Youth: Bash and the Pirate Pig by Burton Cole. When city-dwelling Raymond “Beamer” Boxby is sent to his cousin’s farm for the summer, he isn’t sure how it’ll be fun with no air conditioning or video games. He can’t see what good can come from the country adventures his cousin Bash has, like riding cows, or playing with skunks. But the real discovery is with Bash’s “Fishin’ and Farmin’ book”, which Beamer recognizes—the Bible. From here, Beamer is about to find a truly great adventure through salvation.

The Unburdened Heart by Suzanne Eller. We all know Jesus commands us to forgive. But what about the hard questions that keep coming up?Why should I forgive? I did nothing wrong. Doesn’t forgiveness let the other person off the hook? What if the person who hurt me is still destructive or in denial? Rather than asking you to “just forgive,” Eller gently reveals how forgiveness allows you to let go, or to find shelter, or to get out of the debt collection business once and for all and leave the past to live fully in the present.
