What happens when we push past the surface and allow real, grounded, mutually challenging, and edifying friendships to develop? We need only look at the little-known friendship between eminent Christian thinkers Dorothy L. Sayers and C. S. Lewis to find out. Born out of a fan letter that celebrated mystery novelist Sayers wrote to Lewis as his star was just beginning to rise, this friendship between a married woman and a longtime bachelor developed over years of correspondence as the two discovered their mutual admiration of each other’s writing, thinking, and faith.
In a time when many Christians now aren’t even sure that a man and a woman can be “just friends” and remain faithful, Gina Dalfonzo’s engaging treatment of the relationship between two of Christianity’s most important modern thinkers and writers will resonate deeply with anyone who longs for authentic, soul-stirring friendships that challenge them to grow intellectually and spiritually. Fans of Lewis and Sayers will find here a fascinating addition to their collections.
100 Bible Verses That Made America: Defining Moments That Shaped Our Enduring Foundation of Faith
Author(s): Robert J. Morgan
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Price: $1.99 (Ends June 30)
Bestselling author Robert Morgan explores 100 Bible verses that powerfully impacted our leaders during defining moments in American history and reflects upon what these verses mean for us as a nation today.
100 Bible Verses That Made America is a tour through the biblical roots of American history—a powerful exploration of our country’s founders, leaders, and the critical moments that laid the foundation for the formation of the USA. Had there been no Bible, there would be no America as we know it. It is the Bible that made America.
When George Washington was sworn into office as our first president, he did not place his hand on the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States, as important as those documents are. Instead, he swore upon and even kissed the Bible to sanctify this important moment. The Bible, Washington knew, had ushered American history to this point.
While not every Founding Father was a Christian, each was knowledgeable about the Bible. And while none of them was perfect, many embraced a deep faith in the unfailing Word of God.
100 Bible Verses That Made America contains:
Short, devotional-style chapters, each featuring a Bible verse and how it influenced a historical figure
Engaging stories spanning from the Mayflower to modern day
Vivid segments that emphasize the Bible as the cornerstone of American history
Journey with Robert J. Morgan as he shares the Bible’s role in the defining moments of American history and its impact on the people of our nation, reminding us of the beauty of faith and country and reigniting our passion for both.
Did America Have a Christian Founding?: Separating Modern Myth from Historical Truth
Author(s): Mark David Hall
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Price: $3.99 (Ends June 30)
A distinguished professor debunks the assertion that America’s Founders were deists who desired the strict separation of church and state and instead shows that their political ideas were profoundly influenced by their Christian convictions.
In 2010, David Mark Hall gave a lecture at the Heritage Foundation entitled “Did America Have a Christian Founding?” His balanced and thoughtful approach to this controversial question caused a sensation. C-SPAN televised his talk, and an essay based on it has been downloaded more than 300,000 times.
In this book, Hall expands upon this essay, making the airtight case that America’s Founders were not deists. He explains why and how the Founders’ views are absolutely relevant today, showing
that they did not create a “godless” Constitution;
that even Jefferson and Madison did not want a high wall separating church and state;
that most Founders believed the government should encourage Christianity; and
that they embraced a robust understanding of religious liberty for biblical and theological reasons.
This compelling and utterly persuasive book will convince skeptics and equip believers and conservatives to defend the idea that Christian thought was crucial to the nation’s founding–and that this benefits all of us, whatever our faith (or lack of faith).

All fruitful doing must begin with being. For many Christians, it’s easy to be swept up into the fast pace of modern life, desiring to do much for God. But we struggle to slow down and be with God.
According to pastor, Enneagram teacher, and author AJ Sherrill, being with God is what empowers doing for God. Sherrill shares his own journey from “busy” Christianity to the ancient paths of contemplative practices. He equips readers to integrate rhythms of stillness, silence, and solitude, offering step-by-step guidance and examples of finding solitude both personally and on retreats.
Sherrill warns that making these changes appears absurd in a society where time is money, productivity is central, and hurry is a way of life. He guides readers gently through the beginning and often confusing stages of contemplative practice. Citing timely insights from the world of neurology and mental health, he shows that solitude is crucial not only for Christian growth but also for holistic flourishing. Foreword by Rich Villodas.
Readers will emerge, centered in Christ, well on their way to this goal: slow down, pay attention, be still, and be loved.
