Return to Me by Lynn Austin. After years of watching his children and grandchildren wander from their faith, Iddo’s prayers are answered: King Cyrus is allowing the Jews to return to Jerusalem. He joyfully prepares for their departure, only to learn that his family, grown comfortable in the pagan culture of Babylon, wants to remain. His grandson feels torn between his grandfather’s ancient beliefs and the comfort and success his father enjoys in Babylon. But he soon begins to hear the voice of God, encouraging him to return to the land given to his forefathers.

Son of the Underground by Albrecht Kaul. His father was an enemy of the state. His mother was told to have an abortion. His teachers mocked him. He didn’t meet his father until he was four years old. And his family lived on the run for years. Yet Isaac Liu, son of Brother Yun, survived to serve the Lord as a pastor and evangelist himself!

Go to Church Change the World: Christian Community as Calling by Gerald G. Mast. Drawing on Anabaptist life and conviction, Mast presents Christ’s call to all believers to be the church, whether gathered for worship or scattered for service. By exploring such practices as baptism, communion, singing, and group discussion, readers will consider how participation in the life of the church shapes their daily witness in the world.
