Gospel doctrine is the lifeblood of mission. Most missionaries in church history have, in preparation for the field, committed themselves to rigorous study and extraordinary theological training, but there has been a move away from that in recent times. E.D. Burns contends that this is dangerous, leaving those who need it most ill–equipped to deal with the difficulties mission life brings. This brotherly and friendly plea challenges those who are already in, or are considering joining, the mission field to rest in Christ’s work and abide in His Word.
Modern men are experiencing unprecedented levels of angst and anxiety. We’re frustrated, stressed, burned out, and bored. We turn to work and wealth, busyness and distraction, alcohol and drugs and pornography. But none of it works. Because only one thing will bring us the joy, peace, purpose, and significance we desire: a relationship with the God of heaven. An intimate relationship, one that is real and true.
But for that kind of relationship, we must embark on a journey to encounter Him personally.
In his new book Odyssey, Justin Camp offers a practical, scriptural field guide for men who are ready to walk this ancient path. The book is built around six short biographies, real-life stories of great American astronauts. These nano-histories will engage readers’ curiosity and inspire them to undertake epic quests of their own.
This book is for scouts and prospectors, for explorers and pilgrims. It is for men who want to experience more and a better life than any of us ever thought possible.
Teresa and her family face two bad options: One, endure poverty and cruel gang violence in Honduras. Or two, ride the Mexican freight train, known as the beast, to find a better life in the United States.
The Mara Salvatrucha gang tortures and kills Teresa’s father and boyfriend and threatens her and her brother. Her mother, Susana, now a widow, chooses the beast as the best of their bad options for Teresa and her brothers. Teresa travels through Guatemala and Mexico with her teenage brother, José, and her six-year-old brother, Pepe. When José falls from the beast to his death, Teresa abandons the beast, only to fall victim to a rapist.
Her fate changes when a Christian missionary in Mexico helps her overcome the devastation and trauma from the rape and restores her faith in God. Teresa makes it to the United States as an undocumented immigrant and falls in love with Matthew, a soccer star. But just when she sees some hope for happiness in her life, Matthew’s sister, Cynthia, betrays Teresa, and deportation tears them apart.

American socialite Lily Durham is known for enjoying one moment to the next, with little regard for the consequences of her actions. But just as she is banished overseas to England as a “cure” for her frivolous ways, the Great War breaks out and wreaks havoc. She joins her cousin in nursing the wounded at a convalescent home deep in the wilds of Scotland at a crumbling castle where its laird is less than welcoming.
Alec MacGregor has given his entire life to preserving his home of Kinclavoch Castle, but mounting debts force him to sell off his family history bit by bit.
