by Eric Metaxas
This groundbreaking biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, considered one of the greatest heroes of the twentieth century, is a definitive and deeply moving narrative and a story of moral courage in the face of the monstrous evil that was Nazism.
By David Teems
This shared biography of the first Stuart King of England (James I) and the Bible that goes by his name is a study in paradox as he waddles through history, fashioning himself as “the new Solomon” and how the King James Bible came to be named after him. 2011 is the 400th Anniversary of the Authorized King James version, one of the most widely-read Bible translations in the world.
By Phillip Cary
Drawing on his work with college students, Phillip Cary shows Christians that discipleship is a gradual, long-term process that comes through the Bible experienced in Christian community, not a to-do list designed to help them live the Christian life “right.” This lucidly written book covers ten things Christians don’t have to do to be close to God. Presenting a time-honored approach to the gospel that is beautiful and liberating, Cary skillfully unpacks the riches of traditional Christian spirituality to bring the real good news to Christians of all ages.

CHILDREN’S BIBLE AND BOOKS
By Jack Countryman and Amy Parker
The promise verses in this book are selected from the bestselling International Children’s Bible® to offer comfort and encouragement when a boy is feeling afraid, lonely, worried, angry, dissatisfied, discouraged, sad, rebellious, impatient, or sick . . . and when they need reassurance of God’s protection, love, forgiveness, help . . . and that He listens when they pray. It’s a great way for children to hide God’s Word in their hearts.
