Average Joe: God’s Extraordinary Calling to Ordinary Men by Troy Meeder. As young boys, we dreamed of being pilots, firefighters, doctors, and cowboys. Now we’re older, with a wonderful wife and kids, as well as a mortgage, a minivan, and a fulfilling but not-so-glamorous job. What happened? All the dreams that once inspired us have evaporated into traffic jams, computer screens, bills, and deadlines. Why is life so ordinary? If you think your life is nothing special, take a look at it through God’s eyes. The truth is that God chooses “ordinary,” faithful men to do His most important work

 

Reading the Bible After Christendom by Lloyd Pietersen. This book seeks to examine what reading the Bible might look like in the current period when the church is no longer central and the Christian story is not well known.

 

Youth: Alone Yet Not Alone by Tracy Leininger Craven. A true story about a miraculous survival. An extraordinary faith. The Leininger family celebrates the blessings of a beautiful homestead and bountiful harvest. Until tragedy strikes with the beginning of the French-Indian War, and the devastating raid known as the Penn’s Creek Massacre. The lives of this family are forever altered when Barbara and Regina, are carried away by a band of Allegheny warriors. Driven by their faith in God and the powerful bonds of family, Barbara and Regina hold firmly to the belief that they are never alone, and that they will be reunited again.
