Life is so confusing! There is a myriad of voices clambering for our attention – which one is the ‘right one’? Decisions, rather than being biblical, or good, or even moral, often feel like a stab in the dark, hoping for the best. This third title in the First Steps series looks at the wisdom offered in the book of Proverbs. God has not left us to navigate life as best we can alone – guidance is waiting if we only take the time to look.
Uncover the true love story behind the famous hymn that stirs the hearts and ignites the faith of millions around the globe.
Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found…
Now remembered as the author of the world’s most famous hymn, in the mid-eighteenth century as England and France stand on the brink of war, John Newton is a young sailor wandering aimlessly through life. His only duty is to report to his ship and avoid disgracing his father—until the night he hears Polly Catlett’s enchanting voice, caroling. He’s immediately smitten and determined to win her affection.
An intense connection quickly forms between the two, but John’s reckless spirit and disregard for the Christian life are concerns for the responsible, devout Polly. When an ill-fated stop at a tavern leaves John imprisoned and bound, Polly must choose to either stand by his side or walk out of his life forever. Will she forfeit her future for the man she loves?
A country singer, a bodyguard, and a mystery that ties them together.
Four years after the death of her husband, Kayla Keller’s dreams of making it big in the country singing industry are the only thing keeping her sane. When she’s attacked after a concert, she thinks a crazed fan is responsible, but a chilling phone call soon after brings up memories from the past that still haunts her. She hates the idea of a bodyguard trailing her steps, but she relents when she realizes how dangerous the situation has become.
Troy Littman has waited for promotion and chance to head the new division of Bad Boy Bodyguards for a long time. He’s ready to put all his attention into developing the office when he’s given one last assignment: protect a country singer from potential harm. A no-fraternization policy prevents relationships between clients and bodyguards, and Troy has always maintained a professional distance. But Kayla Keller gets under his skin in a way that no other woman has.
Troy has to choose between a relationship he desires and a promotion he’s wanted for a long time. And just when he thinks he has the answer, new information pops up, putting Kayla’s life in even more jeopardy. Will they catch the man who attacked her, or will their growing love slip between their fingers before it has a chance to begin?
Handsome appearance counts for naught unless matched by good character and actions.
That’s the firm opinion of not-so-meek minister’s daughter Lavinia Ellison. So even though all the other villagers of St. Hampton Heath are swooning over the newly returned seventh Earl of Hawkesbury, she is not impressed. If a man won’t take his responsibilities seriously and help those who are supposed to be able to depend on him, he deserves no respect from her. In Lavinia’s pretty, gray eyes, Nicholas Stamford is just as arrogant and reckless as his brother–who stole the most important person in Livvie’s world.
Nicholas is weighed down by his own guilt and responsibility, by the pain his careless brother caused, and by the legacy of war, he’s just left. This quick visit home to St. Hampton Heath will be just long enough to ease a small part of that burden. Asking him to bother with the lives of the villagers when there’s already a bailiff on the job is simply too much to expect.

“Is the experience of God’s grace in your life a thrilling thing? Just thinking about the fact that God, by His own sovereign plan, decided to be gracious to me is overwhelming. There is nothing greater than receiving grace upon grace.” —John MacArthur
Simple definitions can make grace feel like an obvious? even mundane?concept. Nothing could be further from the truth. Grace is the defining feature of the Christian faith. Once we understand how undeserving we are and how much favor we’ve been given, grace becomes shocking, thrilling, inspiring, and contagious.
Best-selling author and pastor John MacArthur illuminates this profound concept with verse upon verse of Scripture. He also shows that misunderstandings about grace have led to some of the church’s greatest problems, perhaps because grace is her most precious gift.
The Truth About Series
For decades, MacArthur has encouraged countless Christians to develop a deeper understanding of the Bible and greater respect for God’s truth. In The Truth About series, he now gathers his landmark teachings about core aspects of the Christian faith in one place. These powerful books are designed to give readers a focused experience that centers on God’s character and how it applies to their daily walk of faith.
