning and heist of the diamond -later known as the Elizabeth Taylor Diamond- the life of the author’s father comes alive. It’s a true-crime story with a twist. The diamond heist plays a big role in shaping Jim’s life. From helping his dad appeal his case before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to his unlikely conversion at a Billy Graham Crusade, this story will hold your interest from beginning to end.
God used his father’s life of crime, abandonment and the emptiness he experienced to bring the author to faith in Jesus Christ. His life without hope, direction or the support of a father was transformed when he attended the Graham crusade and was disciplined during the memorable days of the Jesus People Movement. After years of poor self-esteem and a personal sense of failure, God delivered him and called him into an active role in missions. This saga of discovery during his pioneer days among unreached, indigenous people groups is captivating. He realized that traditional, oral learners who do not read and write need a new approach. The result was an oral Bible focused on biblical storytelling, dialogue, the parables of Jesus, the poetry of the Bible, drama and the local oral arts including scripture adaptations of song and dance. He was the founder of a creative, one of a kind mission organization that inspires and trains hundreds of global ministries in oral communication methods.
Learn Something New This Christmas
We hate to admit it, but after years, sometimes even decades, of reading the same Luke 2 story of Christmas, we get a little bored—we lose some of the awe we ought to have when discussing the greatest miracle in history. That’s why The Characters of Christmas was written, to help you take a fresh look at the Christmas story by getting to know the minor characters that played a part in Jesus’ birth, such as Zechariah and Elizabeth, the Shepherds, and Herod.
As you slow down, engage your imagination, and enter into the stories of these women and men, you’ll see the most important character—Jesus Christ—with new eyes. And with discussion questions and a Christmas song suggestion at the end of each chapter, it’s perfect for engaging your whole family.
Break free from the familiar, and discover something you never knew about the story you’ve always heard.

Today there are untold voices in print, on television, and online calling for our attention, and so many of these mock or belittle our faith. From coworkers to those calling themselves Christians, the tone has become one of reproach, disparaging the character of God and undermining the authority of the Bible. For those who have a heart for God, it can be intimidating and discouraging.

Is the Bible totally without error?
Did the resurrection really happen?
How do we know that the 66 books of the Bible are from God?
Does the Bible contradict itself?
How were people saved before Jesus came?
What is the purpose and meaning of life?
Did miracles really happen?
Was Genesis derived from ancient myths?
How should we interpret the Bible; should Genesis be literal?
Do you have to believe in a young earth to be saved?
Within these pages you will find responses to those honest questions of faith, helping to build confidence in God’s Word and inspiring your daily walk in His grace and peace.
These powerful biblical insights are soundly presented by more than a dozen respected defenders of the faith, including Ken Ham, John MacArthur, Terry Mortenson, Jason Lisle, Brian Edwards, Tommy Mitchell, Jobe Martin, Georgia Purdom, Bodie Hodge, and Roger Patterson.

Unlike many books about the afterlife, Life after Death makes no appeal to religious faith, divine revelation, or sacred texts. Drawing on some of the most powerful theories and trends in physics, evolutionary biology, science, philosophy, and psychology, D’Souza shows why the atheist critique of immortality is irrational. It is not only reasonable to believe in life after death; it is also beneficial. Such a belief gives depth and significance to this life, a path to happiness, and a reason for hope.
“Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience – or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.”
― Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility
Just a few years after their father’s business scandal shatters their lives, Jane and Celia Woodward find themselves forced out of their San Francisco tea shop. The last thing Jane wants is to leave their beloved shop on Valencia Street, but when Celia insists on a move to Austin, Texas, the sisters pack up their kid sister Margot and Jane’s tea plants, determined to start over yet again.
But life in Austin isn’t all sweet tea and breakfast tacos. Their unusual living situation is challenging and unspoken words begin to fester between Jane and Celia. When Jane meets and falls for up-and-coming musician Sean Willis, the chasm grows deeper.
While Sean seems to charm everyone in his path, one person is immune – retired Marine Captain Callum Beckett. Callum never meant to leave the military, but the twin losses of his father and his left leg have returned him to the place he least expected—Texas.
In this modern spin on the Austen classic, Sense and Sensibility, the Woodward sisters must contend with new ingredients in unfamiliar kitchens, a dash of heartbreak, and the fragile hope that maybe home isn’t so far away.
This brief daily devotional compiled from the writings of A. W. Tozer will help center and prepare your heart to truly be ready for Christmas and recall what Christmas is about and why the Christ child had to come as he did to live and die to redeem those under the law from sin and death.
