Vanishing Grace by Philip Yancey. Yancey asks why Christians continue to lose respect, influence, and reputation in modern culture. Yet people everywhere still thirst for grace. How can Christians present truly Good News amid the changing landscapes of our time? Why do so many people dislike Christians? How can we communicate faith in an appealing way to future generations?

Just 18 Summers by Rene Gutteridge. After the death of Butch Browning’s wife, four families begin to realize how fleeting life is at every stage. Butch is facing single parenthood; the O’Reillys are expecting their first baby; the Andersons are soon-to-be empty nesters; and the Buckleys are spoiling their children. How will these parents make the most of this precious time?

Song of Redemption by Lynn Austin. When King Hezekiah discovers that God’s Law forbids him to take multiple wives, he must choose one woman to love. He must also choose to trust God’s promises when he decides to rebel against his powerful Assyrian overlords. The tension mounts as the Assyrians march closer. With his officials advising him to submit to the Assyrians, Hezekiah’s faith is once more severely tested. You will have a whole new appreciation for King Hezekiah after reading this book.
