Description : “So when the ship was caught, and could not head into the wind, we let her drive” (Acts 27:15). The meaning here is that the storm was so powerful they surrendered control of the ship to the storm. This book has been in the making for over twenty years. I have observed and experienced the storms of life, the unplanned and unexpected changes that blow into our lives and change the direction we were going. Everyone experiences storms in their lives. Storms can be caused by your own conduct or by the actions of others. Storms can be a satanic attack or just the events of life. It is difficult to see God’s plans in the storm. However, if He has a job for us to accomplish for Him, He will bring the circumstances into our lives to take us where He wants us. “For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve” (Acts 27:23). What a wonderful promise! We do not go through the storms of life alone! He is always with us. Remember the storms of life are never bigger than the God we serve!

Description : “Pulp Fiction meets And Then There Were None” during a high school reunion off the coast of Scotland (Booklist). Gavin Hutchinson has it all planned out. A unique “floating holiday experience” on a converted North Sea oil rig, a haven for tourists who want a vacation but without the hassle of actually going anywhere. What better way to test out his venture than to host a fifteen-year high school reunion, the biggest social event of his life? How embarrassing then for Gavin. Not only does no one remember him, but his wife has discovered his philandering ways and plans to ditch him with a very public announcement in front of his assembled guests. That includes the uninvited ones, like a band of party-crashing mercenaries who are about to bring out the very worst in very old friends. Let the fun begin “as champagne bottles morph into defensive weapons” in prize-winning author Christopher Brookmyre’s comedy of betrayal, double-cross, blackmail, revenge, and survival (The Hartford Courant). “Furiously paced and wonderfully absurd, with more one-liners than a Colombian coke dealer.” —Maxim “Broad humor . . . and breakneck plotting.” —The New York Times Book Review
Description : ***Please note: This ebook edition does not contain the photos found in the print edition.*** The affluent suburb of Cheshire, Connecticut, seemed like the perfect place for Dr. William Petit and his wife, Jennifer Hawke-Petit, to raise their two lovely daughters... Until July 23, 2007, when, according to police, two ex-cons invaded the Petit home hoping to embark on a routine robbery—one that would ultimately prove deadly. What unfolded at 300 Sorghum Mill Drive was a tragic and horrifying sequence of events that shocked a community and made headlines across the nation. Before the morning was over, Mrs. Hawke-Petit and one of her daughters would be sexually assaulted, the entire house would go up in flames, and only Dr. Petit—his head bloodied, his legs bound—would manage to escape with his life. With the help of neighbors and local police, the two suspects were soon found and captured. Now, Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes await trial for murder IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
Description : Most books about Jesus and the Gospels deal with texts, background, culture and authorial intentions. A new approach to the Gospels called Practice Interpretation puts the emphasis on the actual happenings behind the Gospel stories – on what first hearers might have made of them, and on what contemporary disciples today make of them. The concern of the studies in this series is with the "use" of a Gospel story by disciples today, and of its "influence" on them. In this ground-breaking collection, the first in the Practice Interpretation series, people from many different situations describe what the story of Jesus Stilling the Storm actually "sparked off" in their lives.
Description : Some doctors are baffled at the fact that Rev. H. Meredith Hinds is still alive today. They are saying he is a living miracle. Twelve years ago, this preacher was diagnosed with cancer of the throat and was not expected to talk again, far less preach. The chief surgeon told him that during the operation, he could not remove much of the tumor because the cancer cells were so aggressive, that they had already spread to the main artery of the brain, as well as the spinal cord. This man was told that the only help available for such a condition as his was radiation treatment. However, he refused to accept the radiation treatment his doctor had prescribed and decided that he would trust God for his healing instead. You will be greatly challenged by the faith of this amazing man of God. This work is a vital reading for all. It should provide inspiration to those who find themselves in testing situations, and also those in search of faith. Prof. Curwen Best BA (UWI), MPhil (UWI), PhD (Birmingham) Professor of Popular Culture and Literary Studies UWI, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados Quite frankly, your story should be a "bestseller" here in the USA and abroad. It's not only a great book, but it's personable and genuine and it probes at the heart making you want to seek God's face even more. I also enjoyed that you were not puffed up and afraid to talk about your weaknesses. Marisa, New Jersey
